Well, yesterday was a pretty rough day in terms of getting to feel that anxiety again and the fear it brings with it (dear Goddess no, anything but this! Well, anything but brain fog!). Note: the brain fog did NOT return, so that's a win! Still lucid and clear. Which is honestly my favorite. I'll take pain over brain fog any day. Which is good I guess, because I still have plenty of pain! It seems to be mostly concentrated in my lower back and sciatic area on my left side, and then there's some in my shoulders, to a much lesser degree.
So back to a little before square one on the heavy metal chelators, because now I'm even eliminating cilantro and parsley. Why, you ask, when I was tolerating them before? Well, those two are the ones that move the metals from the spots they're lodged in (as I understand it, according to the Medical Medium community). And dulse and spirulina (I haven't looked into or tried the barley grass yet) are the binders that absorb them and then move them out of the body. There's probably more to it than that, and I probably need to spend some time really researching these things for awhile before I make this attempt again.
But I'm not going to be ingesting the "movers" without the "binders", because I don't want to just move this stuff around to another spot in my body (or brain). No thanks. I want it out!
My entire day today was SO stressful - let's just say landscaping FAIL that we paid big money for, with lots of back and forth with the owner who has never been here or seen the property or the work they did, but still swearing by his crew and taking their word over ours. So much stress that I was unable to sleep restfully, despite praying and asking the angels for help AND meditating, or trying to anyway. Even reading before bed until my eyes were so tired I couldn't hold them open didn't help me sleep, because as soon as I stopped reading the processing of events and reel of repeated stress thoughts about it came back. UGH!
I can't even.
So despite that, that which would usually cause a HUGE flare, I'm actually doing not too bad. I mean, I'm still completely stressed out and apparently will be until this finds some kind of resolve, but my energy is all right, I don't seem to be in any more of a flare than usual, and other than NOT being able to turn off the thoughts of stress about this, I'm okay. That doesn't make sense when I write it out, but I KNOW my body, and I would have been completely taken out by this situation just a few weeks ago. Trust me when I say this is good progress.
