Back

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, mostly because I had a terrible summer of mostly feeling bad. Same with fall, although there were a few good days (or sometimes hours) where some of you actually saw me!

Since I last wrote, I’ve received these diagnoses via lab tests from my new doc:

  • Late neurological Lyme disease
  • Bartonella infection
  • Chronic Human herpes virus 6 and Epstein-Barr virus infection
  • Autoimmune reaction to wheat and dairy
  • Sensitive to eggs, almonds, peanuts, soy, and pineapple
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Irritable bowel
  • Irritable bladder
  • Neuropathic, muscle, and joint pain

The good news is that I have been able to stay on treatment for the past six weeks (yay – a first). It involves thirty+ supplements and drugs that I must take every day (including B-12 injections). And I am adding many other detox items to my protocol, including an infrared sauna, which we are expecting to get delivered this week.

The bad news is that I’ve been doing relatively little writing and art. I’ve had to put nearly all of my creative energy into my healing protocol and cooking (since I really can’t eat much off the shelf any more – soy, wheat, dairy and eggs are in everything!).

But I’m moving forward, thanks to my lovely partner-husband, fantastic friends, and a wonderful writing group and writing coach. I am also working with one of my favorite energy healers again, and am signed up to take some weaving and fiber-art related classes this fall.

I’ll try to be better about posting regularly. Thanks for checking in, and don’t forget to let me know you were here by leaving a comment. It’s terribly isolating to be ill for so long, and I love to know when you’ve visited me.

Cheers, and hope to chat soon!
