I was also stressed out... Besides being a workaholic, I had bought my first house, got married, trying to be "superwoman" by doing everything all at once and when a bug bit me, I was a perfect candidate for getting sick as my immune system was compromised by all the stress.
I learned much from getting lyme though, learned how to slow down, enjoy life instead of killing myself working, learned what my stress "trigger" points are so I can take a good look at myself, etc. Also learned how to eat healthier, learned about detoxing, learned more than I wanted to and I'm still learning!!
