Re: Dr Visit today
Hi Lymegranny, I'm glad you were able to see the doc sooner than Dec 4, that's a long time to wait when you are sick and feeling depressed. I guess I'm not surprised that he didn't really know that much about lyme, but you do so it's good that you straightened him out. More lyme patients need to be brave and inform their doctors when they know that something isn't right, or as you say "old school."
I know a lot of people do gain weight when they are being treated for lyme because it's too hard to exercise when your whole body hurts. One thing that helped me was getting an infrared sauna. You lose more weight in there than doing aerobic exercise and you just have to sit still and sweat. I have a cd player in mine, so it's easy to pass the time listening to music or a book on cd.
I have been off the boards for a little while trying to get the kids ready for school. They go back on Thursday and we are looking forward to it, the kids are too they said.
Looking forward to talking to you more.
