Chronicles of a Rifampinaut: Pulse 24

Submitted by farandwide on Sun, 2008-06-15 10:51

Day 2 of pulse 24.  Nothing remarkable to report, the pulse is going much the same as most of  my prior pulses have gone.  I have a bit of heaviness and burning in my legs but otherwise feel about the same as I did before the pulse.  This being the second day, that could easily change come Monday when the work week begins again, as does my work schedule.

I stopped INH about three weeks ago and have been having less inflammation.  What I had before made it really difficult to function on some days, I just wasn't able to get around the way I was before INH and since getting off of it.  I think the combination of abx was just too much.  I even did two pulses while on continuous INH.  Better to scale back a bit.

Yesterday, I started a new supplement - GliSODin.  I haven't noticed much of any effect from it although I do think it had a little.  I was having food and something seemed to make me feel a little better, something that has never before, so I don't know if it was the GliSODin of not but it's an interesting coincidence.

So, after this pulse is finished, I will have entirely finished 2 years on the protocol.  I've had no remarkable benefits that I'm aware of although it is possible that it has arrested progress; however, how does one know?  There is no way to know, it's all speculation.  Dr. Stratton says 3 - 5 years on the protocol so onward I go.
