Beth, I will try the gradual ramp up on the Ceftin and see if I can get to tolerating it. I don't know the ad but it sounds like a funny one
I don't know much about
diet other than that I am avoiding sugar, gluten, dairy and caffeine and I am taking a probiotic.
Thanks for your support Mike. Really good to know that I'm not alone in lashing out. I so don't want to be that person but sometimes the disease and all my fears take over. It sounds like your wife is really lovely too. It is definitely impossible to explain to somebody who hasn't experienced it what it feels like to be this sick nor what it can do to your mind. I so want to be that funny, attractive, loving partner I used to be. Instead, I've put on about
50 lbs, my hair which used to be long and blond is now broken off and matted from lying in bed all day. Pure, shallow, vanity I know, and what should be the least of my worries long after my physical health - but it all adds to the stress.
I am going to look for another LLMD. If anybody knows a good LLMD in the San Francisco/Bay Area please could you let me know? I think you have to email me personally - we are not allowed to mention actual names on the forum. I am going to a medical group in Santa Rosa but I don't care for my Dr much and she confessed that she had no clue how to fill in the disability forms which is adding another layer of stress since our savings are just getting eaten up.
Thanks again and I agree. Let's ALL get better.
How does it go? Feee Yooo Naa
