On your quest for healing from fluoquinolone toxicity you run the risk of getting lost in the actual quest itself. Attempting too much, like online community involvement, trying to stay on top of what works and what doesn’t, watching who gets better and who does not, and looking for the latest news and research, and even advocacy, can consume a tremendous amount of your time and become depressing and stressful. This can exacerbate your symptoms. If you are not careful, you run the risk of believing that deliverance from your toxicity is entirely dependent on sources outside of yourself. Instead, strive to seek a healthy balance. Like others that have recovered from chronic health conditions, the centerpiece of your healing program must be self-empowerment, not self-abandonment.
Don’t Get Lost
