Pentru Daniel

Draga Daniel,

Ce pot eu sa iti zic…cu zambet in san si sprinceana ridicata… decat caci peripetiile apartamentului nostru nou continua, lucrul necesar pentru a nu crea o viata plictisitoare.

Asigurarea apartamentului care trebuia sa intre in efect in momentul cand am semnat actele, nu a fost valabila (nu-ti fa necaz si noi am fost la fel de surprinsi cand am aflat) datorita unor confuzii birocratice. Ca atare faptul ca am inundat vecina de jos (fara intentie de data asta) nu este asigurat. Alti bani, alta distractie;) Am fi putut dat in judecata cateva companii dar m-am gandit ca timpul este mai bine folosit in a-mi  recupera sanatatea decat in a ma certa cu avocatii.

Vecina de sus ne scartie tavanul ori de cate ori se misca dintr-o parte in alta… si se misca tanti mult si bine, lucrul care ma face fericita de sanatatea si vigoarea ei dar il streseaza la maxim pe Chet care-i sensibil la galagie. Stim ca la 10:30 pm merge la culcare dupa jumate de ora de umblat cand la stanga cand la dreapta (cred ca face exercitii), la 1 am se scoala pentru o pauza la baie, urmata indeaproate si de noi (daca tot ne-a sculat hai sa golim vezica), si la 6:50 am scularea pentru a merge la munca. Ei inga, i-am zis la Chet ca nu o sa-i placa la apartament, dar daca a insistat… Zilnic ma intreaba acuma el pe mine cand vreau sa ma mut la casa:)))))))))

Saptamana trecuta am aflat ca sunt nevoi de renovari, lucrul de loc socant, arata blocul asta de parca a fost transportat din Europe de Est ca drept amintire victimelor comunistilor, si ca portia noastra va costa in jur de $92 000. Cand am auzit aproape am facut pe mine, lucrul pozitiv in caz ca eram constipata, si dupa ceva transpiratii si prespiratii, am inghitit in sec si mi-am dat seama ca astia vor sa aduca cladirea la standardul de azi cica, macar asa un pic sa nu ne facem de ras. Prea tarziu, ca eu rad acuma de la stres.

Si cum vezi mai Daniele, numai peripetii sa nu mai zic ca Chet si-a castrat sistemul audio nou din cauza vecinei de jos care mi se pare ca are darul de a se plange din orice.

“I had to emasculate my new sound system.” Mi-a zis Chet intr-o seara dupa o alta plangere, si sa-i fi vazut tu fata lui trista, ca ti se rupea inima de durere.

“Cand vrei sa te muti Carmen, ca eu sunt gata sa ma mut acuma.” Mi-a zis trist. Daca as fi stiut ca numai atata ar fi luat sa-l conving ca o casa e mai buna decat un apartament, as fi incercat metoda, dar e bine ca omul in general sa aibe experiente de tot felul.

Deci dupa cum vezi Daniel, peripetiile apartamentului nou continua si cine stie ce iti voi mai zice pe viitor? Sper ca tu esti bine si vecinii tai nu-ti fac necaz, ca viata ti-e plina de peripetii  si deabea astept sa ne vedem in vara:)

Cu drag, Carmen:)

Teasel Root

Last Monday (2/12/2018), I began a semi-new Lyme treatment protocol; a mix of tinctures such as Lyme 2 (for chronic Lyme) which follows the Buhner’s Protocol, Burbur-Pinella brain-nerve cleanse detox which is known for helping tremendously with any Herximer reactions (it really does help me) and the new addition -I actually start with this one- is Teasel Root known for its ability to pull bacteria (spirochetes) from tissue into the bloodstream exposing it to the autoimmune system or treatment.

I was aware before I began the treatment that I would start feeling rotten for a while due to die-off but how will I ever feel better and get rid of something as horrible as Lyme bacteria without being willing to go through the harshness of the process? That being said please read on the Teasel contraindications as there are few (don’t take it if you’re pregnant, have heart disease, kidney stones, etc), be wise, aks your doctor or naturopath before proceeding and start slow (one drop a day, build up to 9 drops a day, which should take about a week.)

Thursday, on day four, I woke up with severe joint/bone pain a total of 24 hours reminding me just how painful this disease really is (my least painful moments being a 7.5 on a scale of 1 to 10). It also predominated my weak joints (hips). I went for a walk anyway, mustering through every step, which surprisingly helped. Flu-like symptoms are another side-effect I noticed, but mostly a severe cervical neck muscles stiffness (can’t touch my upper chest with my chin due to the intense pain and stiffness, something I had no problem doing before I began), and this shows me the bacteria has hidden in my neck/occipital area (Stiff neck is one of Lyme’s symptoms among other diseases). The past two days I’ve woken up with a harsh headache, predominant in the occipital area. I feel as if my brain is inflamed. Also very short attention span, swollen eye-lids in the morning and irritability, but as I’m writing these symptoms down they seem worse on paper than I really feel they are on me. I’m so used to pain that these issues don’t seem so bad to me.

This entry is fully for the Lymies fellows fighting this harsh battle in hopes that any of this information may help you recover as fast as possible from your suffering.

Have a pain free day and God Bless.

For you

Not sure who needs to read these words, but here I go.

For the one that’s hurting, with tears of sorrow and discouragement running down your face and heart, from yet another blow life just hit you with:

Picture the outcome you want and in due time it will come to pass. The road will not be void of pain, struggles, and failures, but it will not be void of success, victory, and hope either. You must fight for the outcome you’re picturing and never doubt you’re not strong enough:)

God Bless:)
