Congratulations on your new baby!
I don't post on here much, in fact this may be my first post, but I read a lot. I've learned a TON from the members here and when I'm here, its the only time in the world I feel sane anymore, but I'm pretty far gone :-(
So....I know what I'm going to say right now seems contradictory, hypocritical even, and a lot of readers might disagree with me, but....
For your son, please, just try, as hard as you possibly can, not to become obsessed with this.
I almost wanted to say do it- forget you ever saw that in the toilet, walk away right now and never look back. But then I realized, if you're here, if you've already been to your dr, it's too late to ignore it all.
But please don't let your fear of this killing you, or infecting your husband or baby, PREVENT you from living your life with them, enjoying them....taking care of them.
Are you sick? What caused you to seek help? Is it something that keeps you from living a normal life? You don't have to answer, just think about it. Because if it was just the yucky thought, after reading something online perhaps, that you might have Candida, or worms....it, this is so hard for me to even write right now, in the middle of the hell my life has become. I'm just trying to warn you that the WRONG treatment can make this all SO MUCH WORSE. and once you start you can't just stop, and trying to undo the damage from your own mistakes is so scared and all consuming. This takes over your life and you have a life worth living. People who love and need you. You CAN be happy. You might be sick, but you were HEALTHY ENOUGH TO MAKE THAT BABY! Assuming your pregnancy was normal, you and your son came through just fine, and he was born without birth defects, that's saying a lot! I totally advocate taking charge of your own health, and agree that doctors and lab tests are worthless, but the drugs are not.
In fact, when it comes to parasites, pharma is your only option. Try not to obsess too much over what kind of worm it is right now: the pictures took pretty convincing to support the round worm "diagnosis," plus they're common and easily transmitted. Don't mess around with herbs, and risk scattering, or re-activating cysts. Just order you the drugs you need, make sure you have plenty of them because the first round only kills the adults: eggs will continue to hatch, larva will mature sexually and lay eggs themselves, so plan for at LEAST three rounds of meds, and you don't want to wait until you realize your sick again because then you're starting over, and the worms might develop resistance. And you'll be waiting for meds to ship while they lay more eggs.
Yeah...ok then! I should have just posted a link to ICUs roundworm protocol. She seems to know her stuff, and she attempts to fill the much needed void between "scared, desperate, hopeless, doomed" and "all, or at least much, better," that our doctors, and perhaps our own pursuance of peer reviewed medical journals regarding the few parasitized patients they were forced to treat, leave us with. Because unless you are literally ON THE OPERATING TABLE and the surgeon opens you up and finds a worms instead of the tumor he was expecting, doctors won't even entertain the idea of diagnosing parasites. And even then, the worm might have to wiggle out and bite him before he's convinced that's what it is!
