Help on reentering the world…

We’ve been gone on vacation to Whitefish MT the past week; it was a success in that I had more energy overall and could participate in meals and some walking outings. I’m hopeful that this week’s DUTCH-hormone testing at ND will improve things further.

In the meantime, I’m struggling a bit with finding a balance in pushing the envelope to ease out of the habits of just squeaking by. I could use some advice! Setting modest daily goals for now.

I made the decision to hire a life coach probably 3? months ago when I was feeling fabulous and thought I’d get back to work. In hindsight I think I felt so good because of finally getting first bit of thyroid T3 meds and doing lllt laser treatments at same time which combined for superstar energy. I absolutely will get back there! In the meantime, this coach of mine has really been a mixed bag. I’ve thought about just taking a loss and cancelling last sessions but figured I’m used to low value specialist appointments. The person was trained by Oprahs coach Martha Beck, and seems to want people to find their ‘real’ calling to replace typical career. After being sick so long I’m all about helping pay bills with a steady income. Now that I’m feeling pretty good again (thanks increased T3 & lllt!), the coach wants me to ponder how I’ve benefitted from being ill so long. Erm– I am the master of looking on the bright side, but this smacks of how could I have caused Cfs and ‘hung onto it’. Puhlease. It is not my fault doctors are ‘practicing’ medicine and can’t diagnose thyroid resistance to save their lives. My life.

Onward to goal setting. Any other ideas please share, have Google-fatigue on Cfs recovery steps which amounts to preachy ridiculous stuff like graded exercise. Without the T3, exercise would have dug me further in the hole Fer Sure. On bad days I just wave my arms in the air for a couple mins. Ha!

Thyroid and Lllt Cure week 1: CFS Fibro EDS CVS Chronic Migraine

I’m in the pattern of 50 mcg T3 in am and 25 mcg T4 pm; had second lllt treatment yesterday. Today has been a full deep breath of fresh air. Cleaning house for first time in forever. Went grocery shopping and prepping to make dinner. There’s a lot of ‘life backlog’ be prioritized but with brain online it seems no big deal.

Just scheduled third lllt treatment for right before the weekend to make sure my family gets some of this ‘on time’.

I’ve seen various studies online regarding lllt and what piqued my interest were studies mentioned in Dr. Norman Doidge’s book ‘The Brain’s way of Healing’. I’ll be taking notes at upcoming treatments regarding laser type & settings used. This site URL has good recap detail on a clinic’s patients that were helped by low level laser: http://sydneylaserhealthsolutions.com.au/conditions/65-fibromyalgia-cfs

Hoping this cure continues!

Lllt for EDS CFS Fibro Migraine Metabolic syndrome

I’ve come full circle. End of last year tried low level laser treatment for Fibro muscle spasms and was delighted to find the days after treatment I had MUCH increased energy. I went from a 1-2 on the Cfs activity scale to being so active I thought I could return to work. I organized the kitchen! I made a full bed-sized blanket and started the next! I was also trying several other treatments and lllt was most expensive so have been relying on less expensive options for past months. I have returned to 1-2 on Cfs activity scale so restarted lllt this week at a new location.

This Dr knew exactly what I was talking about concerning the energy boost and said he has another patient with Ehlers and CFS- they started laser treatments on spinal column: first 3x weekly for couple weeks, then twice weekly, weekly, monthly. Patient went traveling for months & months and eventually relapsed, came back for lllt and is now on a monthly maintenance schedule.

So excited I can possibly get my life back and may just need one lllt maintenance appointment monthly. Will post updates.
