Sorry for all the long posts. Will try to keep this short.
I have been thinking the last two days about how my immune system launched a huge attack on this thing or it would not have manifested and just kept brewing. We know the body needs the antibodies to launch an attack, so for me this is encouraging because I don't produce enough antibodies to launch an attack let alone a good one. This coincided with the last antibody infusion I had on Tuesday. I started fevering on Wednesday, thought it was just typical infusion stuff where my body says hey we have an army let's clean up things around here, but it turned out to be this gum tissue incident. I'm excited because this means the treatments are helping my body launch an attack against foreign invaders (this one started last summer) And even though it isn't strong enough the same as any normal avg. healthy body, it is trying like it should!! This is good news for me! = )
The alternate therapies have worked for me better than many allopathic treatments and sometimes I have raised the eyebrows of my doctors, but I insist on not doing anymore than absolutely necessary. The IVIG is one my body cannot do without, I tried it for the last four years and only got myself into a pickle. I am not on a gazillion drugs like some in my position, I don't mean this in a bad way, I just wish they understood how well the natural remedies work. It's hard work and you do go through some pain, but it is worth it to wake up and not have to be medicated every single day of your life. It may not give you the total health a normal person has but you know what, close is good enough for me.
CZ'rs, I thank you for all that you are willing to share both by way of knowledge and experience.
