Julie Rehmeyer gave me a pep talk today. She said the same things my mom, dad, and husband keep saying, but it felt so great to hear it from a fellow moldie who has gotten so much better from extreme mold avoidance. She reminded me of how far I have come and that I haven’t really been doing Erik Johnson-style avoidance for that long.
She also said that I don’t need a huge medical breakthrough to get to a whole new level of resilience and added the encouragement:
“In another year, you will be so much more robust.”
Thanks, Julie! <3
(If you haven’t read Julie’s book, it is SO AMAZING! I have already heard many stories of it healing hearts and helping to mend relationships from the mold avoiders I am coaching and mentoring.)
You have probably noticed that Julie is re-he-heally smart. Like wowsa, she is smart. I have discovered that having a conversation with her is a good test of how brain fogged I am. And as we talked, I could definitely tell I was STILL feeling the effects of the fire. Ugh.
I gotta get my bedding cleaned up! I thought.
We ended our conversation, and two minutes later I absolutely crushed my phone. I slammed it so hard in the door of my van that I shattered the screen and bent the battery.
As the day wore on, I cut myself twice. I dropped and broke a brand new BPA-free 2-gallon water bottle. I slammed and banged my way around my campsite like an awkward, clumsy puppy. I completely forgot to eat lunch.
After a lackluster dinner of 3-layer bean dip with broken chips crumbled on top, I finally called it a day. Too worn out to deal with chores, I left my food on the table and my dishes totally NOT cleaned up.
Instead of being responsible, I just washed my head, put on my pajamas, crawled into bed and then binge-watched How I Met Your Mother until I fell asleep.
(Not surprisingly, a raccoon showed up and ate the rest of my dinner a couple of hours later. Woops!)
