I completely understand, harsh antibiotics for long periods of time I have found to do real damage.
I got lymes for the first time in the mid 1980 early stages of recognition of lymes disease so several misconceptions such as if you have had it once you can't get it again, don't see the rash( mine was covered by a birthmark)or pill side effects can magnify symptoms it is being used to treat, safe to use on under age 12 patients etc. caused a lot more harm than nessicary
I have heard chemotherapy kills systemic lymes virus, but have not verified that claim with my medical teams yet.
It took a long time but I beat lymes disease only to find out I'm braca 2 estrogen positive stage 3 breast cancer at age 41. Genetic testing is showing a 10 to 20 year acceleration in diagnosis of women in my family so there are many other factors to consider before we determine what role lymes disease diagnosis had in that.
Best information is independently verified from more than one credible source, but that is still only a guideline because people are human and make mistakes.
I don't blame the medical community as a whole for not having correct information, I blame them for denying information to avoid liability over their hypocratic oath!
Best of luck to you all and I will let any new information I find guide your own research on the subject, it's pretty controversial still
