  1. I’ve had chronic Lyme for 9 years and have now almost done a year with very little symptoms…please see my post from today, it may be useful…keep fighting Stacie!!

    • Thank you for sharing that post. I’m glad to hear that you have taken your life back from lyme and hope you continue to feel better each and every day. Unfortunately, I’ve tried many different things and been on and off antibiotics for years and had a PICC line to receive IV antibiotics in 2011. After 4-5 months of treatment, I had to remove the line early due to contact and allergic reaction dermatitis even though I was supposed to have it for at least 6-8 months. I felt better but my symptoms were only masked and came back within a few months. I’m now probably sicker than I’ve ever been and antibiotics in my case cause more harm than good because my immune system is so weak (and the lyme bacteria has this way of disguising itself so your body doesn’t see it as bad bacteria and won’t attack it). I completely agree with you that you have to be the one to trust your judgement and make decisions you think are best. Thank you again for your encouraging words- I know that you can relate when I say it’s the most frustrating thing sometimes to deal with
