I am happy to say I have been symptom free for a few weeks. This winter i wasn't sure if I would ever find my way out of the Lyme hole again.

I continue to have quick bouts of tiredness that include an uncontrollable urge to cry. My family actually jokes about it (you have to right?) because all of a sudden my eyes are welling up.

I usually halt the emotions when my eyes well up but yesterday I started crying for a minute and then fell asleep for 2 hours. Saturday was a really busy day, I must have overdid it.

Is this from a damaged nervous system? Will this eventually go away? What might cause this?

Thanks for the replies. Obviously a minor thing but I am curious if anyone else experiences this.

" quick bouts of tiredness that include an uncontrollable urge to cry."

Yes, a damaged nervous system and deficient adrenal function or HPA axis is still very "tired"

Are you taking adrenal support? Adaptogens?

B-vitamins, magnesium, calcium and fish oil are still your best friends, I hope.


And, you still need to be a policeman for your energy bank. Don't let it empty as it just won't fill up that easily. You cannot afford to spend the last reserve but still need to plan - in advance - where to put your energy.

Rest often. Really. This matters.

Keebler,
Thanks for the good advice!

I take adrenal support and the whole gamut of supps. Calcium is one I tend to skip. No more!

I am not sure what adaptogens are. I'll look this up.

Our adrenals are responsible for a lot! Not sure what HPA axis is either but will look this up too.

I find when I feel better I need to push myself back into my old life.

I tend not to plan things as much due to never knowing how I will feel and my self confidence takes a hit when I'm unsure of my abilities. Have to get past this again.

Baby steps right?!!!

Have a good evening.

I'm really to tired to even be here but there are tree trimmers all over the place today so I'm hiding out in my closet with my MAC.

HPA axis - uh . . . hypthalamus - pituitary - adrenal axis.

Really messed up with lyme. You can find a good explanation of how this works if you search at the site for "CFIDS Chronicle"

They have written a lot about it. It's also in Singlton's book:

This book, by an ILADS member LLMD, holds great information about treatments options and support measures:

A brilliant ND (naturopathic doctor) taught me that sudden drops in mood can be from low blood sugar and also from adrenal function bottoming out. And they often go together.
