It's difficult to say. You sound in a similar state to me, although I think I might have had Lyme longer than you? I can't remember. I've been untreated for at least 14 years - possibly longer.
I would say try it and see how it affects you. Go in low and just see how you get on. It is powerful and has a good track record, but it might be a bit too much for some. You don't know until you try. I will definitely use it again somewhere down the line, but right now I can't see myself being on it more than a few weeks.
I have photos from when I was 7 and I have bells palsy, I started having migraines really young to so I reckon, seriously I got it about
20 years ago. Just that from 2010 to 2015 I had so much stress and grief in my life, that I struggled to sleep, self medicated with cannabis and booze for years, in extreme excess as well that my body just quit holding up.
My priority is restoring my weight. Then I'll see how things go. The herbs are legit for me and I don't want to mess around with the likes of pharmaceuticals. Doxy really messed up my head, not to mention gut flora. The herbs are slow and steady but I'd happily take that given the circumstances. It would be wanton, for me at least to expect to recover overnight.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
I definitely hear what you are saying.
The fact is I could have had this since childhood and been bitten numerous times. I only say 14 years because that is when I had the big bite that really hit me and put me in bed with the worst fever I've ever known. It's only because it is the fairly recent past that I am able to remember the significant deterioration in my health afterwards and make the link.
However, I also have a tick bite scar on my leg that has been there for as long as I can remember. For many years I didn't even realise that's what it is. I just thought it was some kind of weird skin anomaly until I asked a doctor what it was many years ago. With hindsight, I have had many fevers and period of illness throughout my life, but they were so long ago that I can't make any link between fevers and bites. At 46-years-old my childhood is just too far in the distant past to link anything together. I spent a large part of my childhood playing in woods and rural areas that had deer populations, so it's probably fair to say I have been bitten numerous times. I was always getting bitten by various things as a kid, but Lyme wasn't on the radar at all back then. I wouldn't mind betting that the same thing applies to quite a few of us on here.
If you feel too fragile for disulfiram and are seeing improvement on herbs then stick with what is working. I'd much prefer to be on herbs, but I want something a bit stronger first. You reacted badly to doxy, so I don't know what DSF might do to you. It's all about
our individual tolerance. I have to say that doxy really upset my stomach, but disulfiram hasn't. On the other hand, disulfiram makes me feel awful even when I'm not herxing badly on it but doxy was OK.
You've got to do what works for you really.
