I really feel for you as you have so much on your plate between your kids, 2 jobs, the house, etc.
I'm not a medical doctor so I can not give you advice as far as abx. Only you know how you feel when you are taking them or not taking them.
What I do know is what worked for me. I really dislike sounding like a broken record on this forum when it comes to Dr. Jernigan but did you know that one of the remedies I took called Borrelogen was tested and below are the results (they found more dead lyme bacteria compared to abx):
"I presented research on Borrelogen in 1999 at the International Tick-borne Diseases Conference in New York City, where 500 of the top infectious disease researchers and doctors met to present and discuss research on LD. As far as I know, the research I did of my formulation called Borrelogen is still the only real laboratory verified research out there that documents via blood tests that a natural remedy even works. Remember though, Borrelogen is not treating any disease or bacteria…it is supporting the little-known bioenergetic immune system. That research can be read in my book, Beating Lyme Disease, 2nd edition.
* In that research we used a LUAT test, that essentially is a urine test where the lab counts how many pieces of dead Lyme spirochete bacteria were found in the patient’s urine, usually after a week of taking antibiotics.
A positive LUAT was where the lab found 32 pieces of dead Lyme bacteria in your first morning urine. A highly positive test was if the lab found 45 pieces of dead Lyme bacteria.
After our patients took 1 dropper TID of Borrelogen for a week almost all of the LUAT tests were between 100 to greater than 400 which is where the lab quits counting!
The bioenergetic immune system of the body was able to kill off massive amounts of the bacteria. (Due to the frequencies produced by the body as a result of the installation of the new “software” from the remedy.)"

If there any way you can find the time to take a detox bath most evenings before you go to sleep? If toxins are not eliminated they get recycled back into the body making one feel much worse. I'm just very concerned about
your toxin overload and what you can do about
it on your tight schedule.
12 years well ~ used Dr. Jernigan's protocol from his book about
Biological Medicine (used Borrelogen, Microbojen and Neuro-Antitox).
I still detox even though healed and drink Green Vibrance. I come back to help others for others helped me when I was sick. Pay it forward!
