    Hey all,

    Been a while since I posted on this board. I put a post up on the Lyme board because I recently tested positive for Lyme through and Igenex western blot. After going to a new doctor.

    Anyway, for those who haven't seen my posts on here I have a running 3 year diagnosis of CFS from a CFS specialist. It is really hard for me to wrap my head around this Lyme diagnosis since Lyme is also very "up in the air" if you will like CFS, FM.

    However, I am going to my doctor today to discuss the antibiotic he wants to use so hopefully I can get some questions in that will clear some of this up for me.

    It felt good to see the positive and bad at the same time. It felt good that maybe I can treat this and see some results, but then I get the false positive feeling or the people with EBV etc also get false positives.

    I think I just have lost the majority of my confidence in being sick for 3 years and recently turning 21 and realizing I am missing most of my youth. My frustration and anxiety is always on the rise, which takes my hope down. Anyway enough venting hah.

    I have been taking poor care of my body, and really need to turn things around if I am going to start an antibiotic regiment. Months ago I had such a strong mind set of being super healthy and maybe I would see some progress, but like many I didn't really make any drastic changes and lately have just been slacking as far as taking care of myself.

    So I wanted you guys to know about this Lyme, I see many people on here coming back with positive results but you dont see many stories of people getting better. Hopefully they are and I just can't find them.

    I want to be confident in this diagnosis and believe that it is true and the right approach, but I guess that will be a time will tell. My symptoms fit, so who knows. We will see what happens.

    I will keep you guys updated, and will also be posting on the Lyme board as this continues, and let you guys know how it goes.

    Thanks for reading my late night rant, hope everyone is doing well!

    take care.

    the appointment went pretty well today, the antibiotic he chose is Cleocin, we are starting off at 900mg a day for 3 weeks then he plans to add another. I will be posting more on the Lyme board.
