Have you ever have plain yoghurt? This is similar, runnier than Greek yoghurt, but thicker than milk, on top of slightly sour taste it has a little fizz to it, like soda drink
Yuk! That sounds absolutely disgusting!! I haven’t been able to tolerate dairy for years, and even the thought of non fizzy yoghurt turns my stomach. Unfortunately I’ve just read a post by Able on just how important it is, so I’m going to have to give it a try. I’m hoping I can make something akin to ginger beer. I love ginger beer. 🙂
Fear and thinking about your symptoms too much is not good, this is from my own experience. The brain fog is not that bad of the symptom. Try having dizziness, all kinds of weird heart symptoms, tingling in head etc.
Yeah, you’re right there. I’m less scared now because it’s calmed down a bit. It’s not that I’m scared of dying of it, just that I’m scared of losing my job or crashing my car, or leaving the house open and it getting burgled. The more time goes by and none of that happens though, the better I feel. You’re absolutely right, I do feel lucky not to have any weird heart symptoms. xx
Patience is another thing I had to learn to do as all of this takes time and can’t really be rushed more than we do by following strictest diet ever!
I have no patience. I want to do everything right now! My biggest challenge I think is saying “no” to all these opportunities around me, because I know I don’t have the energy to do both fun stuff and recover properly.
I don’t really have an army stashed, but have two little kids that depend on me. At times I get desperate and really down and it seems that if I was alone I would like to just lay somewhere and wait to die. Not sure if I would do that or not, but I don’t have that luxury anyway, my kids are only 3 years old and mommy is all they got. I am a bit of a fighter and I can take out anything I put my mind on, this one is so hard to do, but I can do it!
Army, airforce and navy all rolled into one. 🙂 Sounds like you’ve broken the back of it though, things can only get better from here! Well done. xx
I hope things are improving for you by now. I now see small progress, but occasionally suffer from food being introduced too early, or ingesting mold or accidentally too many antifungals.
I’m still having quite big ups and downs, and am still fiddling with the diet to try and remove everything I react to.
At the moment I’m exhausted, and that’s probably because I tried adding swede (rutabaga) last week. At the time it was delicious and I was really craving it, though knew I was playing with fire, and then afterwards I felt fine. It was only 24 hours later that I started feeling flu like symptoms. I wasnt sure the two were connected, so I tried it again, and again felt much better immediately after eating it, and worse again 24 hours later. I think I’ll start increasing it by a little bit each week from now on.
I don’t know if I get fungal reactions, what do they feel like? I can’t cope with mouldy buildings, but foods don’t seem to bother me. Maybe I just haven’t eaten anything mouldy yet!
I’ve finally weaned myself off cacao which is likely adding to my exhaustion. Even that little bit of caffiene must have been really stimulating me. Still, can’t get it perfect every time. Right?
