Hi this is the first I've been on in about 5 months and I feel better mentally for it! I still have most of the symptoms yet they aren't stopping me working or living! By the sound of it you are having a tough time personally and your wife's health scare can't be easy to deal with! Do you think all the worry is having an effect on you? The speech thing I have is my most worrisome symptom which is persistent but not any worse now than a year ago after my lyme ordeal !
