Back To Detox--- my eyes are almost swollen shut


I don't know any more about what causes this than I did 2 months ago.   I feel like the whole thing was a total waste of time, energy and the money spent buying all these special foods.

I look like someone used my face as a punching bag.  Disfigured.  Ugly.

And of course the weight I have lost in the past week or two has piled back on.  As I said before, the same five pounds gained and lost--over and over and over.  This post will be short-- in no time at all I won't be able to see to type.  Then, cold compresses and the couch.

Last year, this continued until a day -a morning- in October when I woke, looked in the mirror and it was gone.  I check for allergen counts, pollen counts, mold spore reports.  Trying to find SOMETHING to explain this.  But there is nothing.

I am feeling defeated, depressed and on the verge of tears--which will burn as they run over my swollen face.

I have made the pineapple, strawberry, kale, mint detox smoothie and will be drinking that today.  And hoping it helps even a little bit.  A few days ago, I felt wonderful.

I am so sorry for all the trouble and pain you're dealing with. I know my words don't help this predicament but you really are in my thoughts and prayers. I wish I could do more. Take care.

My eyes are swollen today too and my allergies have never manifested this way. Who kows what is in the air that we don't measure. Hang in there.
PS I am a reader who does not often comment but I do read.

Sorry to read this, both that your eyes are swollen and that you're feeling bad. I hope you don't have to wait until "that day in October" to be well again.
