   Posted 4/21/2018 9:04 AM (GMT -6) 60 of treatment. Yesterday I was feeling almost manic and today to be blunt, I hate myself. Lots of self loathing going on. I had a show last night and I always always pay for exertion the next day like a hangover but I feel emotionally hungover also. sad I have Bartonella and have had a ton of neurological and psychiatric problems from my disease. Little buggers are surely in my brain. *** do I do. What if antthing will help ? Especially when its hard to do anything (like eating. Leaving house...blah blah) fml. This is becoming too much. Oh. I switched to doxy about 3 weeks ago and plaquenil.still on rifampin. Came off biaxin. I take tons of supplements. When will it end? sad

I'm sorry you're feeling so bad. sad My bet would be on a herx. I'm having an anxiety herx today myself. Are you detoxing? I haven't been taking my epsom salt baths as often as I need to. I'm going right into the bath when I get home today.

In the meantime, I took burbur/pinella and I'm using lavender essential oil (I diffuse or pour a few drops on a cloth to keep around me). I also tried an L-theanine supplement that helped.

Hope you feel better soon!

Sounds like you are herxing...what are you doing to detox?

I find the epsom salt baths provide me the most relief when I'm herxing. Also light exercise if you're able. I think getting the blood flowing helps.

I have bought the Jernigan's Neuro-Antitox II - CNS/PNS but it doesn't seem to be helping.

Maybe i need to take it all day long.
