This week is not so bad. I am just taking it easy now, yet I am productive and do not have any of my lyme symptoms. And considering that it is during my period this is wonderful. Women with lyme understand this. This is usually the worst time for us.
I have been getting these additional treatments now 2-3 times a week on all of my lymp nods. They rub freezing jelly on me and use an electrical current machine on my upper chest, then upper ribs, and the back of the knees. I call it the human drano. My only complaint is that the jelly is freezing along with the room. I have to find something to complain about
I got to meet with the Dr. Korn yesterday. He was very nice and like most Dr.s he spoke over my head most of the time. I mean before lyme my ability to talk and listen were much better. Now I try not to yawn when listening to a Dr....lol But with him I wished I had taken notes. It was nice to have a Dr. who has also battled lyme and who was so very aware of all of the dirty tricks that lyme plays.
He is now changing my IV treatment. This week and all the weeks before it had only taken about
2 hours to do my whole IV treatment. Next week it is going to take 5-6 hours. So next week I will be doing the blood treatment, then the MSP, called silver, oh wait, perixode before that, and then abx. And there is something else I am leaving out.....well I will have plenty of time to remember next week. While I sit there for 6 hours...lol But the addition of actual antibiotics is the new thing for next week.
Me sitting still for 5 hours...this will be amazing in of itself...I am going to buy some books. Since it takes such a long time to read a page...lol....I will take up Italian...:>)
I have been warned that I am not going to feel so hot. And that I will herx again. Yippie. Whatever, just kill the bacteria all ready.
I screwed up, I took one week off to go home and show people that I was normal...and so technically this is my 5th week of IV treatment. But whatever. The lyme mind. Or lack of.
The new drug that they are all talking about
here attacks the spirochetts outerwall and then kills it.
I am on so many vitamins and supplements now and it is a drag. Powders and so many pills twice a day. I think that I wrote all of them out before when a women asked me. But I did not post it...sorry. I will re-do it all if someone reminds me.
The diet is so strict. And I must be honest, I am not going to give up my coffee. When I leave the clinic I smell and taste, like picked corn. sexy I know. And on my drive home I get so excited to think about
being bad and getting my coffee. Whatever....I am only going to get three days of treatment because of thanksgiving. But I am not going home and just staying here of course. I hate turkey anyways...:>)
