Mark My Words

I survived my first Bicillin injection on Wednesday! The needle amazingly didn't hurt a bit and it was over in a heartbeat. The site became sore several hours later; not right away like I expected. I figured that I would start Herxing right away, but I actually didn't get really sick until around 10 hours later. I was VERY sick for a few hours--complete with uncontrollable, violent muscle jerking--and I wanted to throw in the towel, but I had a friend with me who helped me through the pain.

Tonight is my second shot. My derriere is pretty sore, and it's going to be very painful when I have to have another shot on that side (we alternate sides every time). I will be getting injections on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from now until question mark. My plan for this weekend is to hole up in my bed and watch a marathon of The Wonder Years on Netflix.

I am so proud of my body for how hard it is fighting this battle. Lyme disease treatment is incredibly difficult, both physically and mentally. But, I am stubborn and strong-willed and I will never, ever give up. Mark my words, I WILL OVERCOME THIS!
