Need a Word of Encouragement

A word of encouragement?? I haven't checked in for quite a while. Been doing ok, but have been undergoing Vitamin C IV treatments for 4 weeks followed by Rifampin 150mg twice a day for 4 days.  My energy is zapped and the Rifampin feels like poision to my body.

Following my own advice - sort of

I have blogged several times suggesting that people (like me) who are doing the CAPi on their own stick religiously to one of the protocolsi until they had enough experience with it to know how they were going to react and thus have a "baseline" for comparison with any changes that they make. 

I have followed this advice for a year through 12 flagyli pulses.  Having lamented about the fact that I was not getting the kind of reaction to the later pulses that I got to the earlier ones, I decided to make a change.  Knowing the NACi and Amoxicillini had the same effect on CPni Elementary Bodies, but that Amoxicillin was also effective against other pathogens that might be co-infectionsi, I decided to add Amoxicillin to my antibioticsi.  

1st week on Mino & wondering?

Well, I don't have to tell you that I am pleased things turned out pretty good for me. The first few days of Minoi were misery but then things began to settle down. The last couple days I haven't had to take extra Emergen-C but I am still stiff and achy. Plus my eyes are so red some folks at the store look at me as if I am crying OR stoned... sympathy or disdain. Of course either way I don't appreciate the vibes so quickly move on. Also I have daily coughing sessions and about gag at times trying to break loose the mucus stuck in my bronchial airways. (sorry) Sometimes it just feels like a hair stuck in my throat. It is worse for me in the mornings.

The Unbroken Circle or: It's the Rifampin, Stupid

Last month I added Rifampin to my arsenal again, after taking it twice a day for sixteen months and stopping it in Jan., 06. A few things have happened since I started Rifampin a few weeks ago. I decided I should set them to paper while I am lucid (so to speak).

Nothing Fancy This Time

Pulse Number 12 completed on August 28, 2008 and I didn't get a chance to find out what any of the Emergency Rooms looked like.  I'll report more on the die-off aftermath when and if there is anything to report, but so far it has been unremarkable.

 

I'm stepping off

I have been more debilitated, for a longer continual period of time than ever in my life, since starting the CAPi.

I have been bed ridden almost completely for 6 weeks. I am in pain, I am weak, I throw up almost every day. I finally learn which anti-porphyric and endotoxini measures work best for what, and how and when to take them, when the very measures that are supposed to help me end up making me sicker. I do all the things right so that I don't get side effects -- from anything -- and I am run over and flattened. I should not feel this bad, I'm doing everything not to.

BACTERIA/LYME BY ROOT CANALS?

If Lyme can be caused though having a root canal done -as it is said by the Doctor Steven Harris, M.D, in the conference he presented - the link given here by lifeontheice<: and now I read in the website healingdaily an article called “Should you have root canals? Where they talk about this Doctor, expert in root canals, who then found that this “repair in the tooth” might be the biggest cause of bacteria in the mouth and then the body. The article says:

With Apologies to Willie Nelson

On the road again

Just can't wait to get on the road again

The life I love is doin' Flagyli in strange towns

And I can't wait to get on the road again.

Pulse #12 beckons.  In Houston this time. 

 

Chronicles of a Rifampinaut: the war continues at Pulse 26

On the eve of pulse 26, I can't help but reflect on some things that people here as well as in my day-to-day life have suggested to me.  The suggestions have been good, considerate ones, and I recognize that; however, I have decided not to take the suggestions, at least not yet.

What suggestions am I referring to?  I'm referring to the suggestion that I get a cane or a walker.  I refuse, outright, until I have no other choice.  And despite the hell I put myself through, I have a choice, and I choose to fight.

Antibiotics to be available without prescription

This is the news:  In England, possible antibioticsi to be sold over the counter, to treat CHLAMYDIA!

This is the story form http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2008/aug/06/health<

Oral antibiotics are to be made available for the first time without doctor's prescription under guidelines approved yesterday by the medicines regulator.

A pill to treat chlamydia, the most commonly diagnosed sexually transmitted infection, will become available for purchase in pharmacies across England later this year.

The bugs' long-overdue deaths

The title was suggested by a conversation between two of our most battle-hardened warriors, and I couldn't resist it. This has been one of the most eventful years of my life - busy, too. Beginning in January with surgery and moving through kidding season, then a very, very good show season, this last taking a temporary break after the best Nationals in years, then linear classification of our goats, now a break for the really bad August heat (this is AFTER the really bad July heat), then a resumption of show season next month, which wil begin my fifth year of MS treatment.

If you think its monotonous to read this....

Pulse #11 completed August 1, 2008. 

Cutting back

After a couple months on 500mg/day of azi I just couldn't take it any more. The constant bone-deep flu-like achiness is just too miserable to tolerate for months on end. After just a few days back at 250mg I'm starting to feel better. My doc and I agreed I should stay at 250mg/day for the azi for a while and we're going to add some bactrim. Hopefully that will make things a little easier. I just got a prescription for my next flagyli pulse and the bactrim so now I'm trying to decide if I should wait until after my flagyl pulse to start the bactrim since starting both at once might be too much. What do you think?

Where's the excitement in that?

Well, it's time to start pulse #11.  Unlike the last few pulses, I'm not going to be on the road while I do this one.  The tension of being out of town and wondering if I was going to have a reaction that would leave me spending the night in a hospital emergency room just added to the "excitement" of each trip.  Being home for a pulse may make the week anticlimactic.  I'll let you know if anything interesting happens.

Is Tinnitus a result of CPN?

My friend Isabelle is suffering a severe Tinnitus">i and she has been told that she just have to learn  to live with it.  It is true that she worked in a very loud environment, but I remember her having very strong "colds" and "flus"; so, because I saw that this illness was mentioned here, I would like to ask if it might be relationed with CPNi and if it is treated as the MSi?

Can someone help my friend guiding her as to what to do?  she is living in South America...

Thank you very much to everyone!

 

Marie.
