The past two weeks have been a little different. I’ve been alternately doing more and falling flat on my face. Tonight, all I aim to do is fill in my lab notebook of coiling, treatments, and symptoms. It might be a little light on the latter two topics because I don’t write them down on paper on the the days that I don’t blog.

A few things I can’t place dates on: One was Lyme smelling urine. It came and went. I think the Herxes are building up a little and my body is cleaning them out in its own schedule. The second is that I tried increasing to two packets of 5LAC for a few days. After a few days, the tinea on my right arm started itching and my urine was cloudy. So I went back down to one packet yesterday (when I considered the connection). Maybe the acne will also go down… Third thing is night sweats. I had them intermittently. Not too intense, but enough to wake me up  damp. I also can’t remember which nights I slept well (there were several) and which nights had poor sleep (there were several of those, too).

The coiling schedule has been off some of the days. If I do anything, I end up not being home to coil at the times I need to to let it cool off to get in all the sessions in a day. I’m still working out getting a second coil.

I had some energy in the first half of the day. Then I overdid it with too much activity, seeing two friends in two boroughs in one day. I came home at 7pm and was done for. I was almost too tired to eat! Then I was in bed very soon unable to do a single thing in my apartment.

Although I was a bit tired, I decided to spend the day out of my apartment. I visited two friends in two parts of Manhattan. Again, I got home and was unable to function for the rest of the day. But days like this one are important for healing my spirit.

After all that running around, all I could handle was a walk around the neighborhood with my mother. I rested for part of the day. I had dinner with my parents. It was peaceful in my place because I could barely move.

Monday (Nov 14)

Coiling

Body

Yoga was a stretch for me. I had to stop part way through the class because my hips started go give out and I couldn’t put my weight on them. The rest of the day I was a bit achy, a bit more than when I woke up. I chalk it up to increased blood flow waking up all the sore spots.

Then I went to the gynecologist to get the results of all my tests. The only interesting, and very bad, news is that I have osteoporosis in my lumbar spine. My acupuncturist somehow knew this and had been badgering me to get tested. Lo and behold, she was correct. I have my work cut out for me to fully recover from all these years of chronic Lyme disease…

I did a bunch of driving and went to the beach. It was so nice at Smith Point. Windy and cool and cloudy and grey. I didn’t stick my feet in the water this time, but it was nice to be out there. Dinner had something I was allergic to in it and I ended up with a headache and toothache that night and for the next two days. By night time, I was overtired but exhilarated with a lovely day.

Wednesday (Nov 16)

Coiling

Still achy, especially my hips and lower back. I couldn’t drive because my legs were bothering me so much. Not too much of an appetite. It was a strangely grey day in NYC with changing temperatures and humidity levels. I think it affected me.

I was having heart troubles. Pain in my chest and a pounding heartbeat. My blood pressure felt like it was off. I was also exhausted because I couldn’t sleep the night before. It was a day in the house, doing light housework because I was restless and resting on the biomat because I was exhausted.

Body

I still had a mild case of heart symptoms. Other than that, all the aches and pains were in my various joints and bones. I had a headache again. A night sweat that night. The pain was increasing as the day progressed. It made it hard to concentrate on anything else.

A friend drove me upstate for an overnight with a group of friends. The trip wasn’t exactly what my body needed, but it was nice to be in a more natural environment than NYC.
