December 20th, 2015. That is the day I first started taking the cholestyramine to help clear the mold from my system. I even remember one of the last days before Christmas, when it was time for my workout with my girls and I felt so crappy, I sat in a chair, wrapped in a blanket with gloves on, and watched THEM workout. It was hard. 🙁
December 2oth, 2016. That is the day that I was finally able to respond to the question, “How are you feeling?” with a, “I FEEL GREAT!”
It took just one year, that felt like many years. Moving out of the “moldy environments” both work and home were detrimental to the healing process and that was completed last May. Taking care of myself, taking tons of supplements, getting adequate sleep (when I was able to) and I was just waiting to finally feel like myself again.
The last, and most annoying thing to fix, was my dry, irritated eyes. Everything was still bothering them. Until last week, I thought I was getting sick, so I took some Vitamin C we had in the cupboard. WHAMO! My eyes no longer bothered me! NOW, every last thing that had been “broken” in my body was FIXED! I remember thinking that I would never get here. Thinking how frustrating of a life it would be to live this this forever. But now I am here.
It’s been a long process to say the least. Just ask my husband. Probably just as frustrating for him to have to deal with all that I was going through when he was feeling fine. I am sure there were times when he thought I was just plain crazy!
I am happy. I am healthy. I am full of energy. I am sleeping great. I am ready to tackle 2017 in a way that I was unable to the past few years.
