lydiarrt Posted November 13, 2014 Share Posted November 13, 2014 Hi! I'm a 30 year old female from Florida. I have been struggling the last 2 years with a rare undiagnosed autoimmune condition. It acts alot like lupus and I also get a weird vasculitis associated with it called HSP. I've been put on Imuran and Plaquenil and the meds do not seem to be helping. I'm also on glucophage for my PCOS. Basically, I just feel bad all the time. I'm tired and achy. I work night shift at the hospital, so I also have horrible sleep patterns. My autoimmune meds are no longer working. My thyroid is now out of whack and they want to start me on meds for that and also change my pills to Enbrel injection. I'm not okay with the doctors just adding and changing meds. I feel like nothing has changed and I also have gained 30ish lbs since being put on these meds. I am taking matters into my own hands. I started seeing a chiropractor for the constant back pain, and he recommended a clean eating diet -low carbs-all natural. I researched and found that Whole30 seemed to be my best option. I am starting on November 16 because we have a big party to attend on the 15th. I'm aware this will be difficult because it laps over Thanksgiving. However, I'm so tired of being sick and tired that I dont even care. My husband is supportive and I'm lucky my child isn't very picky. I'm greatful to have found this plan and am hopeful to see some changes. Every time i've ever done anything its been solely to 'lose weight' and it never works. this time it is to make life changes and feel better. ~L Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
