New OAT test results

This sucks.

After seven months of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, 2 rounds of vancomycin (antibacterial), 2 rounds of Diflucan & endless Nystatin (antifungals/yeast meds), Thomas still has bacteria & yeast overgrowth. Not only that, the numbers are higher. Worse, in other words.

This isn't working.

And I've spent so much time, money, energy...god damn it.

Speaking of God...well, shit. I don't want to. I don't think I'm on speaking terms right now.

I'm going to bed. Another morning of swollen eyelids from crying myself to sleep. Fucking hell.

Hang In There Sweetie! I am sending good vibes your direction. There is still hope, just keep fighting the good fight. Remember there is probably several years of overgrowth to deal with/figure out, and with a persistent loving heart such as yours, you shall overcome!!!! I love you, and I am thinking of you always. "Boner, god!"

can't imagine the frustration, anger, pain - all i can say is: your friends and family love you. draw from this energy, this strength, and keep the faith - if not in god right now (and that's ok) in yourself - you are doing everything you possibly can - you are incredible. love from portland - pam

This has nothing to do with god: T's breathtaking progress and amazing growth has everything to do with your love, constant vigilance and amazing patience. You will get this figured out and he will continue to thrive and i KNOW you will lick this overgrowth!!!!
