This may illuminate reasons why some people have different and/or more severe symptoms than others with Lyme disease. 
The Journal of Infectious Diseases, electronically published 12 November

These results demonstrate in vitro and in vivo that B. burgdorferi has
greater inflammatory potential than B. afzelii and B. garinii, which may
account in part for variations in the clinical manifestations of Lyme

I refuse to stay sick! Period.
