Getting Tired

6 posts in this topic

I have been messing with my diet here and there testing out different things, some I have been lucky and happy :) I tried but most things I have regretted dearly :( ! I am going to take a break on trying different things for a while and try again in a couple months to expand my diet more than it is. I ate tonight at Golden Corral. I know stupid me but my husband likes it from time to time so I ate a salad and a piece of fish from the skillet fish, and some icecream with carmel from a pump. Now I am having issues with my stomach. I thought I was playing it safe. Not getting any of the hot foods and keeping to a salad, and a piece of fish. I was wrong!!! :(

I know I have only been on the diet for a few weeks, and I feel like I am giving up to early, and shouldn't be dealing with this many issues right off the bat but I am. Could I be over reacting? I guess but I don't like running to the bathroom within 30 minutes of leaving the table and then there is the bubbly belly for the rest of the night. :angry:

If everything you ate was indeed gluten-free, I would think the possibility of cross-contamination would be huge at Golden Corral.

It's only been a few weeks. There is a lot to learn. You need to be patient with yourself. It will be worth it in the end. I felt like I was aging in reverse for a long time as I got better and better. I kept finding new symptoms which I hadn't even known were caused by gluten. It was worth every bit of frustration and difficulty. Good luck.

Thnaks, for your encouragement. I dont want to go back to gluten.. ever! :D

I'm just feeling frustrated by all the things that are making me sick. I knew doing this there would be a learning curve. My parents are gluten free and have been for 10 years now. I know that thy cheat a little bit here and there they tell me that they do, it took them 5 years to be able to eat small amounts of gluten without having issues. (small amounts would mean eating something like the filling out of a pie and leaving the crust, sushi the black wrap has wheat starch in it, most fast food restaurants due to CC) I know its going to take some time, I have the hardest time around my husband, its not his fault but he loves to eat and that used to be one of our things going out to eat, but now it seems that's out the door for the most part. (hubby works out of town through the week)

I chuckled at your comment of( "over re-acting).. I think as humans we think of the worse & hope for the best...

The more serious you are at the beginnning the better you will be at the end ...

CC is big anywhere you eat out but salad bars have tons of CC. Maybe you should have spoken to the mgr &asked if you could have a salad with whatever veggies from the storage bucket, still not safe but better than salad from the bar area....not even sure they would do this...never hurts to ask..

You are still so new to this lifestyle change... We all wish it could easy & fast but for most NOT... Also keep it simple to give your body a chance to do its healing..Tyr not to focus on what you can't do or eat but what you can have... Your mental attitude is just as important as healing your intestinal issues..body, mind & spirit all three must be in order for a complete healing to take place...

Take a deep breath, try to relax a little & enjoy knowing you are on your way to better health..positive thinking please.....

hugs

I am doing my best to stay positive but when I get hit with unexpected CC (ok slightly expected) I get kinds discouraged. I'm thinking its time to put my adventurous side, aside and just stick to the basics and eat at home for a while.

    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
    • Spicely Organics has both cassia and true (Ceylon) Cinnamon and are certifed gluten free along with the rest of their spices, as to tea Republic of Tea has most of their products tested and certified gluten-free also. You can visit their sites or try Amazon.
    • Thanks for replying. I have been a vegetarian for 31 years, I guess my diet now means I am a vegan but not by choice. Blood tests have picked up a lack of protein and I have seen a dietician who said she couldn't help me and referred me to a specialist who deals with IBS, which I don't understand as I don't have that.   I don't know my blood glucose levels but I think I will find out. I know Hashimoto's and type 1 diabetes is common in Celiac's, I asked my doctor for a thyroid antibodies test but he refused but I'll ask for the type 1 diabetes antibodies test. Thanks again.
    • Hi thanks for this. The kidney function test I a few weeks ago came back normal but there was a question mark over ketones, they said it was all okay, then last week the doctor rang me as there was ketones in a urine sample and I have to repeat the test next week. I'm a bit confused if they weren't worried about the blood test.   I feel for your brother, that sounds awful what he's been through. I have started to get some pain in the leg that is permanently numb, I really hope I find some answers soon. Thanks again.
    • I haven't seen my gastroenterologist for a few years.  I was diagnosed celiac and have been gluten free for more than 5 years.  I've been having trouble again for the past 6 months or so.  I've done a full elimination diet and have come up with the culprit - eggs!   I did a search of the forum here and have found it's not uncommon for people with celiac to develop a sensitivity to eggs.     I can forego eating eating eggs but It's getting to be flu season.  I was planning on getting my flu shot today, as usual, at work.  The pre-shot questionnaire asks if I have an allergy to eggs.  As, I have never been tested, I don't know if this is really an "allergy".   I asked the nurse about it.  She said that if I do have an allergy to eggs,  it could be dangerous to get the vaccine.   So, I didn't ended up not getting the vaccine.  Anyone else in this boat.   Has anyone actually been tested for egg allergy?   Any advice as it pertains to the flu vaccine?
