I'm at the same place that you are. I am petrified of starting the diet, because if I don't eat sugar, I can't get out of bed. I wish someone could say, "just give it a month and you'll start feeling better." I just want some improvement over a relatively short period of time. I picture myself in massive die-off for months and months, and completely unable to leave the house or to do anything productive. As it is I am basically laid-up by this condition. I can't work and I had to drop out of school this semester, but want to go back. I've had this for 20 years. CAN I GET FEELING BETTER WITH THE DIET AND SUPPLEMENTS SOON SO THAT I CAN RETURN TO SCHOOL PART TIME WHILE I CONTINUE TO WORK ON THIS???
