Diagnosis: Lyme's Disease

Yep. I've got it. I've been suffering from headaches, eye strain, and general "funk" since my ER visit. I went to the Dr. on Tuesday because I was just tired of feeling awful. I typically NEVER get sick. I rarely get colds. So, to have headaches all the time and not feeling good is way out of the norm for me.

Dr.'s first question? Always the same. "Could you be pregnant?" My answer? Always the same "I better not be!" I have two great boys, that's all I can handle! My husband got a vasectomy when Mason was 3 weeks old. Done and done! I really really don't want to end up on "I didn't know I was pregnant". I would like my reality show career to start a very different way.

Blood work came back positive for Lyme's. I started antibiotics yesterday and feel slightly better. I feel a little tired, some headache and that's about it. I don't like feeling tired. It's terrible. Also, it's 104 degrees today!

The GOOD (very Pollyanna of me):
- this happened during the summer when I'm not really working
- I do not have a race until September 11th
- my body probably could use some down time to recover from life

So, taking it easy. Relaxing. Trying not to go crazy. Any good books I should pick up?
