It has been 7 weeks since I developed a small bullseye rash on my inner thigh. I have been taking Doxycycline, 100mg twice a day, for six weeks now. I feel every day is an improvement from the previous. My strength has elevated, my joints have loosened, the nausea is near becoming extinct, and all the pains associated with Lyme are further and further apart. It’s a very joyous feeling and one I am very thankful for, but I couldn’t have had this success on my own.
I have a family of support that cares for me beyond words or imagination. There love, understanding, and acceptance has helped my recovery and created a bond that will remain always. I can’t thank them enough. On days when my strength was frail, my appetite had vanished, and my mood was dismal they would pick me up, entice me with sweet treats, and lighten my load with a friendships laughter. My gratitude is beyond measure. So to my support, whos arms held me when I could not stand, I thank you.
