Seadog, I'm sorry that you have to go through this but glad that I am not the only one.
This reinforces my belief that we are not experiencing voodoo. This is is a viral or bacterial infection, I am convinced of it, though I have spent weeks using some of the following search strings on google to figure it out: "asymptomatic carrier infectious disease" "dizziness malaise nausea" "MRSA reinfection" etc. and still come up empty handed.
And no amount of Vitamin C seems to stop it. I took 20 lypo c's today and close to 20 grams of oral C and I still feel weak, dizzy, and nauseous. I am up so late because of the BT effect of the oral C.
I refuse to take antibiotics or be sick for a week or two and drop all my activities to spend time with them, however much it may hurt their feelings. This was the last time. If they feel offended that's too bad. I have already made suggestions that they be tested to see if they are carriers of something. My father spent a lot of time in the hospital and rehab facility for his stroke and complications and my stepmother was there with him. I visited them too although they live far away and I am caring for my chronically ill spouse (a whole other story) and running a business at the same time.
I wish somebody would read this post and give us a clue as to what might be going on. The symptoms hit me within hours of having contact and worsen every hour until it peaks within a week and then lessens off.
All this week I have been studying infectious diseases and it is an appalling story what mankind has had to deal with. People today do not understand that these sicknesses can spread off a damp towel or on the droplets of a sneeze. We as a western society have become so used to seeing sickness as unusual and tend to blame it on the sick person, whereas in the past it was more common to be sick and dying or to know the sick and dying in nearly every house in the town. Babies and children commonly died before reaching adolescence, and living past 40 or 50 was uncommon.
People need to wake up. The Black Plague, leprosy, cholera, malaria, smallpox, and HIV are not caused by casting spells but by real viruses and bacteria.
If there is bad juju coming at me when I see my father and stepmother I can't imagine where it came from as they are ordinary people (he was a real estate broker and she a schoolteacher), has there ever been bad blood? sure but it happens in all families and nothing unusual has occurred. Have I ever suffered from an illusory illness? Doubtful. I have a strong will and I don't make myself sick for the heck of it and I fight any illness with every weapon I can get my hands on.
But I have an open mind. If waving some burning herbs around would take care of this problem tell me where to buy them.
