Reflection, taking stock

I've been contemplating writing something and/or posting some questions in the forums here, but each time I find a reason to distract myself away from that effort.  This time I've decided to forget about posting in the forums and to just type something up, something to summarize the thoughts and ideas I've been having and the questions on my mind.

Where to begin?  Well, begin with the thing that ways heaviest on my mind.  I'm in a deep, dark hole, one only partially caused by antibioticsi, but also life throws it's little hand in there too.  I'm struggling with things but not about to give up...yet.  Before I ever do such a thing, I have to try something else on my mind, which leads me to my first question, never before posed (by me).

Day 3 of Pulse 14

In the past, I've posted just before starting a pulse. This time, I was caught between being on vacation, scatter-brained, and distracted, and so I didn't follow that pattern as I had in the past. No matter, there are no rules. :-)

Ella's CAP progress

I have been looking back on the progress of Ella's recovery over the past 15 months and Jim suggests that I might now be able to see a pattern developing in the effects of the CAPi on her health.

update time



June 18, 2007              -           started taking azith 150 MWF & doxyi 200

It is official.....update


Vitaminsi are ramping up, Niacin">i 375 mg, NACi for 3 wks now 2gms, D 1600U, along with all the rest of the Wheldon recommended supplementsi & what I normally take.

13 underway

Here I am, day 1 of pulse 13.  I'm really surprised at how fast this has really gone by.  It's not just the CAPi, it's my life, just swinging on by, day by day, one after the next.  It may be that I'm just eager to get through this, eager to get to the other side and some dramatic improvement.  13 pulses, afterall, isn't a minor effort.  I've been doing this for a while now.

They're in the starting gate...&...they're offff....

Well, finally today my additional supplementsi recommended for the protocol have arrived!

I just had a snack, took the NAC & a few others, sorted & wrote on all the bottles & now I am tired & I need a nap!  Oregano Oil makes your lips feel funny!  I will have 3 weeks of NAC under my belt when I see my MD next on June 22.  Then I will have my prescriptions for the switch to the Wheldon Protocol.

a little bit of good news

As mentioned, I got in to see my doctor on May 24.  This was unexpected as his schedule was so backed up, I was being told that I wouldn't get in until September at the earliest.  I was quite suprised and relieved to see him as I had been able to go by and have a blood drawn to check my liver, and wanted to find out what the results where.

As it turns out, I'm in the process of growing a second liver as a redundant system.  No, just kidding.  My liver is fine.  This is good news as I was concerned about some pain I was having in my back towards the lower lateral on the right side, which also extended around my oblique to my abs.  Very strange as I don't often have pain.

apoptosis or ???

Over the last two week, before my last pulse, and up to today I've been having some pain in my back and abdomen.  It's in the middle of my back and wrap around the oblique on the right side to the front.  It isn't continuous, sometimes its worse, sometimes its better.  At times, the pain is mainly in the back while at other times, it's both front and back.

I've been chalking up the pain to over exertion at the gym.  I thought maybe I strained a back muscle or group of muscles.  I still haven't given up on that idea; however, I'm wondering if maybe apoptosisi is what is really happening, I don't know.  It's been suggested that it could be a problem with my gall bladder, so the possibilities are endless.

post pulse 12

I just finished pulse 12 yesterday.  It went as all of the previous pulses went, with one small exception.  I'm not even sure if it was the pulse or something else.  Allow me to elaborate.

As I've mentioned in the past here, I go to the gym on a regular basis.  I generally take my final dose of abxi immediately after I finish working out.  At times when I'm pulsing, this would include the final dose of flagyli.

So on Tuesday of this week, about 15 minutes after taking my final abxi of the day, I was standing and talking to a friend at the gym, preparing to leave.  I suddenly got VERY light headed, so much so I had to sit down.  My balance went all haywire and I almost lost it going from where I was standing to a chair nearby.

on the eve of 12

I'm about to embark on pulse 12 this coming Saturday.  It's been a journey, with ups and downs.  I'm working my way through this all and seeing where it leads.

Over the year or more that I've been here, I've often read about how as one goes through the CAPi that it's common to take two steps forward, one step back, or is it  two forward, two back.  I'm sure that both cases are possible and even likely.

Blurred Locomotion, Fuzzy Reality

It has happened again - tinadazole is easy for me but the aftermath is no gain. Last year I did three pulses of tinii because of the National Dairy Goat Show - I simply did not have time to be "out of the loop" - (loopy, that is!) so it was an excellent time to try this magical drug that didn't send you reeling to the bottom of the well. After days of waiting for events to occurI realized they weren't going to. They didn't; nothing happened that I could tell, except that my walking became - well - mushy. So I went back to flagyli. I have done nine or ten of flagyl with very clear- cut inprovements since then. Spring came (?) again, bringing 23 kids (one of these days, we will figure out what's causing that!), hours in the barn, classification, etc.

Striking a Balance in CAP Treatment

My hamstrings, left knee, and glute's are crying out for a Flagyli pulse, but I am afraid of the deficits in my left hand and parasthesias from the last one. I think this is the longest I have ever delayed a pulse and my knee is very sensitized and irritably swollen to show for it, often giving way beneath me whilst attempting to go about my daily business. I have been able to tolerate 600mg NACi daily now for about three weeks and about 1000iu's of D3/day as well. Lots of muscle tightness and pain, which makes me really wonder about the replicants/EB ratio model. It makes sense to me that the increase in aches and pains[which make ambulation nearly impossible]seem to correlate with the image of EB'si spiralling out of control due to many months of taking doxyi and azith. Hmmm..

Where is the one-page description of the protocols, please?

I'm sorry, but I can no longer find a page that describes the protocol -- did it disappear during the site meltdown a few weeks back? I mean, we all know it, so we never look, but a newbie might find it hard. Can anyone please reply with a link? Ron

my progress, on reflection...

For a couple of weeks, I've been trying to pay increasing attention to myself and how I'm responding to the Wheldon protocol. I've been trying to identify concrete ways that I have improved and am improving. The conclusion I've come to is that I am improving. I come to this conclusion timidly because I don't want to delude myself or mislead others.
