I think St. John's Wort works good for me but I have to remember to take it. That is a good idea. I am not using abx now. I was taking Zhang's herbs but they suddenly caused me to be sleepless. I was waking up every two hours all night for weeks and it seemed to be getting worse. I was so tired I just dumped everything. Last week I saw a homeopathic doctor who started me on cat's claw and vitamins, including a lot of vitamin C and magnesium which gives me diarrhea. He said he would try the rife machine and hydrogen peroxide later. I have no idea if he knows what he is doing. The medical doctor is useless. I told him several times I needed to be tested for co infections but he just ignored me. He joked that if he ever had another patient with lyme I would be the first one he would consult with. That means he admits knowing less than me, doesn't really care, and that is so depressing. I have called the state epidemiologist but he won't recommend anyone. The yahoo lyme support group for Montana has a lot of people that can't get help. The nearest LLMD is in Seattle - about 900 miles. Someone told me their neighbor just found out he is infected and he has been so sick he cannot work. I am trying to contact him to see how he is doing and if he has found a doctor that is knowledgeable. Many people here cannot even find a doctor that believes they could have lyme. I just read lithium is supposed to help your brain - I bought some but forgot what it was for and never tried it. It is in a box full of vitamins and supplements I read about in various books. At one point I was taking 25 pills a day.
This sounds despairing but I am doing ok - just having a bad day or two. I 'll get myself fired up again soon. Thank you for your help.
