Day 47 And A Change In The Game

So I've been putting off writing about this for the past 2-3 days just cause I've been kinda upset over it and exhausted by midterms. 
I have just been diagnosed with a genetic disorder. I have a compound heterozygous MTHFR mutation for methylation. Basically, my genes are screwed up. 
On the one hand, this can account for every single health problem I have ever had in my entire life. Literally. 
On the other hand, I will have to take a lot of supplements everyday for the rest of my life and follow a strict diet (no sugar, no processed foods, no gluten, no dairy). And although I can cope with that, it's less than thrilling. 
The reason I'm bringing this up is that I might have to go off my current meds. 
I'm already quitting Doxycycline today because I can't be on any antibiotics with this disorder (my body can't process them). I went up to 75mg Spironolactone last night, but if my doctor says that Spiro has folic acid in it, I have to quit that too. 
Theoretically, this diet and these supplements should really help with my acne, but I'm not buying it. TBH, I don't really believe in any treatments anymore--I'm not getting my hopes up. 
So, I already started the diet yesterday and my supplements should be coming tomorrow. Wish me luck. 
75mg Spironolactone
Clearasil Fash Wash
Cetaphil SPF 30 Oil Control Moisturizer 

Wow..I am sorry to hear that you have this disorder. Of course. I am like "what if I have a genetic disorder too?"omg  I am still on spiro too. I hope you can stay on it. I don't think it has folic acid in it.
