I’m feeling really emotional, i feel much more unstable right now, hard to express my feelings to my partner without seeming like a crying mess. He doesn’t get it and doesn’t particularly want to. Is being emotional part of die off?
We had a stupid argument about a dream i had, i was eating alot of sugary things, i said to him the candida is making me crave sugar because it feeds off it.
He just told me i was wrong and it was the ENERGY in the sugar i was craving, because iv been so lack of it since stating the diet.
Seems so stupid but i ended up crying and he ended up raising his voice and dominating me.
I should have just brushed off our diffrence in opionion but i couldn’t i was all wrapped up in emotion and the fact he wants to contridict me.

In my experience, being over-emotional is definitely sometimes part of the die-off, and it really helps to remember that, altho’ not easy when the emotions are so powerful. Also, I’ve found that its tough for my husband too,who has his own emotional reactions to my diet and all the info that it involves. Its easy to think he should understand how obvious it is to see that candida makes me crave sugar for example, but gradually I’ve learnt that he is only learning this stuff through MY experience and MY beliefs about that experience; he is only learning about it secondhand from me and sometimes its totally overwhelming for him to work out what is real. Recently I realised that a good balance is this:to ask him to believe what I tell him about my EXPERIENCE, whilst still respecting his freedom to be agnostic(or questioning) about my BELIEFS about my experience.
Another thing I’ve learnt is to say is’Look ,this stuff has not been massively researched or definitively proven, but I’m convinced (because of x,y, z) that its worth me pursuing it, and I’d really like you to support me as much as you can, even though you’re not sure about it.’ I’ve spent years thinking I’ve got to convince people that all this candida stuff really is real,and gradually some people have started to see for themselves, but its often only when they experience something themselves which makes them sit up and take notice. IME, people tend to think that all this health stuff is a bit weird,UNTIL they have some problem themselves and discover that the remedy is one of these ‘weird’ healthfoods Suddenly, overnight,something shifts for them and they START to see things afresh. Hope this makes sense;if not just ignore it,as its a bit convoluted. Best wishes, sparrowJuly 8, 2013 at 12:30 pm #107402

I alternated between being extremely emotional and extremely disconnected during the earlier phases of my treatment. I think it’s pretty common. It helped me to keep in mind that it’s fine to be upset and to know that releasing the emotion that comes up is important even if the reasoning behind the emotion seems silly.July 9, 2013 at 9:44 pm #107457

yes, candida makes you emotional. All those toxins, of course! Those toxins are also released in your tears. Go ahead and cry it out.
your partner is right, you DO crave sugar because you crave the energy. and the candida causes that energy loss. So you are both right. but candida is the root cause.
Also I totally have dreams about sugary food! It’s funny that this occurs because I never dreamed about those things before starting my dietJuly 10, 2013 at 2:33 pm #107488
