After being dismissed by so many doctors for so many years, reading online became the only way to try and find out what was wrong. In doing so, the mind (at least mine) starts wandering and thinking the worst.
Eventually, even after getting a diagnosis of Lyme, it's like you have developed a medical form of PTSD. It becomes a form of survival because the only one in the world who believed something was wrong was "me."
And my feet hurt, so now you have my mind going .
ughhh I remember googling...and thinking Parkinsons, MS and ALS.... my GP sent me to a neurologist (after seeing two different endocrinologists, and an ENT Dr.) I sat in the waiting room saying to myself "please let this be MS"
I had decided that was the 'better' one to get....
Such trauma, right?
I'm pretty sure I have the PTSD....the above added to my severe symptoms at different times prior to treatment.
I think my husband may also have the PTSD. He was really worried about
Hopefully time will heal that.
