Just wanted to give you all encouragement. I haven't posted often, but have read so many of your posts that have helped me.

After 15 months of treatment, I am working full-time(5 months straight without a day off - I have had paid vacation days). I have good and bad days, but nothing like the past. I am making less money, but an adequate living. I am managing my lyme and yeast symptoms.

I was first ill 22 years ago, hospitalized, and no one could understand what was wrong with me. I was misdiagnosed with parathyroidism. Thank God I didn't have surgery. Two years ago I became very ill with some of the same symptoms. Now I understand that I have been dealing with lyme for years.

My health and life aren't perfect, but I'm so much better. Thank you all for all the information you post. You helped me in so many ways --- and I'm sure that you will continue to do so...........Thanks again

Thanks for posting bellajo. The title of your post "Don't Stop Believing" made me think of the song by Journey.

"Don't Stop Believing" --- that's one of my favorite songs. It's so uplifting.

I am happy that you are doing well. I hope your health continues to improve.

Thank you for posting.

I heard the journey song, got it stuck in my head, and that's what made me write the post. Everyone here has been so helpful.

What's helped is hard to say, I'm on 2 antibiotics (oral), many supplements, LDN, probiotics, diflucan, sleep at least nine hours/night and go to an accupressure appt. weekly.

I just finished a tough week, health-wise. Nothing like a year ago, but had some chest pain, fatigue, off and on sweating. I did work all week. It's just hard to tell which comes first the stress or the symptoms.

I am grateful though, for Lymenet, because for me it showed me that others had symptoms like me, that I had a real diagnosis and there are things a person can do to alleviate some things.

I immediately thought of the song too....

So glad for you and it definitely gives me hope as I have had it for 20 or so years, but they also didn't know what was wong with me. Diagnosed in October 2011, and will be seeing a good LLMD in June....

I hope everyone can get back to health or at least close to what they used to be .

I'm eager to receive my diagnose, I've been through 8 years of hell, struggling day by day and seemingly no doctor was there to tell me what's wrong.

I'm really happy for you that you're feeling better and attending a job.
