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.

Progress and Pain

It’s 2020 now, and time to update you with what’s happening regarding my health.

This includes middle ear infections, strep throat, pneumonia, traveler’s diarrhea, and certain other intestinal infections. Doxycycline is an antibiotic used in the...

Berlin, Germany

My trip to Berlin was already something like the 10th time I’ve been there in my life. I’ve always liked the city, and this time was no exception. Part of me would even want to move there some day. Since my muscle weaknesses have gone worst, it was a good thing that this trip was not a solo trip. Wouldn’t have managed it all by myself, or at least it would’ve been a massively different trip, so thanks, travelpartner! The flights were done as nonstops from Helsinki (HEL) to...

Augsburg, Germany: FINALLY a Diagnosis!

Within about one month, I’ve been flying from Finland to Germany a couple of times solely in matters regarding my health. By using one of my new top 5 favorite airlines, AirBaltic, the journeys have been with 1 stop flights via Riga, Latvia. Everything on the flights has worked fine, and I think that I love the A220 planes they have :). Private Drivers On the first trip I got myself from Munich Airport to Augsburg with trains (Deutsche Bahn), which takes about 1,5 hours with a change at...

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...
