Histamine attacks & LDN

June 1, 2019

I have been on Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) for many years for my fibro & arthritis pain and it has worked wonders. Now I am fighting urticaria, which turns into infected rashes. Doc said my antibodies are attacking me. If correct LDN stimulates my immune system? Does this mean if I stay on LDN & will it cause my body / antibodies to attack me more? Big question do I go off it and suffer horrific pain from all my arthritis and fibro? I have been off LDN about a week for some tests and my pain is beyond.

My Doc shared that I cannot be properly tested for histamine attacks or Mast Cell because I have to live on 1 to 5 antihistamines daily.  She said to test correctly I would have to go off all antihistamines for a week before testing & she doesn’t want me to go off antihistamines and end up in serious trouble.  I am glad she is watching over me.

My book “The Secret Life of Hidden Disabilities”

October 15, 2017

Thank you to the UFCW local 135 “The Worker” August 2017 news letter and Communications Director Lori Kern for interviewing me and my book. This last year I had to returned to the union as I do yearly for my pension papers. Lori and I met while I was in lobby with Chloe by my side.  We spoke about me helping a friend with her dog becoming a service dog.

Well a week later, I receive this awesome call that from Lori asking me if she could interview on me and about my book since I had been a retail food clerk and now a retiree. I was beyond elated, and happy, and said, “Yes!”
