in the most pitiful pathetic tone; insinuating how do I even make it through the day. (Something I am sure far too many readers are aware of) This has long ago leveled off to minimal levels with the MS, but has now resumed with a vengeance with the Lyme. I’m not entirely certain why. I still have the same neurological problems; and, for once, I am getting better. Somehow getting a new diagnoses must mandate an new pity phase. Of course there are two things making this pity phase worse because no one ever knows my full story. At some point the seizures will come up; which will of course mandate a new pity phase. And then they will learn that I use the term Lyme as a loose term for the set of infections I have (Bartonella, Babesia, Lyme/Borrelia); which once again starts the pity all over again. I think I will be long cured before I am treated normally again. Why would anyone this someone would want to be spoken to this way?
