4th-Month IV Treatments Anniversary!
In the effort not to have my lengthy daily IV treatment protocol be the focus of my life, my husband and I returned to the beach for a week’s stay. We rented a sweet tiny cottage shore-side, to make it easy for me to get to the water’s edge, as walking is still a challenge. What a splendid and healing location that was for me. Logistically, since I was traveling, I had the expected rough days, but nothing terribly unusual. I even met a lovely nurse at my destination who was kind enough to change my Hickman IV Catheter dressing, as needed.
Turns out some of my recent challenges have come from thyroid meds, which aren’t being absorbed effectively. I have heard from other patients, that this can be a fairly common phenomenon for Lyme/Tick-Borne Illness patients and for those on some IV meds. Thyroid hormones enter practically every cell of the body, so when the thyroids meds aren’t being absorbed, every cell, in turn has to deal with the shortage. Hence my extreme overwhelming exhaustion, worsening digestion, dry skin creating bloody fingers, etc. You get the idea. So now that my thyroid meds are being increased slowly, I am feeling a bit better once again. Lovely feeling!
I’m plugging along, one foot in front of the other, and trying to stay in the present moment as much as possible to keep my focus on “living” and wellness, as opposed to focusing my attention on “being a patient”. Each and every day there are so many things for which I am grateful!
Thanks for visiting and may health and happiness be yours!
Like the 133+ million Americans facing medical adversity today, I too, am on a seemingly insurmountable journey. In the midst of overwhelming calamity, what tools can empower us to get on with the business of living and thriving?
