Thanks for your reply
I have educated myself regarding Candida, I´ve read so much my eyes are tired LOL, though maybe I havent been able to fully translate it into simple words for other people to understand me.
Unfortunatelly, the reason that I am asking this here is because most people, if not all the people who have felt healthy all their lives, do not believe in Candida. and the few that are open minded dont really get it, or its symptoms.
Like I said before, even my own family who have seen me struggle with this for years, dont really understand how I cannot manage it myself and “shake it off” like apparently people do in “the responsible adults world”, I mean, for them is like an excuse that I feel sick.
Now try to explain that to a person who does not live with you, and does not get to see your symptoms everyday, I dont know about you but I dont go out yelling my symptoms out in public to everyone, so, most people dont even notice that you are feeling misserable and sick, and if they do they think its just a flu.
So, I have tried explaining it and I can inmediatelly see the look on their faces, when people nod their face but you know they dont really buy what you are saying, or simply refuse to believe in something that is not scientifically proved… I mean, even “real” diseases like my ADHD are not fully accepted and understood by everyone, so now try to explain a disease that allopatic doctors don´t even support.
So, that is why I came to this forum, to understand how to tell other people, unfamiliar with Candida and its symptoms, why I cant fully function without being “medically” sick.
