They aren't what comes to mind when you hear you're sick.  I know cpn loomed large and larger in my life until I felt confident my health was improving.  For a long while, cpn was pretty much 'everything' in my life.  (Spirochetes, not so much.)

I'm waiting for a piece from Nancy that shows the whole bunch of them banished forever.

Sarah, I was wondering but it really doesn't matter. Think of it psycholgically: c.pn. has dominated my life, probably since birth. Lyme allowed it to enter my brain.  I don't know which has made me sicker but the squiggly things are latecomers thst add compositional interest.

PPMS-misdiagnosed 2001-diagnosed 2006. Probably caught cpn in birth canal but it didn't pass BBB until my 40s. Minocycline 7 mos.- resulting bronchitis 5 months.Go to private m.d. out-of-plan. Wheldon CAP 3/2/07 Stopped 12/12; resumed 12/13

Thanks everyone.

Tom: I was searching the internet looking for good spirochete images and thinking of using pasta. In the end, some are photos and some freehand.

Now I have to depict a negative? True minimalism. Anyway, you never completely get rid of spirochetes. But if I do, I wonder if I can still tap dance. (I'll never get used to having a non-body.)

Nancy, you are getting better: I can tell by the bright colours and the way you are writing...........Sarah

Thank you Lucky.

And thanks for the vote of confidence, Sarah. But surely, I have brighter ones? I'll look and post if I find one.
