Extension blood draw rescheduled!

So I'm literally 5 minutes from leaving the house when I get a call from Opexa. I about shit. Anyway, they had been contacted by my donation center and they had screwed up the transport stuff for the exta test tubes they have to take besides the bag. Well they got a hold of me just in time.

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 ...
