Have some huge huge hugs. xxx
I know what it feels like to be completely at the end of your tether, and be willing to do anything to make it all go away. I had a similar situation with my face. At the age of 31 I suddenly started getting awful acne, my skin wouldn’t heal, and I started to look really old. I found myself crying all the time and feeling depressed and just wanting to hide from the world.
I can’t say if your skin problems are caused by candida, but I know that not only my skin problems, but also my feelings of depression and dispair were cured by going on the diet.
It sounds like your reactions to anti fungals were caused by die off, which means you certainly have something inside you that needs killing. Now we’re into the summer holidays, how do you feel about giving the diet a proper go?
If you can afford nothing else, get some good probiotics and then just eat green veg and eggs. This forum will give you all the information you need to beat this, don’t be afraid to ask if you can’t find the answer to something by searching for it, people are very helpful. We’re all in the same boat, and sometimes just reading other people’s posts makes everything seem a little bit better.
I’m also seeing an excellent homeopath who has given me hair tests to help find out my underlying problems that are making me vulnerable to candida. I can give you her details if you’d like them, though the homeopathic route isn’t cheap either.
Do you think it’s worth having a chat with your dad about how you’re feeling? It seems to me that seeing you fit and well would be far more important to him than what it costs to get you there, and it’s likely he’ll have some way you can help him in return in the future, even if seeing you healthy again isn’t enough on it’s own. xx
