Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Yeah...I wanna do this. I think they have these massages at BioSET....except I dont wanna get one from the massage guy they have there.

I'm pretty sure they also do it at HN (the clinic that I used to go to). I keep meaning to call and find out more.

I'm with you on the massage at BioSET...he is always trying to get me to do a massage, but for some reason I just don't want to there. Denise really likes them though and she gets one from him regularly I think.

I know the PT guys at HN do them when I'm sick, but what I'm not sure of is whether they would just do that by itself.

Yeah....we have a different F. Babs over here. Ours is actually F. U. Babs. :lol:

Its a different strain. :P

:lol: Yep, according to Scott I have babs, but I don't know if it's F. Babs or F.U. Babs. :lol:

I was orginally planning to go to the GIG conference and I really wanted to. But, I declined because of everything else going on-I know I need to rest. I said NO to something! Shocker!

I am proud of you! :D Rest is very important right now for all of your treatments to have the chance to work properly. Hope the IV session goes smoothly.

Is your round of testing coming up in a couple weeks?

The breath test is June 7--they didn't schedule the upper GI, which is strange, come to think of it, because as soon as I got home that day, the nurse called and said the doctor wanted to schedule the breath test for asap. :blink: I kind of thought he felt the other test was more important. Anyway, I'll ask about it on the 7th.

:I cant believe I've eliminated all this stuff and then continued using these teflon pots and pans!! :blink:

DUH!! :ph34r:

Can't think of everything :lol: The main thing is you're doing something about it now. ;)

....take away my microwave and you may as well shoot me. :rolleyes:

Ain't that the truth :ph34r: I know it's not the best thing to be using, but I just can't see me doing without it.

Donna- thank you so much for all the links! Those were VERY interesting to read. Now you, carla and rachel (and potentially andrea) have mercury problems because of your fillings?

rachel- Candida Spice I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Andrea- Bad news :( I thought my appointment was June 5th but it's June 12th. I MIGHT get my results next week, but I called yesterday to tell them I was starting to feel worse (which is true- it used to be episodic- now it's constant) and she looked and they weren't in. :(

Haven't heard from my Gi yet either. :(

OK- could I frown :( anymore? Must stop frowning!!!!!!!!!!! :P

Hi patti

Dear Patti,

It sucks you have to wait to get your results longer than you thought! :( Waiting is enough to drive anyone crazy. I had to take a promethazine just now. I have been really queasy today. It is near the end of the month. That is when my PMS used to act up. From the middle of every month until the start of my period at the end of the month, I would have to deal with it. Nausea always seemed to be a part of that.

Dear Rachel,

I should be Candida Spice! :lol: Or Lyme Spice? Or Babs Spice? There are so many possibilities. You cannot choose just one! :lol:

Sincerely,

Jin

ROTFLMAO

Candida Spice :lol::lol::lol:

Just a drive by, I'm on my way to a business course, more later.

Except for;

Salt, I buy Jevatee Himalayan Salt, it is ten dollars for 1.1 pounds. I think many Lymies doing the salt/C protocol use the Redmund salt.

My doctor believes that I have problems with mercury. Just gotta get the amalgams removed and then get money for a metal challenge test. I really, really think mercury is Talitha's problem too. I hope so anyway. I am having a very hard time dealing with her. She's so moody etc. Mitch mentioned ADHD as a possibility for her. I know she wasn't like this when she was under two though. Could be a whole bunch of things but I just wish we could swing having her tested.

Lately I've been struggling with the idea of sending her to school, but they'd eat her alive. I'll deal with whatever I have to, just going through a rough time right now. If we have to do school all year round we will. I've already stretched 1st grade to 1 1/2 years. We have next week off so that will give both of us a break. I just need to let her work at her pace and deal with it. It's hard when I'm thinking we need more structured times. She goes quickly when I leave her alone and let her take whatever breaks she needs to give her hand a break. School takes all day that way but she does get her work done.

Rachel, I know you posted something awhile back about different ways mercury affects you. I know one of the categories fit Talitha to a tee. I don't remember you linking anything with that and what you've linked that I bookmarked isn't what I'm looking for.

Sorry, I'm just having a down time right now too. :(

I hope you get your results next week, Bev. I think I'm almost as anxious as you guys for all your results. :)

Dear Rinne,

Thanks for the salt info. I needed that. I wondered if there was anything more affordable. It is so difficult to afford stuff. Unless we win the lotto soon, or business really picks up for me, nothing much is going to get going.

Sincerely,

Jin

Donna- thank you so much for all the links! Those were VERY interesting to read. Now you, carla and rachel (and potentially andrea) have mercury problems because of your fillings?

Yes, I had 11 fillings all of which had been redrilled at least once and some twice. Then I had GOLD crowns on top of 6 of those fillings! Yikes! Metals, so far have shown up on all testing...ART and BioSET except the hair analysis that was done. The hair analysis showed silver was high. I had to use the unmentionable hair though because I dye my head hair. :P Anyway, even though my hair analysis test didn't show high levels, the doctor is pretty sure I have an issue with mercury...it's just that I can't or am not excreting it now...meaning it is stuck in my tissue I guess. :(

Lately I've been struggling with the idea of sending her to school, but they'd eat her alive. I'll deal with whatever I have to, just going through a rough time right now.

Sorry Andrea! You're always there to pick us up and cheer us on. Can't think of anything to say that will help you so I'll just send hugs! {{{{HUGS}}}}

As far as hair analysis I thought that if you had low levels in your hair that you weren't excreting it. I am looking forward to your ART session in a couple weeks.

Jin,

I hear you with financial woes. We are going through them as well. Our food budget isn't even at the old level for a family a four, let alone the current level. Also we are a family of five, although two of the children could be counted as one as far as eating. :P

Sweet Andrea, always concerned about us--I'm so sorry you're having a rough day. :( You're entitled!

Do you think part of it could be her age? I know there comes a point where girls (and boys, too, but later on) go through a phase where they pull away a bit and become somewhat difficult.

Maybe for the time being, anyway, it's a good idea to let her work at her own pace--until things settle down a little.

I'm sending some calming thoughts your way :) And if you feel like venting--we're here! Let 'er rip anytime :lol:

And Bev--I hope your frown gets turned upside down, too :D

She is emotionally very immature. I think that letting her work at her own pace is best for now and she's not required to be in school until this next school term (it's 8 out here). We'll be notifying the school in August of our intent to homeschool.

She's been difficult for the last 3 years. She's very sensitive, both emotionally and physically (for lack of the proper word). She can't handle clothes that fit properly. She's gotta have things big. She wears dresses so that's not so much of a problem, but it makes me question her metals level. She also has a lot of fears. Her daddy sleeps out in the living room area as a source of comfort for her. She's finally stopped asking whether he's going to be there. She does ask what time he's getting up a lot still though.

I really need to go back :ph34r: and look for that one post of Rachel's I'm thinking of.

Dear Andrea,

Finances are a big stressor. Don't you hate it when people who have money say they know how you feel? Then in the next breath, make it sound like money grows on trees? Those people have no idea! Many people who have money say that money is not important. The thing is, that is not true.

They say money cannot buy happiness. Again, that is wrong! You are more likely to be depressed if you have poor health because you cannot afford medical care, and cannot afford food. Worrying constantly about this is a heavy burden. No one knows what this is like unless they have been here.

Sincerely,

Jin

Andrea- Big HUG!!!!!!!!!!!!! :wub: :wub: :wub:

What you said about talitha and the clothes is very interesting. My niece is the SAME way- she too is very sensitive physically and emotionally. When she was in the 2's (she's 3 1/2 now) she would have these meltdowns that were really scary....she would completely lose sight of what had made her upset in the first place and become so hysterical she would make herself sick. It's gotten better but she's the same way with clothes. Very sensitive to the way they feel on her body. It Is a symptom of ADHD but she has also been tested twice for celiac as she is VERY thin for her height and in my sis's words, a normal poop has never come out of her. I'm convinced, at the very least, she doesn't tolerate gluten and keep encouraging my sis to take her off it and see how it goes, but no luck so far.

Yeah- money :( It really irks me that health care, preventative too, is so difficult for so many people in this country. If something is wrong, it should be a HUMAN RIGHT to have it taken care of. Money doesn'y buy happiness but it can buy the basic human necessities that can help you achieve happiness like shelter, food, and health care. :angry: :angry:

Andrea, Have you heard of the term HSP (Highly Sensitive Person)? Someone posted about it on another thread and I think it's really interesting http://www.hsperson.com/

Andrea,

I was doing a little nosing around and found this--

http://www.icnr.com/uam/MercuryToxicitySymptoms.html

Don't know if it's a reputable site, but something to check out till Rachel gets back :)

Thanks Patti. I bookmarked it. :)

I did find that post of Rachel's I was thinking of. :D

Thanks Mango. :)

I did the test for her and came up with 9.

Patti......14!

Ok, so now the next question. What makes a person highly sensitive and what do you do about it?

I didn't read through the site.....more a question I don't expect anyone to answer.

Actually I scored 25! (Over 14=sensitive) :D

I wasn't surprised, though--I am very sensitive.

I think you are just born that way--that site said that something like 20% (IIRC) of people are this way, and it's not unusual.

I have a niece (my sister's daughter) who is the same way--she reminds me of myself when I was growing up.

Maybe I should start drinking Gatorade once a day or something. I sweat a lot, because my Thyroid is off.

Sweating is actually a babesia symptom.

I researched dehydration at one point because when I was pregnant with Sadie, I got very dehydrated. Instead of Gatorade, you can use 7 tsp. sugar, one tsp. salt, to a quart of water. I did that and it worked wonders. I eventually changed to just doing the salt and leaving out the sugar.

I had read before that hyperthyroids cause palpitations and rapid heartbeat. It scares you a lot. You do not have to be nervous or anything. It just goes nuts on you. I just hate having to keep flipping back and forth. You have to go get blood tests all of the time. It is so irritating. I heard Armour Thyroid balances it naturally. Do you know anything about this stuff?

Sincerely,

Jin

Jin, my doctor told me that if you are hyperthyroid, you don't want to be giving someone more thyroid hormones! But, if you are hypothyroid, Armour Thyroid is pretty good and better than the synthetic stuff.

Ultrasounds aren't the most fun procedure in the world, but I've had worse procedures! If you PM me your address, I can send you some information on how to do Mayan abdominal massage. They will help with getting more blood flow to your reproductive organs and can help keep your uterus and ovaries healthy. It doesn't cost anything! You can also do castor oil packs yourself, and you only have to pay for the castor oil. It's very healing for the abdomen, just time consuming.

I have to call today to set up an appt. with the cranio sacral lady. She is really busy though so I hope she can fit me in soon.

I make these little cookies they ahve sunflower butter in them though so I guess you can't eat them but there really easy. I cannot use stevia that stuff kills me so I use alittle agave nectar as sweetener which I am ok with.

Recipes please! I'm a fan of cranial-sacral too.

Claire- My question is WHY THE HECK DO WE KEEP LIGHTING OURSELVES ON FIRE???? :P :P

Rinne? Any answers? I'm running out of matches :P

:lol::lol::lol: I think it's more like spontaneous combustion!

Glad to know your trip was productive, I think it is great that Chloe is being tested too. More travelling? You must be doing better, I find the idea of two days away daunting, mind you I am never going where there is fabulous gluten free food. :P

You know, I wouldn't have planned it that way, but I can't change my hair appt ... she's as difficult to get an appt. with as Dr. H!! :lol: But, the lady who cuts my hair (yes I go to Bloomington still, mainly because Morgan lives there most of the year) has known me for a very long time. She said that I looked like I was feeling much better.

We ate lunch today at Cheeseburger in Paradise, so more gluten-free food!

Carla....I've read that quite a few times. Basically anyone with any co-infection (in addition to Lyme) will be worse than someone with only Lyme. The more co-infections...the worse the symptoms. I never read that its only babs that makes someone sicker...but all the co-infections can have this affect.

The more things you've got going on the sicker you're gonna be.

True, but he was specifically saying that the people with the babs were the sickest of all. It also made it the most complicated to treat.
