Is there any more current information that you all have found helpful? I've read all the posts and am so grateful for some options to try that are natural and harmless. I'm 46 and probably started when I was 10-12, I don't remember. I've never sought treatment as all the research I have done seems to take a psychiatric route and that has never felt right to me. Reading today about the possibility of a fungus, candida, or chemical imbalance problem really makes more sense to me as the intensity comes and goes. Recently I've had some serious episodes, so much so that my hair stylist commented and I had to create a lie. These periods cause me to feel horrible about myself but I really believe there is a reasonable cause and a viable, natural solution. Thank you to all who posted thus far and to any current posts that you all create. Blessings to all my beautiful partners on this challenging journey.
