Re: Were anyone's mental problems helped by going on a very restricted diet like SCD or GAPS?
It's not that I don't believe that dehydration could be contributing, but I don't think that drinking lots of water in and of itself will cure my malaise.
Thank you for your response though, I guess its nice to be validated. Although doctors I've been to have been nice and listened, I feel that they underestimate how much I'm affected by this. Although there are many people who are diagnosed as depressed, ADD, GAD etc, but for whatever reason I'm much more dysfunctional than average. I'm barely getting by. I'm taking classes at a local college, but I have such a hard time doing the schoolwork that my grades are really suffering. I'm young and I still live with my parents. I'm looking for a job so I can eventually move out and stop living with them...I feel like a burden. In general I feel very out of control of my life all the time. I know I'm just ranting but today has not been the best day.
I'm not looking for a miracle, I just want to feel somewhat human...like my old self. So far nothing I've tried has made a difference. Its like my mind is stagnant.
