In The Beginning, Babesia

The harbinger of my decline, I believe was a protozoal parasite called Babesia. Most people don’t realize Lyme disease is caused by a bacteria, let alone that chronic Lyme is a whole army of infectious organisms. When I am doubled over sucking in air without relief from the feeling of needing it, when I can’t stop yawning, when my hearts jumps like a cricket in my chest, or pounds like a hammer, Babesia is at work starving my tissues and organs of air.
