to suffer lifelong neurodegeneration due to

similarity between OSP A and our neuronal proteins

even if we do successfully treat our TBI's (assuming

this is possible)?

Things (including neuro things) can improve and dissappear with treatment.

Just so you know lyme can make things seem doomy all on its own (like a symptom).

Hope you start feeling better soon. Hang in There [group hug]

Hi adamm,

That is the disease, or the treatment, speaking...

I am a success-story-in-progress. Just a bit further along than you, and wishing you the same good results. Just keep treating and hang on!

Me, too ... a success story in progress. I'm feeling better every day!

There was the day that if I did ONE thing I was productive, and sometimes that one thing was showering.

Today I got cleaned up, then went on FOUR errands!!! I was busy all day.

Before I couldn't even go to the grocery alone because I would get too disoriented ... so, yeah, you can get better, even in your head. [Smile]

This has been the best day so far after two plus years of continual treatment. No pain, only needed a short nap mid day, optimistic good day, and

if the Ravens win it will be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.....!!! [Big Grin]

I'm tremendously better than I was 2 years ago when I started treatment. I can work full time again! I'm still somewhat symptomatic, and I still have my bad days, but some days (like today, whoohoo!) I am actually pain free... and I've been infected since at least 1988, probably longer....babs, lyme, mycoplasma fermentans, and very probably bart, too.

Great thread!!

Me too, I got into remission for about 3.5 months, but got a relapse now. But I don't FEEL sick at all. My lyme doctor 'discovered' that after testing me energetically.

I have a very 'normal' life, I somehow know I'm fighting the last of it. It was foolish of me to have dropped immuno- modulators/-stimulants after being totally symptom free and feeling soo great.

If no permanent damage happened, you can (and will) get back to 100%!!! I'm totally multi- tasking things for a very long, I'm more energetic than most healthy people around me. No way I feel I got permanent damage, even though I had some doubts when my brain started to function again.

Rust yes, for lack of use of my brain, but no damage! I don't feel, in my case, any permanent damage at all.
