10 posts in this topic

I realy cant understand some people behaviour ...i was with a friend,we were eating together(i had my gluten free food wille she was eating a big mac hamburger cheesburger..i didnt understand very well what was it but it had such an awfull smell)She offered me forgetting i can't eat it ...the following dialogue took place

Me - Shall i open the window because of the smell?

Her - Yes ...is it smelly?

Me - Yes very much .

Her- Well ...i know its a garbage but i realy love it i could never stop eating it

Isn't it weird that she called her food garbage but she could never stop eating it??? This is crazy...realy i mean ..o.k maybe someone doesnt know that the food is unhealthy....but what kind of sane person whould know that a food is garbage and whould continioue eating it??? I know i dont have the right to judge anyone ...i mean if someone wants to eat stinky smelly full of chemicals products its his own right but...HEY!!! Why do we have the brain??? If you know something is unhealy and you eat it beaucse you cant stop ...well that means that you became addictid to it..and thats one more reason to stop eating it....Does anyone hear about addiction to fruits or to vegetables or to meat??? Fast food,junk food is not food..it looks like food but its not.

It's because people get addicted to all of the flavor enhancers, chemicals, fat and sugar in those processed foods. The companies who make those "foods" add stuff to them to get people to keep eating them.

I know smoking is bad for me, but I haven't quit yet. Junk food is the same way. I used to LIVE on junk food. I LOVED it! I knew they SAID it was bad for me, but it hadn't killed me yet, so I just ignored the warnings and continued to eat, yes, garbage.

I can't stand the smell of it anymore either. If people could get away from it for just a few months, I think most would never go back to it.

No kidding! I'm a recovering food addict, with a very strong remedy! :huh:

This past summer my fam dropped cable tv and picked up Netflix. My husband got in a mood while I was vacationing with the kids and started watching documentaries on Food Habits. When I returned he had me sit and watch one or two with him. "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" started it off for me. Then there was Food, Inc. followed by one that talks about the beverages we drink that come in plastic containers (which dissolve into the drink before we even purchase it), and an entire slew of other videos that twisted my brain AND my stomach (seriously, seeing a man remove a 'plug' from the side of a living cow :blink: and thrust his hand into the cow's gut while the cow is eating, :o and say it doesn't hurt them???--eeewww). <_<

Ironically, since watching those shows, I'd found I couldn't drop the addictive habit which has become a way of life for so many Americans. I tried...lasted only 3 days for the juice diet, felt great, but old habits tend to be ingrained and I was back at the grease-joint, suckin down the liquid sugar.

Then in November, the most embarrassing thing happened. :unsure: I got the most severe case of... hemorrhoids! :blink: Oh my, I didn't know docs operated on them, seriously, who talks about that stuff!? So...in I went for surgery (after 3 drs said they weren't going to touch me and referred me off to the next specialist!) to remove internals and externals the size of my dr's thumb! :huh: (The cause: Two back-to-back days of Sonic's Chili Coneys with a side of cheese tots and a soda, just to ease a craving!). Spent an extra night in the hospital because of the pain (and night nurse was only permitted to give me ONE dose of morphine!) :blink: I laugh about it all now, but ooooh! if that isn't a life changer!

For one entire week I could only handle taking in apple juice (yes, out of that dreaded dissolving plastic bottle). I didn't dare have a bm, and since it takes up to 3 mos or more to heal I'm still scared of that natural part of living! :blink:

The forum for these operations mentions that most people will return to the diet that caused them. Sure enough, I'm one...but!...oddly now, I can't stand french fries--they taste like salted cardboard coated in grease. Anything greasy makes my mouth hurt, and my gums itch. Soda, chips, and many candies now cause my tongue and throat to swell and I suddenly develop sinus issues and a slight cold! I don't dare touch anything with gluten as it requires a chaser of a very large dose of a laxative (and cancellation of all activities the next day!). <_< I still go to those junk food havens, but I found, I don't eat like I used to! I opt for salads with no dressing (what is IN those??); baked potato over fries; and I choose chicken over beef, even though they are both deep fried there is just something about beef at fast food that makes me feel blah! and I can't swallow it (even steak!). And I've switched from soda (with an occasional child size when out/about that takes me all day to down) to tea and filtered water which is now always at my side. :D

And the smell. It turns my stomach so that I'm just not interested in eating. The smell of fresh baked gluten-bread will turn my stomach some days, but I feel hungry after smelling it (have to retrain the brain; it's all a mess!).

This is what our country has come to. We are so trusting that we don't question what is put on a plate in front of us. We are a country of addicts, but we are stubborn addicts and don't like to be told what is/isn't healthy for us. :angry:

Sometimes it takes a surgery in a certain part of the body <_< to make ya change your ways because ya really, REALLY become aware of what you eat! :blink: (I wouldn't wish that surgery on my worst enemy!!) :unsure:

Glad you vented! I agree. We have become accustomed to eating "garbage".

My husband and I were out and I had to go to the bathroom really badly and the only place around was a Burger King. I ran in there to the bathroom and the bathroom actually smelled better than the restaurant.

It truly is garbage...Expensive garbage.

I love that you shared your experience in the hospital! That is really food for thought!!! :P I'm sure it wasn't easy to share that and I'm so thankful that you did. I eat insanely healthy (a "nutritarian" diet, wholly plant-based) but I do get tempted from time to time to eat something I shouldn't. (Cheese is a nasty temptress!) Now I will think of your experience and it will help me behave!

I thought you and the OP might be interested in looking up Dr. Doug Lisle and his ideas about "The Pleasure Trap". It explains why human beings get addicted to fat, sugar and salt. It is truly fascinating!

I also loved Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and Food Inc. Have you seen Vegucated, Planeat or Forks Over Knives yet? They are absolutely worth your time. As is Earthlings, though that one is hardcore.

90% of people KNOW most of the food you get in any fast food place is bad for them and they continue to eat it. I live, eat and breath food because of food allergies and Celiac in my child. I know what too much and the wrong things do to a persons body. Has it changed the way I eat? To a point. I still get Whoppers when I go to Burger King. Sure, I know better but it's also my choice.

No reason to judge others for what they eat.

I also know plenty of Dr's, nurses and other medic professionals who smoke or drink to much. It's life.

McDonald's puts a bunch of sugar in their hamburger buns to make their food more addictive. There is even sugar in the french fries. :blink:

Who knows. I've never eaten a Big Mac and have never wanted to. Not only do they smell bad but they look and sound bad too.

    • Squirmingitch, I forgot to mention best of luck to you during the storm! I hope you are safe and that your home isn't impacted too badly! I'm on the coast in SC so we will see some storms from it but nothing near as bad as what you will have. Take care and good luck.
    • SquirmingItch, I really appreciate you gathering info for me! To answer your questions, yes, I'm on Dapsone now and have been on it for about 4.5 weeks. I have been gluten free for the same amount of time. I started on 50 mg of Dapsone which didn't seem to help much. I spoke to my doctor about it and after about a week she raised it to 100 mg. Since then I did notice a huge improvement in both my rash and itch. I no longer have any active rashes and my itching isn't completely gone but it's very minimal. I have been getting weekly blood tests done and will soon be moving to monthly.  My DH skin biopsy was done before the gluten free diet and Dapsone. My results for the skin biopsy came back as inconclusive, but even with those results, my doctor was convinced I had DH. I specifically asked her about the fact that she took the biopsy directly from the lesion rather than next to it and if that affects the result. Her explanation was that if it's a fresh enough lesion that isn't scratched, there should be IgA antibodies present. But she said that an inconclusive result isn't surprising because the IgA antibodies come and go from the skin so quickly that it can be very difficult to get a positive result, even in someone who is positive.  That's when she decided to run the celiac blood panel on me. And even though those results came back positive for the deamidated gliadin and negative for tTg, she still is very convinced that I have DH. I am happy that my doctor seems to be certain, but I would just feel better if the results were more definitive. The one other thing I am waiting on is I have been asked to attend grand rounds at the local academic hospital in 2 weeks. I guess grand rounds is where all of the academic dermatologists and dermatopathologists get together to review certain complicated cases. They will meet with me, review all of my pictures, biopsies and blood tests. My situation has been so complicated so they asked me to come. I am hoping maybe then I will get some more answers. 
    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
