Dear Mikie and others: I am on my second 6 weeks round of antibiotics. Lots of dramatic herxing that convinced me that maybe after 19 years of fibro/chronic fatigue I may be addressing the cause rather than symptoms. My husband had a heart tranplant 11 months ago and is doing well. One of the articles I read here last week mentioned transmitting it to your partner. This is of extreme concern to me now as my husband is immune suppressed. How contagious am I when my eyese and nose start burning and running? When I cough? Last time round I kept sanitizing the bathroom I share. SHould we sleep together? What about sex? I believe that I passed this on to My two teenagers who were very sick for two years with my symptoms 7 years ago when my husband's heart began failing . No doctor ever wanted to treat us as a family or deal with connections between us. (Except that I had modeled an unhealthy lifestyle and was too lenient in allowing them to study at home. In the end they both graduated with their class and are now at university.) Question: The transplant nurse had no clue about this when I talked to her Friday. Where can I go for info? The herxing is affecting my eyes so the computer is VERY hard at the moment. So if you can steer me right I'd appreciate it!!!
