Thank you everyone who has helped me and given me advice the last 14 or so months. I made the decision to d/c treatment and move on.

Too many things are going on in my life that are only getting worse. The physical pain and anxiety, OCD, rage, and depression is too much to handle anymore. I'm getting nowhere with treatment and have been told it's only going to get worse ( but that's apparently a good thing? Uhh well nothings letting up), Yea no thanks.

I think quite frankly my LLMD is getting concerned with my lack of improvement as well. Good luck to everyone who is sticking through it, its not for everyone. It only brought further devastation to me.

Thank you again to the members who reached out, I am forever grateful and do appreciate it. Maybe in a few months I'll be back on here and will resume. something has to give....You have to be patient in lyme treatment absolutely but I think I'm just not patient enough anymore.

I'm 35, and have immense pressure to be on my own with my career that I can't even begin yet because I am so sick. Thats another reason I'm d/c treatment,
its holding me back too much . 1 step forward 3 steps back.

I am so sorry to be reading this my friend but totally understand your point of view. Treatment is very very hard for most people. Lyme disease is one tough disease believe me and its very very hard to stay in the game. Maybe a break is a good thing for you. I wish you well with your plans to move on and work. I hope that all comes true for you in the near future. Please keep in touch with me and let me know how you are doing.

Antibiotics were way too hard on my body.

Best decision I ever made was to stop antibiotics and try some alternative treatments.

Best wishes and blessings.
