I've been away for a long time, busy being well, but I know its helpful to hear from people who are past the business of Lyme.

I grew up near Lyme Connecticut, and probably had Lyme Disease and Co-Infections most of my life. I had symptoms since I was a child, but they took my health and strength when I was about 30.

I could barely get out of a chair because of the fatigue, the pain was so great I couldn't sleep at night, and my mind was so confused it became too dangerous to drive.

I got my life back after a Lyme diagnosis and treatment in my mid 40's.

Now I'm a single mom, I run two businesses, I just remodeled an old house (mostly with my own hands), and I run, ski, and play with my friends. (Next challenge and comittment - get enough sleep!)

I ran a 10K this spring, and am now training for a 17 mile Ragnar. After the race I had to walk on just bawling from the emotion of it.

There was a time when I had lost the will to live, and had no concept of being out of pain. I feel like I ran that race for all of us!

The friends I ran with had no clue, and there was no way to explain the victory I felt. I hope they will never be able to understand!

Just want to encourage each of you that you can absolutely get well, so don't give up!

I'll try to stop in from time to time with some thoughts on health and healing. I owe this board so much. You got me through the hard times and back to health. You believed in me when I had no where else to turn. I believe in you!!!

Good for you! I'm glad you came back to say "hi". I think people here could use support from people who have been dealing with this issue of Lyme & the co-infections. Especially, from people who regain their health!

Thanks for the inspiration.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and give us hope! Is your story written anywhere on this site so we can see what helped you and what did not?

I know each case is different and we all respond to different treatments, but the success stories are far and few so any information would be so appreciated.

Thanks so much! And keep on truckin'!!
