So, I have Lyme disease. Maybe on top of CFS, maybe in place of CFS, not totally sure. Because I've been sick for 2 1/2 years and Lyme only just showed up in my bloodwork, but it's a tricksy little disease so I'm not really sure. I only have the Bburgdorferi strand and none of the co-infections (according to this bloodwork), so that's a good thing, I think. Really, I could barely understand the letter she sent me; it was all in doctor talk. But I'm glad to actually get some informative blood work back, instead of the usual, "Hmm, are you sure you're sick?" (Yeah, yeah I think I am. Thanks though.)
Also, some people have asked me how I contracted Lyme disease. This is a simple equation:
PLUS my big fat indoor-outdoor cat:
"Please, Robyn, let me outside so I can catch MORE disease-ridden ticks with my luxurious fur!"
EQUALS me with Lyme disease.
Glad we straightened that out.
