Re: Doubting myself..again
I could totally relate to your post. I was told I had CFS, was a depressed, bored 49 yr old woman. I was given names to psychologists to see. I told my former GP that no one can help me unless they find the cause of my illness. I told him I was Sick and no amount of therapy was going to help that. I went through this for almost 2 years before finding my LLMD. On my first office visit he told me I wasn't crazy, it wasn't in my head and he was going to find the reason. I think he saved my life.
I know I shouldn't believe everything the new GP says. I mean he hardly knows me or what I have been through. I guess it isn't just the GP, but trying to get co-workers, friends and even family to believe me was just as stressful. So now of course I am once again reading everything I can about Lyme just to be sure. Your posting made me feel much better and I really appreciate you taking the time to write. It has only been 4 months since I was diagnosed so I am still in the what if it is something else thought. I have had total exhaustion since starting the abx and that is really frustrating too. Thank you so much again. This site has so much information.
I was diagnosed with hypothyroid in October and am also on medication for that. My adrenals are basically not working either so I have other things going on too.
