Can you get Lyme repeatedly, or does the antibiotic not knock it out completely?

Doctors - pfff! My PA is better than a doctor. She listens!

Oh, no, I've been treated several times, but grudgingly each time I've
been told they didn't believe I had Lyme - the fact that I improved with
doxycycline was just a placebo effect.  No one has ever proposed

I've been blaming my seeming inability to accomplish much in the garden
this season on the strange weather - generally cool and gloomy though

Well, now I have another excuse.  I have been diagnosed with Lyme
Disease.  The remarkable thing about this is that I have struggled with
for about 20 years, and usually have been unable to get a doctor to admit
that I had it, even when it was indicated by the blood tests. They didn't
offer any other diagnosis - just said they didn't believe I had Lyme.  In
words they thought I was malingering.  I went in this time with another
complaint, and the doctor declared that I had full-blown Lyme.  OK, maybe
this time they will finally do something about it.  It's a relief to have
it finally
acknowledged that it is not just all in my head.
Maybe I will still get the garden together before the end of summer.
