Feeling Good

I am feeling so much better. I honestly don't even believe it.  Of course, still taking my stress test just to be sure all is okay.  One never knows.

It appears to be due to the mold toxicity "shit".
You see I am cleaning out my body of this toxic stuff through acupuncture and herbals. It is working so well. I have so much less inflammation. My hands are no longer puffy as are my face and body. I am down 1 size in clothing and I did nothing different in eating. That is all in the last month.  BUT, my doctor suggested to continue this method but she wanted me to take this Rx that was originally given to me to 'help me along' (her exact words) I listened to her. But it was too much too fast. It was the ultimate die off fighting back with high blood pressure to almost make me die. 

After the hospital, my doctor realized what she told me was too much for me and told me to stop immediately and get this out of my system. Of course, I did. But it takes a while. So hopefully when these mold toxins are out of me my bp will be normal or low again as it always was without medication. Everyone thinks so at least. 

My face is no longer swollen and looks normal again. My rings are too large and as I said my jeans are one size smaller. I hope to continue this pace. Slow and steady is better for me and I am okay having this take 6-12 months as they originally told me it would take. Boy was my doctor apologetic. She's called me at home twice now to check on me. I know she feels responsible.

I slept a great deal last night. Today I have energy. I walked Izzy the normal length and I felt fine, not 100% but so close. I can breathe pretty well and I have no chest pains. I could dance a jig.

Mold is a bitch, isn't it? It takes so long to get a diagnosis (years for me) and it will take a long time to rid itself from me. I don't wish this on anyone I like and love!

My husband is hovering like an old Italian Grandma. He made me my favorite, Chicken soup. My God the man makes great chicken soup. He put things away in the dishwasher and we may never find these things again but he did it without me asking. He did a load of laundry but dried some tops I never dry. I have a feeling one will only fit now over my left side leaving my right boob exposed, arm and belly exposed.  Then again maybe that was the man's plan. 

He told me proudly that he cleaned the stovetop. It's an ongoing joke here that when he tells me he cleaned up the kitchen after he cooks he never really does. You see to him that means he put things away. The island is always a mess, the stovetop is a mess and not cleaned, etc. But he really did this time. I wanted to say, See, that wasn't so hard, was it? But I kept my mouth shut and just said, "Thank you."

If I made a move last night, or a sound, he'd jump and look at me and ask if I was okay?  Can I get you anything? Are you comfortable?  He hovers.  It's cute.
He told me last night I can't die because he will never find anything ever again.
True! Oh so true!
But I'm not going anywhere, too ornery to die. That is the only time 64 is young you know. 

So that is that. But I left my glasses at the acupuncturist last night. 
They are not open today.
So I ran to Walgreens this morning and had to buy some readers. I couldn't go all day without being able to see the computer, my phone, or read anything. Tomorrow I can go pick up my glasses. 

I'm going to leave you with my meme of the week.

YESSS! To everything and all of it.

Cruisin Paul said...

I remember when my wife called for an ambulance for me. I was so sick that the doctors thought I had had a stroke again. I couldn't walk at all. I was in the hospital for over a week until one of the doctors found that my body had a load of my pills and had made my body completely toxic. Toxicity was destroying me. Thank God they were able to find out that was making you sick. I'm so happy that you're back to normal and feeling much better. Now I feel much better about this. Keep healthy Peg.

Julie H said...

I'm so glad you are feeling better! My husband would probably be watching TV while I died in the other room.

Olga said...

Glad to hear that things are improving -- even Rick's ability to clean the kitchen!

Susan from the Pacific Northwest said...

Wow!!! So glad you found an actual cause that can be dealt with. YAY!!!

Ami said...

SO glad to read that you're feeling better.

Abby said...

This is all such good news! Well... except for pain, hospital, scary symptoms, etc...

JanF said...

Very happy to hear you are feeling so much better!

Keep this ball rolling back to good health again. So glad you had come good news in this post.

Arkansas Patti said...

Pretty sure it was just the great news but it may have been your fun interactions with Rick but I am still smiling. Keep healing lady and careful what they give you. I just had a toxic reaction to a new inhaler and know how that can make you go south in a hurry.
Keep letting the big guy spoil you and be totally well soon.

I've got the airthings 6-way detector. I don't know if I want to pay for another one just to get the mold detector.

Mary said...

So glad you are feeling better.I’m not familiar with mold toxicity being like that. Wow. I was wondering if this mold is in your home or are you saying in was in some medication you had been on for awhile. I hate it when doctors want you to take so many pills..
Again glad you’re feeling better.

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

grace - :-) thanks hopefully you'll tell me the same soon.

Paul - we are going to be okay!! have a great weekend

Julie - that made me spit my coffee.

Olga - I fear it won't last so enjoying it while I can.(rick)

Ami - thank you
Abby - it is good news.

JanF Thanks!!

jean thank you

Patti- scary for you wasn't it? Crazy! Thanks for the kind words.

Mary - Mold was found in my faucet in the sink. IN the faucet, it was removed, all mold is gone. I am no longer cooking with mold toxin or drinking it. I am on a protocol to remove this from my body and it takes 6-12 months. When another pill was added it was too much for my body. and then high bp almost killed me. Alls good now. Whew

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

Mike, I wonder if that would have even worked since it was in the faucet. Although some mold was in the cabinet below. Does it work for your other "air things"

Brian said...

So glad the culprit was found & dealt with! And still traceable back to the mold issue - incredible stuff. Glad you're on the mend - keep up the good work!

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

Brian, amazing this mold shit. Man, it almost killed me. When I told the doctors in the hospital that I was dealing with mold they all gasped and said ooh that's hard to rid itself from you, but yet none of them saw the connection. I felt so good last night I had a glass of wine. First glass of wine in 4 weeks. It tasted great but also hit me like a ton of brick. I guess I am now a light weight. :-)

Mike said...

Now you're going to make me remember what the six things are...

I actually got it for the Radon and CO2. The CO2 levels are supposed to be below 1000ppm. Anything above 1000ppm creates a sick building syndrome which happened when I was working years ago.

Our house normally runs 200 - 300 ppm (I think). But when our power was out and there were 3 of us in the living room hanging around the flashlight and radio, the reading went up to 1800ppm over a day. (The unit was right near us.)

And I've taken radon readings with the kits that you send in. 4ppm is the reading to stay below. The kits always said we were 3.8. But this unit is a constant readout. Our radon can drop into the 2ppm range or jump up to 7ppm for a day. My guess is it depends on the wind pressure drawing air out of the house and up through the basement. Most of the time it hangs right around 4ppm.

First of all, yipee! So glad you are feeling well enough to take Izzy out! Very cute that Rick is so attentive. Romeo is good to me that way too, even though I usually tell him "no, for the thousandth time I am fine and don't need anything". Lol

Secondly I'm sorry you have to have the awful comment from "Anonymous" ~ who is obviously too cowardly to write this shameful comment and leave their real name. A**hole.

RO said...

OMG! I had no idea so much was was going on, but I'm so glad you're on the mend. I'm thrilled that your doctor is really focusing on really taking care of you to insure you are truly healed. Had to be a scary time. You know you're with the right person when they really clean stuff up around the house when you can't do it,(lol) and I totally love that Rick is totally focused on you. We'll all be entertained when you wear that sweater, by the way.(lol) Hugs and more hugs, RO
