So many people have come to my assistance in such a short time, it fills my heart. From the RoadBack Foundation bulletin board I have received letters and messages from at least six women who have been in my exact situation and recovered at least partially, and all of them are so encouraging.
My naturopath has risen to the fore and he was the first person to think to check my mycoplasma levels.
The wonderful woman at Scripps connected me to her equally caring esophageal doctor specialist in Davis, CA... both of them have done everything in their power to get me the best treatment as quickly as possible.
My family has called and written from all over the world to offer support.
My husband has been trying hard to get his head around what is happening and he made me a very thoughtful blended dinner last night, and spent a long time researching rheumatic disease.
My younger son tells me about every five minutes, "Mommy, I love you."
And I have begun a new regimen of Vitamin D3, fish oils, Moducare, aloe vera juice and hopefully a lot less stress. Going to get tested for Lyme Disease exposure, and really looking forward to finally getting on the antibiotic protocol once I have been properly assessed - hopefully no later than September.
I am trying to breathe. I don't understand why I wake full of fear each morning, even though I go to sleep so peacefully. I think it must be a biochemical response to what is happening in my body.
Need to get off the computer now and give my kids 100% attention - going to make the best of every second we have together.
Thank you for reading and much love.
