Dear Julia B.
As I read your post about symptoms, I decided to go back through previous post to research information from past warriors. It is my understanding that this disease has cycles and it is part of the recovery. The following information should help to reassure you and others just how amazing and consistent this website and community is.
Quote from Peter regarding information shared by Mel during a conference call:
"I recently listened to an archived conference call from a few years back which reaffirmed something significant, as it applied to my own experiences. During the call, you discussed newly discovered information about a greater five week cycle where symptoms become more aggressively active. I will change my definition of symptoms. Instead, a better choice is to consider thinking that inflammation, blotching, and other expressions are “singular” events that are simply our body’s various reactions as it heals infection."
Although it was from years ago, the Science is sound. We will experience symptoms through various cycles as we heal.
I hope this helps to calm your fears. “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10
In Christ Love,
|More communication is better!|
I am glad you enjoyed hearing everyone's voices on the calls you were able to attend.
I hope you were able to find some foods to eat that are calcium rich. Your salad sounds good, but I would probably use boiled eggs, as I like them a lot in salads.
Thank you for the encouraging thought, that we will all get through this and become better human beings.
I support you in your belief that you can face and clean those areas in your home that you still have to tackle. It might not be easy, but I believe you can do it.
You might have increased itchiness and tiredness at times, and this disease certainly can be emotionally draining.
Read the thread, "What is under our control" that Karen started. In there you will find tips that will help you when you start feeling down.
Also read as much as possible of the forum. By doing that, you will discover that many others who were regaining their health had periods of time with increased symptoms.
Be aware when there is an upcoming full moon. Your symptoms might increase then.
Be armed with all of the knowledge that you can possibly get from this forum and the calls, so that you have something to fall back on when you experience increased symptoms or anxiety.
I hope you feel better again soon.
