It has been 3 weeks since I found out I have candida, and I am reading more and more, and I just read someone who has been treating their candida for 3.5 years and is still not cured. I cannot last that long. I am only 17 and I have yet to experience college and the bars, and I cannot last any longer on chicken & fish with nuts for a snack. It doesn't help that I only like about 5 vegetables. I have been crying for the past few days because I just can't believe this has happened to me. I just want to be normal again. It kills me to know this is nearly incurable. I only hear about people stuggling, nobody succeeding on the candida battle. I don't know if I can cope. I hate to sound so selfish, because I know all of you are going through the same thing.. but you all seem to be taking it very calmly and have adapted to the lifestyle. I'm sorry if my rant came off like that, but it's just really hard for me for some reason.
