Yesterday and Today

Yesterday, I had to take four--yes, four--antibiotics because of my babesia relapse. I was so exhausted, but not nearly as badly as I expected. I could still function, although I certainly didn't feel well. The kids watched a lot more movies than I would like to admit, but sometimes you've just got to do what you've got to do!

I used my sauna last night and it really made me feel better. I sweated more than normal and I wonder if that meant I had extra toxins in my body; maybe it was just a coincidence, though. Today, I feel loads better! Was it the extra dose of Lariam? Was it the sauna? Or am I just having a good day? Who knows? What matters is that I feel great today! 


  1. Oh, I wish I could sauna...we just hve the one that looks like a jiffy popcorn bag? it smells strong of chemicals and I cannot use it...I think I would feel alot better if I could sauna and get rid of toxins...
    Glad you are doing better again...Hope it holds!

  2. Mine looks like toaster. It's probably the same one! I've heard other people say that about the chemicals, but mine never smelled. I've heard people say they ran their sauna a few times (without getting in) to get the smell out. Have you tried that?

  3. Heat always helps with my arthritis. I am a baaad crunchy mommy, and have a heated mattress pad for the winter. I don't think I could sleep without it!
