Thanks for bringing up this subject!
I'm very interested also. I had symptoms for 9+months. Treatment now for 4 months. I feel I've improved maybe 20%. The severe dizziness and short term memory loss are almost gone at least! But I'm still in pain almost daily, fatigued and energyless.
I was thinking that I would be able to return to work after 6 months. I'm really worried that's not going to happen! I'm not guarenteed my job back after 6 mo. I'm also starting to realize that I probably wont be able to return to work doing 8 hour shifts. This means I will probably have to find a new job, which totally sucks!!!
So I would like to hear from others how long they were off work before returning and how they had to modify their job.
Thanks for everyone sharing - Lisa
p.s. I'm an RN. Should I focus on a new career in educating the medical community on Lyme? Duh, yes.
