Worse before it gets better!
« on: January 12, 2022, 07:15:57 pm »
A number of us have been having really intense symptoms lately. Makes me wonder if this has gotten worse for us because we are getting to our final healing. I know for me I stopped having Windows after 9 months. So the last 10 and a half months I think I had barely a window. But the last month or so has been way more intense. I'm hoping all of us are getting near the final healing. Any thoughts?

Hi LL, I have also noticed that there are quite a few of us in the same timeframe who are experiencing awful and rapid cycling symptoms.  I have read from different sources that this is possibly a sign that this is the last big wave before homeostasis is reached!!!!  Oh, how I wish this to be true! It is so unfair that when our bodies and minds are in a weakened state from a long, harsh BWD battle of many months, we are thrust back into an almost acute state.  This is simply inhumane and tortuous😱😱😱😱

I just keep hanging on to the memory of my wonderful windows as they are the true indicators that full healing does happen.

Hugs,

GG

I find it interesting that many of our symptoms have intensified since we got our Covid vaccines. Just a thought.

[...]:  I have been thinking about this as well.  It seems that lots of us around the 19-22 month timeframe are experiencing some intense symptoms.  I had a terrible night last night,  it was very much like the nights I had in the early day, waking up every few hours with intense anxiety and soaking wet.  I do think we are nearing the ďendĒ or getting pretty darn close!  It is really hard to stay positive but I am trying!!!!

GG, [...] and [...],

I appreciate your thoughtful replies. This would just be so wonderful if we are headed into our final healing. Hoping and praying that this is the case. We have to keep the faith and stay strong and take one day at a time or one hour or minute at a time. I'm hoping we all turn the corner very very soon. Hugs!

We must be getting to the end......where else is there to go????

[...], I had a very bad reaction to my first two Pfizer vaccines, and for my booster I was given the same strength as the first two.  Not so for the Moderna, which is given at a lower strength (my hubby got the Moderna and had not one symptom from any of his doses) than the first two.  Why that is I do not know.  I do know that I have not felt well since the end of November with more waves than windows.  I am only now beginning to feel more stable and in a pretty good window.  Letís see what tomorrow brings.

Hugs,

GG

GG,

It's a very good point we have to be coming to the end of this journey very soon. I like that positive thinking. Thank you! And hugs,

I am determined that we will all get there!  It is so lovely in the windows, truly almost like Xanadu, and now that I have tasted and breathed it, I will do everything in my power to get there and stay there!!!!!!!

GG,

That really sounds good. I'm so looking for a window to find me. I would be so happy. But I'm also looking forward to about 10 at night when I get a bit of a reprieve and I'm hoping that it comes tonight because I've been struggling all day. It's great that you've gotten so many windows and I think they're returning for you. Hugs!

I am in the same boat as you and I am so sorry for everyone who is going through this! After a period of more manageable months and hope returning I was slammed intensely and worse than acute (which was still pretty bad).

I am praying everyday, please universe let this be the last wave to end all waves. The final battle with the beast. It feels so intense because as you said, after being 16 months in a very rough shape, the body isnít as strong and everything is felt 1000%. I keep hoping that my spirit is strong enough.

I have heard about these 16-20 month waves. And that after that the healing started to escalate quite rapidly with a few odd waves thrown in from time to time but nowhere near as intense. Ah, my waves were SO manageable up until this point. How I took it for granted!

Maybe the nervous system has had enough time to build itself back and is now trying to to fire everything at once to test where it still needs to be worked on. That is just a theory.
