Hello, I was recently diagnosed with severe fatty liver disease (last week) and quite frankly, it's scared the crap out of me. I am feeling defeated and depressed. I know there are far worse diagnoses and that some of the damage is reversible. I guess I am looking for some hope. I feel so totally hopeless and helpless. I am a non-drinker. I am overweight and have high blood pressure which I suppose is the cause of my illness. My family usually all die of heart attacks so I always thought that was what would get me. I am someone who suffers with anxiety and so this kind of thing throws me in a tailspin. My go to, comfort food has always been chocolate and sweets. So the very thing I would use to make me feel better is what caused this! All I wanted to do this past weekend was go to bed and sleep and forget about
it all. I have lots to live for--a husband, three kids, and now three granddaughters all of whom I love very much. I've been doing research on foods to treat the liver and started changing my diet this weekend. I'm just afraid I will fail since i love and crave sweets so much. I almost think I know what a drug addict or alcoholic feels when they crave it. I would appreciate any and all advice from anyone who's gone though this.
