My Bucket List


One day, when I'm finally rid of this miserable disease, I would like to ...

1. Learn to SCUBA (qualified in chilly Lake Ontario, and since then got wet in Hawaii, Mexican Gulf, Dominican Republic and swam with Manatees)

2. Jump out of a perfectly good plane, yes with a parachute!

3. Parasail (Dominican Republic, May 2011)

4. Go dancing all night without worrying about having to spend the next day in bed.

5. Watch episodes of my favourite CSI-type TV shows and actually be able to follow the plot again.

6. Do proper quilling (paper craft) again without applying the glue to everywhere else.

7. Follow a recipe without mixing up the ingredients or forgetting the pot on the stove.

8. Throw away my many huge pill containers and get rid of the home pharmacy!

9. Not be on a first-name basis with all the people at the pharmacy.

10. Enjoy an Icewine Martini with friends.

11. Plan an evening out without having to wonder what it might cost in energy the next day.

12. Be a wife to my patient husband.

13. Walk along the Niagara Falls paths again myself, instead of in a wheelchair. But rather do it that way than not go at all.

14. Be able to donate my organs. (Changed: Donated my body to science to study Lyme Disease, at the University of Toronto. See THIS POST, under the last part.)

15. Focus on one thing at a time again when needed.

16. Be able to do a week's Liveaboard somewhere, hopefully Fiji, to do SCUBA dives daily, and not be afraid of being a nuisance to everyone else.

17. Multitask as was common practice before.

18.  Enjoy a grilled cheese sandwich with Colby or Cheddar. Miss that dreadfully with the food restrictions.

19. There's probably more, but I can't think right now!

Please please PLEASE try a product that worked for me... http://www.inno-vite.com/brochures/GSE-Brochure-E.pdf

I was symptom free for 5 years after taking it for a month and was up and walking energized after just 3 days.. only $12 at Fortino's.. Innovite's Grapefruit Seed Extract with Oregano Oil.
I was symptom free for 5 years (other than tight constriction in rib cage) until I took a transformative breathwork seminar which I think forced them out of hiding (they hate oxygen).
If I could do it all again, I would have done the breathwork AND the GSE w/ OO together. I'm late stage chronic now and am using essential oils for pain relief (not the brand in the video so this is not a sales pitch) https://vimeo.com/24533235

All the Best!

Thanks for the post, Martina. Glad you are doing better!
I use Grapefruit Seed Extract, Oregano oil, Auum oil (that is a fabulous product!), Evening Primrose oil, Resveratrol, Garlic, Vit C from Rosehips, Vit B's, Teasel root --- and have been doing so for months.

If I didn't use all of those, I would probably have been in a greater mess.

Best to you too!
