> Scott sorry to interupt your conversation but I just had to google your Doctor Is it the Robert C. Bransfield, MD? He is all over google for working the lymes disease. I had no idea this was your doctor. You are seeing the best by what I read Phillipa

Prior to my seeing Dr. Bransfield, I couldn't get off the couch or read more than 2 consecutive sentences. I had to learn by skimming. I like that he thinks outside the box. I feel substantially better for taking prazosin at high dosages. Only a handful of doctors would have thought to try this on me. He is becoming less available to see as a private patient because he spends so much time on speaking tours about the neuropsychiatric effects of Lyme Disease and other tick borne infections. Right now, he speaks about the occurrences of suicidal and homicidal ideations in Lyme Disease. The first thing he did with me given my history was to screen me for Lyme Disease and give me doxycycline to see if it would provoke a Herxheimer reaction. I am fortunate to have Dr. Bransfield as a resource. We talk about mental illness and psychopharmacology from a number of perspectives. His approach towards mental illness is eclectic. Another area of interest of his is ADHD. He is still passionate about medicine and really loves learning. It is scary how good his memory is. I don't know. All I can say at this point is that he doesn't go out of his way to diagnose 90% of his patents with Lyme Disease.

I'll try to keep an open mind. If I get well by using a triple-antibiotic treatment regime, I'll be the first to extol the the brilliance of Bleauberry in his crusade. In the meantime, I have a plan that involves trialing 3 antidepressants. Oh, I just remembered. I was placed on a huge amount of various antibiotics combined administered as a continuous IV drip over the course of 20 days when I was hosptitalized with sepsis. It worked for the sepsis. No change in depression. I guess that makes me 1 in 10?
