I can't believe that I finally found someone to relate to... I am a 27 year old female and I suffer from the same living hell. I have recently had a heightened episode since I started a new life path and I am overhearing comments from my new coworkers. I cannot smell myself usually but I will catch an unpleasant whiff occasionally which makes me wonder if I am delusional and it's not even there normally. I have always been very self confident and have always attracted the opposite sex easily... but I am becoming ETREMELY self conscious. I can't even function normally anymore because I don't want to push my limits interacting with those that have made comments regarding the unpleasant smell. I toil with this because I don't want to be rude but I don't want people uncomfortable around me. I have never had anyone approach me on a personal level leaving me to wonder if the comments might be about someone else.
Has anyone found ANYTHING that works? I find the issue is more severe when I am stressed but the more research I do online, the more I'm stressed about it. There seems to be a link with stress, candida, brain fog, immune imbalance and TMAU from all of the articles.
What am I missing? Do you have any advice? I am sorry for your circumstance too. I can relate to never wishing this on anyone. Part of me feels like this is fate because I feel as though I can be strong enough to carry this weight... although that confidence has been faltering.
