Positives: I can take longer very hot showers with less herxing & getting sick, less Bart rashes, & not fainting (or coming close).
Yesterday we had a neighborhood pool party & I am so so sooooo happy I felt good for it. God has impeccable timing. Considering Friday was a complete nightmare, and Saturday was barely better, I thought for sure I would be in bed Sunday too. But much to my surprise I felt wonderful. That is, until about 11pm when everything took a 180. Migraine, fever, chills, nausea. Full fledge herx. But that's what I get for pushing myself during treatment. I have to be extra careful now & remember my body is in constant fight mode, so not letting myself rest could result in a struggle. Regardless, it was worth it to socialize & enjoy everyone's company. It's nice to just get out of my head for a little while.
I haven't had a chance lately to say thank you to everyone who supports me with kind words & prayers. But even though I don't always say it, I do always feel it. I've always been a firm believer in the power of prayer. And even just having someone tell me "I believe in you, you can do this," is an amazing feeling. It helps me when I get wore out emotionally to remember "you know what, they are right I DO have this." So thank you to everyone.
Dose 9 tomorrow... Then 1 more left after that. Can not wait
