"Other patients are not so lucky. "Doctors can destroy patients by telling them that a true, physical disease is all in the head," she says, and suicide is one possible result. In the hyperendemic area of Bucks County, PA, Sherr says, she sees a new case of Lyme encephalitis every week and, sometimes, almost every day. "And I am a psychiatrist. These are not people who are referred to me because they have Lyme disease -they are sent because they have panic attacks, hallucinations, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression. They are in agony -not only neuropsychiatric pain, but physical pain as well. These are people who have never been hypochondriacal in their lives, but that is how they have been labeled before they come to me. They are encephalopathic, but they have been told they are not by physicians who wouldn't know a case of encephalopathy if they fell over it. They are physically sick, but they are blamed for their illness by those doctors who say things like, ‘You belong to a cult if you think you have Lyme disease,' or ‘you look okay, to me.'"    and this, right here, is why i am going to go to her.


Things they think I have:
lyme encephalitis
post-lyme disease
STARI


Unsuspected or disproved, please stay that way:
Q Fever
Tulermania (and thank God for that)
Babesiosis
Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
Tick Paralysis

Things they go back and forth on:
This one, transmitted by a dog
Lyme Disease


i will write other treatments tried later. do not have the heart to right now. but it's common for a lymie to have so much so i will try to hold faith.
