Today was a pretty “normal” day. We feel like things are finally starting to settle down now that we have a good place to stay. We’re getting back into our routine and starting to talk about the future more.
Ahh… That mysterious future. This illness is so unpredictable that it makes it very difficult to plan for anything. You never know when something in the environment will change and you’ll be forced to flee to another place .
My friend and mold avoidance mentor, Sara Mattson, is going through this right now. The smoke from a huge forest fire has forced her to leave her cabin in Wyoming indefinitely. I also heard about another recovered biotoxin illness sufferer who had to leave her home because a toxic mold problem in her neighbor’s house was starting to seriously affect her.
So… it doesn’t look like life is going to become predictable any time soon, but we still need to have a general idea of where we’re headed.
What we do know is that we need to pay off the van so we can start setting money aside to eventually buy land and build some sort of mold-resistant dwelling. That will probably be a small one-room metal cabin like what Sara and Peter have. Who knows though, we may end up needing two places to live so that we always have somewhere to flee to if something in the environment changes.
So crazy! I still can’t get over how absurd this all is. Being hyper-reactive to mold is like living in a parallel universe. It’s hard to believe that all of this is even real. But when I look at the results that I’m getting through extreme mold avoidance, there’s no question in my mind that the locations effect is real and that clean air is a more effective treatment for me than drugs, supplements and diet ever were. So, I’m definitely good with crazy if it means I get my life back. Even if it’s a different kind of life than what I wanted.
