Too much?

As you know, I have been fatigued from treating with the blood. It's not tiredness like from lack of sleep, it's different. It's more like a lack of motivation to get out of the chair. That is a far cry from where I was when I was sick when I couldn't even hold my head up, much less get out of the chair without substantial effort .... now I CAN get out of the chair, I just am not motivated enough to.

I have been keeping up with working out - 30 min. cardio and 30 min. weights and stretching. I have been cooking, cleaning, etc. .... all the things that moms do ... driving .....

But this fatigue permeates everything. I'd rather just sit around. That is so unlike the real me!

So I was talking to a well-informed fellow-Lymie-who-went-to-Germany yesterday. When I told him I was treating with blood, he said, "Only once per week, right?" I said, "Uh, no, twice per week, like the Lyme treatment we did in Germany." He said, "Nope, you're only supposed to treat with blood once per week."

I've treated five times with blood ... first one at 25%, the other four at 100% ....

Now I will take a week and a half break from photons, except for the photons I will be absorbing out in Las Vegas next week with my daughter .... it's supposed to be in the 80's.

Hopefully, this rest in the middle of treatment will help me catch up with myself. I'm running a race, and instead of taking days of rest, I'm running full force day after day. As the dear doctor in Germany says, this is a marathon, you don't run marathon races every day, you rest ... well, that's sort of what he said .... you get the idea. So, I'll be resting out by the pool beginning on Sunday. :-D

Hi Six,

You have just described the type of fatigue that I have been having for the past 6+ years! It's the lack of motivation to do anything... even getting up to do the dishes feels like a huge task for me. I can't wait to shake it off!

Take care and thank you for your comments on my blog. Now I'll just have to train my patience with a longer treatment because I don't have the live vials here.

i don't know about treating with blood more than once per week is bad...
i was treated with blood and nosodes for 5 treatments in a row while in germany.

the doc told me that at home, if i need to treat for bb again, which i unfortunately do, 50% power (i have no infusion to follow), and use nosodes plus blood.

Hi Sixgoofy

thanks for replying to my other post. I was just wondering how you treat with blood, do you literally put a spot of blood in a vial and use it in the same way as the others by selotaping it to your abdomen? Also when you mention 50% or 100% power, do you mean half the time (2.5 mins)?
