I've not been feeling good for the past couple of weeks and it's really starting to make me doubt whether I'm on the right path. It seemed to start with a trip I took a month ago when I was cc'd over and over. Well then I pet-sat and received glutteny kisses from 2 dogs as they were still chewing their treats. Then it was my conditioner, then it was the dog shampoo and eating with my hands directly after ( :blink: ) and then the grapes last night (no gluten, just high salicylates). I've been trying to go low sals to see if that helps at all given the array of foods that don't seem to agree with me. It's the only thing that makes sense because my reactions seem to follow no pattern (except that I react to higher sals foods) and sals are cumulative, I've learned. I'm having a really difficult time giving up fruit. If there's one food group I would never want to give up, it would be fruit.

I've been supplementing with vitamin D, B12 and a multivitamin, taking probiotics and digestive enzymes. I'm worried that I'm creating more issues by doing this. I should be feeling better not worse, right?! Some days are fantastic – like amazing... and then this happens. I know I need to give myself time to heal, but I'm worried that I'm doing more harm than good here. It's so frustrating. On top of that my mom is so concerned about all of this and how I'm feeling. It breaks my heart when she asks how I am feeling and I can't tell her that I'm happy, or that what we are doing is working... My dad (who is the gluten eater) went away for a week and I noticed an improvement with my symptoms. Maybe it was just coincidence? I know I could be more careful in the kitchen... :unsure:

I just want to feel better and I don't want to do the wrong things. I feel so clueless about it all.

Thanks for listening.

I had some apple cider over the weekend (very high in sals) and I feel glutened from it. If you have a problem with sals, this could be it. I am struggling with the same thing as you right now. Check out the sals thread in the DH forum. There is a lot of great info there.

BTW, your dog is adorable!!! Whats his/her name?

Sweet babies! I love their names.

Hopefully we will both be feeling good soon! Hang in there.

BTW, I can not go near grapes. They leave me feeling glutened from the sals. I find that I can tolerate red apples and strawberries and pears. LIke you said, they add up over time though so I try to limit it to one fruit a day and try to stay away from the high sals ones. (although, I drank liquid sals on sat. in the apple cider) and I can def. feel it.

I learned my lesson – stay with known safe foods! I seem to be able to tolerate those, too (yay!). Bananas have definitely been a staple.

Very complicated. :huh:

Thanks – you too! :)
