Alisa Turner - Breathing

This is a beautiful song. I can totally relate to some of what she is singing. Here is what she wrote about it-
I wrote it in my most desperate moment looking for relief from the pain. I didn't want to die but I didn't want to go on living like this. I held onto hope that God was listening, and that he somehow was going to make tomorrow better. So, I knew I had to keep myself breathing to stay alive, and the only way I could do that is keep myself singing. So I wrote a song.

Another Lymie received her angel wings

Sad news was delivered to the Lyme community last night, yet another lymie has lost her fight with Lyme Disease. It's not fair she had to loose her life! If doctors would treat you right away the chances of this go way down. It's upsetting and hit's a little to close to home for comfort. Click HERE to read what a fellow blogger wrote on her blog about it.

Understanding what Lyme does to a person

It's hard for people to totally understand what goes on in our bodies and how we feel. A fellow Lyme blogger did a great explanation. Click HERE to read it.

New Anti-Candida Protocol and Major Herx

I have been meaning to start my new Anti-Candida Protocol my doc wanted me on for a couple weeks now. I get tired of starting something new every couple of months and have been feeling so awesome I was scared to herx again trying something new. I started it this morning and boy was I right! I was leery for good reason!!! Good lord, I haven't herxed this badly in a long, long time. I am in a ton of pain, my stomach feels like a giant is squeezing it to death, I feel really sick to my stomach and SO HOT!!!!! Major hot flashes!!! I took my temp just to see and of course it's normal. Didn't take long before I was in one of my stand by tank tops! I have to pace because it hurts so bad. I am not a fan of this new protocol at all!! It must mean it's working though so that's good. This whole time I have been battling really bad yeast over growth. Right now my arm pits are really raw because they itch so bad and there is so much yeast in my body. Let's hope this does the trick and fast!!!! Here are a couple pictures I took this morning of my lovely mixture I have to drink. It's 8oz total that I have to down a 1/2hr before I eat breakfast.

I am finally making some great progress! After 10 months of treatment I feel like I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and making some great milestones!! I have gradually been getting better but lately I feel different, much better that previously! I am SO happy to finally feel better on a daily basis and can have a little bit more of a social life and get out of the house more! I am so excited and very relieved to feel this and so happy that my old life is slowly but surely coming back!!!

Also on a good note, my friends and family put on a benefit for us. It turned out awesome!!! There was a spaghetti dinner, silent auction, live auction, bake sale, sweet martha's cookies, cotton candy, a cake walk, an information booth, and a DJ. Over 300 people came and we made our goal! I am so very grateful for all of the wonderful people in my life. It has made a huge difference in our lives and I can now continue treatment with out having to worry if we can pay all the bills each month! Good news all around!!!!
