What is Lyme Coiling Season?

Several people have asked me about the seasonal nature of Lyme Disease. Mostly, I read about it in various books before I finally experienced it in 2011. From the perspective of a person with Lyme Disease, the symptoms tend to get worse in February, and stay worse until sometime in the beginning of the summer (say late June or sometime in July).  Then the symptoms get less intense for a […]

Take it lying down

I crashed today. Fortunately, the only person I had planned on seeing caught a cold and cancelled. I spent the morning taking it slowly, coming up with things to do lying down (like coiling, reading). I got up for a few minutes to make a list of things I wanted to do in the afternoon, only to find myself yearning to be horizontal and watching a movie. I heard that […]

Second Lyme Coiling Season Begins

As the aches in my joints started increasing today, I knew it was time to start coiling for Lyme again. The plan is the same as I did for my first Lyme coiling season this fall: 5 days a week, weekends off, full-body head-to-toe, 3 minutes in each location. (Here is the full protocol.)

As I mentioned in my last post, I had a two week planned break from coiling (Jan 13-25). I did my best guess of when to take a break based on a few factors: I was expecting to be done coiling for Babesia by the beginning of January. The Lyme coiling season is usually August to December, and for my first coiling season it might go to the beginning of […]

Bone Density Rx

I went to see a rheumatologist this afternoon about my recent diagnosis of osteoporosis. I was pretty nervous, ready to do battle about whether I have Lyme Disease, given my previous experiences with rheumatologists. I looked up lots of information about premenopausal osteoporosis, so I could keep the conversation focused on the current problem and also because I like to learn enough in advance to understand what a doctor is […]

Now that I’m more mobile, as in I can walk a reasonable distance and still participate in the activity at the other end, I’m thinking about public transportation. Mostly, if I couldn’t walk somewhere during the past almost 5 years, my mother drove me. Lately, I’ve been able to drive myself around. But parking in NYC is no picnic. Back when I first got sick (but tried to convince myself […]
