A year on abx...

Well it's actually just over a year but anyhoo....it's been a great year, diagnosed 5 years ago, every year since then I've had at least one relapse a year and never had full recovery after but since meeting Dr Wheldon and starting the abx around late November last year I've had no relapses and better still I definitely have had some improvements.

Restless legs that kept me awake at night are no where near as ...

May I just say …

Wherever you are in the world; whether you have a religion or not; whether you "do" Christmas or not; whether you have two weeks off or two days; if you're a pagan celebrating the winter solstice, whatever, it's a magical time of year and I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and unfailing hope and optimism for the coming year.

Personal Provigil Experience

Today was my first day on provigil. I took 100mg at about 10am and another 100mg at about 12:30pm. After about 20min of taking the second dose (ie before it probably was assimilated), I actually almost had an afternoon nap! It really felt like I had taken a sugar tablet (ie no effect). A little later I went out to do the chrissy shopping.

Surprisingly, I was able to stay out walking around the shops ...

Imagine the solumedrol highs without the side effects

Ok, I must be dreaming because this n-acetyl glucosamine has got me bouncing off the walls with goodness.

This morning I had two teaspoons after last nights one teaspoon; today mixed with orange juice instead of hot tea.

The first hour after consuming this morning's, I had slight paranoia and slight anxiety (sort of like last night, but a little stronger with a higher dose). This feeling reminded me the paranoia feeling of marijuana.

BUT, ...
