With Lyme Disease you end up feeling so sick and weak and dizzy that sometimes you can not perform the daily tasks you need to. Showering becomes overwhelming, getting dressed, brushing your teeth, standing for any length of time becomes hard with the dizziness and pain we experience. Cooking dinner or cleaning house almost impossible. We stop being able to do these things not only for our family but for ourselves. We don't want to ask for help. This leads to feeling like a burden. Not being able to attend events. Having to constantly cancel with friends or family members puts a strain on all relationships including making you feel like a burden to your own family. Not being able to be a mom or dad and play with your kids is especially hard. The ones you were taking care of now need to stop everyting to take care of you. The guilt it relentless.
