Can you Fit Anymore Pills in those Pill Boxes?
I am on approximately 22 different supplements to keep my immune system boosted during my treatment. Most of these I take twice a day and I take more than one each time. So that makes for a total of about 80 supplements a month I need to take so my kidney, liver, WBC, RBC and cortisol levels do not take a beating and can eventually take over in keeping my infection in check.
In addition, I am on anywhere from one to 4 different antibiotics and anti-malarials–all taken twice a day with more than one taken at a time. These total about 24 to 60 pills per month.
Thus, as you can see, treating for disseminated Lyme disease is both time-consuming and complicated, and burn out is common. For me, personally, I find it mentally exhausting, and oftentimes I fight to keep myself awake so I can finish filling my pill boxes in one sitting. Sometimes it gets the best of me, and I have to take a nap before finishing.
Energy is something I used to take for granted but not anymore. There’s so much I no longer take for granted.
