“6 more months”
My last Lyme Physician consult was great and Oleh-Alex was able to join in this important visit. We have decided to keep me on IV treatment for another 6 months. The trial round of oral meds were not as effective as we had hoped, but the IV is slowly and steadily moving me in the right direction. In the short-run it might have been nice to have the Central Line removed, but of course, I am in it for the long haul and will do what I need to do to attain my goals.
My symptoms list is indeed very encouraging as I am no longer experiencing serious confusion. When I am fatigued, then the brain fog rolls in like the early morning weather pattern on the California coast. As time ticks away, I hope to make a bigger and bigger dent in the list of symptoms. Currently my short-term goal is to start eating solid foods, as I have been on a mostly liquid diet for 6 weeks - juices, medicinal powders, pureed blender food. I am experimenting with a few supplements with the hopes of calming down the bugs in my digestive system, so I am ready for the May 10th start of the intense Babesia treatments. (Babesia is a malaria-like red blood cell parasite and my treatments for this condition are more lengthy and complicated due to my lack of spleen, from my teenage cancer).
I am focusing on a healthy balance between work & play and am so very grateful for the flexible schedule at my work which accommodates my Lyme fatigue and other symptoms. As part of my own wellness, I am continuing travels across this great land to further my Yoga Teacher Training studies and I am fortunate to be able to share the healing benefits of yoga and meditation in classes in our community.
We are all a deep well of strength and happiness - we need just tap into that cascade of positivity.
Wishing you a splendid journey filled with bliss!
