Hey Rodney, I missed your little green dot so I will say a belated hello to you.
I've going up and down physically, mentally, and emotionally. Bad pain like I've never experienced and during my first Herx on the Levaquin my balance went out the window and I walk funny and I even fell off a pair of flip-flops. Lots of crying -- BUT -- I also can drive fast with the window down and the radio blasting. I can make a grocery list and remember to bring it to the store with me!
I am able to work overtime. I saved enough money to buy a used hot tub and I am so loving it! Sitting in the warm water with the jets on low, beautiful starry sky above me. Just contentment.
However, I still battle social isolation and depression; still waiting for these 90 Lyme pounds to start dropping off; still waiting until I can dance again or walk on the beach without falling over. I fell twice in Target last week.
My current protocol is Biaxin twice a day, Levaquin once a day and I.V. Rocephin once a day. The Levaquin is kicking some Bartonella butt!
Ticker, best of luck with your next step in treatment. I was on tindazole for awhile and it did nothing for me. That was when my infection was in full force so there not have been any cysts yet. When do you see your doctor next? Are there antibiotics that you have not tried yet? Or maybe you can revisit an antibiotic and see if has any impact now?
Rodney, how ya' doing? A few times I began to reply to a few of your posts but it upset me so bad that I would be sobbing as I was typing so I just quit. I guess that's good, to let my emotions and sadness come out but I'm getting sick of it. I hear a song that I used to dance to and I cry. I see the beach traffic and I cry. Anyway ... your posts hit me like lightening; almost as if you know what I'm going through.
Peace and health to you both,
