#Lyme Disease Infections and Intense Die-Off

Hello to All,

I’m sorry for the long absence. I’m at the tail end of the worst die-off/detox reaction I’ve ever had. I was struggling so much that I decided to try a new doctor in January. He put me on an anti-fungal, a biofilm dissolving enzyme, and did neural therapy (injections) into my abdomen, neck, and swollen lymph nodes.

Since that time, I’ve suffered from daily migraines, pronounced dizziness, increased insomnia, and eye pain. I’ve been unable to walk, drive, or even take a bus. I can’t view a computer screen for more than a minute without getting eye pain and a migraine. Every time I ingest solid food I get a headache.

I feel cut off from the world around me. All I can do is to sit or lie in a darkened room and maybe read an easy book or magazine. The vulvodynia pain also returned, so I can’t even have sex without pain. Almost everything right now causes me pain.

Pain.
Pain.
Pain.

This is the most disabled I’ve ever been. I’ve been unable to moderate comments or read or return emails during this time. I will return to these as soon as I can.

On a positive note, I’m so thankful for my parents, my friends, and my spouse who spent time with me, talked with me on the phone, drove me to appointments, and kept me from falling into total despair. Knowing that I’m loved makes it possible to endure this miserable disease.
