Life is short, death is shorter.

Recommended Posts


Recently, I took my Economics exam and as I was leaving, I gave my friend "Dap" (Handshake if you will) as I left. He is a co-worker and friend I met this year.

2:45 pm I am driving on route 55 (a local road) and I notice something odd. There is a stop ahead with candles of flame. I am told to take a detour due to a serious accident

6:00pm. I get off work, I open my phone to a text message saying "Joey is dead"

6:30pm. I get home, and go on facebook, and found information about the accident

6:35pm. Support groups everywhere, everyones status is "R.I.P." Joey.

There was a head-on collision involving two of my fellow classmates, both I was friends with. One passed away (Joey) and the other is still in the hospital. I have never felt this feeling in my heart, a sinking, falling feeling.

R.I.P. Joey, a friend, a college, a co-worker.

You will be missed.

      That's some new info for me you mentioned about talking valtrex during the first month of infection. When I got mine, it was after heavy nights of partying (that I don't normally do) in the southern islands so my immunity was definitely dead. I was still a student back then.. I didn't start Acyclovir until a month after or so.  For mixing BHT with coconut oil, I just added them together into a glass pipette bottle and put the jar in a bowl of almost boiling water. It worked very easily to create a 250mg/ml solution.  I might give BHT another try, I quit if after 2 weeks because I didn't get any effects from it. Might give it another go at 1g/day.  Root canalled tooth.. is this because you get the outbreaks in your mouth? I also have a root canalled tooth but the OBs are genital.

      Yes, it was affecting my thyroid, I can feel it swell when the infection comes on.  It is known as hashimoto's.  The immune system inadvertently attacks the thyroid tissue in a collateral damage type effect.  It can be caused by any of the 8 types of herpes virus.  I believe that my infection is in my vagus nerve.  Anyways, it has been hell, but I have it to a manageable level now.  Steven also said that the recurring infection could be due to a root canalled tooth.  I had a root canal job done on a molar but never got around to putting a crown on it, so that could be causing some reactivation as well.  I am planning to pull it out soon.

      Thanks Quest, so I just googled this and it appears that heating does break it down.  I have been heating at the lowest heat that my gas burner will burn at, and just to the point where I can get it to dissolve, but it appears I have been inactivating a percentage of the bht.  Will have to figure out a better way.   I think heating to 100 degrees celsius likely will not inactivate too much.  According to this study, heating it to 175 degrees for 2 hours only inactivated 15-30% of the bht.  I think I read the way to heat it was inside a jar placed into a pot of boiling or simmering water.  Will try making a batch that way.  https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11746-000-0147-9

      Valtrex is worthless against my strain anyways, it does next to nothing, and it irritates my kidneys, so for some strains it will do nothing period.  It is criminal that there are vaccines that have been developed that can't get funding from big pharma.  Seriously hate big pharma.

      To save everyone time in translating, the article is about Trivalent and contains nothing “new” to share.  However, fingers crossed on this one :-)
