Elemental diet made it 1 week

I'm at the point where I'd rather fast. The nausea from the sick sweet powder and oil...
diarrhea from the oil... sugar coma headache.

Originally I was aiming for 30 days. I've already mentally adjusted to 3 weeks but even that seems impossible today.

One of my friends told me it's like going through chemo. You poison your body temporarily for some greater good- just endure it.
:grumpy:

She also said there's a cancer bandwagon that rolls up to give you a party as soon as you're diagnosed, and then disappears as soon as medicine decides you're cured.

On the plus side! ME made NY Times Modern Love! Maybe more people will believe it exists now.
