Hello dear friends and readers. I come to you all with a heavy heart and in complete frustration. I was ‘well’ for maybe three days tops. I’ve doing all of the right things – high dosages of Vitamin C, cayenne pepper, lemon tonics, ginger, garlic, echinacea, zinc, pre/probiotics, and even Beta Glucan. Pulling out all of the known stops here. Using everything that the experts say work, everything I’ve known to work in the past, and everything I’ve researched recently. And yet, I am once again sick. I am still doing all of those things and haven’t stopped doing any of them for the past 25-35 days (as I’ve added things). And I won’t stop, even though I am so frustrated and feel like I am banging my head against a brick wall.
My symptoms returned on Monday. Fevers, chills, body aches, lethargy, upset stomach (can’t keep solids down), brain fog, light and sound sensitivity, and dizziness. I don’t even know if this is still the flu or another cold that has hit me or if it is something different altogether. I am just so tired and so weak and spending about 75% of my day in bed sleeping. When I am up, all I feel like doing is lying about and reading. It even hurts my eyes and ears to watch Netflix or something else on the computer, even at low volume and a dimmed monitor. I should probably give in and just go to the doctor, but I know antibiotics won’t help whatever this is. That’s evident since I am taking so much natural antibiotics and they aren’t helping or are helping, but slowly.
I hate feeling like an invalid. I went through this for several years when I was in Oklahoma and I don’t want to feel this way anymore. Anyway, I just wanted to update you all on my health so that you know why I am not doing much these days other than book reviews. It’s about the only energy I have… to read and then write a few quick reviews. My brain isn’t functioning too creatively right now.
Keith, just wanted to let you know that I am going to try to write a part to the Zanzibar story for Sunday. It may take me until then to get it written. I know where I want it to go, just getting there may take time.
I also want to work on Andromeda Dreaming, but I am foggy on where I am going with the story and need time to sort it all out again. I know I knew where it was going at one point, but now, I am just not sure anymore.
Prayers, healing thoughts, and healing energy are all welcomed here. Much love to all of you.
