From this study (1 year ago):
Felt terrible all my life. High pain threshold due to not knowing how it feels not to be in any pain. Lacked motivation & felt confusion as long as I can remember. My mother has lyme disease. I have aspergers & RA & Lyme disease. Have to figure out ways to treat myself & make it through life bc drs won't help me due to fear of losing lisences even tho they know I have Lyme & need antibiotic therapy. Got reinfected by tick in 2009. Became unable to live normal life at all.
