I'm nowhere near where I want to be, but I've gotten loads better. I was unable to function a couple months ago, I believe I got hit with the mental side of things about as bad as it can get. I thought life was truly over, it isn't really like that anymore. I'm following the protocol exactly as it is laid out on TMO, so I just implemented light weight lifting, a month from now I'll be at the heavy lifting stage and I'll implement the herbs and HIIT. I haven't started the daily supplements yet because they used to give me massive issues with brain fog, but I'm going to try them soon. I'm nervous to start the herbs because I am still sensitive with food and stuff that I put in my body. But the paleo diet has done great things for me. My memory has improved, my brain fog isn't a thick, terrifying fog anymore, it's more like I just don't really think that clearly anymore. Depersonalization/derealization has all but faded, not an issue anymore. I still have vision issues, especially "tracers" as I call them, so like when things move, I can see them streaking behind (think shooting stars, or cars passing on a highway in a camera) so things like passing cars or people gesturing with their hands is weird for me. Still have a lot of issues with screens like TV or phones. Sometimes I forget where I am and don't really have that inner voice telling me what day it is, time, month, but seems to be improving? Anxiety is under control, it rears its head randomly (like yesterday) but it is much better now, inability to handle stress and panic attacks both seem to be gone. I'll update more later on, but just wanted to let everyone know how I'm doing. Thanks
    Youíre referring to eye floaters as tracers, and I had them. Theyíre gone now, but they were one of the far last things to go away.

    Wow, really? I had no idea. I thought that by eye floaters people meant like black spots in the middle of their vision. If I remember correctly from reading through the site, you had issues with screens as well?

    They come in all shapes and sizes honestly. Both would be considered ďfloatersĒ. I did have awful time reading screens at work. My suggestion that I wish had been given to me at this point wouldíve been to get a pair of blue blocker glasses.

    I've found that also. I can only handle looking at screens with my glasses on, contacts are a no-go. I actually just got a pair of blue light blocking glasses that are non-prescription. For whatever reason they make my head burn and idk how, but apparently give me anxiety. Not sure how that even works. Normal glasses seem to be ok though. I'll probably try implementing them a little bit later on once I see some more improvements since wearing glasses all the time is a drag.

    I couldnt look at any screens. I couldnt look at my iphone or my computer or tv or anything. Also looking at people I would see 2 heads all most. It was all contorted somehow. That has all gone away though. I still have eye floaters. Bunch of little black dots and squiggly lines everywhere. Especially when im looking at a white background. But I'll take that over the double vision or whatever. It'll go away on the protocol for sure!

    Hey man, thanks for the response. Did the screens hurt your head or what? Just make symptoms worse?

    Spoke a little too soon. Huge downswing, gonna have to push through it. I masterbated for the first time in 2 months last week, I think thatís where this is coming from. A lot of derealization/vision/anxiety symptoms returned. Learning experience. But downswings are expected, no?

    As you start meeting all of your bodies needs things will start to come into balance and fix themselves. We can't always tell what that will exactly be, and in what order, we just need to trust in the fact that the body knows what it's doing.

    Thanks man. Iím learning to trust the process more and more every day since itís all done wonders. Itís funny because magnesium has given me a mental clarity I havenít felt in years, before this mess I struggled with ADHD, since taking magnesium Iíve been able to focus with pin point precision. And now that Iíve been on the paleo diet I canít imagine going back to filling my body with garbage. I have a feeling once Iím out of this mess, Iíll be glad it happened since Iíve created such a better lifestyle for myself.
