Quick update!

This week I have had to have two appointments a day. After all the hard work we were finally able to get most of the toxins out of my body for now. I still have a lot of inflammation in my veins and arteries. Some of my worst symptoms right now is chronic inflammation, and the constant buildup of toxins. We don’t really have a lot of other treatments we can try right now, so im going to eat as healthy as I can, and take out gluten, dairy, and soy to clean up my body as much as I can. I have tried similar nutritional changes in the past and I hardly felt any change, so I’m hoping this will help me at least stay stable for a longer amount of time than I’m getting now. I was also able to learn more about my illness this week, and some of severe chemical imbalances I have in my metabolic pathways. I will explain more about all of this later, and I hope to continue to learn more about my illness.

Endurance

The past week I been feeling awful, my body has been very unstable. I have been dealing with multiple problems, on top of my regular symptoms. I have been having a lot of inflammation in my arteries, and a lot toxins in my heart, lungs, stomach, and brain. Since my body has a hard time detoxing it takes multiple treatments and therapies to get rid of some of the toxins. Sometimes I have had to have two appointments a day, and today I finally feel a little bit more stable. I hope this week I will start to feel a little better, and I won’t have to have as many doctor appointments.

Galatians 6:9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

Hebrews 10:36
For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.

Patience

This past week the pain and fatigue have been horrible. We have been treating, and waiting for the infection to leave. We have also been trying to get rid of all of the inflammation in my brain, and my body. I had problems with Cebral spinal fluid(CSF) which then causes my oxygen levels to drop, and intense brain fog.

Fortunately, today we were able to get some of the problems to subside a little bit. Most of the inflammation in my brain has gone down, and my CSF is running better. Being chronically sick, I have learned I have to be patient. Sometimes that can extremely difficult. When your tired and in pain you want to better now, not later. You want answers. You have to wait. Most of these things are out of my control. I have to rely on God.

Miserable

image The past few days I have been feeling awful. Having a cold on top of all my other problems is miserable. It makes me feel even more exhausted. I have more inflammation in my brain and spinal cord. The pain and weakness is awful. I hope we get can everything under control soon!

Just another obstacle!

I am going to start with some good news! This past week my some of my muscle pain has been a little better. It hasn’t been quite as intense and I only had three treatments last week!

I have been dealing with trying to get rid of more toxins, inflammation, and scar tissue. My exhaustion has been worse. My legs have been feeling extremely heavy lately, and it exhausting even walking from room to room around the house.

This journey has been learning an experience. About a year and half ago I had severe brain swelling, and It was the most sick I have ever been. It was extremely painful, and it took me a really long time recover for the most part, but I also know it could have been a lot worse. That experience changed me and my life forever. It taught me so much, about myself, about life, and it brought me closer to God. I am thankful I had caring doctors to help me get through it. I am also thankful that the worst case scenario didn’t happen, and I didn’t have to go to the hospital. I try not to focus on things I can’t control, and focus more on the things I can control. I want to continue to learn, grow and continue to change for the better, and I want to make this a positive experience. I don’t want to spend my time feeling sorry for myself no matter how hard it is. I want to try to find the positive in this, and continue to learn, grow, and feel better!
