End of Week 7 and today begins my 8th week of Tick-Borne Illness Treatments. I do not yet feel a large improvement in many overall symptoms, but there is now an reversal in my ALS*-like symptoms and now I have some good days (in late December 2010 I had lost some use of the right side of my body and had difficulty swallowing and breathing and there was a suspicion I might have ALS). The days I feel physically stronger keep me motivated to work through this quite challenging phase of the treatments.
My husband and I just returned from a short trip to Southern California for some R&R near the beach. I have gotten the hang of traveling through airports and on airplanes with all my IV supplies, refrigerated liquid IV medications, etc. We feel it is vital for my healing, to have “a life” outside of my condition and the treatments. Although I am not yet strong enough to be very physically active or stand on my legs for long periods of time, we have planned a few short trips in which we can rest, watch beautiful scenery, and enjoy each other’s company and life in general.
Thanks for visiting and may health and happiness be yours!
