So, I am very happy to say that, lately, I have actually been feeling really good. Detoxing again was a really good thing, and it seems to have re-set my system again. I'm hoping--ultimately--that it was the final necessary detox for me, but--if not--that it will give me even more time before my systems start short-circuiting again. As of now...I feel great. I feel as normal as I think I will probably be. What I mean by that is that the only symptoms that I still have to deal with right now are the vision loss and the joint/back pain. I have just come to accept that those two things just may be permanent damage. If so, I have to accept that...and I will. I can at least function with that. Luckily, all of the other symptoms seem to currently be gone. I can't tell you how happy it makes me to be able to say that. There was a day once when I didn't know if I ever would.
I wanted to show you something, though....
I still have to actively work for my health. My body is not at a point where it is naturally strong or working the way that it normally would. I have to feed my body supplementation for it to run at a level that most can do without it. For 20 months now, I have to fuel my body with extra supplementation every day. It's a pain....yes....but I do it because it makes a big difference for me. Eventually, my systems should rebuild themselves and be able to run correctly without them, but for now, I do what I need to do to feel good. I thought maybe you would like to see what that is.
This is one day of supplements for me. Yep....one day:
It's surprising that I don't sound like a change purse when I walk, huh? :-)
I'm not posting this to discourage anyone. Some seem to get better without all of this, and some need even more interventions than I do. You just never know. I'm thankful that I haven't needed any surgeries or anything--many have. So for now....I will happily take these and be so grateful that I have the opportunity and ability to do it for myself. I'm just posting this to further get the word out that this is something that the Mirena can do to you. Almost two years after removal, I have to do this--every day--just to have my body work normally. When I take them, I feel great....when I don't, I slip fast. At least these are all natural, whole-foods supplements that feed my body in a healthy way. No more synthetic poisons for this girl if at all possible. One day, I'm convinced that I won't need all of this. I'm already celebrating that day. For now, this is part of my daily fight back.
Thanks, Mirena. Keep fighting, ladies. I'm right there with you.
