Thank you Wishful for your concern. There were two infections in July and August, and then things never got back to the regular-bad-normal. She tells me it's unsustainable and getting worse every day. She is bed bound. The primary symptom is flu feeling, and then the nightmare PEM, and burning all over. You know, it's as if the body cannot seem to sustain any kind of 'stressor.' She had trouble fighting off the first infection, and so more antibiotic was given and finally the second one (which I believe was just the first infection) retreated. But it's as though in this horrific illness no stressor is possible to withstand, whether it is physical, emotion, intellectual, or any other sort.
