I have bartonella and Lyme and I was wondering if the following are common symptoms. I really cannot stand to be around people, I have become a misanthropist, I really want people around me to pretend I don’t exist. I don’t know if this is part of my illness, I feel that it’s difficult for me to be around people because of the anxiety/rage/irritability/apathy/derealization/depersonalization, but I don’t know. If anyone can relate please feel free to share, Thanks.

Hello and welcome to our community,

These symptoms that you are experiencing can be from the infections. I have seen posts here before about the exact symptoms you are describing .

Many symptoms can overlap among the different infections but Bartonella seems to cause a lot of these issues for members.

I am very sorry that you have to go through this and I please understand that this is not the real you, but the infections causing it.

Please ask questions or reach out for support when ever you need to.

Others that have had this same situation just may not be online right now, so keep checking back for responses.

Hang in there and know that you are not alone with this.

Are you currently treating with an Lyme literate MD or NP?

Also detoxing is very important.

We do encourage new members to read our"New to Lyme" start here thread at the top of the page.

It had good and helpful information on symptoms, detoxing, testing and so much more.

Take care and i wish you the best of healing and soon!!!

Hi Alexis, welcome!

I'm sorry that you're experiencing those symptoms.
As Goshawk said - there's a lot of symptom overlap....and it's difficult to determine what infection is causing the symptom.


Do you have a LL Dr.....or need help finding one?

I had similar symptoms when I was undiagnosed and very sick.
I know it is hard. It will pass with treatment.
I knew my concentration was off - people would talk to me and I would be so slow in responding, I know they couldn't possibly get where I was coming from. Some people were very quick at being rude,
It's just the illness - be kind to yourself.
