Some of you may know that I have been sort of sick for years, and that I’ve been testing for things as I can afford (no health insurance). So far nothing has come up as a reason for all my ailments, so my doctor sent me to have some environmental testing done for heavy metals and molds. I was most concerned about the mold, but that only came up at a very low level, however… aluminum, cadmium, mercury, lead and uranium levels all tested high in my body.
It’s a bit of a revelation… and explains why my liver and spleen are overworked and not functioning well, and now it’s time for some major detoxing. I’m preparing myself for a 2 month dietary cleanse, incorporating oral chelation rather than iv form. That means I’ll be going back to my strict no-nonsense diet of veggies / seeds / nuts / lean meats / some fruits. ugh. Not looking forward to it, but I really want to feel better, so it’s a must.
That said, I’ll be throwing myself into sewing to take my mind off certain things *like chocolate*. Last weekend the PMQG sponsored an All Day Sew, and it was awesome! This time my daughter came with me (how cool is that?) to work on a cosplay costume for Sakura-Con. It was great seeing her work on her own project (rather than have me do it all) and get great tips from other guild members. I was a proud mama! She is attempting to make these costumes for her and her friend:
Should be an interesting project to watch!
Annnnd… I’m almost done quilting my dragon quilt 😉
