Bad Bugs and Pug Tales

I forced myself out the house on the weekend to harvest the first of the wild garlic crop in nearby Castle Combe. We also stocked up on cow parsley and fresh pine shoots for tea. It’s said to help with a sore throat, which I can certainly use right about now after all the antibiotics I’ve been taking to try and eradicate my B. Hominis. I caught it about 10 years ago but the doctors didn’t even bother testing for it though I had chronic diarrhoea for several months on and off. Finally, I’ve managed to get the antibiotics recommended on the Bad Bugs website from Australia, which I highly recommend reading if you suffer with IBS, as I had no idea that I actually had two kinds of amoebic parasites which have been fermenting in my stomach, causing leaky gut, and stealing my nutrients for several years now!

Pugmix The Duke wasn’t exactly pleased with the wild garlic foray—bit too stinky for his liking—but we wandered over to a nearby stream and he was quite taken with the small waterfall which I captured him staring at in curiosity. Energised from his swim, he had himself a quick romp through the field before heading home for a nice traditional Sunday roast for us, and some raw duck for The Duke cause Duck Tales make his dreams come truuueeee, whooh oh 🎶

Oh and true story, I was today years old when I found out that You Make My Dreams Come True and Duck Tales are separate songs, albeit with a very similar melody 😆

Has anyone had success with Gabapentin for Fibromyalgia symptoms? Any negative reactions to Gabapentin?

Hi all. I’ve just been recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia even though I’ve suspected it for the last 4 years. My Rheumatologist prescribed me Gabapentin but I’m deathly afraid because of the possible side effects. I’ve been on Lyrica about 3 years ago, which did nothing for my pain and made me a total zombie. I couldn’t focus, was extremely fatigued, and lost things (I lost my wedding ring, of all things!!) :’(

Knowing the unknown

Today as I wake up, I realize again that my body doesn’t like me. Diagnosed as a child with cerebral palsy, 39 years later to be diagnosed with heredity spastic paraplegia, but waiting on the type. Doctor said it may be an unknown type because my symptoms are so rare. Then fighting chronic fatigue, leaky gut, migraines, Hashimoto’s disease a whole host of other issues, it’s disturbing not to know what’s wrong. I am doing my own research, trying to find an answer myself. It sucks when you don’t know. It’s like the monster from the deep. A faceless creature that is making life go from walking to being in a chair full time in rapid fashion of 3 years. #ChronicIllness #ChronicFatigueSyndromeampME #HereditarySpasticParaplegia #HashimotosThyroiditis #ChronicPain #UnknownIllness #CerebralPalsy #LeakyGut #Anxiety #Wheelchair


Who has leaky gut and how do you deal?

#IrritableBowelSyndromeIBS #LeakyGut

I almost certainly have a leaky gut. I’m doing a bunch of tests right now. I just mailed off some stuff from my body that I didn’t think I would ever be allowed send in the mail! Anyways, what are symptoms that you get from it? I know it’s gross but don’t spare details if you don’t want, I’m trying to figure out what I have to do. I’m stuck right now where idk what to eat. What triggers the worse symptoms? Do you get migraines or other issues from eating issues?
