...I notice when I search for threads and go back YEARS, like to 2005 and before, I notice how it is primarily an entirely different cast of characters on these boards. Yes..some are still here. But most are not.

I'm hopeful this means they have made a complete recovery and have moved on.

Unless you're like me and stick around, LOL! I do, because I know what a help this board was to me, so I want to give back now that I'm well.

I wish MORE people like Six, TF, etc, would stick around. It gives me hope that you can and will get better.

I just read an older post as to whether you would classify yourself as "sick, sicker, or sickest."

Compared to some...I believe I'm just sick and do okay, more or less.

My energy is good most days, although I usually crash around 9 PM and sleep like a log. My brain works okay most times, but I do have a few foggy moments. I have no joint pain.

Biggest issues are ear (fullness, ringing..but this seems a bit better.), eye (floaters, light patches at times), balance (getting over Labyrinthitis), and odd leg muscle aches (very mild with occasional twitching of the calfs or thighs.) I also have some sweats / chills from time to time. all minor.

Back in Feb - April these were a lot worse..but got better before I actually started treatment.

Hmmm....so I hope I can make a full recovery. I'm encouraged my CD-57 was 84...higher than most. I'm discouraged I have an abnormal brain spect scan. The bugs are in my noggin.

I'm very impatient. I'm on day 17 of treating with Doxy with 3 day pulses of Flagyl every 2 weeks (just finishing a pulse today.) But I want to be "me" NOW.

My wife is a saint...she has been putting up with my health issues for going on 6 months.

I am someone who has been here for 5 years and has been in treatment the whole time, off and on. I see no end in sight for me.
I usually come here looking for answers to my latest problems, but once in a while I'm able to help someone else.

Some of the "oldies" have left for "political" reasons.
