Thanks Kryptar. I do appreciate the offer. My intention is to help others and myself at the same time in educating about Lyme. I have a fantastic resource here in my housemate who has been through a battle with Lyme just in the past couple of years. She is like an encyclopedia of information on Lyme (and many other interesting things) so she is my support system.
My immediate problem (or at least one of them) is that I have serious memory issues and have difficulty retaining anything unless it is pounded into my head. That is one of the reasons for this thread as it gives me the opportunity to pound it into my own head!
One of the other members asked me in a PM what symptoms I am experiencing. It is difficult for me to come up with that list because the list is so long. My housemate (whom I am trying to come up with a name for) read his message and laughed,saying that I did not have enough time in the day to write it out.
I did come up with a very short list of symptoms this morning in my reply to him but be aware it is not comprehensive in any way shape or form. Here is what I came up with this morning.
sleep dysfunction (I am suffering from poor sleep and not enough. Some sleep too much)
no dreams and/or dream recall
severely low libido
stabbing pains in ribcage (seriously. Stabbing. Like an ice pick.)
severe tinnitus (ringing in ears- mine is much, much worse than it was)
severe weight loss
unable to retrieve words I know
lack of confidence
