I've not seen this topic so I'm bringing it up.
I was infected, most likely in 2001. I have just been dx in 09/13. Between that time frame, I went through years of dealing with and working through issues from severe childhood trauma, (last year finally successfully got through(!) yeah ME!!), and believed I was dealing with Multiple Personality Dissorder, because this is what one Psychologist said, and also one sibling who says she also has it, due to our childhood stuff.
Now, knowing what I know about Lyme/co, I am confident that I DON'T have MPD!!! Everything that looked like it, every possible symptom, are all lyme/co related.
Has anyone else dealt/dealing with this label? This is frustrating for me that all those years I was thinking there were these 'people' inside coming out in personality, and even changing my behaviors. You know though, even though I had been labeled that, I never really believed it. I guess it's true, I really must trust my gut feeling.
I hope this topic doesn't offend anyone. It's not that I don't believe in MPD, or feel it's a negative, so that's not what this is about. It's just to be labled that and it not being MPD, is just one more way ignorance sweeps the truth under the rug.
