I am sorry you’ve been so discouraged. You’re right, the die-off can affect your thought processes, too, not just your physical symptoms. Just like depression has a chemical basis in most people, it makes sense that our brains/thoughts can be affected by toxins in our bodies. Realize this and try to do what you need to do – give yourself time to relax, speak positive, true thoughts to yourself, rest, drink lots and lots and lots of water.
This is going to take time. The first 2 weeks are very often the most difficult. Keeping this in mind, press on. You *will* feel better, and it’s important that you really believe that 🙂 It’s just going to take longer than a week. Longer than 2 weeks, most likely. But, you’ll begin to have gradual improvement and that is so motivating!
Are you on the diet only or have you already started antifungals? Perhaps you could consider just letting the diet take care of some of the yeast before killing off even more yeast with antifungals & such. Then, once you’ve been on the diet for 2-3 weeks, you can start more with the natural antifungals – this will help control your die-off and keep it more steady instead of spiking in dramatic ways. Maybe you’re already doing this.
I know you mostly just needed to talk and let it all out. I’d like to encourage you 🙂 It *is* possible to get well! But, you’ll need to commit to as long as your body is going to need, which may follow the timeline of a certain diet, but also may take longer. Following through is extremely difficult if you don’t really think the detox/diet are going to help. Keep reading and learning, keep working with your body. We’re all here to talk about the good and the bad as you progress 🙂
