I'm so sorry you're having such a tough time! That does sound like a terrible day.
I'm still very new to Lyme, but I can tell you that not only does it cause brain fog- it also messes with your emotions. That is one of my worst symptoms. The combination of the two can really make you feel like you're "losing it."
But you can do this! It's scary, and crazy (oops, almost said "scazy and cary"), but you can do it. Do you have friends or family you can talk to for support? And remember that everyone here is here for you as well!
I'll be praying tommorow is a better day for you!
EDIT: The only place I have found "slow movement" is on Parkinson's websites. They say it is an early symptom...along with gait difficulty, which I also have. The only thing I don't have is tremor. (Knock on wood)

Jendays, many people with Lyme have the disconnected feeling you describe. I have a name for it: "OPS" which stands for outer-planetary surrealness. It can be very scary but realize it is the disease. It will get better.
It sounds to me like the antibiotics are stirring things up. I agree with kandinsky, it is normal to feel worse before feeling better and it can take time. Take things one day at a time and when that is too hard take them one minute at a time.
