Pregnancy has thrown me off my journal - and my Lyme disease

Jul 26, 2010 - 0 comments

Well, here I am, 16 weeks preggers.  I have had only slight hints of my Lyme disease during this pregnancy!  Well, I should say, other than my nasty insomnia.  When I found out I was pregnant, I quit all my meds cold turkey.  Wow, I slept 2 hrs, 1.5 and 2.5 on benadryl.  I was an anxious, sick, tired mess!  I called my psyc and begged for mercy.  He gave me doxepin, 100mg.  OB said it was safe.  I hope so.  I have to take it or the consequences are worse than taking a med.  It does give me restless leg, but I feel fairly ok.  

This has caused me to somewhat ignore my Lyme, b/c everything can be blamed on pregnancy and my neuropathy is slight to non-existent.  I have mild to moderate anxiety and insomnia, but that can be blamed partly on pregnancy too.  More later:)
