Sorry for the rant I'm about to do!! I am just feeling so tired of trying to detox and not feeling better, trying to eat well and not feeling better...I know it's wrong but I get so jealous of others that can just live there lives and feel good!! I so badly want my life back and I'm so scared that this is my life nowsad. Sorry I just needed to share since I know a lot of you can sadly relate!

I can totally relate...especially lately. Just prior to the J clinic appt...I was having some pretty good days and even my not-good days I often had some hours that were good.

But the past few weeks...I'm not experiencing that anymore.

I'm blaming the Gabapentin.... and hoping things get better again.

Hang in's a long haul of ups and're just going through a run of 'downs' right now..
It will get better....

I've been feeling worse lately and having pity parties for myself! rolleyes I called my husband and vented the other day because my mom wanted to do a 13 mile, multi-day hike with packs eyes and when I told her that I'd love to do that someday but that my body couldn't handle it right now she told me we could make it work. No, no we can't. Not with me. People, other than my husband, only see my good days and seem to forget that I'm sick. cry It's very frustrating.

Right now as I've been feeling worse my house is a disaster, my spirits are low, and the ~only~ thing I have been able to keep up with is my kids' schooling, and that's because when I first got sick we decided that THAT is the number one priority and that if I could do only one thing in a day to focus on that. (And when I was first sick we fell behind even on that.)

I'm a lot better now than I was at first... but I still get SO frustrated and sad sometimes... I just want to be better!!! And I also am scared that this is it now. sad Until the past couple of weeks, when I upped my parasite cleanse, I'd been ~feeling~ pretty good but I still couldn't DO much. sad I just wear out so quickly. sad I want to be able to LIVE again! Hopefully someday...

Yes, I can relate to the house being a total disaster and low spirits! It's great that you are doing better though! I wish i could say the same! I thought things were better awhile ago but now it's just like it was in the beginning...if I could just get rid of my horrible daily headaches and spine pain I think I might be slightly more positive! Yes, hopefully someday...that's all we can do is hope!

Been there. Totally feel your pain. My first year was the hardest. I was so depressed. Today I'm actually dealing with the harsh cruel reality of still not being able to do basic things like mail a frickin' letter. I have to ask my husband to do it and I asked him for a receipt and he treated me like I was being OCD. I just wanna know it got sent. Ugh. Mailing a letter! Just keep on going, don't stop. Don't let these hiccups deter you. They will come, so be ready for them. I'm gonna lay down. This whole letter thing got me really upset.
