Hello everyone, My name is Ashley. Iam 25 years old and have been through alot. I have been thought to be dipolar for years. I can truely say that I always knew that I wasn't. However, when everyone is saying that you are, it can make you somewhat of a believer. Instead I did a personal diagnois, somewhat of a compromise to these "doctors" and family. I came to the conclusion that i had PMDD. Which made sense to me. I wasnt denying I had problems, I just didn't feel them to be to the extreme of bipolar. Well now I have more problems then before. My blood pressure is messed up!!! I started on a small dose and that didnt work. Now Iam on double the dose, trying to keep my blood pressure down. I had to give up fast food, soda, coffee, caffine in general, cigarettes, no salt, and really had to make some life changes with my whole diet. I felt this was unfair, it didnt make sense Iam 25 years old and I have extremely high blood pressure. I started getting depressed. Without the caffine and coffee, I became more tired and worn out then ever before. Now my body is completely drained. I started to become very depressed and suffered from anxiety. Well, at my lowest the answers finally came out. My mother was researching Vitamin deficiencies. She requested my doctor test me for B and D deficiencies. And sure enough my levels of B12 are very low... WOW.... I FEEL SOOO RELEAVED!!! To finally have answers. To finally be able to feel like.... I can get better. To actually be able to treat what I have.. or how I feel.. Iam sooo greatful. If it wasnt for my mother, I would never have found a solution to my problems... So I have done some research today, checking the symptoms of B12 deficiency... It makes sooo much sense now... everything I had suffered with... and more.... it all is me! Eye twitches, headaches, heart palpitations, cold feet, fatigue, chest pains, dizzyness, shortness of breath, numbness/tingling in hands/feet, vision problems, and red/sore tongue. All these things, some I didnt even think mattered. I thought well maybe I'm just being lazy, maybe my feet are just cold, maybe i need glasses, maybe i just need to quite smoking and excersize more. BLahhh, blahh, blahh.. Well Iam soo releaved... but still very upset. What about everyone else who was unknowledgable, people like me... people who are still suffering and dont even know why... I'm thankful to the writer of that book.. THANK YOU for everyone who is making a difference trying to inform people about how much this can effect ones body. Because for the longest time, it didn't just effect my body it effected my mind... my whole being has been consumed by this.
