I should have also posted that I think it's important that he's bringing awareness to not only the disease itself but the poor treatment most patients receive from many physicians.

pmm73 -

Thanks for posting. This is very important information - mostly for mainstream (most Lyme patients already know this, unfortunately) but it's very helpful to have the links and risks with mental health discussed and acknowledged openly.

For me, the depersonalization has been so destructive - I've been battling it (unknowingly) for two decades and it has destroyed so many relationships.

Sometimes, posts like this don't get a lot of dialogue on the forum because people just don't need more bad news. But please know that the information is helpful to many people. Glad you shared -

I went dark a few times after my symptoms got out oh hand, lately I've been finding more information that suggests depression and anxiety come from inflammation and not chemical imbalances. It took me almost a year and a half of treatment to get out of the "dark" zone of lyme.

Here's a longish medical study about it, but the evidence is mounting and easy to find on the internet. I doubt that big pharma and the psych establishment really want to explore these ideas, so for the next few decades we'll be dealing with this on our own.

I think it is good that lyme patients know that it is lyme and that they are not crazy. Glad you posted this.

And, glad it does not happen to everyone that gets lyme.

Good Article
