Welcome to our community!!
I too would encourage you to read through our "New to Lyme? Start here" thread, as it's packed with helpful information that you might have not seen before.
Actually, the spirochetes can be seen in the blood with a special microscope known as dark field.
3.5 yrs in treatment is a long time!! I was infected for 40 yrs and healed in only 2 yrs (although that was quick by most standards) - I hope you have seen some improvements in that amount of time!
Please let us know if you have any questions or if there is anything that we might be of help with!!
