I know where you are coming from and it all sucks. I am 38 and was dx in June. I have headaches, moody like a witch , brain fog, lose everything, can't focus, can't slleep and the fatigue is killing me. I have three children and a hubby who think I am crazy. My hair is falling out so bad that I will have to go get a wig. So I feel for you. I thought I just had to bacically stay away from bread and pastas. Only wish, there is like 100 ingrediants that we can't have. Gluten is everywhere. My advice read, read, read! That is all I do. This site is great for advice and finding new foods. I eat alot at home, even though restraunts try their best I still feel sick most of the time after eating. And no you can't have frosted flakes! There are many books and sites to go on to find out what to eat. It has been 7 months and I still can't figure this thing out. I can have wine, life is good. Take care and good luck.
I was dx in June and still can't figure this out. not fair and not happy. I am 38 years old and used to love to eat. The worst for me is my hair is falling out so bad and rapid that I look like a cancer patient. My advice to you is get books and read,read,read. You will find things to eat. Maybe 10-15 but better than nothing. Good luck, Kari
