If we had the ability to change one singular event in our life today, what would that be, and why?

I was leading an active life, working 50+ hrs a week and started getting really fatigued, gaining wgt, kept going like a steamroller for over a year. Than bam...this past summer the sx couldnt be ignored...started having problems with my joints, muscles....had every test, misdiagnosed several times, until I was finally dx with lyme. I thought o.k this is it... Epidemic in dutchess county. I am back to work now but cut down on the hrs....impatient to get back to me again...temporarily sidetracked but I will get back!! too much in life I want to experience..:)). I would not have experienced this had I had the choice.

Wow, Very sorry to hear you were stricken with such a health ailment. It is very unfortunate that is was not diagnosed in the early stages. And to be cured with antibiotics, especially if treatment was begun early in the course of illness.

However, a small percentage of patients with Lyme disease have symptoms that last months to years after treatment with antibiotics. These symptoms can include muscle and joint pains, arthritis, cognitive defects, sleep disturbance, or fatigue. Something I am sure you live with. The cause of these symptoms is not known. There is some evidence that they result from an autoimmune response, in which a person?s immune system continues to respond even after the infection has been cleared.

Did you exhibit the first sign of infection? Usually a circular rash called erythema migrans or EM. This rash occurs in approximately 70-80% of infected persons and begins at the site of a tick bite after a delay of 3-30 days. A distinctive feature of the rash is that it gradually expands over a period of several days.

My hats go's of to you to remain strong and determined to regain your inner strength.

thanks wee,
Just ran across your response.

No I never had the rash, but had a tick in the back of my head a few yrs before I fell and went boom last July. I'm kinda like a steam roller just kept going until BAMMO!! I don't know many people here in Dutchess County who havent had themselves or a member of their family infected with lymes! The perils of outdoor life around here. but the trick is to get RX ASAP. Yup had all those symptoms...cognitive problems were a real treat...on the bright side I could have hidden my own easter eggs ...lol. I thought I was dying for real...Feeling so much better now...and just started back at the gym yesterday!! "when the boy gets that look in his eye...I'm gonna be ready this time. Ready, ready, ready to run. All I'm ready to do is have some fun...what's all this talk about loooooooove, I'm ready to runnnn...ROLMAO!!"I have spunk like you...but I'm Irish...!!

I am so pleasently pleased you are feeling better.

Cheers to good friends and good times! how brilliant would it be to eat drink and be Irish at Flynn's pub...lol

I send a Irish blessing to you

May the sun always shine on your windowpane. May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain. May the hand of a friend always be near you. May God fill your heart with gladness and cheer you.

Cheers

So this happened years down the road from the actual tick? Can they test for this? That is scary as hell. Between hiking and paintball, I probably pull a couple off every year... Does this run in bloodlines? Should I be afraid as I have both Scottish and Irish in me? :o) Perhaps the English and the German will even it out some!

Thought-provoking question, Leggz.

I wouldn't change a thing. Every choice made defines who I am today. And I'm okay, life is good. Not that mistakes haven't been made, but they too shape who we are today.

For this question to have more depth, we might add a qualifier: 1) Based the information or situation at THAT time, would you have made a different choice? or 2) If you know now what you didn't know then, would you have made a different choice?

Since most of us never know the outcome of any one decision, how can we say that one event would have made us and our life better than it is today?
