Just me infected, although hubby was in 2014, but he got the right treatment because I insisted.
Hubby refuses to live as if I'm contagious, so I'm always watching for signs of reinfection. Continue to watch over my now adult children (32 & 30 yrs old) as they were born when I was undiagnosed.
Healed the first time around quickly and well (herbs only due to being an abx failure), had too much stress & drama, adrenals crashed (1 step above Addison's) and took my thyroid on the ride as well, then got reinfected while I was 'down'.
Back in treatment now, treating very, very slowly due to the stress that having these infections, treating them and herxing all put on my adrenals.
BUT!!! I'm making progress! Just this last week, I started herxing after doing some gardening (and sweating my rear off!) and have seen improvements in my symptoms now (YAY!!).
Using herbs only again this time, same ones too as they worked really well for me last time, but only treating adrenals, thyroid and Bartonella at this time.
