Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

That's pretty much what I am feeling a bit more lately. Yours gets worse when the treatment is working?

Sherry

Actually, mine were worse before treatment. I got bad sweats again on my flare up/herx cycle. Then they got steadily better.

Sherry, Adam and I were talking and wondered something (this is off the wall, LOL), in Chinese, they write so differently ..... are the numbers the same as ours, or do they write the numbers differently as well? If they're different, how do they do math?

Yes, I want to see a picture of a chinese computer keyboard, with an explanation of how they use it.

Added: Please. (we do not have any word for please in our language, only something analogous to be so kind that can be used. So we just forget to type please in English...)

They write numbers differently than ours. :) I think they use the same addition signs, etc. but just different numbers...is that right Sherry?

Were is everyone? Are we feeling worse or are we all feeling better lol?

Everyone,.

I always knew i was stubborn, but im thinking im even more stubborn lately. How many times is it going to take me to figure out my body hates mold? How many times will i smoke, until i feel so sick to my stomach? How many times will i eat things i should not eat? Will this ever stick in my mind lol.

Hubby and I are thinking of getting the mercoal tanning bed since we have so many months of winter in this part of the world lol

Paula, why don't you just quit smoking, it's cheaper than the tanning bed? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Or quit smoking so you have the $$$ for the tanning bed!

I'm feeling GREAT! I'm off meds, on Buhner herbs (and some Cowden), plus Malarone and Lariam for babs. Feeling the best I've felt in years.

Last time I was off meds, I still had morning fatigue, not this time. :) I wake up abut 7:30 since starting Lyrica (yes, Donna and Rachel, that is early for normal people :lol: ).

Carla,

WooHoo, Yay and everything else. :D :D :D Glad you are feeling so good.

Paula,

Hang in there. Quitting smoking is not easy but it is definately doable. One day at a time. I've heard it takes 3 months for the toxins to leave your body. The first month is the hardest. You need to find something to do when you get a craving to light up. Walking, excercise.....whatever. My parents stopped and started quite a few times before they stopped for good......that was due to my dad having a dark spot on his lung. He had been broadsided and had to spend a day in the hospital so that's the reason they knew.

Definately incentive to use the cig money to save for the tanning bed. :)

Ok, everyone. I've been thinking over a plan of attack since I have my Sulfa LED coming up on Monday. Love to hear what y'all think of it. :D

1) Have Sulfa LED.

2) A week later have peptide shot.

3) Two weeks to a month after LED see if I need another one, if not then re-do DMPS IV push and urine collection. If necessary pursue chelation.

4) While waiting on chelation start balancing the immune system with Pine Cone Extract and Transfer Factor. Build up vitamin and mineral reserves in the body.

5) While balancing the immune system have peptide shots to help desensitize the body to allergens.

6) Once the immune system is fairly balanced start BioSet treatments to desensitize anything I'm still allergic to.

7) Go on to live normal life remaining vigilent about Lyme, parasites, continuing to detox, rest, and get adequite nutrition.

Kinda idealized. :P

Hmm. I better mention this to my LLMD on Monday. I now have an appointment due to the Vit D questions.

Chinese use both. I'll insert the Chinese numbers and see if they'll show up 一 二 三 四 五 六 , that's 1 to 6. For math they use arabic numbers usually.

Ha ha, their keyboards look just like ours! Well, the Taiwanese have keyboards with alphanumeric symbols plus some phonetic symbols that they use. But the mainland uses a romanized system to identify the pronounciation of characters. There are a number of input methods available for the computer; I use the easiest which just uses the same keyboard as I use for English. I just spell out the sound of the character, like "bei jing" for Beijing, and then choose the characters 北京。 I type Chinese to my students.

Now what was amazing was before PC's, if you wanted something typed you took it to a typing shop. They had these "typewriters" that had trays and trays of little blocks with characters. They directed the arm to pick up the appropriate character and go type it on the paper, then went back and picked up the next one, changing the big trays as they needed. Very slow.

About the chinese typewriters, a freind lived in Hong Kong in the 70's, and he told me about them afterwards. There was this big tray of characters.

But teh funny thing was that one could not see the typing, as one had to have two sheets of paper with a carbon paper in between and you could first see the typing on the second sheet.

I met a chinese girl in 2000 who I asked a little bit, and she told me children learn to write phonetic in our letters and they write the four different intonations above the word, as the words mean four different things acccording to if you raise your tone, keep the tone level, etc. I think other chinese languages even have eight different sounds. They can write to each other but not speak--if they use the symbols if they have different dialects or languages.

I always wanted to know what a japanese computer looks like. I have seen some pictures on the internet. they use three different kanji, and they use chinese signs. Learning japanese is supposed to be not so hard. Chinese is a hard to learn for the foreigners she met, the chinese girl said (she came from a place with lots of europeans working there).

Now this was off topic.

More on something chinese:

My daughter (DD2)told me about a chinese cleansing remedy that is very expensive and a new fad on the internet, a parasitic mold from china called something like something-sinensis. I told her to up the vitamin D first as it is needed to make glutathione which is needed for detoxification, and about chlorella and zeolite. She got teh vitamin D results and they are 42 nanomol per liter, which is low, it is about half the number in nanograms per ml, something like 25. This is aafter taking some vitamin D for a while, like 400 units. She said she is gonna double her intake , but I sent her a txt msg that she needs 50

I'm actually feeling pretty good too. I've been sleeping better and don't seem to be reacting to stuff that a few months ago would have caused reactions. I'm beginning to wonder if my house is really the problem. If it weren't for my stupid lame foot, I'd be painting and doing stuff I haven't done in a long time.

What you wrote about why...I feel the same things. I've been trying to start an anti-candida diet for two years!

(yes, Donna and Rachel, that is early for normal people :lol: ).

You can't convince me! :lol: I'm at home, on leave for 5 weeks already, and I'm waking up at around 5:40. Course, I've never claimed to be normal. :lol:

Kinda idealized. :P

Hey, at least it's a plan!!! Better than not having one. I'm not familiar with LED either, so can't comment on that...I just think it's a good plan to have a plan, lol.

YAY! I hope so, too. My step-father had a pin put in his ear (acupuncture) and it helped him quit. He never could quit before that.

Carla,

WooHoo, Yay and everything else. :D :D :D Glad you are feeling so good.

Thanks.

4) While waiting on chelation start balancing the immune system with Pine Cone Extract and Transfer Factor. Build up vitamin and mineral reserves in the body.

I couldn't handle Transfer Factor. If you try both of those, try them apart from each other. Transfer Factor is bad for those with autoimmune conditions because if you tend towards autoimmune you don't want to further stimulate the immune system.

Dr. H said Dr. C taught him LED. I said, GREAT, will you use it on me? He said he had only used it a few times, next time I come up I can have it done. :)

Cool. Thanks. The 1, 2, 3 makes a lot of sense, LOL.

Yeah, I'm in that not normal category, too, but at least I don't think 5:40 is sleeping in!!! :lol:

I think when i start smoking my bucket is a little from the top, but the more i smoke the more it flows over lol. I know its from the mold in the cigarettes that puchme over the edge. So im going to do this, i swear i am. If i do get cranky in here, just ignore me lol.

Carla,

Do you think u feel better cause the of the motorcycle ride, or from going off some of the stuff.

About sleeping in, i think 6 am is sleeping in. I love mornings before the kids get up. Now with school starting in a few days, I will be lucky to sleep in til 5 lol

I'm curious if it has to do with Vitamin D from the summer sun, given that you previously were so deficient and haven't been supplementing.

I'd follow through on that and make sure you keep that level up, as it impacts the immune system. I think it helps regulate autoimmune too.

I took TF but what you say makes sense; I quit last winter when it didn't test well on ART.

Yep, Chinese is pictographal; so the numbers reflect the number of strokes in 1-5. The original writing was even more close to the object, but has been stylized over the years so you often now have to have it explained to understand the picture.

Then from there, abstract ideas are built different ways. It is quite fascinating actually.

Yes, although in Taiwan they use phonetic symbols rather than romanized like mainland China. They can write to each other but only using characters, not the phonetics. All the dialects can read the characters, but each dialect would have different phonetics. Mandarin has four tones plus a neutral, Taiwanese has 8, Cantonese has 10. Not sure about the other dialects, I forget. I speak Mandarin (and read/write).

Learning japanese is supposed to be not so hard.
I've heard that because the written language has more phonetics, just some Chinese characters. Same for Korean. Chinese is very difficult. For westerners, it is the tonal language, plus the characters that must be simply memorized. Both reading and writing is very hard. For other Asians, many already know some Chinese characters so that part is much easier for them, but pronounciation can be very challenging. I was in university in China with some Japanese and Korean students and could hardly understand any of their Mandarin.

Mandarin was WAY easier than Spanish for me. I was able to memorize Mandarin characters faster than spanish anything, lol. :lol: I was fluent in Mandarin in only 6 months...could read, write and speak it. Now I don't remember almost any of it. Except I somehow remembered 1-10 today in bed, LOL! :)

Re-learning Mandarin is on my list of things to do...soon. I LOVED it! :D
