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.

Yes I have a great Lyme doctor. I think I may need different antidepressants at this point cause what I am taking is not working.

Thanks for your support:-)

What is your liver support? Your adrenal support?

Are you getting plenty of protein? Gluten-Free?

All those will help lift your mood. Really. Many find antidepressants can have the opposite effect.

What is the level of Magnesium you are taking? Turmeric or Curcumin? Those are both wonderful helpers in many respects.

sunshine, we fight so hard to stay productive and keep our lives going and this is actually harmful to our sick bodies.

Our bodies are screaming at us to stop. Let me rest. The human body is a unbelievable machine.

Just stopping and saying.....I am ill and it's okay if all I accomplish today is a shower. My body needs help. Rest is good, rest is what I need.
