Thanks for all the great responses. It is so weird because although we have never met-- it helps to know you are all out there. I am feeling a little better today mentally. Just trying to take it one day at a time. Yes, I am working with a good LLMD. I see Dr. H (the one who writes the books).
ChickNorris--- what infections do you have? I have a lot, as well. I must have been bit by more than one tick for sure hiking last summer in California. All this happened in August. Its crazy that I am coming up on my year anniversary. So depressing. And the truth is that I knew NOTHING about
ticks before all this. Now I feel like I am a LLMD without the MD to my name.
Dr. H said I can not go on antibiotics for a lloonngggg time after I get better from the C diff. The crazy thing is that I was on Alinia the past few months which is supposed to treat C diff. And I wound up getting it anyways. I was seeing a different LLMD before Horowitz and that doctor did not reiterate the importance of probiotics enough. Thus, I was on massive antibiotics and not nearly enough probiotics. And not I am a crap mess (no pun intended)
For me, my main issue at this moment (besides C diff) is also Babesia. Its a tough one to get rid of. And Ive been on high dose Mepron, Azithromycin, Malarone, and Alinia. My best combo was Bactrim, Alinia, Mepron, Azithromycin. But those days are gone for me.
Anyways, thanks again for everyone's support.
