I just finished my 6th month of IV & oral antibiotics! I am still climbing my mountain & now I’m even closer to the top. This cycle has been the roughest by far. But there are promising changes such as full use of my right hand, improved handwriting, & walking with improved balance.
Lyme Disease also wreaks havoc on your body with random & unusual symptoms, especially when the Lyme is dying off. The herxing increases significantly. It’s like a bad Saturday Night Live skit that is playing out in my life. I experience symptoms like phantom smells or no ability to smell at all. I woke up one night, yelled something at my MBH, & fell asleep right away. My cognitive skills have been the biggest challenge. I am easily confused & it’s hard to follow a conversation.
Fortunately, My Better Half (MBH) has a lot of patience. We we are able to savor the good, laugh at the unusual symptoms (most of the time), & continue to fight. It also gives me hope to find groups with people have been in my position & recovered significantly.
