      Afraid To Be Turned Away...again
      Brief History?

      I found out I was hypoglycemic at age 10. My mother baked horribly so I didn't eat much of her breads. Even though they were all whole wheat and honey. I got married at 19 and we used to eat french bread all the time. That's when the bloating started. I was always really skinny...but after than, I started getting the bloated tummy and bad constipation.
      In my 20's it got really bad. I was gaining 5 pounds a week and it hurt just to touch my legs. I had bruises everyehere. I gained 40 pounds in 2 months.

      I went to seek help and the Dr. prescribed Gas-ex. I was mad, but took it...Finally I got so scared I stopped eating all but one meal a day. Wheat, rice and any other grain triggered the bloating.

      I haven't had issues like that until the last 2 months. With money being tight, I've started eating bread, and beans and rice...I can't digest it. I know it's fermenting in my stomach, that is now very distended and it hurts to push my belly button back in. But it does with a gurgling whoosh. I eat once a day, but I feel like I can't swallow. I physically, feel the food get stuck in my throat. I have heartburn all the time. And then the gas, that I have to hide and pass. Burping and the other...*blush*

      The other day I was in so much pain, I had diarrhea and was vomiting all day

      So, I started taking some Pro-biotic pills and stopped eating any grain, but had some rice cakes the other night. Woke up in so my pain, I couldn't hardly tie my shoes.

      I'm on my third day of eliminating all grain from my diet. I want to go into the Dr. But I don't want to waste my time on a fake diagnosis...
