Fell Off, Now To Get Back On!
0

8 posts in this topic

I was diagnosed with gluten intolerance earlier this year and had been doing really well. Until the past month. I fell off the wagon. I've been eatting gluten and feeling miserable. I hate feeling this way and I hate what it does to my children and friends. Today is my first day back on and it's a struggle. I need to get my life back and relationships. Sorry having a HUGE pity party today. I hate withdrawal. The hard part with the gluten free diet for me is I LOVE gluten, and am a vegitarian who is a picky eatter. Sigh.......

Sometimes I wish we could all be put into an induced coma until the withdrawal passes. (It would work for smoking too.)

Hang in there and when you need to vent, this is the place. :)

The good news is, it will pass and soon, you will feel great again!

Hang in there and if you have a craving, make yourself some gluten-free muffins or something to take the edge off.

Thanks everyone! Its been about 4 days now, I'm feeling LOTS better. My attitude has improved, and my head is much better. Along with a ton of other things. I'm also down 2.2 pounds! Whahoo! Stupid GLUTEN. I hate how it draws me in. I need to not cave anymore!

Think of it the same way I do: RAT POISON. ANTHRAX. CYANIDE. MAGGOTS. :lol:

Should I continue??

Welcome back to "clear head central"!!

The brain fog is so powerful a motivator for me, I know I'll never knowingly ingest gluten again.

I think of it like Irish as well, poison.

I've heard drug addicts tell me how glorious a cocaine binge can be, and I've never been tempted because I know where that goes for so many people. Gluten is just as dangerous for me.

I couldn't agree more, that's exactly how you have to think about it! Good luck!!😃

Personally, I think the people who don't think of gluten as POISON are the ones who struggle the most....are the most tempted...have the most doubt. Even when they've proven what gluten was doing to them...

Somebody should make a Gluten Scared Straight video...with the sickest among us being interviewed... It should be required viewing in medical school, too. IMO

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
