Well, I’ve been gone for awhile. My apologies.
I hope you have all had a good holidays, actually, on that note:
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I’ve been really sick the past few months, and had to switch around my meds to try and combat all the horrible new and increasing symptoms I’ve been facing. So over the holidays, Christmas day to be exact I felt like absolute death. I was a living zombie. Rawr.
I was vomiting non-stop. Into the night and the early morning I could not keep ANYTHING down. I had a fever, insane weakness and heaviness, my face was jaundiced, my head felt like it was exploding and I almost passed out. Anyways, I pieced things together and I realized that my LIVER has been the problem. The jaundice, vomiting up bile, not being able to tolerate my meds at all -eugh. (Apparently this is very common though for us lyme patients on long term abx!)
So because of this, I’ve been off all of my meds. It’s only been a week, but I certainly don’t feel like I’m dying anymore. PHEW. You all can put your guns away, because I no longer want yall to blow my head off. (That’s how bad the pain was!)
And then prior to that, maybe a week earlier, I had stroke like symptoms where I was unable to speak and only make sounds, was suddenly weak, had a horrible headache and even bladder issues (that was new! 😦 *sigh*)
But right now, I’m alive. My head is burning and my TMJ area aches on my jaw, I feel dizzy and I have a huge headache. I’m not on my meds. So I don’t know if I’m beginning to relapse or if I have been feeling ill because of detoxing? (And having a toxin overload in my blood?)
But possible yucky detox side effects aside, I’m starting off the new year, 2014 with liver friendly foods and vitamins.
I’m going to be trying to eat tons of green smoothies. I just made one with kale, spinach, bananas and kefir! It was baaangin! Just sayin’.
I am also taking milk thistle, alpha lipoic acid, magnesium, B vitamins, and multivitamins to aid in helping my liver get it’s mojo back.
I may have to eventually do “IV” antibiotics because that way it bypasses the liver and gut and goes directly into the bloodstream. It would be more expensive (*gag*) but I’ll have to do it, if that’s what I need to do.
So I may be doing some more fundraising in the near future to cover the picc lines, meds, supplements etc.
Anyways though, no matter what you’re going through remember that God IS with you.
Love you all,
