Don’t blame misfortunes on causes that have nothing to do with them.
then why do I experience intense suffering when using certain devices, after I touch foods that have sugar in them? It's absolutely crushing. Certainly not the conditions/effects I want when I want to create positive results in my life/career, because those results would cause the same exact pain as the initial "usage" of such devices (pc, phone, car, etc).
Not always tho, only after "lose" the approval (to use those things) of my family, which happens after I touch sugary things. It's an unbelievable bizzare and frankly messed up situation.
I would try an experiment:
Without telling you which one is which, have a friend pour a tablespoon of either salt or sugar into your hand. How does it make you feel? If it’s salt, there should be nothing unusual. If it’s sugar, then you should feel discomfort, according to what you are saying here.
They need to write down each time which it is, salt or sugar, and what your reaction to it was. Again, you can’t know which it is, salt or sugar. Your friend can write either “P” for painful, or “OK” if not painful. They should not alternate evenly salt/sugar/salt/sugar but do something like salt, sugar, salt, salt, sugar, salt, sugar, sugar and so on.
Also, rinse your hand between each trial so there is no salt of sugar residue on your skin.
Do this 10 times: 5 times, you get a handful of salt, and 5 times you get a handful of sugar. Your friend knows which is which, But you don’t know.
Then, look at the results.
If what you think is happening is what is actually happening, then all of the times that sugar was put into your hand should be marked with “P” to indicate that you felt pain, and all of the times that salt was put into your hand should have “OK” to indicate you felt no pain.
Actually, doing this 20 times will be even better.
This will actually reveal to you whether or not the sugar has anything to do with the effects you are feeling. If you felt pain when the salt was put into your hand, then it can be determined that sugar had nothing to do with it.
There was once a man who thought he had become allergic to his sister. Every time she was around, he broke out on a rash. He thought it had to do with some kind of anger issues from childhood. But it turned out that she had recently started to use some kind of new shampoo or perfume or something that he was allergic to.
An inward outlook develops outward insight.
