Good morning everyone. Today might be a better day...I hope. If I was herxing I think it is going away. I wasn't sick to my stomach upon rising this morning and my mental fog seems to be lifting. The only thing that seems to be lingering is facial twitching..especially my bottom lip. I can deal with that though. Thank goodness the heart palps went away. I don't know how many times I have to experience them to realize I am not going to die when it happens.
I was proud of myself this past week. I didn't go into anxiety meltdown like I usually do. It helps alot to be able to come here. It's been a year this week since I admitted myself to psych hosp for my anxiety and depression over this. That was a day after my old doctor told me nothing was wrong with me and he couldn't help me. Jerk.
Thanks again to my lyme family for helping me through this.
Glad to hear you are doing better. We are all in the same boat. I have only had Lyme since early December (I think) but didn't get diagnosed until May. After 6 weeks on antibiotics I am beginning to have some decent days - this past weekend was good. However, I went off oral Doxy (400-600 mgs) Firday and am now on IV Rocephin - for 3 days. Today my excruciating neck pain has returned = UGHHHH. When I have it I feel like I can't turn my head and it affects my throat too. Sometimes it seems like one step forward and two steps back!!
My best to you and I will say a prayer for your recovery. SROCC20655
So glad you are feeling better. Herxes can be scary, the more so because you have no way of knowing how long they're going to go on for. Heart palpitations can be especially alarming, that and chest pain. Take good care and stay well.
Thankyou everyone for your kind thoughts. Today did turn out to be better. It was very hot here...98 and humid. We don't ever have weather this warm. I took it easy most of the day and stay inside with the air on. I was able to swim with the kids for awhile too. I didn't feel too tired but I still took a short nap this afternoon. My hubby made a nice dinner and did all the clean up. It was a good day.
I mentioned in an earlier post that there is a convent behind my house. Everytime I am not feeling well the sisters either call or show up at my house. They called tonight and asked if they could come for a visit tommorow. Now I have strong faith but it still gives me the chills everytime they do this. They always tell me they pray for me everyday but something about them always knowing when I am not feeling well is amazing to me. I am really looking forward to thier visit. I think 3 sisters are coming and 3 young women who are deciding if this is thier calling. I will include all of my lyme friends in our prayers tommorow.
Thank you again for support. I hope everyone wakes up feeling healthy tommorow.
Your experience with the sisters can only bring brighter days. Thank you for including us in your prayers and tell the nuns that they are awesome for somehow knowing just when you are in need - nuns rock! A few of my childhood role models were nuns. I never felt a calling - but Thank God they did.
I'll include everyone here in my prayers tonight also.
