Oldschooler has sent very good information via PM based on personal experience and references to support groups and the available literature and research. I really had no idea that what I'm experiencing is actually fairly common amongst the group of infected individuals. More surprising is how little the subject seems to be discussed in areas like Pittsburgh where Lymes is considered rare, yet doctors are saying they are seeing a lot of cases lately.
It's going to be a long haul and my immediate goal is to be able to return to work as soon as possible. Meanwhile, some of the symptoms are abating very slowly, but at the same time, I think I may need to start focusing on some physical therapy to support recovery. Even simple activity and walking is exhausting and the lack of abdominal support leads to considerable back pain.
I really appreciate the morale support and knowlege from my friends on Epicski. If you take away anything from this conversation, please be safe in the outdoors and be aware Lymes is out there in some areas that don't come up on the map as having high risk. Having any health problem that lasts more than 3-days is something new to me, and I wouldn't wish this on anyone. Let's just say my attitude that this is something that only happens to other people, didn't work out so good for me.
Kick lymes in the balls, Tom.
