I am really scared I feel just awful, and I have sunken into a whole of depression over the last 4 months, not fro the news but from how I feel. Please give me some advice. I feel sick, so sick, tired, and totally out there. My career has suffered greatly, and I am the mother of two boys under 6. My husband tells me to not be negative. I told him I was so Sick I felt like blowing my well you know the rest. My doctors apt. isn't until March 1st. But it seems as if maybe the doctors dont know that much anyway...from some of the sites I have seen..Please help. tell me ill be OK. I was bitten 3 years ago, and I had a bulls eye, and I went to the doctors office immediately. They gave me a shot, and oral anti antibiotics and told me I would be ok. Guess what, I'm not.... shakehead

I understand how scary and upsetting this is. You need to go to a lyme literate doctor and try to read as much as you can. I was in the same boat just a few weeks back. I was diagnosed with CFIDS/Fibro in 2003 and was getting progressively worse. I finally went to a lyme literate doctor, diagnosed chronic lyme/co-infections and just started treatment.

Some of the information on lyme is downright scary but this forum has helped me tremendously. There is a great amount of knowledge, support, encouragement and compassion. And how could I foget - determination, courage and perserverence. lol

Please know that you are not alone in this. You're finally on the right track towards getting better. Hang in there and let us know when you go to the doctor.

wantogetbetter good thing you found out you had lyme at 3 years, the longer you have this the harder it is to kick, ive had it since 1992 and previously had a bogus dx of cfs/fibro as have many others on here.

 if you dont have one already find a good llmd, with the proper treatment you will get better.

my llmd has taken me from about 47 wicked symptoms down to the last three and I started treatment in december of 2007
