The tired problem

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

I’m so tired. Again it seems like a day passed without being able to do nearly as much as I’d like. I mean, I didn’t even manage to watch a movie.

I could be at the part of the Lyme Herx when I’m tired. That makes sense. Yesterday was the headache. The day before was insomnia.

Still, my experience thus far (since March or so) makes me always question whether I need to increase the Babesia treatments when I get tired. In the past, increasing the coiling sessions, either in frequency of sessions or in time per session, has consistently reduced the fatigue noticeably within a day or two.

I’ve been doing a reduced coiling program for everything but Lyme because I’m getting more Lyme symptoms and I’d rather focus on tackling the Lyme and dealing with the Herxes. I’m trying to get bold enough to coil once a week before autumn. But that means my summer will be shot. I may have no choice.

Which brings me back to Babesia. I was coiling my ilium, my knees and elbows, and my shoulder blades for a while, in addition to 10 minutes over a high blood flow location (heart/lungs or liver). Then I reduced it to knees/elbows and heart/lungs. Then I reduced it to heart/lungs. Now I’m thinking I need to add back in the missing parts, particularly my ilium. So I guess I add that back in tonight and see what happens in the morning.

Coiling

  • Bartonella, chest, 2 minutes; abdomen, 5 minutes
  • Babesia, chest, 10 minutes; ilium, 1 minute each side; knees/elbows, 1 minute
  • Candida, chest, 2 minutes; abdomen, 10 minutes

Detox

Distraught at the waste produced by juicing, my mother is now experimenting with rejuicing. She took the pulp from the juicer and put it through the juicer again. And again. Between the two rejuicing cycles, she got about 25% more juice. The juice is darker, with a higher concentration of chlorophyl. When she mixed it in with the first round juice, the concoction is more bitter. I still like it. I’m hoping it helps me even more than the juice I’ve been having thus far.

  • homeopathic support
  • kombucha
  • juiced greens (3 cups worth)
  • cabbage (big bowl, sauteed)
  • skin brushing
  • nap
  • rest
  • short walk in the sunshine

Body

Night sweat last night. Then after I changed clothes and sleep-upon towel, I was still hot. The room wasn’t hot, but I was.

Morning, I woke up and my hands didn’t work for about a half hour. They hurt tremendously. I was too tired to get out of bed for longer than a trip to the bathroom. The funny thing is that when I did get up, I wanted to do as much as possible before I crashed again. Mostly that meant scrubbing the pressure cooker that my mom’s friend gave me from her basement. After straightening out the kitchen, I was toast.

I spent a chunk of the day lying down, a bit of it on the phone, a bit of it with a friend. I pulled myself together to go for a short walk, but when I got back I needed a nap (more than an hour’s worth of sleep). I felt like I was overheating again as I rested.

I pulled myself together to sautee cabbage. Then I realized I hadn’t even touched my computer today. So here I am.

The rash on my chest still itches, a low level most of the time. But when I start getting hot, it gets much worse. I try so hard not to scratch it. But I feel like I’ll go crazy if I can’t scratch it.

My headache from last night diminished to a tolerable level and has been moving around my head most of the day. I’m achy, mostly my hands and knees and spine and shoulders. I have some sharp pain in my lower back, climbing down into my legs.

My bowels are a little on the loose side. I’ve got extra gas (continued from yesterday) and my lower abdomen is hard and swollen.

I’m ready to head back to bed.
