Okay, I just did it. I faced the moment I'd been hoping for and dreading all at the same time....I am taking my (hopefully) last round of Vermox (the amazing medication that gobbles up the body of the parasites living inside of my body leaving only protein for my body to absorb or excrete). This moment has been something I've looked forward to for so long because it COULD mean I don't have any more parasites. Yesterday was the full moon, which if you've been reading my posts, you know the full moon has a huge impact on my body because the parasites regenerate on the full moon cycle....last night would be their huge orgy party and tonight I believe I have the maximum number of parasites remaining in my body.
So I took the dreaded medicine just now at 11:50pm on Sunday, September 30th. The regiment is to take the pill twice each day for thee days in a row. It's a chewable pill so it goes into my system pretty quickly and I usually have stomach cramping within 20 minutes after taking it. It the past, I've been knocked on my butt during these three days....so I guess I wait and see.
Honestly, I have an upset stomach, but I had one before taking the pill so it's hard to differentiate the pains in my gut. I'm hoping this round will be rather uneventful (meaning the medicine had nothing to destroy so it just passes through my system like anything else), but I guess we will have to wait and see.
At the beginning of my Lyme battle I had the Lyme bacteria, babesia, bartonella, and worms/other parasites of various sizes. I have experienced three species that I could visibly detect - no microscope needed.
If I do have a positive last round then I can celebrate because I will have conquered my parasites! I have already rid my body of babesia so the only buggers left are Lyme and bartonella. I don't want to put up streamers yet, but I would like to point out we may be close to halftime in this fight and I am really excited because a lot of it will be downhill coasting! I also have no idea if my body in healing time is actually at halftime or if healing time isn't measured by months and years....kinda like dog years does time pass much more quickly the second half?
There are little glimpses of the old me coming out. My family notices them mostly, and it is super cool cause I don't recognize those little wins very often. Sometimes, I am scared to admit when I feel glimpses of the real me because I'm scared to jinx it. Western medicine complemented by Eastern medicine has led me to this point! It's working :)
I am hoping for three days of smooth sailing! Please keep me in your prayers! Oh, and if you run into me in the next few days (just in case there's any parasites still in there) make sure to yell at my parasites and tell them they are not wanted....seems to work better when others say it! lol!
