If you don't know from past posts, i had ME ( am doing so well now) but i still have a very poor immune system, which means that I get sick a lot. Every little bug that comes around during winter i get. Last year, which has a fairly good year, i got tonsillitis, laryngitis, thrush, sinusitis so many times and so i was always on antibiotics and the chemist and i are on first name basis. Being always sick meant that i was stop starting gym and the depression kicked in again, i was super forgetful, and I had to have my bipolar med adjusted.
Towards the end of last year I had sinus surgery. I hope and I pray that it will sort out a lot of the problem. But going on another antibiotic, which means the second lot already for 2011 makes me very unhappy.
I think I want to go back to a homeopath as I cant face another antibiotic and I do believe it’s the way to go. But I struggle to trust homeopaths as I have been to 3 that haven't really helped much. The one kept trying to play psychologist and I spent three sessions all about my childhood, taking lots of little white powders that didnt help when I thought enough is enough.
I am also very jaded. When I suffered with ME for years, I spend tens of thousands of rands at homeopaths, naturapaths, alternative doctors, and to be fair, normal GP's. I went wheat free dairy free , I did the "natural way lifestyle" of not mixing proteins with carbs, I tried vegetarian, smoothies, juicing, etc, ozone therapy, even electrical pulse therapy, yet I was so sick.
I began to suffer from serious depression and had a compete emotional melt down. Eventually I managed to find a Dr that really helps and I am 80% better with the ME, but the Dr doesn’t believe in alternative medicine.
So, what to do??
