I had Moderna #1 (offered because of where I work) and spent about 2 days in bed. Then about 7 more days dragging and barely making it through my part time work days. Nausea and fatigue were the main symptoms. I had a more severe reaction than all the elders I know (family members) :rofl...

HPA axis dysfunction. Some doctors have heard of it, some haven't. The ND I was working with said there's no evidence of HPA suppression with hydrocortisone doses under 20 mg/day. I think I took 20 mg briefly but mostly stuck at 10 mg. 20 seemed risky. Then I started skipping doses with no...

So I was on an upswing for a while. Famous last words. I was getting ready to attempt a Risky Midwinter Travel scheme to visit my family. Shuttle+ airport+ plane= 5 hrs each way. What a great idea! My dad's 72nd birthday, I did have hopes. When suddenly.... Shingles!! :eek: I thought that...

Spring was an upswing because I was finally free of SIBO symptoms after 2+ years and "I refuse to keep track of how many" rounds of treatment. (mostly herbal). So fun! I started to eat... raw cabbage again (coleslaw). I was able to work... maybe 30 hours/week (and that is a healthy metric?!)...

We had a *biggest in decades* snow Event (unusual in the NW) over the last 2 weeks. (Yes I've lived in places where snow is not all by itself cause for complete & utter panic. Western WA is not one of them.) I thought we would lose power so did all the Prep things- shopped, cooked, cleaned...

I got to have a bodywork session the other day with... well, she's basically a Magician. She listens to my organs and tells me what they tell her. My duodenum was all inflamed and there was something wrong with the pancreatic duct. Her theory is that the duodenum was not getting enough...

Tomorrow is last day for oregano. All of this is giving me MAD RESPECT for plants. :tulip::globe: Taking it for SIBO (round...5? 6? of treatment) but I suspect it is treating Lyme too. Started slowly and took 2 weeks to increase to 6 caps/day. It has been kicking me to the CURB. :zippit...

So I'm now taking 1 1/4 capsules of Megaspore. I have to inch up in 1/4 cap amounts and still it knocks me out the next day. The other night, after going back up to 1 1/4 after a few days at 1 capsule, I woke up at 3 am with lymph nodes so painful I couldn't lie on my sides. Only under my arms...

Event: Son's college graduation Directions: Arrive early for best parking and seating. No tickets, no reserved seats. So, because I'm so smart (read: brain damaged) I decided to go 2 hours early with elderly mother in law, who is much healthier than I am. Arrive. Nobody there. Except loud...

I can't even type that word. What I'm bailing from. Let's just say "e-diet." Increasing nausea and stomach pain, and a bout of vomiting.... I couldn't take it anymore. Quit after day 8. Something is wrong. This isn't just die-off. My new theory (mine and Dr. Internet's) is that there's some...

I'm at the point where I'd rather fast. The nausea from the sick sweet powder and oil... diarrhea from the oil... sugar coma headache. Originally I was aiming for 30 days. I've already mentally adjusted to 3 weeks but even that seems impossible today. One of my friends told me it's like...

1. Don't buy the full amount of powder that you *think* you will need all at once. I followed the directions on the Integrative Therapeutics website and ordered a whopping TEN pouches. Non-returnable of course. I was committed! I was going to STICK. It. OUT!. Turns out I'm downing way less than...
