Obesity / Stress / Yeast Syndrome
Posted by: Melissa
Date: January 29, 2002 5:35 AM

For over a year now, I have been battling my weight and stress. I am 5' 5" and am now weighing 250 pounds. I do not overeat. I drink diet sodas, and do not keep sweets in the house. I smoke occasionally, and drink alcohol approximately one day a week. I cry all the time, have no motivation. I could sleep all day if my kids allowed it. I have no patience. I gained 20 pounds since the death of my father; I fear that my mood swings and temper will have a serious effect on my children. My intolerable behavior caused my husband and I to split, and I am sure the weight had something to do with it. One year ago I was not like this. I loved to work, play with my kids, kept my house clean, and wanted to be a part of everything. We were a happy family, and I don't know where it all started to fall apart. I read one of your articles about Yeast Syndrome, and it sounded a lot like me. I could relate to most of the symptoms. Do you think this could be what is wrong with me?

Digestive disorders are extremely common and usually go undiagnosed. While I can't diagnose you from this distance, your idea about what is wrong seems likely to be accurate. Education is the key to getting well, for out of knowledge comes action. Read all you can about the subject. Start with Basis of Physical Health (blue tab) to the left. It would also be a good idea to find a doctor who is experienced in evaluating and treating such problems. Use our Find A Doctor service - yellow tab above.
