About the myco plasma/bacterial debate: I forgot that the MP included not taking any other meds,it's been so long since I've read it.My own Dr never had me quit any of my meds,I just took the minocycline along with my other stuff. I still think to be closed minded about these things is foolish, this treatment helped me a lot and I just wanted to pass the information along. Also, about everyone's FEAR of herbs,and naturopaths,that's about worn on my last nerve. Early on in my journey with this awful disease,my "convential" drs decided not to address my auto immune problems,instead giving me four different heavy duty heart meds at once,which triggered my lupus, I also was given heart meds that gave me worse arrythmias,and one rheumy gave me a med,that if I hadn't double checked it,would have made it impossible for me to breath,because of my asthma,he had that on my chart,and overlooked it. I've found a place where I could get the treatment I needed without the fear I'd developed. We all are in a different place with our AI problems. Conventional meds have different uses, and can be dangerous if used improperly,just like "natural meds" God gave us herbs for our use,it's up to us to use them responsibly and do our research about their benefits,interactions,and possible negative side effects. There are pros and cons with each. Just keep an open mind and don't belittle others who are trying to navigate this difficult disease as best they can. Judy

And while it rarely slips? Yep. Partial dislocation in place, so to speak. Overdid it, then just needed that one little extra stressor, and there it went. (Freaking laundry, can you believe? Carried two loads down...
