A Forced Break

Maybe a herx?


Today has been a tough one symptom-wise. Since we are on break, the last few weeks have been pretty sweet. I can rest when I need to so this helps immensely. But today. Oiy.

I’ve had overall soreness since I awoke at 5 a.m. My lower back, hips, right knee, and ankles have been aching. I canceled an appointment today because, well, yeah, I wasn’t making it. The bed has been my constant companion today along with 2 heating pads and some medication. Oh and some loyal puppies. Maybe I’m herxing. Its been a week or so since I’ve had one. IDK.

Boo aka Bipity Bobity Boo Boo!

But tomorrow is a new day. The quote above just spoke to me in all the right ways. I hope all is golden in your neck of the woods. Peace, friends -B

    1. Thanks, Hugh. I appreciate it. The past 2 weeks haven’t been too bad at all! But I think that since I’ve been on break, I am actually sticking to my treatment protocol more consistently and so I am having die off of the bacteria. Which is good, but it can cause many side effects.


  1. Hoping future days will be better. Having chronic back pain and arthritis I empathize with your condition. Unfortunately I still must work so no matter how painful or swollen my joints I embrace the pain and move forward. Rent must be paid and food must be purchased.

    1. I hope for pain free days for you as well! I also must keep working. We gotta eat! I think working is good mentally for me, I just wish I didn’t get so fatigued after a regular day. Have a wonderful Sunday, my friend.
