I’m heading towards my six month mark, yay!
I have realized some little things that were candida-related, that I didn’t even realize I had, now that they have gone away. First, my nose would often smell like ACV inside, and occasionally, my boogers would be white (sorry, I know that’s gross). I didn’t even realize that I had candida inside of my sinuses!! I would also get white earwax sometimes. Luckily, now that I realized that was candida, it has all disappeared 😀
I’m still having trouble getting my digestion to chill out, but it’s slowly getting better. Kind of a two steps forward, one step back. I accidentally ate some moldy (homemade buckwheat) bread this week, which definitely set me back, but not as bad as accidents have in the past! (PS Moldy bread is gross and I really don’t recommend it, LOL) I’m just having some stupid digestive issues over it, alternating soft stools and constipation for a couple of days, and one night of major stomach pain and nausea, but hopefully it will be gone by tomorrow, fingers crossed.
Another update – I am about to embark on a two-month journey! I will be on tour with Warped Tour for a couple of weeks, home for a week, then back on the road for a few weeks, then off to be a camp counselor!! I have a basic plan for the road, which involves a lot of raw veggies, salad, avocados, hemp seeds, homemade granola, and yogurt…not entirely different from how I eat at home, honestly, except less eggs and less cooked veggies. Luckily I can digest salad and raw veggies these days!!
I have been feeling pretty great and almost entirely symptom-free, aside from this mold incident (and a little bit of white on my tongue still), so I have tested out two foods that I believe will make my life easier on the road: carrots and tomatoes. I had one small carrot over the course of three days last week, with no problems at all. Today, I tried two bites of a tomato for the first time. I’m just looking for foods that will be simple for me to eat on the road, so I’m hoping it will be okay for me to add a few bites of carrot or tomato to my salads a couple of times a week, just for some variety of nutrients, etc.
I also have had a small amount of coffee a few times, with minimal problems. I had a little itchy butthole happen after I had a full cup two days in a row, so I will refrain from drinking it too often, but it’s nice to have the option. The weird thing was, the caffeine didn’t affect me negatively at all! It just gently helped me focus. In the past, it would make me really wild. I feel like this means I’m truly ADD, and that my difficulty with concentration is not candida-related.
So since I’m going to be gone, I won’t be posting much from here on out, at least until I return in August! I’ll pop in from time to time, I’m sure. If you want to keep in touch better, just message me for my email or facebook, which I will have access to more easily on my phone while I’m on the road.
I hope everyone has an amazing summer!!! Thank you so much for all of your support over the past six months!!June 11, 2013 at 1:08 am #106075

It’s great to read that you’re making such progress. It’s always encouraging to read these stories. Hopefully someday I’ll have the same success, but it’s a slow road for me. I have digestive issues too, along with many other symptoms, which I’m still struggling to get under control.
Have a great summer Alex!June 11, 2013 at 10:36 am #106083
