I was supposed to go out to Malibu today to see my doc & update him on how the pusling is going. Well, I woke up (not easily), infused, ate breakfast, got out of bed, and my stomach was so upset & didn't know what was going to happen, so I called & cancelled. It was difficult to wake up, I was still dreaming when the hubs came in to wake me up (my benedryl probably hadn't worn off completely yet). Then I popped a valium & went back to bed only managed about another hour of sleep because my chihuahua wanted to go play with the crow (aka eat his food). I am mad at myself now because it was supposed to be 80 degrees at the beach. I LOVE the ocean, just couldn't get going. Grrrrr. I'm mad at myself. My stomach is better, don't know what was going on. I know I have been eating like crap, my diet is now worse than it was before I got sick! I used to be much healthier. So no more dessert. That's a good start. I finished off the brownies last night so there wouldn't be any left today ;-)
The pulsing is going well. Last week I started my 2nd pulse. I felt like crap again on the 3rd day, so I assume I was herxing again. YAY. I didn't feel nearly as bad as the first week. That was a kick ass herx! No seizures or anything, but some good pain, weakness, HEADACHE FROM HELL, stomach ache, etc.
Today is the start of my 3rd pulse. I think pulsing is a great idea. I am feeling better in general. Not great, but better. I need to get out & walk every day now that I am feeling better. Should probably jump on my mini-tramp too, but I never know if I feel good enough to do it. My muscle weakness is gone again. I'm not sure if it's 100% gone, but the profound part is gone. I'm still fatigued though because I lay around. When my fatigue is gone, I am up, out & wanting to do things (usually at night). THANK GOD & THE UNIVERSE!
I want to see this chiropractor turned, I don't know, naturopath-type-doctor. She is in Yorba Linda, but she is $275 for the initial consultation. GRRRRRR... money would be nice right about now. If insurance cuts off my rocephin, I'm screwed. Totally SCREWED. I want to see her because with lyme, you need natural aspects, natural treatments & detoxifiers, etc. She also does ART (muscle testing) to see which drugs would benefit you the best in treating your lyme.
Wish this real estate market would pick up........ wish I could get a job........... wish disability didn't deny me TWICE!
