Pushing yourself with lyme is the worst thing to do. You might think you are babying yourself or complaining by resting but it is really the best thing. I NEVER push myself anymore. It is just not worth it. With a disease that can be as devastating as lyme, it will take a long time before you feel "better." As my dr. described it, it is like climbing a mountain, there will be lots of hills and valleys but as long as you don't fall all the way back down, you are making progress. Don't forget, lyme cycles ever 28 days or so so maybe you are feeling better and then worse when the bacteria cycle. Also, detoxing is so important. I used to think people were crazy (Lol) saying to detox as I had never thought I "needed" it. Drinking lots of lemon water, taking magnesium and watching what I eat all have helped me. I am two years on antibiotics and am getting there, slowly but surely. Hang in there, you'll get there too. (Do you have any co-infections and if so, have you ever been on doxy?)
