I'm thinking of taking a different route.
I'm herbal gal by nature/ way of life prelyme.
I did Amex for year and half while nursing. Not sure what that did but...
I've got everything I need to fire up coinfection treatment... but I'm at this strange stuck place where I don't add in what I should. Hout sida etc. Try abart.
My day is consumed with my kids and I don't take my regular old Lyme supps more than once a day. Twice if lucky.
Plan was to self treat with herbs but have backup apt with LLMD for four to six months out as that was when they were going to be available.
Well now looks like he may be avail sooner so considering abandoning the self treat with herbs plan and just make apt.
This is hard as I was wanting to conquer with herbs. I just didn't give it a good shot ... and now my cognitive dysfunction - brain fog and anxiety depression have kicked in bad this last two weeks. Culminating in a bad crying episode that my kids had to witness. I don't want that for them. And I am with my kids 24/7.
Things change daily. A couple weeks ago I played soccor and gardened. Now my backs out and I'm a mess.
Most often the changes are just in symptoms. Bad anx depression for year and half - then started up on adaptagens and Seemed to be getting a bit better- hadn't cried upon waking for three wks ( then I stopped those adaptagens( I was sure Gaia holy basil gel caps were giving me bad morning heartburn) ...Meanwhile brainfog brain fog Took front and center as well as back neck issues brain fog comes and goes ....
I was going to try MR but last thing I red on his site is... make sure not mold. And on here it seems mold is a big player I have ochratoxin A at 15. The swollen neck node pointed to Bart so I was thinking not mold ... if I'm going to spend the money on LLMD id like to know it's mold or not.
What if mold is my problem and I mess myself up more with hard core ABX. And don't get better.
The latest LLMD I'm considering SP doesn't talk much about
mold in his vids / website. But there are some good reviews for him online . I mean can you really get back on track with life after 15 years of this getting deeper. Llmd should be able to help right. I wish there was a sure thing.
It is a major deduction and I'm confused about
the mold and also herbs vs. ABX.
Then there's the herx. I'm with my kids all day every day. How can I expect to be on a full ABX protocol . If my anx/ dep is any worse they will forever be scarred.
Really when I get too many bad days in a row and am not treating self then that's where I will go to sp. i know mr does both so I'm playing with that idea but sp is much more local. Maybe I'll schedule a few months out and give it a go. I just need to have a baseline where I'm not such a mess for a week. Will see how I am tommarow.
Do you herx less( lower and slower with herbs? Or can ABX be herx free? Sp pulses.
And to confuse me more. Some of the herbs are potentially helpful with covid. And starting ABX may reek havoc on my immune and he would want me to stop herbs to monitor meds.. I should look at his protocol again. This all stinks.
Going to chiropractor tommarow. Back on adaptagens. And getting closer to treating hope.
This is just a rant mainly and helps to organize thoughts. Sorry to take up anyone's time reading this ... no need to reply unless something pops out for you.
