I too have Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and other co-infections. I met a girl a few years ago who was in her mid 30's. She had been sick her ENTIRE LIFE. Her parents thought it was all in her head.
I encouraged her to get tested and she said, "I was never bitten by a tick". Of course she tested positive for all the infections I mentioned above (she was lucky because the tests have a very high rate of false negatives). She fought the diagnosis for a while (denial phase) and then decided to try IV Rocephin. 1 year later she is working full time and traveling all over the world.
One must keep an open mind and do the research. Don't delay!
