Floxiehope.com was created to give hope for healing to victims of fluoroquinolones. I hope that it has achieved that for some, many, or even most of the people who have visited the site. I am grateful that it has provided information, community, hope, and even healing to thousands of victims of Cipro/ciprofloxacin, Levaquin/levofloxacin, Avelox/moxifloxacin, and Floxin/ofloxacin. I am thankful to everyone who has contributed their story to floxiehope.com, and I encourage each and everyone who has healed from fluoroquinolone toxicity to write their story and send it to me for publication on floxiehope.com.
With that said, I’m going to take this message to a less hopeful place, and note that not everyone recovers from fluoroquinolone toxicity. There are some people who are chronically ill. There are some people who are permanently disabled by fluoroquinolones. There are some people who, tragically, die from their fluoroquinolone-induced injuries.
I am saddened and angry about the horrible injuries that fluoroquinolones cause, and the devastation they bring to the lives of too many people. The horrific effects of fluoroquinolones are truly heart-breaking.
I have several friends that are long-term “floxies” who are really struggling right now. They are suffering horribly from fluoroquinolone toxicity. Each of them has gone through ups and downs, and they have had good times and bad. At times, they have seemed to be on the road to recovery–or at least on the road to a good and happy life despite their illness. But right now, they are each going through a really hard time–a relapse. I’m scared for each of them. I have given them the insight and wisdom that I have (for whatever that’s worth), but I don’t have any answers for them, and, as we all know, there is no known cure for fluoroquinolone toxicity. I hope that each of them gets through this difficult time, and that they resume their path to recovery. That hope is all I have for them right now though, and it feels awful to not be able to give more. Each of my friends is strong, and they have been through hard times before. They will find the strength to conquer this. It’s hard though. It’s hard, it’s tragic, and it’s wrong.
The whole situation of fluoroquinolone toxicity–being poisoned by a prescription antibiotic given to unknowing patients by unknowing doctors and pharmacists–is wrong. I wish the situation was different. I wish that everyone recovered from fluoroquinolone toxicity. I wish that everyone had a healing story on floxiehope.com, and that everyone who got hurt by fluoroquinolones recovered like the people who have their stories on floxiehope.com. I wish that my friends weren’t in-pain, and getting worse–I wish that they were getting better. I hope they will. We shall see.
If you are one to send prayers for healing into the universe, please do so for my friends. Thank you.
My friend, and fellow floxie, Briana Mullins, has been accepted into a program to study epidemiology and health care at University College London. She plans to focus her studies on fluoroquinolones. Unfortunately, she’s “a bit broke” and is in-need of funds to help her to pay for the program. If you are interested in helping her, please contribute to her GoFundMe campaign through this link – https://www.gofundme.com/master039s-at-ucl. Thank you!
The Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Solution has been helpful for many people. It provides an excellent supplement protocol, and may people have credited it with their healing:
