Let me start out by saying that I was a bit skeptical of the IV Therapy. It all started ten years ago when I came down with Mono. Upon recovering, well, I should probably rephrase that, I never actually recovered from my bought with Mono. It was almost like the exhaustion and fatigue associated with mono never left my body. I have been to countless doctors to no avail. I was finally diagnosed with narcolepsy – and given oral medication to take every single day for the rest of my life… how daunting. Fast forward ten years, and I hear about IV Therapy. To be honest, I felt as though I had nothing to lose. I had tried just about every medication and been to every doctor in the area, so I gave this new IV thing a shot.
Don’t get me wrong, my narcolepsy medicine helps, but I think of it more like a band-aid. I am still tired, just not as tired. I started my IV Therapy journey with the an Energy and Fatigue drip. I was hoping to jump out of the chair and be bouncing off of walls. I was thinking my apprehension or skepticism was justified. One doesn’t really notice not being tired. The nurse brought me back to reality when she explained that what I was expecting was more like a sugar or caffeine high and that’s just not what this is. This provides a prolonged boost of energy. Then I started to realize something. Over the next few days I did have more energy and I was getting more done.
The drips really have brought me back to my pre-mono, pre-narcolepsy self. I now get them every two or three weeks and it’s been an absolute game changer.
I mostly appreciate that I am putting vitamins and nutrients in my body that are good for me and that’s what is making the difference!
