Hi! I am here! I didn't get on here yesterday, but you are also on my mind even when I am not sitting here at the computer!
I did have the interview and feel it went well, but she said that she had to give two other interviews, and would let me know. I was a Home Health Aide for about two years, about 15 years ago, and have been with the nursing home for about 23 years now. I am currently a Restorative Aide, and enjoy that and the concept of it, but feel called to go into Hospice Care. So if it is meant to be, it will happen. I'm trying not to be nervous about it.
I am still on the new round of doxy, and this time I'm on benadryl or begin to break out in hives. I am really ready to be off of meds, and get my gut back into normalcy so I can get back onto a more healthy eating pattern and begin the herbal formula. But I know I am wrong to complain about that when there is RD and so many others who are having such a hard time getting treated at all, and you having such a hard time with your treatment. I have been really blessed, and still continuing to learn patience!
I've been drinking a lot of strong fresh ginger tea, to which I add the Yogi Peach Detox, and that seems to be helping my knees. I just now kicked them both and no creaking! My neck sounds less crunchy too, I think. In May, I had run low and then out of the fresh ginger and wasn't using it or enough of it with my tea for a while. Now, besides plain water, and one cup of the green/black/mate blend, that is all I drink. I had forgotten or didn't notice that it is also meant to be added to the detox bath so I will be needing even more from now on.
I don't remember the reason, but the tick was not tested. When I go to the Dr. on Monday, I will ask.
I saw that you took your first amoxicillin. How are you doing?
Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers, even when you are still suffering so much! I keep praying for your healing and everyone on here, for diagnosis and treatment to work.
