Dear #spoonie friends and my new #organic #vegan #lifestyle friends. For the first time in months, I am so happy to report I FEEL GOOD!! Hearing James Brown in my head as I write this, LOL.
I have suffered from Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia for years now. Beginning of April I gave myself a swift kick in the butt and said enough is enough after a health scare. My oxygen at last month’s doctor’s visit was 87%. After being put on oxygen and about to have a flight for life helicopter ride to the hospital. Which didn’t happen I was able to get my oxygen levels back to normal and all was ok. And, on top of it all, I had good news at the same time. I BEAT PREDIABETES AND DIABETES!! I had two different diagnoses at the time. One doctor said yes i’m diabetic another said I was pre. Either way it was extremely scary.
Want to know what made the sugar levels change? I didn’t even know myself until I put two and two together. I had stopped eating white breads and pastas and white rice. It wasn’t a planned diet change, just something I did. Used Agave Nectar in my coffee instead of sugar. And this is it! I’m overjoyed with this change!
This scare and good news at the same time really changed my world. That next week I decided this is it Tara time to stop with all toxins and try to take care of my only body as well as I can. Which can be very hard being disabled at least physical exercise wise.
This was my first change, I stopped eating almost all meat products except for a little bit of chicken breast meat to put in my daily salads. Jumped back onto my spinach greens bandwagon and haven’t looked back. I am at a point now my body craves the dark greens everyday. Spinach, Kale, Chard etc… I have two huge bowls a day. I even just munch on organic baby spinach leaves with nothing on it as a snack. My body is so happy.

The number one symptom that has gotten better is my PAIN LEVELS! Have dropped a few points every other day. I was able to mark three days on the calendar last month where I wrote “low pain” for the first time since 2008. I need to lose a good amount of weight but I am not even looking at the scale. This is a matter of feeling better. The weight loss will come automatically.
My cosmetics and skincare I have also switched to completely organic, vegan and as (gluten free) as I can find. Bingo ! Gluten free is a must with Fibromyalgia! And it’s working! There are tons and tons of gluten free and fibro information pages out there.
Here is my video of getting rid of my chemical hygiene products ! All I need now is makeup I need organic, cruelty free, toxin free and as gluten free as I can get. Any companies out there willing to help me switch please Tweet me @Morticia32 or email Morticia32@hotmail.com.
I am Happy !! I am HAPPY !!!!!!!!!!!
I am so pleased to write this post, I never thought the day would come ! If I can do it, you can do it too !!! One change at a time!! Love you all.
