After my marathon cold coming to an stubborn end, I have finally been able to pulse again. This morning, I got up early (for me) and took a tini tab. This is pulse 44. I had planned on using metro but the tini were close at hand. Let's see how we go with this one.
A couple of hours ago I popped my first tini tab of this, pulse 43. When this strip of tinidazole is finished, that will be my last tini pulse; I have no more. I have a box of 21 metronidazole that I brought back from Spain latest autumn. If I do decide to pulse after that, I'll pick up some more metro when I'm in Madeira.
I am currently still taking rifampacin. That supply is due to run out in October too. It'd certainly be great if I could look back then and say that I am now fit. Being realistic is no fun at all.
I'm a little late ... but I stated tini pulse 42 a few hours ago. Still hoping for magic.
Tini pulse 41 nearly finished. One more tab to take at lunchtime and I'm done.
In the early hours of last Monday (27th) I started tinidazole pulse 40. A couple of hours ago I took my last tini tab of this pulse ... and I'm still here. Hey, this has been two pulses in the same month! I have found this pulse less irksome than the last. I am weaker than ever but ever hopeful. The weather has been dreadful with torrential rain and blustery winds, so I haven't missed brisk power-walking along the Coastal Path (yeah, if only!).
A couple of hours ago I popped my final tablet of this pulse. It is actually the first time that I have pulsed whilst taking rifampicin and amoxacillin. Was it any different? It was certainly more arduous fitting everything in. Rifampicin, amoxicillin and azithromycin without food ... then doxycycline and tinidazole with food. Then on top of that one has to take probiotics away from all of the antibiotics. There are only so many hours in the day and so sometimes I have had to give the probiotics a miss (like tonight).
In the early hours of this morning, I popped my first capsule of rifampicin. As far as I am aware, I didn't wake up dead, so about an hour ago I put my 2nd capsule ... and it seems that I'm still not dead. I am on half dose of 300 milligrams per day and shall double up two-fold within the coming week. I must say that I did seem to feel it ... but then it could have been just my imagination.
In the early hours of this morning, I took Rica's advice; I bit the bullet and opened a big tub containing 500 x 500mg capsules of amoxicillin. I have already popped the 2nd one.
A few hours ago, I just finished tini pulse 38. I suppose that I have been a bit naughty by not announcing it until it was over. I have been a bit naughty in many ways recently; missing supplements for days on end for one thing. I suppose that I need to get out of the rut and try to spark some energy into myself. Perhaps I could connect my mitochondria up to the mains?
Anyway, tinidazole pulse 38 is over. I had no energy before it and I don't believe that I have gained any. I have a big polothene bag full of rifampicin, given the me by one of our Eastern European members. I shall rest up for a week before commencing.
Pulse #37 just started and back with Tinidazole again. I have been very week so not keen to Start ... but hey-ho, it seems that there are girlies out there with more bottle than me. I thought that I'd better crack on.
