Hi guys. For the longest time I didn't figure out what was causing a few of my fleeting good times..and yeah there's plenty of factors. Horrible face pressure/fatigue (eyes always drooped, extra eyelid forms on left side when I feel bad), bodily weakness and even some neuropathy, anxiety, fibromyalgia, brain fog, thin skin, chemical intolerances, GI issues, asthma+difficulty breathing through nose, just an overall "trapped" bodily feeling because I barely felt anything but this stuff. This actually has been consistent my entire life--especially when I went outside, I remember feeling "f'ed up" as if the bodily stress was just curling up. Very disorientated, dizzy, most of these things, even the bad GI system. So yes, it's something pretty serious. I thought this was "normal", guys. I found that antihistamines did help me feel a bit more "alive" which threw me for a massive loop. Another is how when my GI system was normal for 3 days (just imagine it's always bad), I felt good. (For scope imagine that I have about 15 good feeling days a year). Good days=most of my symptoms are gone, even can breathe much better. Also, for whatever reason, there was a bunch of fuzzy white stuff (looked organic) that was in my #1 and #2. Not even kidding you, it was stuck in #2, not inside. I had never seen anything like it before. Anyway. Then two weeks back I found out about the MTHFR gene defect which made a ton of sense. I don't normally think I have something, but it basically could contribute to a lot of my issues--and also seems to correlate with asthma, speech delay (as a kid), and a weird one--vein in forehead (I have a massive one for some reason, rest of my skin is clear). It didn't help that the special B vitamins actually accompanied 4 of the best days I've had in, well...forever. I took it with NAC, Zinc (deficiency), and magnesium. What confused me was when later on it didn't quite have the effect...and even made my skin flake off a little? Like...my skin hasn't flaked in years, but the area underneath my eye flaked off, legit. What does that even indicate? And also it made me break out. So much for my skincare progress. I found that NAC, taken alone, actually had nearly the same effect and that genuinely when taken with the B vitamins they manage to perform wonderfully. Of course, the key is that I HAVE to get a decent sleep beforehand or the effect will be minimal (I'm beginning to suspect I have something like sleep apnea so me=breathing better is key). Honestly, on these two things, I had a brief period of time where I was so full of energy I felt like I was riding a rollercoaster in the best way possible, just sitting there. So much velocity inside of me. And, there was no anxiety, no come down. I'm not sure if this is like putting a bandaid on the issue OR if it's literally helping my body function correctly...but regardless I've tested it so much and I'm pretty sure NAC (and the methylated B vitamins) help me quite a bit. What's your take on it? I really would like to get to the bottom of why it inspires such an effect on me. NAC DOES thin mucus and help COPD (which I don't think I have but there's something messing with my lungs), so maybe that could be it but still. Whole body feels better. Mind feels sharper. I hear NAC is good for the mind but it feels odd that taking 1 (or 2, which has a huge longtime effect) helps so much.
