One of the things I haven’t talked about here is depersonalization and derealization. I’ve touched on it a bit in the past, by mentioning I don’t recognize myself, but left it at that. This is yet another common symptom with Lyme and coinfections. While many … Continue readingHello to My Fragmented Self
I’m a little more than a year into treatment (I don’t count the almost two months of intravenous antibiotics since they did nothing but make my life an actual horror show- this was before I got my LLMD). As of about 8 weeks ago, I … Continue readingPlease pass the salt(s) and turn down that music.
I had NPR on briefly the other day and there was a segment on about trust (the brain science of it). They were taking callers on their issues/experiences with trust between … whatever it may be. Trust, or more appropriately, the lack of it, has … Continue readingBut most of all, we want to heal.
