Mielipiteitä kaiken paskan keskeltä

Ilkka on ollut työkyvyttömänä 2017 lähtien. Ystävämme Borrelioosi, Anaplasmoosi, Bartonella ja Yersinia diagnosoitiin vihdoin 3 vuoden kohdalla, ja nyt seuraillaan miten lääkitys toimii. On toiminut jo osin, mutta pitkä matka vielä.

Lisäksi ykköstyypin diabetes ja kahteen kertaan murskaantunut Charcotin jalka, jolla ei enää koskaan kävellä normaalisti -- eteneminen tällä hetkellä (sähkö)pyörätuolilla. Tämän 3,5 vuoden aikana kehittyneen vaikean masennuksen myötä paketti on kasassa.

Siispä mielipiteitä ja ajatuksia, koska jonnekin ne pitää purkaa. Sitä samaa mitä kaikki muutkin. Yhy. Ajoittain toki muutakin, usein ykköstyypin diabetekseen liittyen. Joo, pyörittelen paljon ykköstyypin diabeetikoiden juttuja, mutta olen muutakin.

Back to the Wheelchair (and a bit of Iceland)

Today I got home from the hospital, where I’ve been for a week. It all started during my trip to Reykjavik, Iceland, where I landed with an Icelandair B757 on Thursday 13th of February. During Thursday and Friday there really was nothing to do outside, since the storm winds started to be violent in Reykjavik. So after all of the hurricane force wind warnings, cancelled tour activities etc in the area, I really didn’t get out of the hotel(s) until Saturday. And on that day, I walked the litte...

The Story of the Foot

The story of my five-point-fractured Charcot Foot is continuing next week, when I’m going to the next specialist at a different surgical hospital here in Helsinki. Since my doctor at the previous clinic (in Espoo) was so clearly an amateur with her childish and rude behaviour, I do have to have a second opinion on what I should do with the foot in the near future. Of course it might be, that the amateur doc is correct with her instructions, but since I have absolutely no points of trust...

Lyme’s disease The medical treatment to Lyme’s disease has now been on for over 6 weeks (or is it already 7..), and things have finally made some progress. The medication consists of a bunch of supplements, and 3 antibiotics: Azithromycin is an antibiotic used for the treatment of a number of bacterial infections. This includes middle ear infections, strep throat, pneumonia, traveler’s diarrhea, and certain other intestinal infections. Doxycycline is an antibiotic used in the...

Needles, Borrelia and Charcot

It’s been a while since my last health update in English. so here it is. The pic above is from my previous flight to the borrelia clinic in Germany (it’s some part of Munich in the pic). There’s lots of things happening in two fronts — my original and still ongoing daily (probably) neurologic problems, and my Charcot foot (the fractured one caused by Type 1 Diabetes). I decided to launch a new probe to my original, main problems, which include but are not restricted to: Burning sensation in...
