Here I am, middle of week 3, and (aside from the initial bounce) I’m finally feeling some symptoms that appear to be helminth related: gas, diarrhea, and fatigue. I’m spending a lot of time in bed lately and my mood is a bit off, too. My body feels like it’s, well — fighting a parasitic infection. That’s a good thing — indications of some new old friends.
What’s a bit harder to quantify is which symptoms belong to what type of helminth? Is this largely due to hookworm, whipworm, or both? I don’t see that it matters, ultimately, but I wish these critters could talk. Perhaps one day soon they will, in a manner of speaking. 😉
