It's too much. I can't wrap my head around it.

I don't have enough time in the day, I don't have enough space in my pill box.

I can't figure out to take this 3 times a day, this 2-3 pills 4 times a day, this 30 min after a meal, this 2 hours after the other one, 5 drops of this 2 times a day and then raise to 10 drops 5 times a day after 2 weeks but then skip a week and don't take this one with that one on this week...

I'm going bananas. [cussing]

Don't stress it. Your body doesn't work on a set schedule.

Stress is worse than missing a dose or taking one at the wrong time.

I know i have to accept it and in many ways i have, but every so often I just get so down that I have to deal with this

Wow do I agree. I'm sure we take more supplements then we need but I try to take the ones that I feel are important.

I have a pill box that splits it into 2 times a day. I take a bunch in the evening and bunch in the morning. I do my best to keep it away from meds.

The binders are tricky because of course those can bind up everything and take it out of your system. I'm never really sure when to take those.

I keep a printed up schedule next to my supplement cabinet. It helps me a lot.

You may be taking too much, from too many different protocols.

I had to write out a schedule. I had pills I took 30 min before a meal. Pills I took during a meal. And pills I took after a meal. I kept it pretty simple even if it meant I wasn't taking them at perfect intervals.

I have a big pill case. Makes it SO EASY.

And I keep tincture and powders on the counter right above the pillbox.

It becomes a routine.

I didn't have a pill case. I didn't think I could mentally figure out how to use it, LOL!

I had trays. One tray held stuff I took with breakfast and dinner. One tray held stuff I took with lunch and at a nighttime snack. I had stuff separated on the trays by what went before a meal, etc. It was all done by placement.

I had stuff by my bed that I took in either the morning or at nighttime.

So, if you came into my house and moved my pill jars, I would have been all messed up. When I was too sick to go get my pills, I could just tell the kids which tray to bring me.

It does become routine.

Is it ok to keeps capsules in the refrigerator? Also, that's where I keep my tinctures. Should they be kept at room temperature?

That's where I have been keeping mine but recently I've wondered if it could cause mold (on the capsules that is).

If you turn into a tree, you'll probably need to add antiparasitics, so I wouldn't recommend it.

I'm with Keebler, you may be doing too many protocols at once.

No, it's not easy. But it shouldn't destroy your sanity or turn you into a tree.

Figure out what's necessary, and what you can add back in at a later date.

I hear ya!!! I am taking pills and drops etc all day long. It really is hard to keep up with it all but I try not to get too stressed over it all. I am not so strict about exact times.

You definitely have to try to keep your sanity so try not to get too worked up about all this.

I have been thinking of trying bioenergetic or ART testing to see if I can narrow down some of these meds and supplements. That would be nice if I could take less but more targeted treatments.

Anyhow...hang in there and try not to get too stressed out.

Sick since 10/2001. Tested CDC positive for Lyme 10/2008 through Quest and Igenex. Started treatment 1/2009 with LLMD. Lyme, Erichilosis, Chlamydophila Pneumoniae, Q Fever, Strep Syndrome and probably a few others I am forgetting.

I hear you, Back!

I can deal with my stuff OK as I'm home most days.

Then I add my daughter's stuff in and I'm 1/2 way to crazy. Her school schedule makes it difficult (everything has to be kept in the office). This summer she's running around like a nut so I'm always packing pills in baggies with notes on them for her.

My husband takes care of himself pretty much but there are times when I have to check up on him, remind him.

And now I plan to put my son on Buhner protocol? My brain is terrified, frantically trying to escape!

Where to start, where do I get them, how do I start him, how to do this while he's in school... so many questions... I really need a vacation from pills and from schedules and from thinking about treatment and illness.

Or an instruction booklet would be good. "Do this, follow step 1, step 2, step 3..."

I'm not complaining exactly, as it's a huge blessing that we can all be in treatment. I'm just letting you know I understand the feeling of being overwhelmed by it all.

Maybe a break of a day or two would give your mind time to reorganize?
