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. 
 
Summary:
 
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.
