If you’ve got Lyme on the brain, neuroborreliosis, you know the symptoms. Foggy head, language processing problems, brain SPECT scans that look like Lupus or Encephelitis, and mean, basically, that your brain skips like a scratched up LP.

Practically it means that while reading, you can get stuck repeating a short phrase over and over and over and over and over and…. until something knocks your needle out of the groove and you can press on. I’m never sure, because there is no way to set the timer when it starts, but I suspect I have lost as many as 10 minutes in a loop. Who knows? Sometimes I can keep moving while it happens… While it happens, it happens, it happens, it happens, it happens….
