Am I the one who said "this was my year" "this year I am going to get better" - etc., etc? I must have been on pain meds when I wrote that - haha!
LOL!! I know right.
Im sorry that ur shrink thinks your crazy. My shrink understands me and Lyme disease.. or maybe shes just playing along and really thinks im a nut.
Maybe it's time to find a new one. I have tons of articles on psychiatric forms from lyme disease and all the jazz if you can get her to read it. Lyme can causes a whole host of psychiatric conditions from bipolar to hallucinations to depression and many more. Your best chance of disability is to have as many medical visits as possible so they know your really sick. Mine was approved in record time, a month after a filed. I had numerous ER visits, doctor visits every week for a couple of years time. The only way you can win is if you have a record of all of this. Seeing a shrink is also very good for your case. You need her to understand how disabled that you are and how much it effects everyday things. Your too tired to do anything and when your not sleeping your in too much pain to get out or go anywhere. You need to make your disability clear so doctors can overlook the "oh but you look healthy" thing I have actually had doctors tell me that I look really healthy so it must be in my head.
Lyme is invisible except for inside our bodys, sometime that is a benefit and sometimes that is a challenge.
