“Gypsies stole a tank in the village of Ljubimovka. Once again. Gypsies. Tank. They stole. From the Russians, “write the locals. Kachovky, in the village of Ljubimovka in the Kherson region, informs Unian.

“Actually, I don’t know how to tell you, but some Roma stole a tank from the Russians. I’ve never been more proud, “wrote one Twitter user.

When my brother, Alin, shared this news with us- our Damean family- on Whatup I laughed so hard for a long time. God answers in funny ways our prayers. Now we need the Roma, or gypsies in the area to steal the rest of Rusia’s army equipments and Ukraine will be safe. I had to share this.

God Bless:)

Ukraine- We Pray for you

I join the millions of people on this earth and pray for Ukraine, the land of my great-grandpa- I’m sure I have distant relatives there- and for the rest of the world governments not to just sit on their asses and do nothing to help.

My baby sister who lives in Europe, tolled me today some of the news coming from Romania: About 10000 refugees, mostly women and children entered Romani looking for safety. Interestingly enough that’s how my great-grandpa on my mother’s side came to live in Romania too. All dual citizenship Romanian- Ukraine, can enter Romania without problems. If not a citizen only children and women are allowed in, the men are sent to fight for their country. Lots of churches and missions await the refugee at the borders with food and water. I am so proud of my country Romania for the help they provide to the our neighbors the Ukrainian refugee. I continue to align myself and pray for this to stop.

God be with Ukraine

The war

Like many of you, I’m speechless to see what’s going on in Ukraine, which borders Romania on the east side. I was born in Romania, but my great-grandfather came from Ukraine. Funny, he ran from his country with his brothers during the WWI looking for refuge, and worked for food in the nearest Romanian village until he settled. So I guess I could say it’s personal what’s going on in Ukraine as I’m sure it is for many of my readers.

China launched 9 airstrikes against Taiwan the same time Russia began theirs attack against Ukraine. Coincidence? I think not, meanwhile the fanatical left- not the normal people that consider themselves democrats politically- are pushing communism into the veins of this country forcefully. I recognize it because I grew up in communism. God help us to wake up to what’s really going on.

I pray for those in harms way to find some refuge and escape this nightmare.

God bless

P.S. Some transportation companies in Romania are volunteering their time and equipment- busses- to help Ukrainian refugee. So proud of them:)

Războiul urlă

Mi-o amuțit, o Doamne, sufletul

Și inima mi sa întunecat

Când văd războiul ăst cum urlă

Și cum atacă om nevinovat și vinovat.

Mă-ntreb în mine: Doamne,

Chiar este ceea ce văd adevărat?

Mă-alătur celor care strigă-acuma

Și-ți cere ție ajutor, dar ce păcat

Că ura, spaima și furtuna

Învinge iară pentru un moment. 

Deschide Doamne inimile dure

Adu-aminte oamenilor de iubirea 

Care tot timpul tu ai arătat.

Ajută-ne acuma să vedem

Că sufletul nostru iară e întunecat!

Noi cerem ajutor, milă și îndurare

Și așteptăm miracol, revelare

Dar și tu plângi când vezi ce comportare

Avem. Suntem atât de cruzi!

De egoiști, le lași, plini de mizerie în gândire.

Cum de-am ajuns aici?

Eu mă întreb.

Și așteptăm miracol, revelare

Noi am uitat un lucru:

Pe cel de lângă noi să îl iubim.

Atât pe ei cât și pe noi

Sau mult prea mult pe noi 

Și nu de-ajuns pe alții?

Avem nevoie Doamne să ne-ajuți, să ne îndreptăm

Altfel cu toții vom pieri. –de Carmen McKnight

Confusion

Hi guys.

Trying to understand Chronic Lyme Disease and all the co-infections that come along and affect some of us is like reading a book with every other page missing only to find out the last chapter is all together gone. Sheer confusion.

It’s very hard writing today’s blog, I’m misspelling big time and I am a little confused since I’m recovering from a mild seizure. But I’ll get through this as I got through so many other ones.

Thank God for doctors and practitioners that keep learning, for the research being done and other people who are speaking out for those who can’t. I’ve been following some of these wonderful people on the Lyme Summit https://lyme.drsummits.com/free-access-day-3/?oid=8&ref=2095 going on right now. It’s free and if you haven’t heard about it there’s still some time left. It’s day 4 or 5 I believe.

I listened today to Dr. Kevin Conners, Day 2, https://www.connersclinic.com/, and I finally understood some things I wish I would’ve known earlier. But it’s never too late. Here’s what I got out of it, but you should listen for yourself if it’s still available.

There’s really three Phases to Lyme:

Phase l: Acute- meaning right after you get bit and the bacterium are still in the bloodstream and extracellular spaces (outside of cells). In this phase antibiotic treatment works perfectly and it’s the only way to really kill them before they multiply. If you wait for test results it may be too late for some antibiotic treatment is recommended right away. I’m not a doctor so go consult one. How rapid it goes into Phase ll depends on the health of your immune system- that’s why some recover while others don’t. You see they can’t reproduce- which is the bacterium’s highest desire- while in the bloodstream. It’s like trying to have babies while traveling on the freeway. So they have to find a safe space, usually by exiting the freeway- bloodstream- and looking for a house in the suburbs- meaning any tissues away from exposure to the antibodies. So they enter into our own tissue cells- a sort of uninvited guests refusing to leave- and that’s when we move into Phase ll.

Phase ll: They’ve moved inside a cell and now they can get busy and have lots of babies. The house walls- or the cell membranes- protect them from the police/army- or Th1 immune responders. Once the kids grow up and become teenagers they no longer want to abide my mom and dad’s rules so they leave. Once on the freeway they can easily get killed by the police looking for them- meaning, this is when the antibiotic treatment works and kills the wonderers, the patient feels better for a period of time only to relapse and feel bad again, when the next sets of teenager leave home and the cycle just keeps on going. That’s why even long term antibiotic treatments does not work to eradicate ALL Lyme bacterium. Antibiotics and Th1 can kill only the bacterium outside the cells before they enter other cells but can’t get to the ones already inside. This phase can last for many years and can be very miserable and painful.

Phase lll: This is when it an autoimmune response and an autoimmune disease develops as a result of confused B cells. But I’m getting ahead of myself.

Here is where a teeter-totter happens between Th1 (army like immune responder) and Th2 (CIA investigators that take over usually when the army is overwhelmed by pathogen resistance) these two go at it for months confusing the B cells (immune responders produced in the bone) who then can’t find the antibodies (every pathogen and remember pathogens are the bad guys, has its own unique hat which distinguish them for life) of lyme and they start making antibodies against the self cells (your own cells). or ” Lyme pathogens has gone inside the cell, you have a teeter-totter of Th1 firing trying to kill, Th2 firing to try to make antibodies against the pathogen and at some point in time with some people, not everyone, you start making antibodies against the cells in the tissue where the pathogen is found.”- Dr. Kevin Conners

This phase I still don’t fully get.

The immune system is really doing it’s job by attacking and killing- so that’s not what’s off, it’s the fact that starts to get confused which is the enemy and which is not.

HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU’RE IN PHASE III?

If you take any immune stimulants such as Vit. C, echinacea, mushrooms, cat’s claw, etc and you have a reaction, that’s not a Herx reaction, you’re simply promoting your immune system to kill your own cells, and that’s what you feel. The death of your own cell tissues.

IS THERE ANY CURE?

There’s still not an answer I find satisfactory to this question. So far.

Also I have been confused about many treatment approaches so if you’re in the same boat as me, let me share with you what I’ve learned.

Treatment to kill approach- which was my approach- no matte how sick you get and how bad the Herx reaction get is not the way to go. Why? Because of the blocked detoxification paths in the body, such as; pooping, sweating and liver function. If any of these are not working at their absolute best don’t bother doing the killing because if will only overload you with more toxins from die off -because they can’t leave the body- and you’ll end up feeling worse. You see I can’t really sweat. I never thought much about it in the past but now I know it’s not a good sign. At times when I try, I either feel like i’m going to pass out- heat intolerance if I try to sit in a hot steamy bathroom or the sun, or hot weather- or my pores start to sting all over my body, a sort of sting/itch unpleasant sensation, or I fatigue quickly when I try to exercise and can’t get to the levels you need to get in order to sweat. So what can I do? I heard the proper Rife machine will help and an infrared sauna. I haven’t tried either of them and I’m not sure how I would do in the sauna, but I think I need to try. The Rife machine has infrared frequency which shakes the pathogens out of the cells, and once out of the cells they can be killed by antibiotic or herbal treatment, after the detoxification channels in the body have been brought to optimal health. But if I’m already full of toxins that’s not good. So first I need to detox.

Dr. Kevin Conners has free books on his website for anyone interested. I just got the “7 Phases of Detoxification” book today and I’m looking forward to read it. He has other books you can download for free, which I find very helpful.

Quick outline of his detox book: Phase 6-Elimination (pooping), Phase 5: Binding toxins in the gut, Phase 4; Health of the gallbladder and the flow of bile, Phase 3,2,1, are about the liver, genetics and assessments, and there’s Phase 0 which I forgot what’s about.

As I close this blog, i hope some of the things I learned and shared with you today may can help you the way it did me. My next focus will be on proper detoxification. In order to do that I need to read the book.

Valentine, My valentine

Valentine, my valentine

Where are we going to dine?

Dine you say? My gosh sweet man

I would rather stay right in

And be comfy, strike a grin

Watch a show on out Tv,

Let the young ones fuss and spin.

I’m no longer all that young,

And I’d rather lay around

In pajamas. What you say? -Carmen McKnight

That’s all I could come up with today:) Well…happy Valentine’s Day you lovely people! Big plans? Small ones? Whose gotten into trouble by forgetting your loved one? Better make it up quick or there’ll be trouble I say! Big trouble!

For all you party poopers, if you don’t care to celebrate Valentine’s Day- here I include myself-go and celebrate something else, but do celebrate life and stop being a party pooper. Life is better among friends, laughter, good food and great stories! So go out and at least take a walk, it’s sunny -sort of- and listen to the birds, watch the flower buds spring to life and remember life’s beautiful:)

God Bless:)

When will it be completed?

Like many Lyme warriors, I’ve gained a certain amount of my health. A certain. I want the rest. I want to be COMPLETELY healthy, not semi. I am aging, so I have to keep those aging issues everyone deals with in account, and learn every day to be patient. But I’m getting impatient with this last mile or so of this race. The neurological issues I’m still struggling with, are they from menopause, aging or Neuro Lyme? Or all three? I’d like to believe that I can recover fully but as of now reality still keeps me in a neurological disadvantage; if I walk too long my left leg refuses to lift and I start to stumble over myself, I forget and also remember, my attention span is the length of a gold fish, I’m moody and irritable with boring people, I have high anxiety leaving my house. Odd contrast to my original personality. I can’t look people in the eye while talking without felling strong nausea waves hit my gut followed by high levels of agitation. Another odd contrast to my original personality.

What’s going on? Was I better at hiding or ignoring these details in the past? Or is my mind deteriorating? I think it’s a bit of both.

While the CDC reported 427,000 new cases in 2017 based on surveillance criteria, actual numbers on clinical diagnosis put that number at well over one million. It is now well accepted that 10 to 20 % of these cases go on to become chronic illness, and these numbers don’t even include those people who become chronically ill without ever witnessing a tick attachment or a bull’s-eye rash. In other words hundreds of thousands of people develop a chronic illness every year with Lyme disease.“-Recovery from Lyme Disease, an Integrative Medicine Guide to Diagnosing and Treating Tick-Borne Illness, by Daniel A. Kinderlehrer, MD

I just got his book from Amazon today and I do hope to find the answers that have evaded me this far. I’m a little confused at times as to certain treatments for chronic Lyme disease and multiple co-infections since due to its complicated essence. I hope this book will reveal the answers I’m looking for. I’ll let you know if it does.

Have you read this book already? Did it help you? Please leave me a comment down below to what you found helpful in the book and don’t forget to subscribe.

God Bless:)

A trecut un an deja?

Eu cu mama- 1974

Nu imi vine sa cred. Nu ne vine sa credem. Durerea e ca ieri de mare. Ne e dor enorm de ea. Dar cand imi aduc aminte ca nu mai are dureri pe acest pamant mi se mai amelioreaza durerea. Stiind ca suferinta ei sa terminat si acuma e cu Domnul, imi aduce mangaiere in suflet dar tot mi-e dor de ea si vreau sa-o vad, sa vorbim, sa dezbatem unele lucruri, sa-i aud glasul, sa-mi dea un sfat, sa radem, sa glumim, sa cantam si multe altele.

Nu sunt singura in aceasta suparare. Fratii, surorile, tata, surorile mamei si fratii ei, prietenele si cei ce au cunoscut-o simt la fel. O vad in vis des, tot timpul imi zambeste, rareori vorbeste, niciodata nu ma lasa sa o ating. Diferite dimensiuni, diferite lumi, asta de aici si cea de dincolo.

O simt pe mama in pasarele care ciripesc in jur, in pasarea colibri care viziteaza curtea noastra zilnic. Vorbesc cu ea cand smulg buruienile in curte, sau fac mancare. Mai ma uit la un video, mai ascult o inregistrare audio.

Pentru toti care v-ati pierdut mamele, inteleg durerea si golul. Dar ii multumesc lui Dumnezeu ca am avut privilegiu sa le avem o perioada de timp in vietile noastre, si sa invatam multe lucruri importante de la ele.

Pentru cei care inca-o aveti in viata pe mama, da-tii telefon daca sunte-ti departe, spune-tii ca o iubiti, ajutati-o si imbarbatati-o, si aduce-tii aminte cat de pretioasa este. Nici o mama nu-i perfecta, precum nici noi nu suntem ca si copii, dar iubirea unei mame e adanca, si de multe ori am vazut iubirea lui Dumnezeu fata de mine mai degraba prin exemplu mamei decat orice orator bun de la amvon.

Pentru cei care trece-ti prin suferinta covidului, precum majoritatea din familia noastra trece acuma-frati si surori- ma rog ca Bunul Dumnezeu sa va intareasca sistemul imun si sa trece-ti cu bine si peste asta.

O zi buna si multa sanatate cu pace.

Gob Bless:)
