Hi all emotional ones,
I was one of them as well. And it was really terrible for the first 3 weeks or so. I just felt hopeless thinking that I can’t ever live normally again, have a restaurant dinner with my husband or friends. I had just spent one month without alcohol just voluntarily before I learned about my Candida. And that time I was at a couple of parties and it wasn’t so bad not to be drinking with others since I enjoyed all the food that was on offer, desserts and all.
But now it is actually pretty boring going to a party where most foods are not made for someone on my diet, so I can’t even enjoy that, not to mention alcohol.
One tip is to take something you like with you to the party, I bring my own raw chocolate made from coconut oil, raw cacao and stevia. That keeps me awake at a late night party… That has been ok in the later stages of the diet.
