I am one of those unfortunate people that had many unexplained symptoms for years.

I have been on abx for 10 months. Of course many of my symptoms have faded.

One stands out among the rest -- I am becoming a patient person. I am much more tolerant
of people and situations than I have been in years!

Has anyone else noticed this in themselves?

Yes, I noticed that too! Well, what I really noticed was the "lyme rage" when I was really sick. I would fly off the handle at the littlest thing. Now my emotions seem much more controlled and normal, which also means I'm more patient about things.
Great news, thanks for sharing!
Lyme and co-infections since approximately 2002. Diagnosed in 2005. Abx for two years straight, then on and off for another year. Off abx since fall 2008 and feeling great (lyme-wise)! Also diagnosed with lymphomatoid papulosis and slightly low thyroid function.

I have worked in a nursing home for over 20 years, so have learned patience with others, but what I needed to learn was to be patient with myself. I have been too hard on myself in the past, and am learning to be more kind to me, too!

B12 supplements can also help with this symptom...Lyme can deplete one's B12.
