Take good care of yourself and get well soon Xy!

Lyme disease it not funny - it's good if it's diagnosed early and treated well with anti-biotics.
Also - take an annual test for 5 years to make sure it really left your system.
A school friend's father had it undiagnosed and died from the long term cerebral complications in his 60ies.

I caught it 20 years ago - most likely walking my brother's dog in the woods. Luckily I found a good doctor over it, was treated with hammer anti-biotics and have been fine ever since.

It does have one longer term effect though: 2 years ago I wanted to be listed as stem cell donor for a friend's co-patient, first tests looked like a good match. But having had lyme disease is an absolute exclusion criterion for Eurotransplant - was pretty bummed about that. Don't know how the regulations are in Canada & the US.
