I've noticed people are like oh so just dont eat wheat and you're fine? They don't get the pain and the reactions to it or the long lasting effects. I enjoy responding the a stupid comment with one in return I probably would have used a stupid voice and repeated the comment then paused and said oh ya i do.
I found this funny clip from one of my favorite comedians today, he is one of us now.
Ok I have to ask, are we upset because we think the others are being rude or the fact we can't eat like we once did?
The fact is this disease is still very understood. I'm new to this and explaining to everyone in my life about it so they can understand about what I need to do, but it is unrealistic to think the whole world is going to stop for us.
I'm in upper management and one of my stores had an amazing week, so when I went there I bought them lunch to celebrate, when I asked them what they wanted they all looked at each other and asked what I could eat.
I said no, what do you want and they said pizza...........so I bought them pizza.
I cannot expect everyone around me to change for me or feel bad for me since I can't eat like before, nor do I.
I do have rules in my home location such as my computer and phone is not to be used by anyone else to avoid contaminating it, but I'm not gonna sulk around my co workers for them eating foods they can enjoy and I can't.
I have been gluten free for about 6 weeks, and the pit in mt stomach pain seemed to fade away after a couple of week. But yesterday its started to return and is worse today. I have been very careful and don't think Ive ingested any gluten.
I am completely exhausted by evening to train, I may have to try lifting in the AM to see if I can get it done, I've been tracking my nutrition using fitday and am having a hard time getting enough calories in now being 3 weeks into gluten free.
I'm only just starting week 4 of being gluten free, but have had fatigue issues for over 2 years since my back injury, I can sleep an entire day away, if I didn't have to be at work I would be sleeping. I'm ramping up the vitamins now and hoping for some positive changes soon.
