  •  Oh, I know the tippy stuff (15+ / 0-)

    ...and the fall-y stuff, too.  Bannisters, chairs, walls, shopping carts.  Neuropathy was also unhelpful as I couldn't feel my feet when standing after sitting for a stretch.  The world as I knew simply went someplace I was not.

    It's more predictable since I've had some treatment, but the bugs are not all gone, unfortunately.  Dizzy spells and falling have been creeping back into my life again.  And my brain still feels equal parts black hole as grey matter.

    Still, 'my' version of Lyme has been much less extreme than it is for many, many others.  And it's better than it was.

    Honestly, just finding out WHAT it was did wonders.  So many years of not knowing and being told I was crazy.  Perhaps I am crazy, but not about this...
