Just wanted to post an update. The cleanse did nothing for my BB. It seems it got worse in fact and was making life at work even more horrible.
I'm working as a temp because I can't find a job -- been out of work sense June '09 and thanks to this problem it seems I'll lose this temp job as well. I've been working in an open center with 5 other employees desks close together. Yesterday, I was literally sitting there for 8 hours trying to hold my breath and it wasn't working because I could hear people whispering and complaining and sending each other signals. Words could not express how ashamed and embarassed I was.
I know they told the manager and like before Friday will probably be my last day. Its just horrible the way this problem and these kind of problems have ruined lives.
In any case I'm looking in to SSI next week. I don't know what they'll say but I'm certain the extreme anxiety and stress caused by this should be a consideration.
