Poll: gluten-free Diet - Easy Or Hard
Posted 29 December 2010 - 06:21 PM
It does get easier though, it looks like. I made myself a "Gluten Free Notebook" so I can document the cookware I need to buy, steps to eliminate CC, supplements, etc. and also document my progress with the diet. I think it'll help (plus I get to give into my office/school supply fetish, lol).
I replied (in my head, alas) with expletives that I don't think are allowed on here. xD
Self-dx'd Celiac just beginning my very bumpy gluten-free journey. My healing process is looking a lot like my deterioration was (rather non-linear)...
Praise be unto the (gluten-free, vegan) Flying Spaghetti Monster for the folks who worked so hard to raise awareness (and Internet to access it)! Y'all saved me decades of suffering most likely.

I just wanted to say how extremely sorry I am for you. I can't imagine what it must be like to be able to eat only 9 foods. I pray that it gets easier for you and your little sweeties. Gosh, I hope it does. Do you think as you start healing you will be able to introduce different foods?
Oh, thank you for your sympathy. It's great to be able to vent to people who get it. Nobody in my real life does, and that makes it even harder. I had a friend over this weekend who looked at my list of foods and said "Oh that's not bad at all! That's a lot of food - you can do all kinds of stuff with that!" I said that that's literally ALL I GET. For a week or so it's no big deal, but long-term it's become a huge source of grief for me. She shrugged her shoulders and said "you're overreacting, it's no big deal" as she chomped on cookies and pizza. I could have punched her. It really, really hurt to get such a flippant attitude about my personal hell, you know?
I hope and pray that this is just a matter of healing time, too. I do a lot of praying and that's getting me through. For now, ha!
