Ever had an incomplete card game play in your head non-stop for 3 days?

  • During my bout with non-stop card playing, I was not keeping thoughts very straight and organized, so I started turning over my projects to a cohort who had his own stuff going on, but that's what we do, fill in for each other.

    Today, I am starting to feel confident to move on but BOY did I have a lot of emails to catch up on, appointments to rearrange, double-checking to see if I had done other things, etc., etc.

    And what did it? We don't really know. I had little extra nasal congestion, no sore throat, no headaches, just huge over-all body aches. sharp joint pains and chills that made me look possessed. Or maybe I was?

    Could have had a touch of pneumonia, but slight enough it was not positive, so what?

    We got skin biopsy of blood sample of a bite that had been with me for several weeks. Maybe?

    If I ever know, I will pass it a long.

  • BUT, the silver lining on all of this might be the finding of a new General Practitioner. I am not big on throwing money into doctors offices but if this person lives up to Aubrey's opinion, it will be money well spent.

    So, there is an upbeat ending to what sounded pretty dismal.

    Sorry folks. Sometimes I just have to get it out. :-)

  • An update for those who were kind enough to check on me. After an initial relapse yesterday morning after about two hours of being up, the rest of the day seemed to level out.

    No more card games, but I have noticed my typing is much worse than normal. (which was not good before). Luckily I can recognize that I typed wrong 'cause the spell checker does not do it all.

    This morning also seems to be starting off well, so maybe I am over the hump.I would estimate this at about day 12. There is rarely a convenient time to be sick.

    But, with that said, unless I come back with a reverse report, consider me recovered. (almost)

    Thanks for your calls and notes.

  • Be sure to ask for a Lymes disease test. A family member suffers from Lymes, sounds like what she went through. It is hard to detect as it mimics many other ills.

    I'm stunned that caregivers don't ck more often, as here in Wisconsin it is found in the whole state! Simply carried by that nasty little deer tick.

    Good luck, you were a pretty sick cookie.
