Starting Treatment Today

I’m finally feeling well enough to start taking my antibiotics today. Well, almost well enough. I woke with a nasty migraine at 5 AM. Meds got rid of most of it, so I decided not to abandon my plan to start treatment today.

I spent a couple of hours last night trying to wrap my head around what meds I need to take when. This with food, this without. No dairy, but yes Acidophilus. Half an hour before or after a meal, but two hours before or after antibiotics. It feels like hard math and makes my brain hurt, but I finally got a checklist I may be able to follow.

Without the list, I would be completely lost today.

I took my first dose a half hour ago. I’m very fatigued, and already feeling the familiar “ten-ton weight on my shoulders” sensation that I get with heavy meds. I’m gonna have to lie down. I’ll keep you posted.

  1. Hi Elizabeth,
    I’m proud of you for starting treatment today ~and it sounds like you are already listening to your body so that is good! Keep posted on your progress and hang in there!

  2. Hi Elizabeth

    congratulations on getting a firm diagnosis and I’ll be thinking of you while you plunge into treatment.

    I’m still very ill. My (almost routine) springtime remission is showing no sign of budding yet. Probably about another month or so. In the meantime I can only get out of bed and online infrequently – but I’ll check your blog each time I manage to stay vertical. 🙂

    Smiles and blessings.
