A day off, a nice little break, a vacation, sure. Day in, day out is getting a little old. I use to be a highly functioning Lyme patient. Remember my post about being the energizer bunny? I used to be able to push myself to the point of collapse, and now I wake up already collapsed.
This appears to be life while treating Babesiosis.
I’m thirsty. I can hardly keep my head up. In fact, I can hardly keep awake. I go through hours of chills, followed by serious, drenching sweats. My skin looks dehydrated. My heart is racing faster than ever. And I can’t do anything productive. I’m sobbing in short burst. I can barely make it to the bathroom. But at least with NO energy, I can’t rush into emotional explosions. *Bright Side*
Such is the nature of Babesia. My friend had Babesia as her primary illness. I have always seen mine as Bartonella, until I treated it really hard. Now, it appears that Babesia has the upper hand. My friend says, “You don’t have good “days” with babs, you have good “hours,” and that is no exaggeration.
I miss the good days. I think I had one last week, after stopping all babesia treatment for more than a week. But yesterday, I started a new product called, A-Babs. A lot of the natrapathic doctors and medical doctors are using it. You typically start with a drop of two. My doctor suggested even 1/3 of a drop could be devastating for me. But I did the 1/3 a drop. And it was terrible.
I’m having hours that are better, but so far nothing good. I’m not going to do another drop for a few days. Yes, I might just be the most sensitive person on the planet. Or at least ONE of the most sensitive. If there is a reaction to be had to a product or a treatment, I will likely be the one.
So, I need to look at it this way, at least it makes this $89 bottle last forever, right?
I’ll keep you posted.
