Omg you’ve been missed!!! (Probably not what you want to hear, right? 😜👍). My sister has had a rough go of it the last couple of weeks, but now she’s finally on the mend…
My dizzyiness/balance/weakness got super super bad, but my CT looks good so we can (happily!) take brain mets off the table.
(That should give you an idea of the severity of my symptoms —that I was thinking brain mets 😢—)
Dr. Chow — thought infectious disease problem
Dr. Pit — thought neurological problem
Dr. Cohen — thought MS.
Hmmm…been awhile since I thought about that problem ⏰.
(I saw Dr. Cohen and steamrolled him when I was waiting to see Dr. Chow, since they share the same office space. I love Dr. Cohen so much, he’s such a kind person and a smart mind— I wish I could still afford Dr. Cohen—he knows my case so well—it was one of my promises to Joe though, to cut down on cash doctors unless it’s absolutely urgent—maybe one day I’ll win the lotto 🙏
I actually think my symptoms might actually be seizures from the Meropenam. It’s a rare side effect of Meropenam, Dr. Pit once mentioned it a long time ago and I remembered yesterday—
So I spoke with Dr. Chow this morning, and Dr. Chow ordered the EEG for me “of course”, which was very nice. He reiterated my CT Scan was normal, but a long time ago Dr. Cohen told me that lesions from MS doesn’t always show up in scans right away…it’s always a clinical diagnosis first…
In the meantime, until we figure this all out: I started an **intensive** anticancer diet, supplements, food, everything, absolutely NO smoking (using nicorette candies when super desperate, which I’ve only done it twice but they work great),
and I stopped the Meropenam — in case the Meropenam is causing my problems —
(Doing the doxycycline and Flagyl instead.)
Today I’m feeling a little bit better…it could be from quitting smoking, or the diet or the crazy supplements (have you heard of Graviola pills? It’s my new favorite herb 🤪👍.)
Supplements I’ve started:
* Graviola Pills
* Mushroom Extract
* Cranberry Extract
* Cod Liver Oil
(I’m pacing them throughout the day, so I don’t take them all at once.)
Then I’m drinking smoothies twice a day with Greek yogurt, flax seed and flax seed oil mixed together, and I’m throwing in ***a lot** of raw honey with a little Acai powder —
(Raw honey is my new favorite super food—the more I read about honey, the more amazing I am with honey’s healing powers—)
I hope you have a safe trip home from Israel 🙏👍. I’ve been hanging in there best I can without you. See you soon—
