Been on Rocephin since 2/25/09. LLMD hopes to keep me on in 6-12 months, but my CD 57 went DOWN from a 19 in January to a 16 in April so she put me on the Doxy. So now the herxing is awful, but today I actually noticed that it was not quite as bad. My neuro issues definitely got exacerbated by the Rocephin. My very first infusion was at the hospital and I had to stay like an extra 2 hours because I could hardly walk. They didn't want me to leave but my mom drove me home. And I felt so vulnerable in the hospital and my brain wasn't working right and I just wanted to get the heck out of there. Before the doxy, the herxes are cyclical - every other week or so the neuro gets bad to the point where I look drunk - I stumble, can't find the right words, stutter, and have some nasty Lyme rage.
So I'm getting ready to head out and go do something for ME. Getting my hair cut and colored - haven't done it since January. It's going to wear me out, but having it shorter will make it easier to take care of and I need to do something for me.
Look at me - I'm rambling - another lovely thing I do - get off topic - sorry :(
