Lyme Disease Message Board


Lyme Disease Board Index


Thank you Dorkdad and Romans. I am really happy to be able to give you good news about my health and share how it has happened for me.

Romans, I know what you mean and it is not always a quick thing. It's the American way to get things answered fast. Resting and waiting are things that aren't honored in our society, but they are important in healing and you will get better sooner if you can do them.

I am hoping to be clear in that I am not saying if you think good thoughts you'll get better without doing anything else. That silliness that some doctors say about how it's all in our minds is really frustrating. I think what I'm saying is that we can't forget that our brains are part of our bodies and we have to take into consideration the health and wellbeing of the brain when we are trying to heal. If any levels are off in your body that affect your ability to think or have positive thoughts, I feel like you would be successful a lot quicker if you can address that stuff before you take care of things like joint pain or something like that. Meaning that if you have depression, anxiety, brain fog, hallucinations, voices, obsessive compulsive behavior, or anything like that, you are going to have a hard time caring about much of anything. So if you only have a speck of energy each day, use it to find ways to solve the mind trouble first.

Does that make sense? Once you have a handle on your mind, then you can do the rest a lot easier. A lot of times the problems come from something that the lyme is depleting, but you have to figure out what it is. I think I posted about testing levels before, but some of the things you can start with are neurotransmitter levels, adrenals, thyroid, iodine levels, heavy metals and there are lots more I will try to remember them all or you can look up my older posts.

I have a little more to say, but my daughter is looking for a sweater in my closet and she's asking for help, I'll be back later, hope to hear more from you all in the meantime.

thanks for that great response sleeper. it makes a ton of sense to me. i know my brain stuff has been screwy for a long time and both my llmds have been tretaing it. now especially with my new one here in wi. i am still taking my thyroid, hormomones, iodine, and now lots of other important things he suggested for my brain. i can't tell if they are working yet, but i am hoping they will help. everytime i go to the doc i am amazed by the new things we discover lymes has had a negative affect on. it is a dangerous beast left alone to it's own devices.

i do see what you're saying about if you can't think it makes it hard to be able to care about all the other crap and live a better life. the brain is just such a huge part of the balance in our body, with it out of whack how can we expect to have other systmems in tune. we can't. so your theory is spot on sleeper. and i'm just glad that you have been getting such a great response from how you are fighting the lyme both mentally and physically. it is tryul inspirational and i am so glad to know your story.

gotta go eat some breakfast now..hope you have a great day sleeper.

shanna
