ria, you were right on the bull's eye (no pun intended) when you said, 'This horrible disease robs us of so many things'. Not only does it rob us of our time, money, sleep, and abilities, WORSE, it robs us of our passions. THAT hurts. Bad.
JAMES: I have forgotten if you were tested for co-infections? If you are/were positive, that could explain much of the pain (mental and physical) you are suffering right now.
Bit 1972: Acute and chronic tonsillitis, UTI, miscarraige, appendicitis, hypoglycemia, chronic neck pain w/ crushed vertibrae, chronic severe back pain, mitral valve prolapse, depression, resolution?
Bit Mother's Day 2007: Lyme, Babesia microti, hypothyroidism, EBV, HHV6, Parvovirus B19, low adrenals &misc other hormones, depression, anxiety, more of the above.
