Crossing the Valley Between the Peaks

A few days back I wrote a post about how even the common cold appears to worsen some of my symptoms. Truth be told, I believe that I may have been wrong in one of my assessments. Sure, sinus issues — when linked with my ears — definitely exacerbate my symptoms, but I no longer believe they are solely responsible for my recent regression.

So what could it be?

I remember reading how recovery is not a linear experience but rather a series of peaks and valleys. Before you can see additional improvements (the next peak) you sometimes must first regress (valley) on your journey to recovery.

I am mere hours from wrapping up round 18 of chelation, so I guess now is as good a time as any to experience my first regression. If I have learned anything, it’s that I have already seen some symptom reductions since I have started and it took them coming back for me to notice. Now I forge on to the next peak with the hopes that the payoff will be grand and the next valley less treacherous.
