I'm glad your doctors have at long last aknowledged what you have known was wrong with your body. My grandfather was certain he had a particular disease & worried about it most of his adult life. When it was finally diagnosed, he was able to stop worrying. In his case, the symptoms were not severe so he just ignored them the rest of his life & died of someting totally unrelated at age 95. Do they think gardening is too strenuous? Or do they want you to stay indoors all the time? Stick to your guns on this. You've been right while they ignored your concern. Would you consider writing an article about this long course of Lyme Disease? Just your experience. I think health care providers start to categorize and stop listening to people. This is the sort of thing I read first in my nursing magazines. Then I read the technical info. Helps me remember to listen.

I've been treated with doxycycline several times, and that was the
prescription this time.  It usually helps for a time, but since the
doctors don't usually think I have it anyway, I haven't been able
to keep up the treatment.  Maybe this time I'll be able to lick it,
but apparently after a long time your body begins to treat it like
an autoimmune disease.  We'll just see what happens.  At least
it is encouragring to have it recognized.
Two doctors now have recommended that I give up gardening.
I've responded that that's not an option - gardening is what I do.

Wow that's discouraging - but at least now they will treat you. Will all
the symptoms go away after so long?
