From June 7th until June 20th, I was able to take my medications to treat my Lyme disease symptoms about every 12 hours or so. I would take one pill at around 7:30 in the morning … and I would take another pill at around 7:30 in the evening. I was able to crush my pills by putting the pills into a small Ziploc bag … and then I would crush the pill with a special hammer or something.
Then, after I crushed the pills, I would put them into my yogurt and I would mix them up until I was unable to see the pill. Then I would take the pill while I was eating my yogurt. At various times during those two weeks, I was almost unable to taste the pill because it was mixed in with the yogurt fairly well. I also put the crushed pill into a cup of soy milk in the last days of my treatment. My rash, which was on my right leg, would slowly begin to fade away. The rash was gone before I was able to take every pill that was in the bottle.
Hopefully I won’t be able to go through it again for a while. It was one of the worst experiences that I have ever had to go through.
Tomorrow, I will tell you how I’ve been able to stop myself from getting tick bites and/or Lyme disease while walking outdoors around my neighborhood.
