I am a young 38 year old and have always (so I thought) been fit and strong. I worked hard and played hard and my work involved interaction with a lot of people.
Of course I had some stress and tiredness from time to time, but never anything serious. First was the itching and localised rash at the groin, then it got worse and not better with treatment (creams etc).
It gradually got so I couldn’t sleep at night or concentrate on anything. Then came the headaches and pain and through all this was the discharge with the attendant embarrassment and self consciousness.
The doctors put me on the more powerful “-azole” drugs (tablets) along with the creams. After some initial relief, the yeast infection came back with a vengeance and invaded other parts of my body – elbows and arms, thighs etc.
For the sake of civility and good language, I’ll stop with the descriptions; suffice it to say that my condition was awful and getting more and more desperate by the day. This went on week after week, month after month, year after year.
The symptoms will ease, and then come back with more severity and recurrently. With a vengeance
My mood swings got so I couldn’t maintain relationships of any kind; diarrhoea, constipation, muscular pain and stiffness, blurred vision, you name it I’ve that symptom at one time or other through the years.
I finally hit rock bottom and was ready to give up on everything. But instead I decided to take responsibility and find another way. Enough of the bad stuff – here’s how I got healed !
