I had an emotional outburst today and was sobbing for 5 to 10 minutes (never did this before) before i fell into a somewhat disturbed light sleep. It was caused by me receiving in the mail a prayer card from a dear aunt (86 yrs old) who herself is struggling with cancer.

For her to take the time and recognize that i am not well and not my normal self when we talk, was too much for me to take.

Since awaking, I have taken a step back. I feel very awkward moving around, brain fog, can't focus on tv program, can't read a few paragraphs w/o losing concentration. If i get up too quick or turn my head too fast, i get dizzy feeling. Very jittery and on edge. Even difficult reading laptop screen.

Was going to run an errand but soon as i got into car, i felt that it would be a mistake to drive. I feel like a 90 yr old but in a 50 yr old body. I have had lyme for probably half those years. But the last 3 months, have been a struggle.

currently on zithro & tindamax & nystaton for bad yeast infection. dx with lyme, bart and mycoplasm in june of this year. Is there anything to take to get me going in the right direction. I'm on various supplements & multivitamins. thanks for any feedback.

Tindamax can cause depression. Did you recently up your dosage?

(You must have a very sweet aunt!!)

That's a lot of tindamax. It can make you really depressed. Hang in there!! [Smile]
