Well .... the goal of treatment is to get well enough that we don't have to focus on our health so much. The success stories just move on.
There are some people who have done well with treatment. A couple stop in to post from time to time - Denise comes to mind.
But mostly people who are doing substantially better post for another month or two and then get on with their lives. The people that hang around are those of us who are continuing to struggle with recovery. And it's like my Dr says - she doesn't have any patients with just one thing wrong - everyone has two or more conditions that make treatment more difficult. We often talk about "beating Lyme" - but it is the rare person who is ONLY treating lyme.
So don't assume that there aren't success stories.
But I do have a couple of success stories. There is a couple that live nearby. They contracted Lyme when they were visiting their son who was in the Army - Ft. Bragg I think. Took forever to get diagnosed - and he had classic bullseye rashes.
So he had pancreatitis and these horrible rashes that kept coming back - sometimes covering most of his body. She had the joint pain problem and fatigue. Both were under treatment by Dr R here in Seattle for 1 1/2 yrs. Last time I saw them, they had just stopped treatment. Both were very upbeat and feeling well. And if they start to relapse - well ... they know exactly what to look for.
