Default Starting a new treatment

I'm starting a new treatment today. For anyone who doesn't know... I have Chronic Lyme Disease and multiple tick borne co-infections.

I already feel really cruddy. Waking up early to get Gus to the vet twice this week has taken a big toll on me. He's totally worth it...always worth it

The first day or two is usually okay, then the herx (die-off) hits and it's horrible. So I might not be on as much.... or not posting as much. I'll probably be here... the photos cheer me up

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas

Grace (Dec. 4, 2011) & Gus (Dec.15, 2009)

Hopefully this new treatment helps a lot!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

Tori, we will be thinking of you, even in your absence. Lyme disease & other tick-borne diseases are cruddy, really cruddy, and they can be so tenacious.
Sending you warmest wishes for a lovely Christmas season! Wishing you healing for the New Year!
