Had my free consultation with a nutritionist this afternoon and she certainly knows her stuff, especially as I have been learning all about the same stuff. She made me feel comfortable, hopeful and motivated. She has a plan for me and as other specialists have said "I am a complex case" due to years and years of abuse to my body from anxiety, low self esteem, no confidence, blah blah blah, and now thyroid fluctuations. I am going to be taken under her wing for 3 months at a cost of £995 including weekly visits and contact with her at any time I need. I can't afford it but mum and dad keep wanting to help with finances but I refuse because I am so stubborn and independent. I no longer care about that now and just want my health back, I can't "live" unless my health is better, I just exist and that just isn't enough for me anymore. I want some contentment and peace in my life and after years of helping everyone else around me, it's time for ME, I realise that now, despite being told. I have no life with poor health.
She's a lovely lady, she is the motivation and confidence I need, and she is full of the right knowledge. She even told me it was pointless my purchasing a private cortisol test because she automatically knew, from my history, that my adrenals are shot.
I am now going to bite the bullet, take a deep breath and speak to mum and dad tomorrow about the cost.
