Anxiety running high today.  Geeeeez.  Any of you lymies struggle with getting anxiety/OCD under control?  

I know I'm not the only one in life with it.  My Doctor's assistant thinks one of the reasons I continue to deal with it is the guts.  She suggested a new kind of probiotic they found.  I don't know what the name of it is offhand.  I'll look at where I wrote it down and tell you guys.........  "Lactoprime Plus".  She thinks I won't have the negative side affects like some of the others.

Anyone use it yet?

I wonder if it's blood type specific, and if it would work better or worse than the DPN kind meant for ABs.

I still don't know what's wrong with me. It could be Lyme's; it could be something else altogether. All I know for certain is that I feel lousy.

I'll say some prayers for you Ruthie.  I'm sorry you don't feel well.  I know what it's like and I know what it's like not to know why.  Hopefully it will get figured out soon.  Until then, just know that we are with you.  And know that your input here is so nice.  You have a very level headed way of seeing things and you express them very well.  It is a blessing to others.  Me included.  Maybe that will make your suffering a little more tolerable.  I don't really know how or why, but I just wanted you to know that your words are a comfort to me.  

So I'm just trying to comfort you.  I'll just say that you'll make it through this, and it WILL get better eventually.

I've been trying to envision what's going on in my body lately. I feel like I've got all these fires going all over my body, but instead of trying to put out the fires, my body is just trying to repair the damage. It seems like only part of my immune system is on the ball. I definitely have an effective inflammation response. But the inflammation response is supposed to get the rest of the immune system in gear to come and bring the fight to the enemy. I feel like the 911 calls are pouring in, but the fire department is just sitting around playing poker and ignoring the phone. This is so frustrating! If I let the inflammation proceed, I'm miserable and in pain, but nothing more seems to come of it. If I keep the inflammation at bay with antihistamines and anti-inflammatory supplements, am I further dampening my immune response? At least the Buhner protocol seems to be eliciting some kind of response. If I increase too quickly I get herxing and too much inflammation to handle and still function well.

Yep.  That's how I get when taking too much stuff.  That's why I'm down to the minimum right now because I had had enough.  When you get low grade fevers nearly every afternoon for two to three years straight (in the warmer months), it starts to get old.  Hopefully they were doing something.  But I think fighting lyme is like running a marathon.  A LONG LONG marathon.  We need lots of patience.

I wish I'd get a fever. That would actually help my immune response.

I do when it's hot, but it's harder to tell here in the desert.

Update on the herbs: they are WORKING! The past two weeks at work have been crazy, and I've had less trouble keeping up than I did two months ago when work was dead... until yesterday, at least. Let me explain: I didn't reorder my herbs soon enough, and to make them last until the next shipment comes next Wednesday, I cut my dose way back to less than the starting dose on the protocol. That was this Wednesday. On Thursday I still felt ok, but yesterday (Friday) I was too tired to think, I was depressed, and I hurt all over. It was amazed at how different I felt by the time the herbs had gotten out of my system and the Lyme flared back up. Rather than try to cope that misery until next Wednesday, I went out and bought the herbs individually last night and this morning.

If I had any doubts before, they are gone now.

Now you'll have some back-up herbs for when you run low on your mail-order regime.

What a way to test if the herbs are working or not!

I'm glad you're feeling better now.

Spring, where have you been?


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Wow, that is really good that you have found things that are helping you feel better!!!!

I've been sweating in my armpits, and sometimes I'll wake up and know I've been sweating on my body, but I rarely sweat anywhere else in the daytime other than my armpits.  I used to be one that would sweat everywhere though, when I was doing physical work.  Which is probably partly the problem.  But I'll get hot and not sweat like I think I should be.

Does anybody have trouble with not producing enough mucus? My nose is frequently congested, but by swelling not mucus. My sinus passages usually feel too dry (even in humid NC). I wonder if this is another immune reaction that Lyme inhibits. I think I wouldn't be affected as badly by dust or mold if I had enough mucus in my nose to filter that stuff out of the air I breathe.

Aaaaah.  So where is it worse.  I would think Utah might dry your sinuses out.

It affects me worse in Utah, of course. FYI, I'm pretty sure the Lamictal I've been taking was the culprit, not the Lyme disease.

Gotcha.  Glad you figured it out.  Now if you can just get off of that stuff.  Do you take a B vitamin at all?  My Doctor has me on B complex plus and says that will help with anxiety.  And so does the Seretonin support I take.  And probably the cod liver oil.  And the UBQH (coq10).  That's all I've been taking for a good while now.  I throw in something here and there over and above that if I need it.  Like vitamin E sometimes.   But man, it's a whole lot less than I used to take.  

Have you been eating turkey at all?
