I hadn’t planned to post again until events warranted it, but since things are changing rapidly, here goes.
Today, like yesterday, I woke up feeling fairly good and as the afternoon approached had another reaction. It was a bit more muted this time, eventually coming on strong, then suddenly it would reverse and I would feel incredibly good. This push and pull continued for a while: body and mind, oscillating between harmony and dischord. Sleepy and relaxed, breathing freely, then I’d get hit with a stuffy nose and general unease.
At times the troughs were bad enough I decided to take more vitamin C, but there was no need for predinsone today, and for that I’m very thankful. My gut has been feeling really good most of the time, too, so if all goes according to plan, I hope to ditch the pills and lean on the worms, from here on out.
So what’s happening, why the back and forth? All I can think is the helminths are training my immune system to not harm them, by reacting when I react, and sending out the good vibes to calm everything down. It may sound a bit strange, but I’m really enjoying this process.
In moments I get glimpses of how I felt during the initial 5 day “bounce”, so maybe, just maybe, I can recapture that as my longer term benefit. Fingers crossed.
