Does anyone know how agonizing it is to wait for the results of a test? I kept my word and didn’t chicken out-I had the Lyme test yesterday…And because I’ve just finished a pretty lengthy course of antibiotics that have actually made the symptoms I usually feel much better-it can also cause an inaccurate test result-meaning more than likely, the antibiotics have wreaked havoc upon the Lyme antibodies to the point that they may not even show up on the test…Either way, the doctor seems to think that the fact that my usual MS-ish symptoms grew worse and then improved by at least 30% while taking the anitibiotics (sometimes referred to as a “healing crisis”) means that we are most likely fighting Lyme-regardless of the test results-so he gave me another two weeks of Cefdinir and mentioned the scary term “Lyme disease specialist”-I suppose all depending on the results, which I haven’t received yet. The idea of my blood sitting far away from me and my body somewhere in a lab, is one of those things that really gets to me…Humans fuck up far too often, and that makes me nervous-very, very nervous.
I’ll keep U updated and perhaps fill U in on the latest round of “mood stabilizing” candy I’ve been prescribed-this one includes an extra sweet one-with the risk of a “Fatal Rash”! Joy!
And yes, I’ll put the promised (Did I actually promise U?) photos up as well.
