Pulse 39 (1st with rifampicin)
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, amoxicillini 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 antibioticsi. There are only so many hours in the day and so sometimes I have had to give the probiotics a miss (like tonight).
It would be nice to hear reports of me walking the coastal path ... but I am hopeful but not deluded. The glimmer that I would really welcome would be the end of my foot drop. My right foot is badly affected by that. My core muscles are weak as am I generally.
I certainly think women do better on this treatment than men. I know one woman personally that has gotten better (Moggy) and have had internet contact with several other women that have gotten better too. I cannot recall any men that have really done well. Where's the Equality in all this? Surely all these feminists say that they believe in equality but then when it comes to the wellness, they're keeping it all for themselves!
As I say, I am quite weak these days but I shall use my energies fighting for Equality and Wellness for All ... (and defeat feminism along the way).
This could well have been my lucky pulse. I has certainly felt harder on me this time. If I don't wake up dead tomorrow, I will hopefully write about my predicted glimmers (as I say, I have to be helpful)
As well as wishing myself good luck, I wish all those other determined CAPers out there good luck too. Yes, that's you Jam, Froggy, Bo and many many more. And to the overtakers out there like Lucky Irene: watch out! We can all catch you up.
