recently i discovered splenda was wreaking havoc on my body! for almost a year i was mildly-moderate nauseated?? from the time i woke up to the time i'd go to sleep. i started missing my periods. this past May i didn't have anything for 3 months. i was very irritable,easily angered even though i'm generally easygoing, mild mannered. i became horribly depressed to the point of suicide, always tired, unusually sensitive to light and sound, had tingling/numbness in my fingers at times. i'm 39 so i just assumed i was suffering from some severe form of perimenopause. my gyn md thought i was too young for this and couldn't explain the constant nausea i was having. my blood work was normal. i thought i was having some unusual hormonal imbalance. but doctors had absolutely no idea. i really couldn't bare spending every day feeling so awfully depressed and car sick all the time. then! it all changed when i came across this article in a women's magazine (First) and! lo and behold a woman was suffering from similar symptoms. don't recall having very many GI problems or heart palpitations or shortness of breathing too much but the nausea is what caught my attention. she finally zeroed in, that splenda was the culprit. immediately of course i stopped and today i feel more like my old self again. now going on 2 weeks off of it. no more nausea. the depression had lifted. so for all you diabetics, low carb eaters out there and if you're experiencing any of these symptoms, i would highly recommend checking out "foodanddiet.com/splenda". this is an excellent website and shares many stories of other splenda user sufferers. then get off this poison NOW. this toxin absolutely trashed my life!
