Hey guys. I've been busy dealing with some health issues plus my other phone decided to **** out on me so I couldn't visit chat. I gotr another phone but it does not let me access chat. I'm debating on whether to get another android so I can chat or not. Ill decide next month.

 

Basically I may possibly have lyme disease. Crazy huh? Especially since it is not that common here in southeast US and I don't go in the woods at all. Haven't been in woods since I was a kid! Really stange, I tell ya.

 

I go to infectious disease specialist next month to hopefully find out if I do have it. My lyme titer was positive but antibodies were negative. I will get repeat test next month. WBC s have also been elevated for at least five months now so something is obviously going on, we just don't know what. I'm not anemic right now so that's a plus. They think it some kind of infection going on.

 

I will keep you guys updated on everything and will try to drop by and post from time to time.

 

I will talk to you guys soon!

I'm in South Carolina, ticks were bad this year down here. Got hit several times, one turned into a Staph infection almost over night. Got a big scar there now. Was treated for Lyme with Docy

the ticks are spreading.

 

Just like the killer bees... The Asian carp... the pythons...

 

Mother Nature's revenge for humans trying to over-rule her.

 

I still remember those butter commercials when I was quite small "Don't Mess with Mother Nature!" & all the thunder & lightning on those t.v. ad's.... scared the begeebees out of me. :D I didn't realize then how apt it is to be cautious of natures wonders.

After going round and round with the pharmacy over the delivery of my strip script I was boiling mad. I got it straight now. I'm gewtting it filled at CVS again not the other pharmacy. I went real hypo. 35. Threw me for a loop. Haven't been that low in months, except for during Issac when I dropped to twenty. That pharmacy had me so pissed. I'm not going to get any more scripts there!

 

Wow mcs. A staph infection. That's scary.

Not really in focus but you get the idea, this was a week old. I was on vacation when I found the tick on a Monday. This is what it looked like right before I went to the med center for AB and Doxy. Pretty neat how the infection just eats away at your skin in trailers.

Well it was good while it lasted. The symptom free days, I mean. The nausea started back up this agternoon as well as the facial flushing. I was starting to think I could cancel next months appointment. No such luck...

Diabetics should consider Sovereign Silver for infections and viruses. I've cured one person with hepatitis and one with Lupus (epstien Barr). It is 100% harmless and approved 4tsp a day for 70 years. The prescribed amount for the two was one dropper under the tongue every hour until 16oz. have been used. About 20 to 23 days. Saturate the blood and body as it leaves the system every 8 hours.

Hey guys. Just a quick update.

 

I had labs done Friday for lyme and blood count. The specialist will schedule a follow up visit when results come in to discuss then.

 

I also had an extensive workup for Neuroendocrine tumor. I should get a call Monday with those results...

 

Also, I'm moving next month sometime. There's several issues with the place i live at currently...plumbing issues among those. I told my landlord already and have people lined up to help me move. I'm excited about that.

 

So, please send me good vibes that this will work out. Especially the moving situation. I want that more than anything.

 

I'll update you guys when i know more.

I got phone call regarding results...

 

My prolactin, ghrelin and c peptide were elevated. All others normal. I get repeat labs Monday and find out results in two weeks.

 

She said it may be of pancreatic origin like a possible tumor or just pre causing the elevations. I think she mentioned possibly adrenal causes.

 

Told me to follow up with my endocrinologist depending on the results of repeat labs.

 

That's what i know now and will keep you guys updated.

Hey SweetBlood, I think there's more to Type 1.5 than a Type 1 as Type 1 is Juvenile onset as Type 1.5 is Adult onset. With yours Sweet you have another autoimmune on top of this one. I hope it is not as taxing as Diabetes already is.

 

As with Chat, I would wait as Chat is dependent on Java and the digital world is stepping away from Java. So in the mean time, Save those greenback dollars and look at what Tony do with chat or what Java will be up to.

Could be another thread, What to do with Java???

I moved last Friday. I also got sick that night too. Sinus infection. I still feel like junk. I did get some antibiotics which I started Wednesday. My sugar hasbeen running higher and my appetite has been crappy.

 

Other than that I'm enjoying having my own place and am settling in nicely.

 

I have ultrasound set up for Tuesday and go to the hematologist week after next.

 

I'll keep you guys updated. Later.
