After stopping IV for a month, the pain became too difficult so we resumed 1 of the antibiotics. It has helped some, but I am still struggling with head, neck and back pain – among other miscellaneous issues.
Symptoms currently are more indicative of bartonella and babesia so those become the primary treatment focus.
John Hopkins recently did a study on using multiple IV abx to treat various tickborn diseases. It is showing some promise. So we are adding a new med to the current IV treatment and will add a third in a month or so.
Continuing the mold and lead treatments as well.
I believe I am improving. I am certain of it. But it is a long, hard road and the end is not yet in sight.
I am trying to take one day at a time and focusing on the things I am able to do, even if it is something as small as just eating a sandwich. It’s hard to stay positive but I refuse to stay down. I often remind myself, “it’s ok to have a pity party, just don’t unpack and live there.”
God is still God.
God is still good.
To Him be the glory.
