Anyway, I am now mostly symptom-free. I am on only a "maintenance dose" of doxy. I am able to go off the meds completely for extended periods of time when I have no symptoms. When symptoms do re-appear (usually after periods of major stress), they are relatively mild (small annoyances - andn othing that interferes with life!) and I go back on the meds.
I feel healthy again - I am happier than I have been in years - and I am more grateful than I have ever been for everything in my life!..."
