Take a deep breath, and make some plans.
For Saturday give yourself a Big Day Off. Do all the things that make you feel better. (Healthy things not the wicked treats that feel good and then make you worse, like chocolate!) Promise yourself to not stress about anything. And keep telling yourself that all these symptoms are temporary, that it is the bacteria raising havoc but they are on their way out.

Are you doing anything for relaxation like yoga or gentle exercise? Can you get a massage. Or even just have a very cheerful friend come over to tell you a few funny stories (ask them to pick up some lunch on the way over).

You are working hard to get better -- well done!

I am so sorry that you are going through such a hard time right now!!! Be kind to yourself on your days off this week!! Do something to pamper yourself! Take a nice long detox bath, go on a picnic, something that would be relaxing for you - heck!! stay in bed an entire day!!!

Stress is such a hard thing for a Lymies' body to handle, it sure doesn't seem to take much stress for our bodies to start to unravel.

One of the things I have come to appreciate is that with these tick-born infections, nothing ever stays the same for long - at least that is the way it is for me. Things always change. With that being said, it does not in any way mean that I don't need help to get through those times, just that it'll only last for so long before it changes again.

Hang in there!! And try to do some detoxing, if you don't already! :)
Even the mightiest oak tree was once a little nut who held it's ground!!! May we all find peace along the journey to find healing. "Absence of proof is not proof of absence" - Dr. Edwin Masters, great LLMD & researcher -RIP

jennie - I feel that way too, it just never ends. Not just one thing after another, but often, one weird thing after another. After years of misdiagnosis, I'm accustomed to investigating my own symptoms, but often can't find an answer. And if I went to the doctor's office every time something new went wrong, I'd be a fixture there. If I went to the ER every time I had chest pains and other symptoms indicative of a cardiac emergency, I may as well pitch a tent in the parking lot. It's very stressful to be bombarded constantly with symptoms and unable to discern the source, and unsure when it is prudent to see a doctor, when it is prudent to just wait it out. Like Traveler, for me things usually don't stay the same for long. That is the litmus paper for my medical decisions now. If something new crops up, and it doesn't dissipate in 2 or 3 days, or if it keeps getting worse, or it is unbearable (and with Lyme, I'm betting we all have much higher standards for unbearable than most people) then I seek help. Not that it is always useful to do that. I've been trying to find out what's wrong with my left leg for a week now, and one GP, one ER physician, and one LLMD later, I still have no idea what is wrong and where to go next. Maybe you have had similar experiences.

If you keep feeling this way and your attempts to alleviate your pain by relaxing, maybe drinking some chamomile tea, eating easily digestible foods, then were it me, I'd get it checked out. The stress of worrying about it won't help in recovery. I hope you feel better soon.

I have Lyme; it doesn't have me.

I work in retail at the home depot and i am climbing ladders, lifting,bending, and walk a ton. I weeded in my garden this past monday and i so over did it cause the back of my legs are still hurting. the nexted day I couldnt even move :(
