Hi there ShinyFushia,
My username's Surfer27. I just wanted to write this post, simply to say, that I admire you opening up to me and telling me abit about yourself and where you live and about your family. It takes a special person to do that, when you have a certain illness that affects one's own life, in all areas. I can to a certain aspect, relate to your condition. Well, just to open up about myself, I am a 28 yr old male, living in Ontario Canada. I have lived here all my life and have travelled to various places, like California, Florida and also been to Loredo, Mexico surprisingly. Abit more about me, I grew up in a Christian family, in a Christian background. I gave my life over to Christ, when I was only 6 yrs old. I have now been a Christian for 22 yrs. I can defintely say, that in those lonely times with dealing with fecal Body Odor , has helped bring some comfort for me, especially when I've struggled with some really bad days, somehow Christ has helped me through those really hard times. I have been dealing with Fecal Body Odor , for about 4 yrs now, since it first came into my life, since January of 06. It's been very hard alot, because of how I am treated by others, especially with the looks that people give me. It makes me feel like, I just want the ground to open up and take me in, but I am trying to stay optimistic, even though it's hard!! Just to give you abit more about myself, I used to love going snowboarding, playing tennis, badminton and squash. I would love, to be able to do those things in my life as I could before, but that might take some time, due to the unknown condition that I have. I am hopeful that, I will to a certain degree, be able to get my life back somewhat. It's only a matter of trying different products and seeing what it does to my body and if it helps!! I am right now, in the process of trying a product called Graviola. I have heard from a person on another health site, that it helped this person, with their Body Odor s, but whether it works for me, that's still uptodebate as, I am waiting for this Graviola to come into Canada. Apparently, not alot of people know alot about this product, but it claims, it's suppose to help any illness. You may want to google the word Graviola and what Graviola does and try it out for yourself. Just a thought. Can't hurt right? I can totally relate to you, about not being able to no longer participate, in family gatherings, or being sociable. I am living through that problem and frustration everyday too. It is frustrating!!!!! Very frustrating!!! So, I can relate to you, on both the levels of feelings of isolation, as I am stuck here in my house, as well as the isolation from family, due to them not understanding. I can totally relate to you!!!!!! Anyways, just wanted to send this your way, to also say, if you need a friend to talk to, then feel free to contact me at anytime, or if, you need anyone to listen to you, I can be that person, as I am very sympathic and empathic towards people, because of my pre existing condition. Alright, I gotta go but I look forward to hearing from you again. Take care and remember, that God loves you!!! God bless.
