End of year reflection…and some big news

As I sit here and reflect on this year I wonder how much this year has helped me grow into a woman. I left behind a lot of things.

Illness plagued this year. Considering I spent approximately 5 months early this year bedridden and yet I am healthy today is a feat like no other. A miracle if you will.  Floxing changed everything about how I interact with the world. What substances I will put in my home and in my body. Chemicals are everywhere and I’m keeping my environment as natural as possible. 

Being sick also led to an even greater understanding of how very short life is. We only get one chance at life…well this one at least…so it’s pertinent to remember this and keep our dreams big and our hearts open.

My birthday is New Years Eve and I will be 29 this year. I have one last year of my 20’s and this is bringing about change as well.

My Saturn Return also falls over the next year. I’ve written several posts wondering about what my Saturn Return might mean.

Well, I do know one thing I will be doing…

My big news..

I am expecting my first child next year!

BIG changes on the way it seems. 🙂

And such a wonderful gift after struggling through this year.

I am excited and ecstatic! 

They Don’t Understand

As someone who has been down that road this year and fighting my way out all while trying to educate my friends and family on floxing I feel this post..big time.

It may be impossible for anyone who has not experienced fluoroquinolone toxicity to understand what it’s like.

It’s difficult for the person who is going through fluoroquinolone toxicity to explain that EVERYTHING is going wrong; and it is even more difficult for those around them to understand.

It’s beyond most people’s comprehension that a commonly prescribed antibiotic, maybe one that they themselves have taken, can cause debilitating pain, exhaustion, loss of mental capacity, inability to move, etc. in their formerly healthy loved one.  Most people think that antibiotics are benign, so they are unable to understand that an antibiotic destroyed the health of their spouse, friend, child, parent, etc.  They think, “it must be something else,” or “the drug should be out of your system by now,” or, simply, “what are you talking about?!” when you tell them that all of your health problems can be traced back to the…

Hope.

What can I say? 

Its been a scary couple of weeks. 

Today my doctor confirmed I have tendon “issues”. Basically,  I have tendintis in almost every tendon from the knee down in my right leg.  I have been given only the answer of its going to take time. I have to keep resting,  put heat on it, and probably need physio.  

What iis terrible is the fact that I only took two doses of Cipro. Why is a drug like this even on the market? 

I aam frustrated and trying to keep my head up because I must keep positive to get better. 

I am going to get healthy again. 

I am going to dance everyday again.

I am going to survive. 

I am strong. 

Health.

Well. I have had quite the health scare this past week and a half. 

I went to the emergency room a week and a half ago with pain in my lower back around where my kidney is. I’d had suspected kidney stones before and a couple kidney infections so I knew I had to get looked at soon.

Long story short, without having a full confirmation that I had an infection I was prescribed an antibiotic called ciproflaxacin.  After just two doses of this drug my right leg began swelling. 

I have been in and out of hospitals 4 times in the last week. The swelling turned to pain in my tendons ligaments muscles and joints in that leg. 

I have been in such excruciating pain that I am now on percocets. 

Doctors have been doing batteries of tests. My major concern was a blood clot but I have since had no signs of that through tests. 

That drug is known to cause tendonitis and tendon rupture.  I believe all the symptoms I am experiencing are related to that drug. I’ve found hundreds of stories just like mine online. I haven’t been able to walk in 6 days. I am on crutches.  

I believe this drug caused a toxicity of my system. Right now my biggest goal is to ccompletely detox and cleanse my body of this and any other toxins.  

This has tested me to the very core. I am a dancer. That is my livelihood.  To say I have felt devastated over the last week and a half is an understatement. 

Thankfully, I have friends who are supportive and knowledgeable in cleansing the body. 

For the first time today i am feeling a glimmer of hope again.  I will fight this. I will gain back my health. 

I will survive…duh…that’s what I do. 

 

Ps- don’t take cipro or levaquin or related drugs. Bad bad bad no no no!!!
