What's Lyme disease like?

I get this question from a lot of people. In part because the symptoms are so varied from person to person, depending on length of illness, treatment, etc.

I think the easiest way to explain what having chronic Lyme is like is this: It's unpleasantly like being drunk.

What's so unpleasant about being drunk?

Ask a glass of water.

(Bonus points to readers who get the reference in the above post.)
