    June 2002 found small tick on back. I had came home from work and went to cemetry, then walked around outside my home one time. Somewhere in that short timespan I had picked up a tick.

    Life will never be the same!! To say it mildly, it is hell. My doctor found it on the first visit - 3 days after bite. I had the perfect bulls eye on back.

    Now 6 years later -
    1. I have an aweful time concretrating. Talking , spelling, paying bills, and decisions put me at the point of tears.
    2. Lost at least half my hearing.
    3. Depression is always a dark cloud near me
    4. Gained 40 lbs

    Can anybody understand me? Is this feeling of failure normal. I was a math whiz, now I can't even make change.
    I need to have someone to talk to that has Lyme.

    There is a lyme board here, if you click on 'messageboards' up above, you can click on it... there are quite a few with Lyme or suspected lyme.

    also have you looked at ilads.org? There is a lot of information there too plus links.

    all the best,
    Victoria
