I had 2 good days in a row. Went to move some stuff to our new house, pick up a dining set in Old Town Temecula that I bought off of Craigslist. I sold my 8 person dining set for a 4 person sold it for $150, bought the new one for $150. Perfect trade off. I could have gotten more for my set, I realized after I had about 15 responses within the first few minutes. Someone was at my house with a truck within 30 minutes. My husband told me to put it up for $100, I never listen to him & I always sell things for more. I should have researched Craigslist for what I was selling. I could have gotten at least $250 for it. Anyway, then we went to grab a quick dinner & meant to stop by Home Depot for some paint color samples for the new pad. But we forgot before we got on the road to the mall. I used a gift card I got for Christmas at H & M and shopped with hubs & the 14 year old. They were very helpful men! I got a few cute things. Makes me happy. Can't wait to wear them.
So I wore myself out at the mall & then we went to La Jolla the next day to have lunch and walk around. It was COLD, so cold that it was miserable. But I brought extra clothes so I was ok. But hubby didn't bring a sweatshirt. OF COURSE!!
So I wore myself out & actually took a nap for about 30-40 minutes on the drive home. If you know me, a nap is RARE. I have probably taken 3 in the entire 17 months I have been sick. Sleeping does not come easy for me. I wish it did. Before lyme, I napped all the time. I had to. Maybe I've had it longer than I thought. I had so many unexplainable things going on in my body with no explanation.
My doc ordered an Eco Cardiogram. I am hesitant to go get it because since it's the new year, comes the deductible, & the 30% out of pocket (until I meet $2500 out of pocket). There is a place in Ontario that does them for free. They are a school. Not sure if that is the kind of place to be getting a check on your heart. I may consider it though considering the financial situation.
I ordered the Lyme Defense Tea from MistyMeadows.org. They are an herbal store in Connecticut (I believe). I only ordered about 15 days worth, but I doubt I'll be able to drink the 32 oz right away anyway. I want to start slowly. It's based on the Buhner Protocol that uses antimicrobials instead of antibiotics. Natural stuff. I've been on antibiotics for 15 months. INSANE! As I sit here typing, I am infusing my medication through my PiCC line. Such a pain in the butt. Happy to have 3 days off a week. I get to bed earlier & don't feel so stressed. Hubby & I are trying to work me into a schedule. Benedryl at 9:30, take out IV bag to warm up a bit, 10:00, start IV (takes about 40 minutes if all goes well). Then I am super tired and can get to bed before midnight or 2 am for that matter. No more laptop in bed either. I hate just laying there. Let's my mind wander & my thoughts run through my head too much.
I've been slacking on my sauna. I am seriously mad at myself for it. Need to get back on it. It is easier when I am feeling better because after I am done I need to hop into the tub right away & it's a long process. And I often don't have the energy. Had a hard time walking up the stairs today. However, hubby did take me & the 3 dogs for a walk around the block. Not too cold.
I hope everyone is getting better. This cold has been another set back. Crazy thing though, I am actually showing symptoms of a cold. Sneezing & drippy, stuffy nose. I find that a good thing. Also, my mom is coming to visit me tomorrow. YAY! She is bringing me a tea ball so I can make my Lyme Defense Tea. YAY!
