End Of Withdrawl Is In Sight

Posted by nvsmom, 23 July 2012 - - - - - - · 463 views

I'm starting to feel better.  Yeah!  I think withdrawl was worse for me that how I would feel after a gluten fest.  It was no fun at all.  My headaches are pretty much gone and I don't feel exhausted anymore; that's probably why I'm not quite as grumpy now.

I have glutened myself already.  I had an Estrella Damm Daura beer.  It said...

Round 2 Withdrawl

Posted by nvsmom, 13 July 2012 - - - - - - · 178 views

I thought i was gluten-free for the first 1.5 weeks but discovered I wasn't.  My hummus has gluten and I forgot about checking one vitamin.  I was having bad headaches too... thought it was withdrawl.  I guess it was pms.  :huh:

I am almost 100% sure I am gluten-free now, and have been for about 4 days, and I feel just beat! My headache is back...

All Systems Stopped

Posted by nvsmom, 08 July 2012 - - - - - - · 160 views

Ugh, I haven't gone bathroom in 3 days and I'm starting to get rather uncomfortable.  LOL I wish it would get going again.  I'm starting to get quite a distended belly, and it's gross to think about why. :rolleyes:  That's TMI isn't it?

I just realized that I hadn't checked my fibre supplements to see if they are gluten-free,...

Down A Few Pounds

Posted by nvsmom, 05 July 2012 - - - - - - · 141 views

I've been gluten-free for just over a week and I'm down about 4lbs.  Kind of a nice bonus.  If I stopped eating a bowl of popcorn in the evenings, I'd probably be down even more.  :)  

I'll cut the popcorn to once a week and see if I can't take advantage of my damaged gut to lose a few pounds before it heals and it becomes harder to...

First Kiddie Birthday Party, I Ate Carrot Sticks

Posted by nvsmom, 04 July 2012 - - - - - - · 275 views

I took my boys to a kiddie birthday party today, and it was the first time that I felt like I'm missing something.  They had a wonderful cheesecake, various bowls of chips (no idea of the brands), a few other snacks, and a plate of veggies. I ate a few carrot sticks.

It wasn't awful passing up on homemade cheesecake... okay, yes it was awful but it...

Acceptance Is Coming

Posted by nvsmom, 30 June 2012 - - - - - - · 130 views

I have so many things I need to check for gluten!  Mostly vitamins and remedies.  I took a Hyland's Calme/forte tablet in the middle of the night when my son kept waking me up and I was unable to get back to sleep.  Within a few minutes I had a stomach ache that kept me awake... the opposite of what I was hoping for.  lol

About half of my vitamins...

m2 - no snack - out of house running a field trip.
m3 - 3-4 egg leftover
m4 - apple
m5 - bratwurst, sauerkraut, peas, cottage cheese, yams
m6 - bowl popcorn and spices

Grrr

Posted by nvsmom, 28 June 2012 - - - - - - · 132 views

Today I'm just annoyed.  I'm mad that I've had this for 30+ years and didn't figure it out... and that my doctor had no clue even when I went to see him about it as a child.

Grrrr.

Apparently pain is NOT normal for most people!  Most people don't have pain moving or eating... I feel quite ripped off!

Grr.

It Is Celiac - Without A Doubt

Posted by nvsmom, 27 June 2012 - - - - - - · 235 views

Bummer.

I went for my appointment today and I was half expecting the doctor to say I was fine and then I'd have to decide to go gluten-free on my own... but with the back-up plan that I could probably abandon it some day... Nope.  :(

I definitely, without a doubt, have celiac.  

The home test I did, with not quite enough blood, gave me a very faint...

Results In But Dr Won't Give Over Phone

Posted by nvsmom, 25 June 2012 - - - - - - · 476 views

I called my Dr's office today because I was starting to strongly suspect that my results were in but they were normal (or very close to normal) so my doctor didn't call me... he's done that before.  In fact, that seems to be pretty standard practice for drs around here.

Anyway, I was right and the results were in but they won't release...
