Amy, after all this time I have to agree with you. I think I have done everything I can when it comes to food. I thought I might have a deficiency in something & need a supplement. I would go to my dr for blood workup, but I can’t stand them. They stress me badly so right now it’s not worth it for me to go. Also, I’m not convince they do the right tests & read them correctly. Last time I went through the hassle of seeing them for the tests, 2 yrs ago, they said everything was fine except my cholesterol. Big surprise! They wanted me to go on a lowfat, low cholesterol diet and take statins. I had already done the diet, which I think messed up my metabolism & I will never go on statins so that was the end of that. Then I went to a holistic dr. She recommended supplements for thyroid, adrenal, & potassium plus a few other things. I hate taking so many things at once. I did get a thyroid & adrenal supplement, also potassium & took them for a couple months till I got sick of swallowing pills. I really didn’t feel any different so I don’t know If I needed to stay on them longer or they just didn’t work.
I know stress hurts me & don’t deal with it well. I tried EFT, I think it’s called? I don’t get how it works, but I know when I say “I totally & completely accept myself” I really don’t. I can’t make myself believe it so that is probably why it doesn’t work for me. It isn’t just the weight, which isn’t terribly terribly awful, I really want to be healthy. At my age you worry that you are going downhill & I want to beat the odds.
