Just a quick vent here... I have been feeling so dragged out lately and unmotivated. I know/knew it was the gluten but didn't know exactly what.. and didn't feel well enough to figure it out. Finally a few days ago I eliminated a couple of things(I hadn't realized contained soy) out of my diet and took some liquid iron which helped some. I have enough energy now to come on here and look for some more answers. I am so thankful for this forum.
My problem? Cross-contamination. Wooden spoons, plastic (cracked)spatula, etc. Why I didn't look at that before, I don't know. Dead brain cells from years of gluten exposure...? :P And also I felt so good initially from going gluten free. I didn't think I would get more sensitive than I was... and yet I knew, you know, from reading this forum. Anyway, now I have hope that I can get up and running and back to 'normal'. :D

Spring has sprung! Hey Irishheart back atcha! TOMORROW! That's our group,s big potluck. I am so glad I am able to enjoy this. I am going to be on my knees praying over that potluck! This is our first and I know that not everyone has the same level of concern about cc yet (and the finger would have been pointing back at me if I hadn't figured this out). Plus I haven't heard anyone say... 'I have a soy issue.' except me... so...
Hoping Sunday will be a 'Happy Mother's Day' with no cc issues from the night before. :P
