You have to be patient and easy on yourself. I learned the hard way. I beat myself up until I couldn't take it anymore. I insisted I could act "normal" and no one would notice and it came back and hit me in the face HARD. You really have to give this thing time. I am two years on antibiotics and just recently came upon a new acceptance and calm because I felt like I was giving in or losing the battle. Fight it hard but not bitterly or angrily cause you will lose yourself.
