I would agree with your suggestion. I would also fire the lady who can't decide what is wrong with you when that is what she is getting paid for. I suggest you hire an attorney specializing in this and study up on the symptoms of lyme disease, chronic fatigue, depression, generalized anxiety disorder and panic attacks. The next professional you see bring in this list of symptoms broken down into catagories to make their job easier. As to your other concerns you need to get control of your life and that is the hardest part.
