Feeling Better:)

Posted by lexibrowning, 31 July 2013 · 981 views

Through my experience of totally messing my digestive system up this past weekend I have learned my lesson about messing around with gluten. I knew things were getting worse and that I was becoming more sensitive, but I think I just really didn't want to believe it. I've been going through this phase where I just can't stop thinking about how unfair all of this is and how I just want to be normal. My mom used to tell me when I was younger when my tummy was hurting or I felt sick that it was all in my head and that I was fine. So i just kept repeating to myself that all this is made up... I'm imagining the pain. Sadly, I am not and by having that mindset I set myself up for even MORE pain and discomfort. Never ever again will I let this happen.
I have to accept that this is my life now and the time where I could eat gluten-filled foods are in the past.

On the bright side, I am feeling much better today and am trying to start eating solid foods again. The past 4 days I have been living off of pears, prune juice, and carrots because everything else made me feel nauseous to even think about. Not sure what I will try to eat, as we don't have much in the house at all right now (we are going out of town in 2 days), but I am sure I will find something. Right now I'm snacking on gluten-free vanilla chex. Yumm! Hopefully I can get my system back on track in these next two days so I don't have to ride in a car for 8 hours super uncomfortable!

Thanks for everyone's help on my posts over the weekend:)

there are alot of sandwich meats (you're not vegetarian, are you?) that are gluten free - peanut butter & jelly, nutella, etc canned tuna, ummmm....  i eat boar's head deli meats are ALL gluten-free - i think i lived on the turkey breast on udi's bread for a month lolz - udi's, rudi's or scharr breads - make yourself some sandwiches for your trip.  you can put a salad together if you want - i have an insulated backpackk and for longer trips i have a cooler (ice chest) to keep my stuff in.  what i'm saying is:  try to think ahead when you are traveling - my family always stops for fast food and there is nothing i trust to be safe at fast food places.  have a good trip and glad you're feeling better, sweetie.

Hi!:) Thanks for your comment!  I will definitely look into bringing things along in the car that I can eat instead of tempting myself to eat fast food!
