My previous post was about my 4 great days! Today I hit a wall, a big one!! I woke up feeling really sick, needed to puke but knew nothing would actually come out, pain, oh the pain! It was/is everywhere, my entire body. It hurts to sit, stand, lay, you name it. My hubby had plans with the guys today for the whole day but I had to ask him to stay home because I knew I wouldn't be able to handle watching my daughter. Well, I could have but I would have been in much more pain and felt much more sick if he would have left. After I knew he would stay I went back to bed. The pain was so bad. My entire legs were the worst and it was the kind of pain where you couldn't stop moving. I finally got tired enough that I slept for another 4 hours. Sleep makes a huge difference. I was still in pain and felt sick when I woke up but it was so much better than before. At that point the worst was where my head connects to my neck, the base of my scull was pretty painful. Right now as I type this I am not as bad as I was this morning. The worst as of now is my scull and my lower back which is pretty numb from an ice pack. Time to sign off to go use my wax bath on my hands and to detox using my epsom salt bath!
I had 4 whole days that I felt great, I would say about 80%!!! Which is awesome in my book! I thought for sure I would pay for my busy Thursday that night but I still felt great. It was a little crazy. I run a daycare and my day consisted of- get the kids (6 of them)dressed and loaded into the van to bring my daughter to preschool, drop off, come home, unload and undress for snack, eat snack, get the kids totally dressed in their outside gear to play in the snow, play in the snow, come in, undress and make lunch, lunch made & time to pick up daughter, redress all the kids and load into van, pick up daughter, come home & unload and undress to eat lunch. Naptime, phew! That was exhausting!!!!!! My last good day which was yesterday I went sledding with my hubby and daughter, I knew I would be pushing my luck but I am tired of missing out on things. It was fun but two times up the hill and my body was burning and I had enough. Today...well today isn't good but I will save that for my next post. I am just happy to have 4 great days!!!

Last night I used my portable sauna for the first time. I was feeling toxic and have a lot of die off lately. I was told by my doc to start SLOW when I decided to go back to using the sauna for detoxing and to kill more bugs because I got very sick and herxed BADLY when I used one a while back. It worked but it was way too overwhelming for my body to handle. Last night I felt like hell afterwards and today too. I couldn't sleep because I felt so nauseous, could feel my brain swelling(or that's what it felt like anyways), and I was super weak. Today I feel about the same and super drained. I would say it was a herx, but now I am not sure. Maybe because I stayed in for only 15 minutes and didn't sweat much my body is sick because I just ticked (haha no pun intended) things off but didn't sweat them off? I do know my meds are working and there is a TON of die off right now and either way I feel nasty, this just upped the ante! Let's hope it means a lot of die off from the sauna too!!!

Because of a couple recent donations I was able to purchase a portable Infrared Sauna! I am so, so, so thankful!!!!! This will help my healing so much! Now I can jump in anytime I need to get more die off OUT of my body and kill of more bugs! Yay, this is a huge part of my healing!!!!!

What do we do when our children have Lyme. We FIGHT! We fight to protect them and we fight to cure them! Please watch!
If I fall asleep now, I will get 6 hours of sleep. If I fall asleep now, I will get 5 hours of sleep. If I fall asleep now, I will get FOUR hours of sleep ahhhhhhhh!!!!! Tomorrow's going to suck! I go from needing 10 hours of sleep plus naps to not being able to sleep, its driving me nuts! What the what jack! I-Need-Sleep! I had this problem a while back but it thankfully went away, unfortunately it has returned. I am going to pretend I am rich and hire a personal on call massage therapist, a personal chiropractor, an acupuncturist, and a personal pharmacist. Or I'll just talk to the doc about a sleep aid! ;-)
