Hi everyone & thanks for the support! I needed to hear those encouraging words. I truly don't know what I'd do without you.
You are angels on earth.
You know, things never seem so bad the next day. LOL. Human nature is a fickle beast.
A few things I've been thinking about
>> I see my LLMD in 10 days. I lowered my Doxy dose to 400mg per day and I am ingesting the cleanest most organic foods I can find to lighten the load on my body. She'll test my blood again and we'll see how bad it looks.
>> I love the idea about trying Dr. J's protocol. Currently, I'm in an antibiotic state of mind (sounds like that Billy Joel song) but I will definitely be ready to order his products should abx turn out to be too harmful for me. Ordering the pale spike what-cha-ma-call-it is on my list of things to do. I haven't felt well enough lately to even pay bills or do my taxes.
>> I am currently attacking the Lyme in 3 ways:
1: Tindamax pulse to kill cysts
2: Doxycycline to kill bacteria using one method (bacteriocidal I think)
c: Amoxycillin to kill bacteria using another method (bacteriostatic I think)
I loved this treatment protocol because I felt I had all my bases covered and for the first time in over a year I felt like getting off the sofa and taking a shower. If it needs to be tweaked or change - oh well. I'll be OK.
I only take Bicillin IM 1.2 million units per injection which correlates to 600mg per day. I wonder if thats enough? I think I should increase it. I read that Mrs Ekim is on 3000 mg per day. Bicillin (Amoxycillin) does not affect the liver.
If I can tolerate a lower dose of Doxy, so be it, and I'll be grateful. Perhaps if I increase the Bicillin, it will counteract it.
Thank God I can come here and talk to you guys. My LLMD listens but I only see her once or twice a month for ten minutes and heaven knows my kids don't want to hear it!
FYI: These shots are torture. The needles are about 2 inches long!! I'm Ok with doing it but it takes me quite a long time to get up the nerve to actually stab it in there. Kind of like the "Why would anyone jump out of a perfectly good airplane?" philosophy.
I use my upper thighs for injections and I alternate left and right legs. The medicine is really thick white gooey stuff and it takes a long time to push the plunger down and get it all in there. The spot where I inject is swollen, kinda hard and hurts like heck for about 2 days. Thats normal though. How funny what "normal" has become to me now. LOL!
Thanks again everyone. Peace and health to you my friends.
