Raster makes a good point! I have been battling this all year. I am still suffering. My partner doesn’t think I treat myself to much other foods at times. However, I can tell you this, I feel better than I did last year thru digestive enzymes and diet. I have treated myself at times to just small amount of things. Like last night, I did treat myself to a small amount of puppy chow. I still get a lot of anxiety, and I know part of my problem is my gastroparesis, too. Plus, I have no colon. At first, I met with a doctor last year and started on a cleanse and changing my diet at the beginning of the year. Then, things got haywire, tried treating myself, and this doctor left the area. I decided to consult raster’s nd, and I had my 1st consult with him in late May.
Currently, I think I might take a break from antifungals, etc. Not sure, have to consult the nd this month, but doing too much too fast (which I tend to do) can make you feel bad. It is frustrating; however, about every couple months, it seems I give in and have some drinks (alcohol). That is my one weakness, which I’m sure prevents me from getting 10x better. I really need to give it up for several months. I can tell you this, when I have done it now a couple times since June, I haven’t fallen as hard, gassy, etc. I know the nd’s goal is hopefully by this Christmas I can finally start treating myself more.
However, I really do like eating more greens than I used to! I feel bad if I don’t! Sure, I still want treats, and I surely would like to have more fruit. I really miss eating some fruits. I have ate bites here and there, or I have dried my own fruit to make sure not to get the extra sugar. Just keep plugging along, and I just wanted to say I hear ya!
