I’m in REMISSION!
Let me apologize first for not updating this sooner. Oops! I’m sorry 🙂
But I have good news! I’m in remission! I left the clinic (Sierra Integrative Medical Center in Reno, NV) in May 2014. It took a few months for me to recover but I am feeling myself again – my healthy self! I stayed somewhat up to date on Facebook, so I’ll just copy/paste my statuses here in order…
Sorry I’ve been MIA lately. Just been super busy. I plan to post an update on my blog in the near future though. smile emoticon
Finally started my home care today- here’s my daily schedule- I need more hours in each day. Nurse Joey has to give me my shots cuz I’m a wuss.#lymedisease
I’m finally feeling the effects of my homecare regimen. Yay for more energy! Still have some brain fog/concentration issues but that is most likely from my actual brain, not bacteria. While in Reno I found out I have a genetic issue with part of my brain. Need to find out more info on that though, but there is therapy to help that. I’m also seeing a chiropractor for 4 pinched nerves in my neck and back, one of which can cause eye issues and concentration problems. But overall I’m doing good! Still have a ways to go in recovery but I am feeling so much better than before treatment! And I’m happy to report – NO lyme symptoms! Woot Woot! Can’t wait til I’m 100% and I can start being active! I have really missed the gym and lifting weights! Lyme – 0, Kristen – 1
I know I’ve been kind of MIA lately, but I’ve been living life! Feeling better and better as more time goes on. I’ve learned that “recovery” is a real thing. haha! I guess I was thinking I would get home from Reno and be 100%. But nope… it’s taking time for my body to heal after the internal war that’s been going on for the last 3 years. And I will admit, I could have been better with my home care plan. It’s just so tough to fit everything in. On another note, Dr Fong recently tested my adrenal/cortisol and my levels were low so he is sending me two supplements to take for that. So that should give me that extra energy that I’ve been missing! I even had a virus about a week ago that did me in, but surprisingly I bounced back! #ihateyoulyme#killedit#healing
Yep – still been MIA, I know. But it’s because I’m SYMPTOM FREE! Working like crazy, and actually feeling normal! Yes, it’s possible!!!
Wow I can’t believe it’s been 8 months since I last posted. Yikes! I’m sorry everyone! Here’s a quick update: I’m still in remission! And still symptom free! However, I have been super stressed with heavy workloads and such lately, and that is starting to take a toll. I have a few of my glyoxal shots left over from Sierra Integrative that I just mailed off the other day to get “recharged”. So when those come back I’ll have nurse Joey give me them for a good immune booster! I also am planning a trip down to Tampa sometime in the near future for a dark field. I want to see what my blood is looking like nowadays. All in all – still reporting good results!
Hey everyone! I just wanted to give another update. I am still symptom free! I definitely fell off the Lyme diet wagon, but slowly working my way back into healthy eating. Gluten and sugar free are very important for so many reasons, even if you don’t have Lyme. BUT if you do, just remember that sugar feeds the bacteria, and gluten causes inflammation which Lyme bacteria LOVE! And if you’re like me and always wanting to drop a few pounds, it helps for that too. Also gives you more energy and forces you to eat more raw foods – like fruits, veggies, meats (unless your veggie/vegan), etc.
As for at home treatments, I haven’t been doing anything unsure emoticon On occasion I will take Argentyn 23 if I feel a cold or sinus crud coming on, but overall I feel as though my immune system is doing great! I am still having low thyroid and hormone issues, but dealing with those and working on getting my energy back!
Ok, well that’s all for today. I hope whoever is reading this is having a great day! If you’re battling Lyme, please stay strong! I know it’s easy to get down in the dumps, and become depressed and feel as though you have no way out, but there is hope! There are treatments out there that work – I’m living proof! But don’t ignore your symptoms. Your body will always tell you what’s up! 🙂
I’m here to chat if you need advice for treatment (SIMC is the bomb.com) or if you need a shoulder to cry on. STAY STRONG FELLOW LYMIES! Kill ’em!!! xoxo
Still in remission!! Take that Lyme!!!
