Feb. 15 we load up and car and drive to Florida for me to do a fecal transplant in Tampa.

I don't know if I can make it another two weeks with few safe foods left, only sleeping much every other night, frequent Lyme outbreaks, and headaches, headaches everywhere, my universal syptom.

I spend 6 hours a day doing energetic allergy clearing so my screwed up digestion can absorb high priority supps, esp. antioxidants and detox agents.

My mental attitude is determined by how much I'm hurting at that moment. If the pain is bad, nothing seems possible. If the pain is low, lots of things seem possible.

Became allergic to probiotics keeping candida, and by extention, Lyme under control, as those two infections are linked for me. Having to start Diflucan earlier than doctor told me to before transplant to keep things from spinning out of control.

My local holistic doc is convinced the transplant will stabilize my gut flora and make things at least 50% better. I'm betting my life on that belief.

Need some functional days between now and then to do some things to get ready for the trip. On the 14th, get up in the middle of the night to do first half of allergy clearings for the day, then take a couple of hours to pack all the stuff, including my rife machine and air cleaner, that I need to get through an ordinary day. Then we make the 11 hours drive over two days, with me having to set up my supps, cooking, various machines, etc. up for a week at the second hotel we stay at near the transplant doc.

Hope is a necessity, and I have it, but also have abundant despair at what I'm going to have to go through to continue living like this and make the transplant happen, as well as fear that things will spin further out of control and we won't be able to make the trip.

Despair and fear. A lymies closest and often only friends. At least I have a partner.
