Once more unto the beach

I should really have written more over the year but long story short, I’m heading back to Cyprus for more treatment. Last time I had great gains but I need a bit more to get me over the finishing line. I’ll write more once I’m in Cyprus, because this plane is about to take off!

How to do home ozone

It’s been one week since I got back home. I’ve had the worst jet lag I’ve ever had in my whole life, coupled with crazy insomnia, and I feel pretty awful. For that reason I am not going to re-score my symptom list yet as I want a true representation.

In the meantime, I’m going to tell you how to get your home ozone setup working. I bought myself a Promolife O3Elite kit which comes with the pieces to perform home insufflations and ozonate water.

Week 3 in Cyprus

Not a lot to say here other than that I have continued to herx quite strongly, and in fact last Monday I had probably the worst one I’ve ever had in the 5 years I’ve been trying to treat this crap.

Week 2 in Cyprus

The treatment is starting to bite.

In the meantime, week 2 just happened. It’s been rough, very rough, as the major herxing started and I’ve also had some vein problems – two burst and one collapsed – so extra pain there and added complications finding new veins for the 10 pass ozone.

Pre-Cyprus Lyme Status

I thought I’d write a few things down about my current state of health affairs, prior to heading to Cyprus next week. This is partly so I can record “the before” and compare to how I feel when I get back, and partly because I want folks reading this to understand how awful Lyme is on a daily basis. This is important not because I want sympathy, but because it can’t be said enough about how this is a hidden disease. Most people suffering will be trying to hide it, not show it, so they can have some semblance of a normal life.

Off to Cyprus

It seems somewhat fitting that almost exactly 5 years since I became aware that I had Lyme-like symptoms, I’ve made the big decision to travel to Cyprus for intensive treatment as my own home treatment has been good at keeping the worst symptoms at bay but has proven very hard to totally eradicate the infection.

Random Test Inputs – part 2

Test

If you saw my last post Random inputs in unit testing you’ll remember that I was advocating the benefits of using random test data in your unit tests.

One of the bits of feedback that I had (and seems to be the main complaint of most people who are against this) is that you need reliable test input so that you can recreate failures.
