I love writing these blog posts. I love writing in general. I have a list of over a dozen topics to write about for the blog that I wish I could do all at once.
Alas, some days, I’m tired. Today I had something personal to write that used up most of my energy for the computer. That, and some stressful situations to deal with.
Amazingly, I haven’t melted into a puddle. I can tell I’ve gotten a lot stronger over the past two months. I’ve been able to do more, think more, write more. I’m not the way I was when I was healthy, but I’m starting to imagine that I might reach that point again.
Still, on a day like today, I’m tired.
Tonight is a co-infection treatment night. I’m steadily chipping away at Bartonella and Babesia until they’re gone. Since my Lyme Herx isn’t quite finished, I’m not increasing the coiling time for either co-infection just yet.
- Bartonella, abdomen, 4 minutes 15 seconds
- Babesia, chest, 1 minute
- Candida, abdomen, 10 minutes
The kombucha saga continues. I haven’t started brewing yet. I need to because the only place in my neighborhood that sells it is constantly running out. No kombucha today.
Last night, given how much pain I was in (right side of my back), I couldn’t lie on my back to fall asleep. So I skipped out on the BioMat and slept in my bed.
- homeopathic support
- juiced greens
- skin brushing
- BioMat/infrared heat (1 hour setting 2)
Last night I had a major night sweat. I sometimes wonder why my body occasionally skips a day, only to have it again, worse, the next night. Lyme Herxes are strange phenomena.
This morning I was pretty achy all over. My back muscles hurt a lot, as did my spine, and the bones in my lower back.
The right side of my body has been hurting all day. My arm and the side of my head (top, temple, scalp, face, ear, jaw, eye) are the parts that pull my attention the most. My hips and knees on both sides have been intermittently stiff then okay then stiff again.
I had a lot of floaters in my vision all day. Anytime there was more than a minimal amount of light, I watched them drift across my field of vision.
I took a non-napping, lying-down rest this afternoon. My mind was too unsettled to sleep and my body was too fatigued to be upright. I had a big headache at the time.
Tonight, I look forward to rest and sleep.
