Things improving...

13 days into treatment...

The Super Foods or as I like to call it, green slime has helped fix a major problem. It's not something I like to talk about... but I want to say that thanks to this disgusting stuff that is thick and sandy I am shall we say, regular, for the first time ever. Without pain when nature calls. May seem like a simple problem, but trust me it has plagued me for my whole life.

I still have lots of pain in my spine and head, in the right-side where the shingles had the outbreak, and have pins and needles as well. My left leg and hip hurt too, but in a different way. I'm supposed to start the second anti-viral med soon and I'm hoping since it's supposed to deal with the inflammation-causing virus, I'm hoping it will deal with more of the pain.

I can also tell a difference with my focus and thought process. I still struggle with memory, but my focus is sharper and I can stay on task a bit better.

I'm trying to cut down on my anxiety medicine, but I'm not happy with the results. I am having more stress attacks, but once my system levels out I hope to see improvement here as well. I'm supposed to see my primary on the 30th so we'll talk about these things then.

I did a technical presentation on Viral Neuropathy for Toastmasters and it went very well. With power point and everything! It was cathartic to talk about it to my friends.
