Treatment Update – Weeks 21 & 22

Hello!

So I’m back with another treatment vlog! I haven’t been that busy these past two weeks, but the things I have been doing have taken a lot out of me.

It started off with me publishing a blog post all about my next stage of treatment, IV antibiotics!  The rest of the fortnight has been spent preparing for that, starting a new medication and having the flu jab, which always makes me feel extra ill, although it wasn’t as bad as last year which is good.

Treatment Update – Weeks 17 & 18

Hello there,

These last two weeks have felt pretty hectic. I started a new antibiotic, and although the side effects aren’t quite as bad as the last one, they’re still not pleasant.  Plus I had to deal with the first wave if herx’s, which involved a lot of very bad headaches, and feeling so exhausted I can’t do anything.

I also had 2 medical appointments; the first one was at the diabetes clinic that was very overwhelming and kind of scared me senseless, and the second at the hospital to have an ultrasound on my shoulder which although it was quick and painless, really took a lot out of me.

Treatment Update – Weeks 15 & 16

Hello there,

These last two weeks had a pretty bad start, I was forced to change my Breakspear travel plans because of a really bad herx, which was really frustrating. It was my 3 month follow up, which I’ve already written a post on, so I won’t go on about it.

Treatment Update – Weeks 13 & 14

Hello there,

These last two weeks seemed to have lasted much longer than just fourteen days. I didn’t think it had been that busy, but when I was watching back my video, to remember all the things I’d done to write this post, it turned out I was wrong.

Treatment Update – Weeks 11 & 12

Hello there,

Thankfully the last fortnight has been easier than the previous one. Physically I’ve mainly been really tired, with a few headaches thrown in there just to keep me on my toes! haha.

I had a couple of trips out of the house; one to the dentist, which obviously wasn’t enjoyable, but I survived, and one to some woods nearby where we live. Me my mum and my sister had a lovely walk (well sort of, I was in a wheelchair), it was amazing to get out of the house for something non-medical related, I honestly can’t remember the last time I did that.

Treatment Update – Weeks 9 & 10

Hello there,

Wow, these last two weeks have been difficult. Very difficult. Possible the worst ones yet, but I survived and I’m out the other side! For which I’m very glad.

Treatment Update – Weeks 7 & 8

Hello there,

Here we are again, and weeks seven and eight are over. Everything seems to be going much quicker now.

This post is actually a couple of days late going up. I’m in the middle, of what I presume is a herx, and it’s pretty unpleasant. However, the majority of these two weeks have actually been pretty good, of course that’s “good” in quotation marks, because of course it’s relative to how I was feeling before, but I still really enjoyed it whilst it lasted.
