Kyleat92 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithI Need Help!Hi guys,
I really need your help, support and advice
I self diagnosed myself around last November because I was investigating why as a kid I had huge weight gain. Turns out removing gluten from my diet not only made me drop from 90kgs to 70kgs, I felt healthier and mentally happier.
At that time I was working in a mining town and had nothing to do but be completely dedicated to my eating and having complete control over my diet and exercise.
Two months ago I moved from there to be a professional musician. I'm currently on tour for the next two months and im ignorant to my condition! Everytime I go to eat anything I know has wheat or gluten in it, I just think "oh its ok, my body will get over it in a few days". I don't have huge reactions. I just stack weight on, my brain goes foggy and I sometimes get a small rash on my wrists.
I need a way of fighting this. It used to be so strong willed against all things gluten but I'm weakening. I've already put on 8kgs in the past 2 weeks which I'm highly self conscious about.
How do you guys fight it? I know being strong is hard but I need help returning to being there.
Can you at all help me? I'd owe you my sanity!!
