I was on here and have not been in a while. My Lyme has gotten worse. I now have been having tons of muscle and bone pain, tons of fatigue, and for the past month tons of low to high grade fevers between 99.4 to 101.2. The fevers are usually at night or after dinner. The fevers are accompanied by heavy feelings in my eyes, headaches, severe fatigue, and a lot of time diarrhea(though I have other G.I. issues that contribute to this). I was supposed to get hooked up with IV medications, but the Lyme clinic here at Rhode Island Hospital back in April only made recommendations that for it, and it was up to my PCP to set it up. Yet, when the PCP tried her hardest(even til this day), she never got a response back and they have been playing phone tag like crazy. The saddest part is that my summer is not going as planned. I wanted to do so much and have even planned a trip to Martha's Vineyard for the end of this month, but I fear that due to my constant weakness, I may not get anything that I wanted out of it. I wanted to go to the beach everyday and do fun activities, but due to this I only been to the beach a few times, which really causes me to become severely fatigued the next day. I have been literally living on excitement and motivation. This is how I was able to go to the beach, move into my new apartment, and will use it to go to the vineyard. Plus, having Asperger's helps with this "motivation": sad to say that Asperger's is helping me be able to live life and without it I would be lying in a bed all day. Unfortunately, I find myself lying in a bed or in my house constantly napping all day even more. I also have been struggling with constant neck pain, to a point where today I was in the E.R. because it was that bad. The E.R. doctor, who was so nice, said it was from the Lyme. But the hospital that I went to was not the one that has the Lyme clinic :
, which sucks. Now, I must wait again for ever, but I am going back to the doctor and calling her this week. I just hope it gets straightened out soon. Well, I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.
