I am also a newbie so I’m not sure how helpful I’ll be. But I read your post and wanted to let you know that my heart goes out to you. I can very much relate to your lack of energy and feelings of desperation. I’ve been laying in bed for 2 days wanting to make my way to this computer simply to ask for the help I need to get better. Some days it seems easier to give up. But we can’t….. I know that it will get better for both of us. We just have to persist and use this forum to help us figure it out. I know from when I first started out (just 5 weeks ago) that Able suggested making the dietary changes first. Eat lots of green veggies, no sugar (not even fruit), low carbs, meats including: beef, chicken, turkey, salmon, eggs. I think the diet is the most important change you can make for starters. And, know that we are all here for you.
