I have spent another entire day accomplishing nothing. I don't have any energy to even get out of bed. I use to be so productive and now just getting a shower is all I can handle.
I have pretended for three years not to be sick, I got out of bed went to work and school, however I can't pretend anymore. I can't do it anymore.
I have nothing else to lose at this point because I have lost everything. I have never felt so alone in my life. I want this to be over I want to wake up and have my life back.
I keep telling myself that five years from now people, doctors everyone will know what LYME is and they will be able to understand what it does. And if that happens maybe my family will understand what it has been like. I am trapped in a nightmare and I want out!

Unfortuately you wont' just get over this. You have to fight it with everything you have. Do you have a Lyme doctor who is treating you? Make sure he understands your feelings. There are things he can prescribe to help you feel more in control of your life until the load of toxins you are carrying is reduced and you start to feel better. It is a battle and if you give up they win. DON'T GIVE UP. But do find a doctor if you don't have one. You don't have to go through it alone.
