Recap- I just feel terrible, day in day out, day, Is this ever going to end?
It’s now November 2017 and I’m STILL recovering, there’s been ups and downs, months when I’ve had a 2-3 hr nanna nap every day as I’m so fatigued and other months when I haven’t. Dr’s have moved to other countries then moved back. I’ve added a Kinesiologist into the mix and whilst overall I’m getting better, It still feels like a roller coaster.
Whilst I’m definitely more resilient, I can still go down quickly if something upsets my system and I never quite know what that’s going to be.
I still rely on my Chiropractor heavily as I’m so much better and pain-free when in alignment. I still have to watch my Iron levels as they diminish very quickly & I have to make sure what I’m putting in my body is quality.
I think I’ve nearly perfected Low Tox Living & feel so much better now I’ve removed the majority of toxic chemicals from my immediate space. It gives me great piece of mind knowing my body isn’t being impacted by trying to process these.
Have you noticed how much this has been in the spotlight- the truth about these things is slowly coming out. I was watching a video the other day showing what tea bags are made of, they have melted plastic particles in them, which are dissolving in with your tea, I mean seriously, where does it end!
To be honest, its’ been 4 years now and there are days where I can’t be bothered with it anymore. I get sick and tired of always being the detective in my health, but no one knows my body like me. I have to play an integral role. So its an integration of my own intuition and learnings combined with some top-notch experts.
I have come a long way, it’s just been at a really slow pace so if this is you too- for some recoveries, this is how it goes….. 2 steps forward, 1 step back, 3 steps forward, 2 steps back, then 4 steps forward, actually 4 steps forward might be a bit of a stretch.
I’m out and about more, living more of life, seeing more and more peaks of the old me but still get worried and impatient that it’s still a progressively slow recovery.
Whilst I still don’t look like the images in here due to the weight gain, I know I’m moving closer to it every day and I remind myself it will be the last part of my healing as it’s near impossible to lose weight if your body systems are out of balance, especially your thyroid. So when I start losing weight like (dare I say it) a “normal person”, I will be very happy. It will be a big sign that things are moving and shaking in the right direction. I still have some symptoms but not 38! and the ones remaining have improved immensely.
So what have I been doing? – well I built this website which was ahhh not easy, I’m no tech head & If you follow me on Facebook or read some of my blog posts in here, you’ll already know that I’ve been heavily immersed in the medicinal application of Essential Oils for my own health and wellbeing which also developed into helping others.
I’ve found the science and results of current medical studies on the power of plants in this application truly fascinating & refreshing, given the amount of drugs I was initially taking. I was thrilled when I successfully replaced some of them with plant magic.
Learning all these new things has also been really great for my brain to kick-start it back into action. It wasn’t that long ago I had brain fog so badly I couldn’t remember my own address! Its’ also been a welcomed distraction of not always having to put so much attention on me.
This of course also had a flow-on effect that has introduced me to many new people and of course, I’ve made some new lifelong friendships. I encourage you to read more about Essential Oils HERE if this interests you ♥
I feel it’s time to make this site LIVE and keep on moving forward, onwards and upwards….. now to get the rest of the site working so I can do that 😐
