The Day After

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

The day after a crappy day like yesterday, one where I’m stuck in bed with heart troubles, the day after that, I feel lighter. My heart is still bothering me. I was lying around in bed until after 2pm, but I was in less pain. My chest didn’t feel quite as tight. I could move around the apartment without getting breathless.

The day after a day like yesterday, I often find myself in a good mood. It is such a relief for the worst of it to be over for now.

It took until 2:30 pm to shower. It took until 5pm to go for a walk, after which I had to lie down for an hour. It took until almost 7pm to make dinner. But I managed to get up and sautee cabbage.

The day after a really bad day, my perspective shifts, and I’m incredibly grateful to be able to do anything.

With the Lyme getting more active and the Herxes getting worse, autumn is going to be a roller coaster.

Body

I woke up sweaty, but didn’t have a night sweat strong enough to wake me before morning. I had diarrhea upon waking and for two hours afterwards.

I was pretty tired all day. I needed to rest a lot. I was horizontal for most of the time before 2pm. I had my feet up for a large portion of the remainder of the day. My chest ached and I had heart issues. My blood pressure was low. I craved salt (and consumed it in the form of pickles).

The diarrhea and heart stuff scream, “Lyme Herx!” The rest of my symptoms seem more like the slow creep of Lyme symptoms as the infection wakes up.

I had a lot of joint aches, especially in my limbs and the part of my spine between my shoulder blades. I had a big, red, itchy heat rash centered around my sternum. I had a headache part of the day along with floaters, light sensitivity and ear pain.

This evening, I had a few things I needed to type. Now my left arm and shoulder are killing me. My neck is getting stiff. My hands and wrists hurt more than earlier today. Oh well. I can’t type so much every day.
