Where have I been? Website news, updates on treatment and life in general (and, finally, more EBV DesBio updates!)
I know it's been a very long while in internet-time since I've been able to string together a coherent post or update to share with all of you. I could make many excuses for that, but the simple fact is this: my current symptoms/flares/herxes are majorly affecting me cognitively, in addition to the pain and more, and when all are added together, a blog post seems like a task more daunting than running a marathon (okay, maybe not quite, but you get the idea).
I did want to tell you about something I've started, though, in an effort to make up for the times in which I'm unable to physically, or mentally, write consistently and coherently, so I'm excited to share this news with you!
I've started a YouTube channel; there aren't many videos on there as of yet, and my topics vary, but they do also include things like treatment updates (I'm including the link to my video talking about my DesBio for EBV treatment below), general life circumstances, how to have joy, eating disorder recovery, my original CHH (Christian Hip Hop/Rap) tracks, and literally anything (serious, fun, funny, or just interesting) that enters my mind as I connect with others via video on the internet...which is why my channel is aptly named... BexConnects!
The goal is to connect with others, to connect with and learn things about myself that may be hidden under these layers of illness (kind of a video version of my Rediscovering Becca project I started (I think) in October of 2015, since I never was quite able to keep up with that as I initially wanted and intended to do.
The good thing about video content? Well, for any of us struggling with significant neurological issues related to Lyme and friends, I've found something I can't read an article/post, can't watch a video, etc., because my eyes and brain can't tolerate the stimulation or process the information. With these videos, most, if not all, of them will be recorded in such a way that you can just have the video on in the background to listen (like my EBV update video below–you should be able to understand what I'm sharing without having to physically look at the screen with your eyes, if that's a problem for you).
I hope to be able to update on here more frequently as I make videos I think are appropriate for this page, as well, so if you're interested to follow me on this journey, be on the lookout!
For now, here's some info about the Deseret Biologicals (DesBio) homeopathic Series Therapy for EBV (Epstein-Barr Virus, in case someone needed clarification there). This is a long overdue update, which is why the video is as long as it is, but one of my goals with my channel is to continually be able to trim down videos and get better with editing so they're more concise and easier to get through...but, as I said, for now, here's my video update on my experience with the DesBio EBV Series Therapy. I know some have asked over the past year and a half or so, so if you're looking for an update other than what I have typed in my treatment blog section, here it is!
Feel free to check out any of the other videos on my channel thus far–I don't have an extensive library up yet, but I plan on adding more as I'm able, whenever I'm able, however I'm able, on whatever topics I'm able.
Remember, guys, not every day is good, but if we look hard enough, we can find some good-for-us in every day. Don't lose sight of that, and don't forget that you have the power to CHOOSE Joy, regardless of circumstances.
