Today, I feel better. I got the rest I needed.
Thankfully, my work is extremely flexible. I do not go to any office and I don't have a boss hanging over my head. I can take days when I need.
I'm a Building Performance Consultant. I go to people's homes all over the US. Using diagnostic equipment, I comprehensively test for combustion safety, energy leakage, and MOLD.
Mold is actually a huge problem and I know for myself IS a contributor to my illness. Mold does not have to be black and slimy to be toxic. There are 5 different types of toxic molds that live in homes and like ticks have several life stages taking different forms of itself.
I believe the home, the place you live is an extension of oneself. This is the place you go to 'recharge' yourself, where you can just be.
If it is INVISIBLY toxic, then no matter what you do, this toxic place you call home will never let you recover.
50% if the homes in the US are "Sick".
Sick home, Sick body... get it?
So, I can get very busy, in and out of other people's sick homes. For the most part, I can handle it because I use very high grade respirator and filters. Yet, the traveling in itself, drains me. Especially where I stay overnight. In January, I had 4 business trips and an out of town wedding. Too much! One of those trips, I stayed at the most run down hotel I've ever seen. I should have went to a different hotel, but I got there at close to midnight and was supposed to leave at 7 the next morning. The travel schedule can be grueling.
I do this work because I love it. Many of my clients are much sicker than I and I feel that because of my journey, I have a deep compassion for theirs. It makes me want to find the best way possible to heal the home for them, so that they can heal themselves.
Hey, thanks for letting me vent. Yesterday was the lowest I've been in a long time. I just couldn't move. Slept for 11 hours and feel much better. I might have 4 hours to work on the computer, then another nap. :)
Blessed is rejuvenating health.
