The Active Debate

I always hear different things- my doctor tells me to go out and be ‘active’ to get some exercise, and go out and do things.

But I honestly don’t want to do ANYTHING when I feel this awful and am in so much pain. And when I do listen to well meaning people who want me to get out and be mobile, I end up paying for it for days on end. All I want to do is stay in bed and sleep. Bottom line my question is even if getting exercise makes me feel worse in the short run is it possible its better in the long run?

What do you think is better with Lyme? Getting active, or staying in bed?
