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.

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

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

    • Gardasil And Celiac
      I have this same issue! I got gardasil in 2009 and have never been the same since. Celiac disease, thyroid problems. I used to be healthy and active and since I got that shot I have never been the same.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
