newly joined the group.this is great! wish i joined earlier. i was diagnosed 3 months ago and ive resistent to joining any type of group because of i guess my ego telling me i could do on my own not that big of a deal, but i cant relate to almost everything on this page! your advice is great really helpful
a84c72 i'm sorry your family is giving you hard time, i do think they will come around.
i am sort of having the opposite problem with my mom. she means well and i appreciate that so much, but its like answering a million and 1 questions everytime i sit down to eat i cant take it. i also made the mistake of telling her i was not feeling 100% better yet and she freaked out, and now has found someone who swears she can, and i quote....."cure me" with herbs. i have not gone in to meet with her yet but everytime i talk to my mom she brings it up. anyway i told her i wouldnt be so close minded about it but has anyone tried anything similar? i dont know if im ready to try them because im a little nervous honestly but if it will help and get me to the that 100% mark faster i guess im willing to try.
just out of curiosity how long does it take to feel normal again?
thanks for letting me vent/rant a little bit, it helped to write some of this out, thanks in advance for any advice. wishing everyone happy easy gluten-free holidays!
i really dont know, its a great question i am hoping more experienced people will answer. I was just diagnosed 3 months ago and while i understand it hasnt been that long i find myself furstrated and that im not 100% better by now. I thought when i found out it was great just change my diet around and all better, no meds, surgeries, whatever..., and i did get a little better but now it seems to have stalled. i just want to know if that normal or if im doing something wrong. this whole thing is frustrating and im starting to resent the whole diet. I dont why im becoming so bitter about it. i feel like everyone always says their depression or moodiness got better with the diet, but i feel like thats just starting with me. did anyone else go through something similar????
fyi gas x worked intially for me but then not so much i think just overused it idk but might not hurt to try (this ws before i was diagnosed havent checked the label or anything so just check before you do hope it helps/ also i give you a lot of credit for sticking with it while in college, but maybe you have to talk to your roomates again)
