Day six of Ivermectin and I feel... well... ordinary. No crazy stomach stuff. No mass exodus of visitors. No unscheduled trips to the ER.
Is it bad to be just a WEE bit disappointed?
Not for nothing. I'm not looking for some great disaster. But after a week of worrying and countless emails from friends asking begging me not to take it, I expected SOMETHING (horrible stomach pain, intense gurgling, a third eye, purple pee). Makes me wonder....Is my medicine a dud? Am I doing it wrong? Will this stuff even work on me?
Tonight, I upped my dose (again)--now to 3/4 the recommended amount. In an effort to save my liver and end my thrushy, McThrush problem, I've also stopped taking antibiotics. Killing yeast and parasites is a big enough job for one body...just my opinion.
One a side note: Diflucan is kicking my A$$. The arm/pin prick pain is out of control. Don't know why in my head pain = progress, but it always makes me at least feel like something's happening. Feel free to read debates about the no pain, no gain theory here and here and here.
6 days down. 24 more to go.
