Sade’s Struggle with Mental Health
My name is Sade. I’m 28 years old and live in Mexico, and I am from London, UK. I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder in 2015 and had also been dealing with Anxiety and Depression for years prior to being diagnosed.
Seeking a Diagnosis for Autism
I tried to talk to someone about getting a diagnosis of Autism (Asperger’s) because of my sensitivity issues, repetitive behavior, and inability to socialize (without substances, i.e., alcohol/drugs). I have always been extremely socially awkward and not sure of how to connect with others properly.
All of my younger siblings are also autistic. The mental health team dismissed everything and stuck with the BPD and prescribed me medications, and had me in therapy (DBT), which only lasted four weeks due to being homeless at the time.
A Traumatic Childhood
I had an unstable childhood and a really traumatic time as a teenager and young adult. I am married with a son now, and the mental illnesses almost ruined my marriage. I found Carnivore just in time, as we were on the verge of divorce.
Thriving on the Carnivore Diet
I am currently thriving on Carnivore. I’ll be going into my 8th week on Monday, and I’ve seen improvements from just a week into Carnivore. It took three days for the depression to lift, a week for the anxiety to go completely, and the BPD symptoms have been slowly going away week after week.
They feel gone now, but, of course, I’m continuing to monitor myself as it’s only been eight weeks. But coming from being mentally unstable every day to not having any episodes or highs/lows… I’m pretty convinced it’s a permanent thing.
