That tape ends up coming to a screeching halt.
I feel confident that there will be many "I told you so's" in which I will eventually be uttered, in the end. I have no doubt. I try not afraid of however that'll end up and play out. I just feel that in some way or another, it will...but I don't need to suffer, and continue to spiral down, in the mean time though. They do not own my sense of empowerment; I do!
I’ve been drinking a lot of these non-dairy “healthy” milks, per day, using for smoothies especially. Geez! So then, I thought; I don't need to use it of smoothies, if I throw in overnight soaked nuts and/or seeds; actual organic almonds and even less expensive ones (from bulk) like sunflower, sesame or pumpkin seems. It can be a still-creamy alternative.
In retrospect though, I have to accept that I may not ever be fully well (living in the global environment of today), but: I do not need to deteriorate as much as this, anymore. I feel so empowered, because I get how to do something about this now. It doesn't have to cost me any more than I'm already paying, maybe less, or the same. The only thing I'll need to do is schedule some food prep time blocks. If I take the right attitude and take my time, playing good music while I’m at work, It doesn't have to be hard.
(*Update: The 23andMe showed that I have 2 MTHFR mutations, as well as a few other concerning mutations such as COMT++ (which is linked to estrogen dominance problems, and even ovarian cancer etc..) and MTRR ++ (problems with the vitamin b12 cycle, no surprise) The MTHFRs I have are both the mains ones; C677T and A1298c. They are both "heterozygous" meaning, I have only one copy of each. However, since I have both types, this can produce moderate to even severe health issues, albeit unusual ones. That makes perfect sense.)
