I've continued to do quite well since my last post 12 days ago. In fact, I've been feeling downright healthy and energetic the past few days. I've been slowly increasing how much work I do around the house (tidying, dishes, cooking, laundry, light cleaning, gardening, going upstairs and back down), and I'm not suffering for it. My legs were a bit sore up until a couple days ago, probably due to the extra activity, but no PEM at all. My back still gets a bit sore when standing still for a while (cleaning out the espresso machine), but it passes quickly, and the only things aching are the muscles I have been using. You know, like wot happens to normal folk! Currently I'm doing about 3x as much around the house as I was prior to starting IV antibiotics. Sleep is good, no ME pain, no brain fog, no sleep problems. I'm still being careful ... letting my muscles recover from additional activities before adding even more. But definitely making progress. I think I'm in remission, and I hope it lasts! Heart rate is also doing a lot better. Getting my mobility scooter out the shed for a long "walk" still sends it up to 120, but then it's back to 80 within a minute of sitting in it instead of taking 5 or 10 minutes to recover. So even though I'm not back to "healthy", I seem to be recovering normally from activities. As expected, I don't need CBT or GET to work through any deconditioning at this stage, now that my body is capable of normal responses to exertion. It feels great psychologically to be able to safely do more around the house, and be less of a burden on the fiance who works full time, advocates on my behalf with various entities part time, and takes care of the house part time. At least I can put a dent into one of his part-time jobs It also feels good physically now to carefully stretch the physical boundaries of my muscles and lungs, etc. I start my next round of IV antibiotics (azithromycin) in 6 days. It should be a lot easier to handle than the last round was, now that I'm somewhat more functional.
