Health Update Thursday(1/19)

I know many of you are quite curious as to my health status at this point in time-I can't say I'm completely better then I was about a month ago when I took my blogging leave, but I can't say I'm worse either.

The truth is I AM better and I'm continuing to get better, but it's slow. Very, very slow, frustrating, and confusing to say the least.

I'm still trying to put together what happened back in November and December in a post because it was a very long and extremely painful process for me including ER visits, hospitals stays, a minor surgery and a lot of scary, which involved one of my ovaries.

As of right now though, like I said, things are getting better thanks in large part to my medical intuitive whom we fell back upon during the past few months when things got rough and whom has definitely made the most sense in all of this.

I've been taking the herbs, vitamins, and supplements that she recommends religiously and, like everything else in this crazy disease, I have my good days and I have my bad. The thing I've learned quite quickly: It can change in a matter of minutes, so enjoy the good while it lasts and work through the bad to have more good.

Because of everything going on, I see many different symptoms on a daily basis-One day it'll be feet so sore that I have to wear slippers to even walk on them and the next it will be a horrible migraine right out of the blue. Yesterday, I woke up with chest pain that continued throughout the whole day, which I haven't had in a while.

Of course, that doesn't include the normal, everyday joint, muscle and nerve pain, overall body stiffness, trouble walking, brain fog, etc.

We've figured out a lot of my issues comes down to detox. My M.I. calls it 'wasting' where I will eat something, take my supplements, exercise, etc to kill off all the toxins that are circulating around in my body, however my body can't naturally detox on its own, so once I start killing, there's no where for the toxicity to go.

So, I'm sure it goes without saying that blogging for me is going to be a little touch and go due to everything going on with my health and how sporadic life is-Just know that I'm around and I'm taking advantages of those good days when they're there and working through those bad to get to more good :)

Thank you all for sticking with me and for all your love, support, kindness, thoughts and prayers. Aside from all the supplements, doctors and treatments, that is what helps heal me, too.

Until next time!

My poor baby girl. How I wish we lived closer together. If I remember correctly you said you have Lyme Disease. I had know idea that Lyme disease was so unpredictable as to when how long & start all over again. You are always in my prayers you know that & if there's anything else I can do let me know.

I hope you start feeling better on a permanent basis really soon. And that the good days are much more frequent than the bad.
