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

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!
big hug, sandi, kitzi & lisi
