I've been doing really well. I am herxing a bit, but still getting out & about. Went to the library yesterday & cruised Walmart for about an hour. The herx hit in Walmart & I wasn't sure I could even walk to my car at the end of the lot. Got home & I was toast.
Today I went out to lunch with the hubby, then the library, then Costco. I was so done by the time the day was over. But when I feel good I want to get out of the house. I am just waiting for the sunshine to show up so I can go sit in the sunshine or take the dogs to the park. I don't function well in the cold. I spend about 90% of my time alone, so I am trying to make the most out of it. Trying to make an effort to get out and meet people & promote my Thirty-One business.
If you look through the history of this blog, I have posted telling you that "I am doing SO well, I am feeling SO great, I am getting better"! And then BAM!
I am so sick and that sickness lasts for weeks or months. I have had HUGE improvements since I started my Rocephin break about a month or so ago & since having surgery. Now 2 weeks back into it the IV treatment. It takes it's toll, but not as bad as before. I do like being off of it though.
My lyme cycle should be hitting any day now & I almost fear what is to come. I am getting better. I know I am because I am cycling about every 8 weeks now instead of the usual 4 weeks. That's how I was this time last year & then had that great summer (2 1/2 months in Summer 2010) before the horrid September relapse.
Last cycle, I SUFFERED. It was horrid. I will use my morphine if I have to this time!! I just won't be able to take my LDN because it blocks opiate receptors.
So there, I'm going to jinx myself by letting you know that I am doing really well. I have even committed myself to go to a book study group. It is for 4 weeks in April, once a week. It's at 7pm and I usually feel better at night, so that is an advantage for me. It's also not too far from home. The book is called The Four Agreements.
I remember seeing Ellen Degeneres back in 2001 on Oprah saying this book changed her life. Then Ellen interviewed the author for O Magazine. I already have the book. I bought it for my husband a few years ago. I just need to have the 1st "Agreement" read by the first class day. No biggie, it's a short book. I just have a TON of books to read right now. I'm making reading & studying my full time job. I will be going to the library every day if my body will allow me to. We have a beautiful library.
