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 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?  
    • Thanks for replying. You've been very helpful and given me some ideas of trying a few foods in small amounts. I wish I had rotated food months ago then it might not have got so bad. Thanks again and I wish you well.
    • Until my recent blood test results I've been having cinnamon and mint tea in the mornings, which seemed to have a positive effect calming the digestive system (and tastes good too!)  After the first step of diagnosis with high Iga TTg I took at look at the cinnamon sticks I make the tea with and it says "packed in a factory that may contain wheat, corn etc. etc." so that I guess would sound alarm bells for many I reckon. That said I'd imagine the way most of these herbs and spices are harvested isn't exactly gluten-free friendly yet I've seen quite a few recipes using it. How are people getting around this as I can't see any specific gluten-free certified cinnamon products out there? Really could do with my tea back P.S. I also have chamomile tea using the raw flowers which may have a similar background but seem to be less of a risk somehow?
    • If I do have to go back on gluten for a bit it'll at least be a temporary relief from the withdrawal symptoms (or at least what I hope are just withdrawal symptoms). Today's returning malady is acid reflux, something I'd thought I'd seen the back of recently. Really need that to calm down as PPIs the doctor gave before were evil medication and caused 10x more problems, possibly the worst I've ever felt whilst on those so won't be going back there! Although the scales seem to have stabilised in terms of weight loss in myself I feel like I'm wasting away at present, what with the random pulling sensations in muscles and tender head area I'm just scared for what other illnesses may be laying in wait related to the celiac genes  Think I'll head back for the ESR and CRP blood tests next week as the shoulder and temple pains are really worrying me right now, could just be the gluten intolerance but the other options are terrifying if not caught early. So much uncertainty, apart from the fact that none of this ever gets fully better (if at all)...
    • You're welcome! Good luck! And if you get nowhere there, remember, the higher you go, the nicer they get. Skip straight up to the top brass.
