im sorry that everyone is sick including myself,

but it just seems pointless to treat this crap,

disease, mind **** acid trip bull****, everybody

that treats is way sicker and worse off, so ya

ill admit it, im suffering all the time but its a

baseline suffering, that i dont want to get

worse, i dont even no whats wrong with me,

probably ****en lyme, but i have no proof so im

self diagnosed whatever, but to treat means im

gonna get worse, my anxiety is gonna get worse,

my derealisation or lyme brain or brain fog is

gonna get worse, my dizzines is gonna get worse,

my mood is gonna get worse, my sleep worse,

nightmares worse, i just cant take it, this ****

has me so scared i wont even eat one piece of

doxy or drink one glass of herbs, i dont no what

to do what do you guys think, ive never treated

once and im frying like im on mushrooms 24/7 and

my whole nervous system is ****ed, im tough as

nails and im the biggest pussy when it comes to

even doing something about this, if ive been

stuck like this for 2 years then i dont think ill

ever get back to where i was, any sugg would be

considered, no horror stories, thats all i ever

All I can say is I got worse and worse when I was undiagnosed and treating everything except Lyme and co-infections.

I actually felt great on my first few months of meds. I herxed, but I had energy and clarity I had not had in decades.

It felt like a miracle.

I was also scared to take so many antibiotics. It took me a few months to work up to pediatric doses of three meds. I had plenty of crappy days, but I had good ones, too.

Now, I'm in year five and feeling good most of the time. I tolerate crazy amounts of antibiotics. I still have to take good care of myself, eat well and detox, but the really bad days are long gone.

Yes, it is totally worth treating this disease.

You could have a parasitic infection. Symptoms are similar to Lyme. Google parasite symptoms and check the symptom list for parasites at Humaworm. You can start with half the dose of humaworm or Parastroy.

Whether you have Lyme or not, antiparasitics and salt/c is what worked for me after 4 yrs of abx did not,

Try and get out of the fear and take one step at a time. You have to start somewhwere to get your life back.

you already know what you gotta do. if i could start over i'd do salt c plus. it can get worse when u think it can't.

treatment doesn't always suck. some people feel better. you need a co infection panel done as u know u have lyme at least. mms doesn't work. salt c is cheap and doable and can cover all infections and for some

I contribute to the horror stories, but I was "lucid" in February and some of march. It wasn't that long ago, it can happen, keep goin. Take what you have to to get through the day. You can do it. It's hard and sux, but when we're in the middle of it, do we have a choice?

I agree you need treatment and it sounds like you've already consulted with a LLMD? I am much better than I was. Treating was hell but got me to a much better place. I'm not in remission yet but I'm better.

My advice to you though is to not let people on here diagnose you. There are some that try to give very specific diagnoses and my worry with that is that we are in such a vulnerable state that we take something and run with it.

I've done it myself many times. Someone on here will tell you "Oh, with your symptoms you DEFINITELY have this or that and you HAVE to do this or that". That can be very dangerous advice to a vulnerable, sick person.

I know everyone's intentions are good but we are not doctors and we cannot dianose. Yes, we all probably have a lot more knowledge and experience with this disease than the majority of doctors out there but please don't take recommendations on here and self treat. Do you have a LLMD?
