I need this!

I don't know why I'm having such trouble staying raw. I've done it in the past but for some reason I am more addicted to cooked food than ever!
I really need this though. I NEED to be raw! Every time I stop being raw I begin to have yet another health problem. My body is practically yelling at me to be raw.
First I began to have mental health problems (many of which were there my whole life but have become severe enough that I need medication).
Then I began to have severe IBS symptoms.
Then I began to have trouble digesting meat. I feel extreme pain from it. I also get the pain from other cooked foods. My gastro dr said to stay away from raw veggies but in truth they're probably the only thing that DOESN'T bother my stomach at this time.
The list goes on. But the most recent development is that I'm starting to have symptoms of diabetes. I'm drinking tons of water yet I'm still thirsty. I feel strange after having something with sugar in it (light headed and fuzzy).
I'm also starting to feel nauseous when I eat.
I know from past experience that I am super healthy when raw.
So, starting tomorrow I'm going to work at being raw. Unlike in the past where I went raw 100% right off the bat, this time I'm going to do it gradually. I need to wean myself off of cooked foods. Eating "healthy" is easy (ie staying away from junk). Well, not totally easy but it's not totally hard either.
I need to go raw. There is no doubt in my mind about that. Why is it so hard?
