I’m also 23 and have been dealing with candida since I was about 17. I can relate a lot to what you’re saying, especially about feeling deprived and eating healthy for a few months, feeling better and then slipping back into bad eating habits, and then you start feeling sick again and the cycle continues. Its really hard, and I feel like I don’t really have anyone to talk to about it. My boyfriend tries to be supportive but he doesn’t quite get it.
Do you find that it negatively affects your social life too? I find it really difficult when I’m trying to eat healthy and not drink alcohol, yet every single social event seems to include copious amounts of alcohol and unhealthy food.
Anyway, if you ever need to vent, feel free to message me 🙂 Its nice to know there are other people my age who are struggling with the same things I am.
