DAY 53 of Treatment, sort of

Hello People,

If you have been following me, then I am sure you know by now that the start to my treatment has been one bumpy ass road.  It was derailed initially by excruciating stomach pain, followed by test results showing that I had some serious stomach bacteria lurking in my body.

This bacteria could have been causing malabsorption of anything and everything that I have been putting in my body (I kinda wish I took advantage and ate some junk haha), not to mention a ton of other crappy symptoms.  On top of the Lyme and Co-Infections. FUN TIMES…NOT!

Anyways, I have officially finished my 7 days of the super strong antibiotic duo as of yesterday.

Today I gradually get back to my Lyme treatment.  I just popped my first dose of Nystatin, Doxycycline, and Azithromycin.  The headache and the nausea are creeping up on me a little bit, but (fingers crossed) things seem to be going ok…

I still feel like a piece of crap.  Same symptoms as per usual.  Headache exhaustion, nausea, body aches etc etc etc.  Recently I have been having nightmares every night and have this unjustified feeling of fear before falling asleep.  Weird.

Anyways…back on track…although I guess I never really was off track…just took  a wrong turn.

OH, one more thing.  We finally finally were able to get our brand spankin new big leather baby into the condo!!!  With the power of three strong men (one being my boyfriend) and a lot of sweat, these guys lugged it through the stairwell.


I am SOOOOOO happy.  This thing is amazing.  It is huge and super comfy.  I can’t wait to curl up with my baby over the long weekend 🙂 🙂 🙂

(And please don’t look at the cluttery mess in the background..haha)

Lavender Rose Lemonade

This link for Lavender Lemonade was shared with me by Danielle.  This is supposed to aid in headache relief as well as anxiety.

I decided to put my own little spin on it and add some rose buds as well, which made it pink rather than purple, but still pretty, tart and delightful to the senses.

Ingredients I used:

6 c water

4-5 tbsp powdered stevia (or 1 c honey)

1 tbsp dried culinary lavender

1 tbsp dried culinary rosebuds

6 lemons, juiced

My Little Helper 🙂

1. Bring 3 cups of water to a boil.  Remove from heat.

2. Add lavender, rose buds, and stevia or honey.  Allow to steep, covered for about 20 minutes.

3.  Strain the liquid into a jug and add the lemon juice and additional 3 cups of water.

4. Allow to cool completely in fridge.  And enjoy cold.

Note:  you can add more stevia or honey to taste once chilled.

I was disappointed at first because there was not much colour. BUT wait till you add the lemons!!! It brightens everything up!

Next time I will try with only lavender just to see the pretty colour!

I am enjoying my first glass… We will see if it helps the headache! If not, I would make it again just for the taste.

Thanks for sharing Danielle!
