I just wanted to comment on something you said about the sunshine. I have been told by many Lyme sufferers that the sunshine can make you worse but I absolutely LOVE it and feel so much better when I get a daily dose. The more sun the better I feel. And exercise is crucial for me to keep my spirits up, so keep up with those two things at least. I am going for my walk in the sunshine now! (: D
In short, I can give up cigarettes, alcohol, sugar, and even caffiene to get rid of this crud. But I don't believe that I can, or want to, give up sunshine or nature.
Now I realize I have done this backwards. I have not given up cigarettes, sugar or caffiene (I don't drink because I'm recovering - it's a long story
).... and I can't tell you the last time I got any real sun or walked a path.............. hmmmmm, Is it true that I have been "wrong" all along? ARRRGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
