This is now the third time I have been bitten by a tick. Have to say it is interesting knowing so much about Lyme and watching the symptoms take hold again with awareness of what it is and what it is doing. It is kind of like the old movie "Flowers for Algernon". Feeling a bit like Charlie watching my intelligence slip away. Spent the weekend trying to remember who the vice president is. One thing I do notice is how is clouds your ability to do the right thing. I know my sauna helps. I know the rebounder helps. I know diet helps. I know the rife machine can help. And I don't feel like making the effort to do all I can to make this go away again. Wonder why it sucks your ambition the way it does? I know I got well before. I know what it feels like to be well. And I do little to get there again because????

It's because Lyme messes with the brain and affects  executive function, which causes impaired motivation/follow-through.  I have it too...there are things on my list of things to do that have been there for a long time...but I just can't seem  to muster the motivation to actually get them done.
 
Sorry to see that you're on your 3rd bite/Lyme battle...that sucks!

Lyme is pretty good then at providing itself with a good place to live I guess. The host can do things to help kill the Lyme but the Lyme makes the host not bother. Have a meeting I am supposed to go to tonight for a club I am in. It is just a networking thing tonight and a pot luck dinner. It is too hard to decide what to bring so I am not going. And I am the vice president of the group.

ttlittlestar, I can sympathize. I wonder that same thing about myself. I know that regular exercise does wonders for me in all respects, but I don't do it. I have a whole internal discourse going on about it, sometimes encouraging myself, sometimes admonishing myself for not trying harder, but still I hesitate. I love working out, but I am afraid because every time I try it I hurt myself. I'm losing self respect, though, letting fear impede me from doing what I know is best. I also put off doing detox baths, though until just this week I thought I needed to do them daily and that was just too much for me. Three days a week seems doable, but so far, I have only done it once this week. Sometimes I think I am my own worst enemy in this thing.

I hope you will be doing better soon.

I have days when I am still in denial I am sick. Then I remember my + results. Even now, I am really dizzy, and I keep saying to myself, maybe it's normal, maybe everyone is like this...

Simela, your post made me smile. I did that for months, even when I felt terrible. Once I asked my LLMD if he was sure and he looked puzzled, leafed through my file to the test results, and told me there was no ambiguity about it, I had Lyme, babesia, and bartonella (x2). Sigh, I guess it was just hopeful thinking on my part. Now when I start to think that way I remind myself that babesia RNA is in my blood cells. There is certainly no arguing with that.

Have you tried anything new for your dizziness?

I am going to say that denial is not a bad place to live. Had breast cancer in 1990/modified radical mastectomy/chemo, etc. etc. Haven't bothered with a mammogram or even an exam for the last 15 years..... I keep hoping I'll be more aggressive and compliant with the Lyme thing...... Isn't everybody dizzy most of the time????? !!!!!
