Hi Everyone!

I have missed being on here and talking to you all so much, I hope you are doing well, let me know how you are!

I'm so sorry I haven't been on or posted in so long, I've had alot of problems with health, was unconcious for 3 days because of the parasite in me and have had a few seizures things have gotten a bit better now still feeling awful but some of the symptoms have improved and i'm just exhausted. Its weird, I can tell when the parasite in me is doing damage, I feel sick and start vomiting and go white and sometimes faint, the doctors have seen me when this is happening and said it is the parasite attacking the major points that show symptoms and its not unheard of but uncommon and just means its spread alot and doing more damage than most would do, I'm starting treatment in 2 days again. Hopefully it will work!! Im scared but also excited at the same time, fingers crossed it works :) I'll keep you all updated and i hope to hear from all of you sometime, I would love lots of emails!! Keep me busy during treatment.

Miss you all!! Can't wait to get posting again when i'm up to it

Love you all!

I started treatment 2 days ago, had bad side affects and was so weak yesterday i couldn't even hold my phone! but i guess that means something is happening and hopefully killing the parasite!!
