Thank God I haven't been glutened in a while. I think I am getting better at scrutinizing things and I am also refraining from things that I am not sure about. I had 2 communion parties last month and took my own food to both. At least I didn't get sick!
I am still having a rough time with what to eat though. It seems that I am still not able to tolerate a lot of other foods. Rice and starches do me in. I can have a little piece of potatoe but if I have anything more I get bloated and feel ill....(but not gluten sick!) I have to rotate raw nuts.......if I eat anything roasted the oils get me sick. I tried potatoe chips but the oil make me sick too........again...not gluten sick just sour bloated gut that lasts a while.
I still can't have any type of beans or lentils...........I had the smallest amount of fresh lentils that I made and was blown up for 2 days.......NOT FUN!
I have been talking with the nutrionist at Columbia Presbyterian and she has been guiding me a lot. the thing is that I am getting discouraged. I am trying so hard to eat more and vary my diet but it is not working. The only thing that makes me feel better is avoidance of all the things that I am intolerant to. Trying to add back a little at a time is not working. I think I might have to accept the fact that I have to keep a very simple and limited diet.
To make things more difficult my Interstitial Cystitis is really acting up and I can't tolerate any fruits and some vegetables (especially those high in potassium or acidity) they are a killer on the bladder. I have been addressing the bladder problems with my urololgist so I'll spare you the horrible details.......but it hasn't been fun. Of course this now means I am not getting enough fiber which brings on a whole bunch of other problems. I just can't seem to get it balanced yet. When I feel that I want a snack I usually wind up having something and then paying for it later...........with IBS or bladder pain. As for gluten though..........I am doing pretty good keeping away from it. I have read that if you stop the gluten then a lot fo the other intolerances might get better. so far that has not been the case with me and doesn't look like it will be. I am tired of having gut problems :(

Have you read the book Breaking the Vicious Cycle: Intestinal Health through Diet?? There are some of us on here that have read it and are currently following the diet. It really "cleans" you out and helps you to heal. It should help with all your conditions and problems. Hey, it is worth a shot, right?? :)

Hope today finds you feeling better!!
