After 6 months of zith and mepron, then biaxin, then ketek, then bicillin for 11 months, zith 4 more months and mepron again for 2 months the tide is turing and I'm getting better. Really better.

My immune system is fighting back finally. I'm not done yet but I am working 3 days a week and teaching pilates class twice a week.

Two years ago I thought I'd probably die soon. I'm not 100% but I can live like this.

I used to have no brain left and was bedridden for half days, almost all day for days on end. Two bad weeks out of four.

I think it was mostly Babesia and neurological lyme.

It happened really fast. Like in a few weeks the tide just turned and I felt the difference.

Oh, YIPPEE!!!

My WA-1 buddy Surg!~

I am so happy to hear this.

Sounds like it hasn't been an easy road for you, but you've really hung in there.

Makes me realize my pathetic little two-month attack on babesia was perhaps just a skirmish, and no wonder I'm back at square one.

But your post gives me great hopes for diving in again!

Please keep us posted and don't go away, 'kay?

[kiss]

Michelle

Horray Surg! [woohoo]

I'm so happy for you. [Smile]


It's really good to hear of it actually happening. (especially 3 months into Babs treatment for the first time.)

Thank you for sharing this and the hope connected with it.

Yay, for turning tides! [Smile]

That's awesome!! Don't forget to come back when you're well and add your story to the Success Stories link!!!

Babs holds a lot of people back. That's why it's so important to treat it also, no matter what the test says.
