    In my experience yes. I've withdrawn from so many friends and family members, because they continue to say how well I look, so don't understand why I feel so ill. However, I do have days more recently, where I'm looking gaunt, but that is because I am on 600-1200mg of antibiotics a day

    Yes, absolutely. I'm sick of being told 'You look well though', when I feel like sh*t. The reason I may look well is because I've cut out all sugar, wheat and dairy from the diet, but the Lyme symptoms (pain around the eyes, head and left side of body/heart) continue, and the search for relief continues. Very much relate to Richard's comments above.

    Definitely. Lyme affects everyone differently. For me it causes a lot of mental fatigue (forgetfulness, brain fog, etc) but you would never know anything was happening from the outside.
