Still battling the big wave

Dante, happy inside the hyperbaric oxygen chamber
I haven’t written in some time because we’re still battling the big wave that hit us a few weeks back.  Over five weeks ago, we stopped the MMR clearing because Dante began a detox period triggered by the clearing.  We have seen this before.  It is a tough period with little visible progress until the end.  Over a week after the last MMR 1M dose, Dante began to fall unexpectedly.  Within a week these falls became more frequent; they also began to look to us like mini sudden seizures.  He would drop this head forward suddenly and fall on his bottom, totally awake when he hit the ground.  The neurologist confirmed that Dante was having myoclonic seizures and his seizure medication was increased.

Trying to ride the big wave

The Great Wave off Kanagawa, by Hokusai
I am very thankful to have tried homeopathy for myself.  As we go through this healing process with Dante, I need all the patience and grace I can scrape up, and that is what homeopathy helps me have.  The way I think of it is that when I am facing this gigantic stressful wave, homeopathy helps me ride the wave instead of sink within it.  It helps me stay afloat, above the dark depths of depression.

At this point in time my husband and I feel like we’re navigating a huge gigantic wave and trying to keep Dante and ourselves inside our tiny boat.  We are trying to not flip over!  My remedy and my husband’s remedy are working.  We have actually had some very good moments throughout this stressful period.
