Babies were protected in placentas from parasites, and parasites were unknown- not scattered but in intestines where they belonged. No use of immunesuppressants before either baby was born either.
In 2007- pregnant w daughter. Ate out every night. Diarrhea became the norm, like 1x day
After having her diarrhea remained.
It gradually picked up, maybe 4x day.
Celiac dx went gluten free but D continued.
2011-pregnant. Diarrhea 8x daily was normal. :( 42 weeks of Antibiotics because I had recurrent UTIs that wouldn't go away with courses of abx. (Group B. Strep and Klebsiella UTIs). Should've indicated parasites from this pregnancy.
Diarrhea got worse/same. Told to travel 6hrs roundtrip for "inflammatory bowel disease" GI MD at UF. She couldn't understand why such diarrhea, no Crohn's disease and no Ulcerative colitis. I had every test run, but only O&P for parasites. She said she, "fundamentally does not believe in parasites". Therefore, I trusted her and tried every immune suppressant she threw my way. I even had a PEG feeding tube hole in stomach.
Started having abnormal pancreatic tests. An endoscopic ultrasound show very narrow ducts. I suspect parasites were in ducts.
All this time my children and husband were super healthy. I was the only one having diarrhea 8-10x daily. I had C.Diff (deadly GI infection) in '13 and '14. I took vancomycin and had donor (eeeck, screened thru o&p!) Fecal Transplants.
Feb-Mar '14 dxd with blastocystis hominis. Did Humaworm....everything scattered and had loads of nasties exit. It was after humaworm that I had C.Diff again. So, in addition to vancomycin, I was on hydrocortisone steroids for inflammation. Hyperinfection got worse. Of course, I had no clue about scattering or hyperinfection, all I knew was things were crawling under my skin and I had cysts in inner thigh that were coming and going....never had before. No morgellons. I trusted Humaworm, I trusted Dr.Bradshaw who advised it, I trusted my mainstream GI at UF Health. Shame on me for not knowing better. I had profound displays of helminths and much more on Humaworm. It just didn't kill it all and big things escaped my "chain linked fence" leaky gut.
My son drank after me last fall, not last week. They are not the same. They are irritable, cranky, agitated, grind teeth, have crawling, he has to be told to use words, is exhausted all of the time- rather nap then play. He even said, "mommy please don't let me die. Don't let me die". No three yr old does that. It was like night and day after he drank after me. He immediately had a 100.3 fever. I was freaked. Then, his sister used his whistle/drank after him. And she does feel crawling in her foot. So yeah, I am frantic. They ARE my life. My daughter has said, "why can't we just be normal". She is only 7. I know they must be suffering.
I don't know how to get well. I have leaky gut and paras everywhere, bad anemia. I took ABZ today. And so that's my not so happy story. If my kids were well and I as deathly sick as I am, I would be so happy for my children. They truly are all that matters to me.
