I have been so deeply touched over the past few weeks by the many private messages I’ve been getting checking in on me and asking how I’m feeling. I’m convinced I have the best blog readers around!
Sorry, I’ve been kind of quiet on my blog lately. Summer is almost at an end and for a Lymie I’ve been pretty busy.
This is the time of year I’m focused on getting ready for the fall, fitting in last minute doctors appointments and check-ups, purchasing the children’s fall clothes and finalizing our plans for the upcoming homeschool year.
Besides trying to keep up with the best of them, the past few months have been kind of hard on me. I’ve been having pain off and on so everything I’ve needed to do seems to take twice as long. I don’t know why I’ve been having this cyclical pain but some days it’s pretty hard.
I had been reading a lot about Turmeric and how it’s really great for inflammation and pain management. Some articles even tout that it’s safer and more effective than Ibuprofen. So, I did some research and found a brand that I wanted to try.
I’m actually really impressed with how quickly it worked. In just a few days my knee pain went away. My husband started taking it for sinus inflammation and said it was helping him.
I’m having other aches and pains too and some difficulty walking again but really only in the mornings or after sitting for awhile.
My kids are doing well. I noticed when my son, Little Man, has a flare of pain in his legs, he also gets very angry about things that usually don’t bother him.
Lyme and co-infections can cause rage, anger, moodiness, and many other emotional and psychological symptoms. In children that may be the first sign you see.
My baby girl, Princess, has been doing pretty good but sometimes she gets so busy with activities she forgets her homeopathic remedies. This is a really bad thing for her because her symptoms come back. So, as busy as I am, I still have to remind her.
Miss Sunshine, my 2nd born daughter, just turned 18 and has been working hard at her physical fitness training.
She had once been so incredibly sick with tick-borne diseases that she couldn’t even lift her head from her pillow for weeks at a time.
I had all but forgotten those terrible days until this weekend. On Friday she had all 4 impacted wisdom teeth removed. Seeing her sleep and in pain reminded me of those difficult days.
My eldest daughter, Graceful, has been doing really well. During my last update I promised to tell you about something new we are doing for her, if it was helpful. Well, it has been so, let me tell you about it. It’s been over a month now and she’s consistently felt well.
At the insistence of a very good friend, we started her on Plexus Slim, ProBio 5 and Bio Cleanse. My friend kept telling me how much these products were helping her.
Honestly, I wasn’t impressed with the ingredients and I was honest with her about it but continued to listen to her experience with them.
I even talked to her up line and I called James Easling who is Shoshanna’s husband. She runs the Bulk Herb Store and she and her son both got tick-borne diseases and are seeing great results with Plexus.
My friend finally had enough of me saying “No” while my daughter was so weak and wasn’t getting out of bed. She handed me a starter kit and said “I insist you try this for her!” So I did!
I went home that day and got my daughter started on the Slim right away. Within a few hours she was up laughing and spending time with us. My jaw dropped when she ran down the stairs to go grab a movie and then ran, not walked, back up the stairs.
Ok, well, I thought it might’ve just been a burst of energy from taking this stuff. Over the course of days, weeks and now months, she has consistently been able to maintain her blood sugar and energy levels. She’s eating better too. She still complains of pain but at least she’s up out of bed. Twenty year olds should not be stuck in bed.

My husband has been doing well but decided on his own that he should do a detox and cleanse. More power to him! I know cleanses are really good for you but my gut is so sensitive after years of medication that the thought of a cleanse sends me running the other way.
I do try to detox but I use more gentle methods likes epsom salt baths, essential oils and herbs.
I may address this area of my health in the future but this busy time of year wouldn’t work for me.
I’m still working on my post about Bartonella and I have some other changes coming up too.
I hope you’re doing well and enjoying the last bit of your summer. If you’ve tried any new products or found something that is working well for you, I’d love to hear about them.
