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.

    • Good grief!  :o. I'm so sorry, I wish there was something I could do or say to help you.  I agree with the NP, your primary needs to be requesting copies of your records from the other doctors, as well as the records and lab reports from your hospital stay.  They are supposed to work together as a team, not just individually out in left field.
    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep.
