I started taking abx (doxycycline) on friday. I know its not enough thanks to the caring ppl here who take the time and energy to post up tons of valuable info. I still spent yesterday afternoon on the couch with a fever. But last night...i spent TWO HOURS on the deck just talking with dh and enjoying the stars and breeze. I havent done that in over two years!!! Im feeling pretty darned good right now after an afternoon nap tho im not up to dancing any jigs. Placebo effect? I doubt it. Nothing else got me out on the deck like that. No amt of pain meds did it. That was huge! I dont have my test results back yet but dont hold out any hope on them. Im shocked to read that dr's can lose their licenses for rxing meds! I actually hope that im one of the "lucky" ones that test positive. It would explain so much.
