I have a question for you...in your signature it says healed from the tick borne infections...how do you know you are healed and that it won't come back anymore? I watched Under Our Skin last night and am so disheartened by that movie and have so many questions now!
I'm so sorry that it's taken me this long to see this post!!
Dr. Horowitz says that if you can keep symptom free for either 2 o 3 years (sorry, I forgot which it is!), you can generally stay healthy from then on if you can avoid stress and keep your immune system up.
I made it 3 yrs and 5 months before getting reinfected. The reason I believe it's a reinfection instead of a relapse (I've been asked this a lot), is because of how I reacted to the tick bite. It stayed raised, very angry and incredibly itchy for 3 weeks. This is not normal for me at all - bites may itch for as long as a week with me, but not usually any longer than that, and they certainly don't stay raised and angry that long.
It's all very confusing because we just don't have enough research that has been done as of yet - but we will get there one day!!
