Today is Saturday and I'm feeling kinda down

Well, I'm feeling kind of negative lately, and have been thinking that I need to do something about it. I just took a new homeopathic remedy, which I hope will help, but I'm not sure whether or not it will, as I've tried other remedies and feel that they haven't made much of a difference.

This specific carbohydrate diet thing is tough. You can't buy food that's already been prepared, so either you have to spend a lot of time cooking, or eat really boring, plain foods. Such as, dinners for us are usually some sort of meat (chicken, fish, beef), frozen green beans and/or carrots, and salad. Sometimes ee have split peas or lentils, or some sort of soup, to round things out a bit. Breakfast is usually eggs, sometimes banana pancakes or cashew butter pancakes (got that recipe from the web). Occasionally we have sugar free sausage from the health food store. Lunch is often just yogurt, steamed veggies, and cheese, and some leftover meat like cooked chicken. Pretty boring.
DS is a fruit hound, eating usually at least one piece of fruit per meal, and also snacking on some. Mostly bananas and apples, but lately he's been snagging dh's raisins and prunes. I have a feeling he has been craving the fruit because of candida (yeast) since I have ongoing issues. I still have a yeast infection, by the way, and am thinking I need to eliminate honey and cut back on fruits.
I'm using Candex, an enzyme product, along with Candistat, and they haven't been enough so far.
I also have always had depression, and am feeling like that's really in the way of my healing, since it robs me of energy. I have been off medication (prozac) since my pregnancy, except for a brief period after ds was born (I stopped because I felt it was making the candida worse -- he had nasty thrush). I am sure talkative tonight!
