Lyme Disease Story (8)
I’m a mom of 2 (a 5 year old and a 2 year old). I found out I had Lyme about 6 weeks ago and have no idea how long I’ve had it.
My doctor and I have been trying to figure out what’s wrong with me for the past two years. I’ve dealt with depression, major insomnia, foot, hip and lots of other joint pain, heart palpitations and increasingly feeling like I’m losing my ability to remember anything, find my words, or just manage my life like I used to.
When I talk to my friends about it they say “Me too! That’s just being a mom!” I wish I had some people in my life that could understand how I feel. I was relieved to find out there is a reason I have felt like I’m losing my mind and exhausted all the time, but it also feels so intangible and isolating… I really hope that all this mess will get sorted out for me, Lyme messes a lot with out brains and body like no other infection does.
