THROUGH CHALLENGE and Lyme Disease

A BUT KICKING UPDATE

     A but kicking update is something I have not written about. Or at least while I have been getting my but kicked. The past few days I have felt fatigued but found the strength to keep moving. Today after a fine visit with my son in-law and a short rest. I found myself getting very tired , my hands were heavy, legs are weak and I am not that hungry. I know what is going on and I must listen and relax and take it. I am sure this is what some of my fellow lymee advocates call the herx. I have not had the pleasure of experiencing this very low energy feeling like this in the six years I have been treating for lyme and it's co-infections. From what I can muster out of reading about the herx. That is short for Herxhiemer reaction. It is a negative/positive reaction to the treatment and it happens to many. And some don't experience this. I am not depressed and I have been accused of being depressed when I have had similar reactions. But being a depression and anxiety veteran during my search for diagnosis over the years. I am very familiar with depression and this is not it. I believe it has to do with all the meds I am taking to combat these co-infections that I have been diagnosed with. The body needs time to shut down and catch up. This is one of the reasons that it is very important to take Billions + probiotics while taking antibiotics. I feel with the supplements that I take and listening to my body. I will get through this. Excuse me for writing about this at the time I am feeling sluggish. But it is more accurate this way. Somehow it made me feel better. Perhaps taking my mind off the herx and applying myself to this article. The important thing is I have had some very good lymee friends following me and as we share our experiences, we endure. My lyme friends, I solute you.
