I managed to squeeze behind the cabinets & get this picture when we pulled back our stove last week. It's an opening where the paint came off our wall, & shows the mold in which my landlords deny exists. My health is diminishing as I awoke to my husband also in excruciating pain & severe muscle cramping in his legs, we moved onto our porch last night & slept on the floor. We have no place to go, as we don't want to get anyone else contaminated & sick & our landlords & real estate company refuse to help us get a hotel. They are trying to say that I refused to allow the water remediation company on the premises which is a lie. I only asked them if it was safe to open the wall since we all have been sick & we do not know the mold spores count or species & THEY decided not to do any work besides dehumidify the area. It's getting ugly now & I am shocked by the lack of compassion. Once again No One takes my illness seriously or my sons or my husbands onset of symptoms. Both of us have this chronic heartburn, fatigue, anxiety, & feel our lungs are burning. My pain is shooting up my back, my jaw, legs, hips, elbows & arms. I stuttered so bad yesterday at work I could barely get my speech correct. I'm just happy my kids are out of the house. Yesterday the real estate company rebutted our claims of possible mold toxicity by saying, "every house has mold". Yes, there are mold spores everywhere in the air but you shouldn't have mold like this in your walls! We have had to hire an environmental scientist ourselves to test as I feel the trust is broken w/the owners and realty company as they have drawn a line in the sand with their lack of concern for our health & the fact that they accuse me of lying. As always I document truth. The only thing they have offered is that we can terminate our lease and move out today. We don't even know if we can take our belongings as they may be contaminated, nor do we have 3k lying around to go drop a deposit & 1st month on another house. WTF! This collective thought that MOLD is not dangerous needs to end! Mold is TOXIC & even deadly to 1 in 4 people. So tired of hearing people tell me it's not serious, & that I shouldn't be concerned. 😷😫
Prior to my current situation with #mold , I was unaware that #moldtoxicity symptoms mirror those of Fibromyalgia.
My research has been on full blast. If you are suffering from 5 or more of these symptoms and have gotten little to no relief with your Fibro meds and treatment, I urge you to investigate further.
Most regular doctors are Not fully educated on the effects of mold.
Not all people are affected as it depends on your genetic makeup, however 1 in 4 people have the markers that would be affected toxically from mold.
We had been told there was no mold in our house so I accepted that it was Fibromyalgia, now I am not sure. We are still waiting to get test results for our home but I have been getting sicker by the day since the wall in question was disturbed.
Check out the article link on my page and start researching!
No one will help you get better besides yourself. I was told by my sons pediatrician that mold toxicity doesn't exist! That is a pure uneducated lie. This is the super invisible illness, so what harm will it do to read further. I wish I had sooner. Much love and light! ⭐️✨⭐️
Driving home with my husband, I stare out & see nothing but everything as my mind streams incessant bedlam. Sleep has been sporadic with little rest; my reality spills into my subconscious & I yearn for my previous stability & standard.
I pause to wonder why the universe has chosen to treat me so unkindly this past year and a half, and why must we always be given such obstacles? Have I not sacrificed & given enough of myself & is this an answer or another questionable fork in my road of life?⬇️
Hallo ihr Lieben!
Kurz was zu meiner Person: ich bin 21 Jahre alt, komme aus Köln und studiere BWL im 3. Semester. Ich möchte erstmal, was Bilder und meinen Namen betrifft anonym bleiben. Vor 2 Wochen änderte sich für mich alles. Ich bekam die Diagnose Rheuma und das in meinem Alter 😔
Die letzten zwei Wochen waren eine harte und unglaublich emotionale Zeit und es hat sich einfach schon so viel geändert. Am Donnerstag habe ich meinen nächsten Termin beim Rheumatologen und dann wird sich entscheiden wie meine Langzeittherapie fürs Erste aussehen wird.
Ich habe meine Ernährung schon jetzt komplett umgestellt, denn einmal muss ich wegen der Krankheit jetzt auf vieles achten und zweitens will ich abnehmen um meinem Körper eine Belastung zu nehmen. Den Übergewicht wirkt sich auf eine entzündliche Krankheit wie Rheuma, einfach negativ aus. 💀🙅🏽
Ich starte mit 75kg auf 1,66m. Mein erstes Ziel ist die 6 vorne auf der Waage. Und langfristig würde ich gerne auf 62kg kommen. Das wird ein langer und sicher auch harter Weg. Ich bin gespannt wer von euch mich auf diesem Weg begleitet? 🤔 Ende August werde ich 22 Jahre alt und das ist mein Ziel um das erste Gewichtsziel zu erreichen! 💪🏼
Je suis atteinte d'hypothyroïdie qui est une maladie, certes non grave en soit, mais qui est très invalidante au quotidien. De plus c'est une maladie invisible qui ne ce voit pas physiquement et qui est donc très dure à expliquer... Elle se manifeste cependant par beaucoup de symptômes comme la frilosité, le ralentissement du corps en générale, la perte de mémoire, des crampe, de la fatigue, des symptômes dépressifs et évidemment, la prise de poids....
Beaucoup d'autres symptômes existent, mais dans ceux déjà cités ce trouvent ceux qui rendent ma motivation d'avancer très dure au quotidien...
Si vous avez la même maladie et que vous avez des conseils je suis preneuse 🌸💕
Let's stop for a moment and appreciate L I F E
This morning I realized that since 2013 this is my first #WorldIBDDAY when I feel healthy.
I got sick 7 years ago. It changed my life, taught me so much.
I just wanna forget about the pain I used to struggle with and be thankful for what it gave me.
It's an invisible sickness, people don't understand why I don't go out, why I'm moody, why I follow a weird diet. But it makes me who I am.
Having chron disease made me go vegan and helped me to fall in love with yoga.
I learned to listen to my body. It helped me to find self love and gave me huge huge self control.
There is no recipe for getting healthy, but if someone asked me what's mine, I would say travel, patience, love, yoga and balanced diet and loads of smile.
So put a smile on, and celebrate the sunshine, the rain, the warm, the cold, the hard times, the good times, and everything, because everything is easier with a smile on.
Instagram is kind of my diary. Lately life has been harder with me being sick lately. Today is a hard day because I have so much to do but no motivation. I am nauseous, tired, and in pain. Hopefully, I'll feel better soon, but for now, nap time. #naptime#sleepy#invisiblesickness#sick#diary#selfie#bedlife
I had a really bad migraine yesterday and today, I am still feeling it. I had high hopes and even tried to sleep in this morning. On top of that...my boobs hurt again. Bleeehhh....it's all in your head Christine. No really....it's literally in my head because of the headache.
Whenever I get these bad headaches, I am sensitive to light, I get nausea, my eyes get teary, and my head feels like someone is constantly pounding on it. It takes over my days and I really don't like my days getting wasted on laying around. Uggghhh.
Honestly, I used to get migraines and headaches constantly....maybe 3-4 times in a week. It sucked. I started changing my eating habits, drinking more water, drinking Shakeology, eating cleaner, and working out and it has helped minimize them tremendously. They still pop up once in a while but it's so hard to prevent especially because I stare at the computer all day long for work, my Invisalign retainers contribute when I switch them off (my teeth aches with the tightness), the dang weather is changing(Springtime is like sneeze season for me), and some smells can sometimes trigger the migraines.
These days remind me how being healthy is so important. Using this time to recover because my body and head is telling me NOPE.
