purpleyogamat's Lyme Disease Journey

purpleyogamat's Lyme Disease Story

Undiagnosed for years - through most of childhood. Was labeled a "sick" child - frequent colds and illnesses. Started seeing doctors as an adult - was sent to therapists and psychiatrists. A lot of mental health misdiagnoses. A lot of psychiatric meds that didn't work, made things worse. Found current doctor 6 years ago - started the search for what was causing my symptoms. Was able to work up until 3 years ago. When I had to stop working, started looking harder. Doctor was ready to diagnose me with Lupus, when they jokingly brought up Lyme Disease as the only other thing they could think of. I was certain I didn't have Lyme, until I started reading. Called doctor and got tested. First tests came back negative - didn't know to run through specialty labs. Reran tests - came back positive. Have been treating since Jan 31, 2011. Off and on. My body does not handle multiple treatments well so it is a slow process.
