How Do You Cope Post Gluten?

Those damn delicious cadbury eggs! I ate 2 minis and 2hrs later comes the sweating, chills, horrible cramps, D, nausea, headache, exhaustion and the list could go on! What was I thinking?

What do you do to handle the aftermath? I was diagnosed Celiac just 10 weeks ago, but I still can't believe I was so careless. It is a reminder to be so careful, that's for sure.

I wish there were some kind of miracle pill for this!

I tell myself no, its not worth the trouble.

 

I don't do candy anymore for a reason. As a child i only really ate atomic fireballs (had to stop after my tongue decided to go all rough and irritated and last for a week or two without the ability to taste and being really sore), gum does the same (cinnamon flavor). I think its due to the red food coloring in it... (this was before i knew i had major problems with it) There was also a similar incident with another type of candy on a stick, but i think that it was just too much sugar at a time (candy has long since stopped being produced). Made my tongue rough but not as bad as the red stuff does (no hurting, no loss of taste, no irritation). I had to stop chocolate because my GERD would act up so bad that it wasn't even worth it.

 

My favorite "candy" at the moment? Take an apple, cut it up. Refrigerate honey overnight in the fridge. Put some honey on the plate with the apple as a dip. Honey turns into the consistency of a soft caramel. Yum, Yum.

 

Lots of water, foods that are easy on the stomach, and heating pads are lovely for those unwanted cramps.

You have to find your way around things that you can't let go of. For me it's cookies... totally addicted. But if you want some positivity about this whole experience, check out glutenfreegirl.com - amazing articles about her life gluten free and great recipes.

 

It will get easier, you just have to embrace it as part of who you are as well as not letting it define you.

 

As to coping, probiotics to replenish what your body just flushed out, crappy but awesome movies (trash TV works too any guilty pleasure), lots of blankets or whatever you need to feel comfortable, and water.

Pepto Bismol and aspirin.   Lots of water and pro-biotics.  Maybe some peppermint tea.
