After a year of waiting, I finally got my follow-up mercury test. Last year’s major mercury poisoning scare on top of Hashimoto’s and detoxing, took it’s toll but I was finally emotionally ready to see the details and results of my year long detox. So, this is going to be a quick “sharing” post on the results of that test. Before I reveal the results, it’s important to express how incredibly anxious I was because I have heard that a person has to do a lot of detoxing to get mercury out of their system and to top it off, many people can never see enough change in their mercury levels to brag about.
Big bumps, little bumps. They all feel horrible when you are trying to find a way to live a “normal” life with Hashimoto’s. Every time you think you are getting ahead, it seems something else takes the place of your last solved “problem” so you can start trying to figure out how to deal with the newest one! Up until the last few years, I truly didn’t realize all my little “bumps” were related to my autoimmune condition. I thought since it wasn’t actually my thyroid bothering me, it must be another issue altogether especially since that’s what my conventional doctor told me!
