An Update on the Blog's Status

Hi all,

Recently, someone asked if we had decided to abandon this blog, probably because it's been a little over a year since the last update. It's a fair question and it deserves an answer, even if that answer amounts to a long-winded "I really hope not."

Last year about this time, Dee started having some health issues due to some medication she was taking. The medication carried with it a risk of blood clots, and after a few weeks of what she thought was non-specific pain and nausea, she went to a doctor who confirmed that she had a blood clot on the portal vein leading from her liver. She went on blood thinners for an extended period of time to help diminish the clot.

Even after the clot got smaller, though, and she stopped taking the medication that caused it, she wasn't improving. It took us several months to narrow it down and get an official diagnosis, but the doctors confirmed that she has fibromyalgia and that the stresses on her system from the blood clot, the blood thinners (and attendant bruising and trauma from having blood that didn't clot well), and a few other shocks around the same time had left her entire nervous system hypersensitive to pain.

Basically, right now Dee is dealing with a chronic medical condition that leaves her susceptible to fatigue and discomfort, and she has very little energy. Under those circumstances, we're focusing on conserving her strength for things like work and family life, and letting other things go for a bit. We're hopeful that as she recovers from the shocks to her body, she will gradually see a diminishing of the symptoms of her fibro and be able to resume the blog, but it's not a priority (understandably) and we don't have a timeline. Thank you all for your patience and understanding.

  1. John, thanks for the update. Dee, so sorry to hear about your fibromyalgia. I wish you a swift improvement. This blog has been a pleasure to read. Best of luck to you both.

  2. Irrespective of receiving daily oral or future injectable depot therapies, these require health care visits for medication and monitoring of safety and response. If patients are treated early enough, before a lot of immune system damage has occurred, life expectancy is close to normal, as long as they remain on successful treatment. However, when patients stop therapy, virus rebounds to high levels in most patients, sometimes associated with severe illness because i have gone through this and even an increased risk of death. The aim of “cure”is ongoing but i still do believe my government made millions of ARV drugs instead of finding a cure. for ongoing therapy and monitoring. ARV alone cannot cure HIV as among the cells that are infected are very long-living CD4 memory cells and possibly other cells that act as long-term reservoirs. HIV can hide in these cells without being detected by the body’s immune system. Therefore even when ART completely blocks subsequent rounds of infection of cells, reservoirs that have been infected before therapy initiation persist and from these reservoirs HIV rebounds if therapy is stopped. “Cure” could either mean an eradication cure, which means to completely rid the body of reservoir virus or a functional HIV cure, where HIV may remain in reservoir cells but rebound to high levels is prevented after therapy interruption.Dr Itua Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from,Parkinson's disease,Schizophrenia,Cancer,Scoliosis,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Toxicity
