Posted November 22, 2013. When I was sick with Lyme disease I expected to be well in a couple of weeks when I finally figured it out and started antibiotics. Whew, was I in for a surprise. My LLMD (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor) told me I would have to be on antibiotics for at least 6 months. I thought I was going to fall off the examining table. 6 months! What about how horrible antibiotics are for the body, etc.? Little did I know it would be a full year before I could even consider stopping antibiotics, herbs and other medications.
When I finally became patient with the process of healing, I finally starting seeing improvement. It won’t happen over night. Lyme disease and any co-infections are very hard to eradicate. Give your body time. Be very patient and be happy with slow progress. And remember it is going to be one step forward and two steps back. It often was for me. But keep heading in the right direction. Stay very consistent with your treatment. If you have a good LLMD, be compliant!! If you don’t have a good LLMD, get one post haste!
Slow progress is progress. Don’t quit!
