I can't believe it's been so long since my last post. Time has literally flown by / I've slept away a lot of it. The last round of Vermox was successful, but not as much as I would hope. I saw my naturopath earlier this week and I learned a lot about what is going on with my body. This is the first time that I have had radical changes so I am pretty excited! I have come to think of my healing process as an onion and every couple of months I get to peel back another layer to find out what's now being exposed.
The one sad point for me is Babesia is back in the picture. I thought I had conquered this stupid bug, but she's back, but only a little. I still have Lyme but my biggest culprit is Bartonella!
I see my Lyme specialist early this week to get his take on how I am progressing.
I've started to have a new symptoms. One I can barely describe. PAIN. Everywhere-most specifically my pelvis, spine, shoulders, ugh. I've known that Lyme can cause a person a lot of pain and I though I had experienced Lyme pain. I was completely wrong, the pain I've had today is excruciating. This morning I woke up in tears in with so much pain. Literally didn't even wake up first, but the pain woke me up. It is awful. I have some pain medicine, but the medicine doesn't touch it.
I am so glad I see my specialist so soon because no doctor can really help with pain issues until they see you because there are so many drug addicts and drug seekers in the world. So I'm icing my body and trying to be gentle until I can get to the appointment.
On a positive note I've started seeing a therapist to help me emotionally cope with all my body is going through. There is an emotional component and a physical component to the healing process and I am ready for the healing process to being emotionally!
I'm sure I'll have more news after my specialist appointment. I'm anxious and excited to see what he has to say.
