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.
