So, this is where I stand everyone. I am in great shape, no symptoms except minor twitches, been off abx and herbs for 4 months, and so far so good! Do have some stories to tell with regards to what went on when I stopped everything, but I will provide that info once I post an update on my LLMD visit (which is supposed to be Wednesday)
On the downside, my current pregnancy is not viable, as it was confirmed today. This will unfortunately be my FIFTH miscarriage (holy moly), but I am always one to look on the bright side of things, I am so darn lucky to have 3 healthy kids!! My youngest is now practically a miracle, as she was born inbetween 4 miscarriages.
These miscarriages have absolutely nothing to do with Lyme - all chromosomal abnormalities. Don't know why - age, genetic issues, whatever the case may be, my husband and I are finally putting a real close on the doors of having any more kids. Yes, we wanted a big family, but we are reading the signs, and we will never look back and say we didn't try hard enough!!
I am only 10 weeks pregnant. Yes, it is a loss, but it just wasn't meant to be. God has His plans for all of us, and this was just a part of it.
Thanks for listening everyone, this forum is awesome. My hope is that after the DNC is done, I will recover, and get back to everything as it was before Lyme and before this. But you know what, things will never be the same - you know why, because thru all of the pain and suffering of lyme, including my kids having it - I am a different person, a stronger person, one with much more insight into things and stronger faith. I will exercise, get physically strong again, remain on this this forum, help as many people as I can who have lyme, and write my book!!!
