I've been doing really well over the past few months. I've avoided any accidental glutenings and slowly but surely been feeling a little better. Over the weekend I wasn't feeling particularly great, some sort of bug or another. I was just generally nauseous so I stuck to mashed potatoes most of the weekend. Eventually I felt better enough to move on up to chicken soup and had some chicken rice soup in the freezer so I popped it out and had a bowl yesterday. I knew right away it was a mistake. It was something I had made a few months ago, but I guess I did something then to contaminate it.

Now I'm foggy. I keep getting easily distracted, I even just stop what I'm doing in the middle because I forget what I'm doing. Even if it's a conversation. My head is killing me, I'm gassy but I'm too scared to fart. (Which is admittedly mildly amusing to me. :D ) I feel like my stomach has a porcupine in it, which oddly enough the only thing that helps with that is constantly keeping just a little teeny bit of food in me. So I've been just barely grazing all morning. Which is awesome for the heartburn I'm having. <_< Maybe I just just graze on Tums. Everything hurts. I think my hair hurts. I'm too exhausted to be out of bed and have too much life going on this week to be in bed all day. (Thankfully watching a toddler doesn't require more than sitting on my bum.)

This is my first time since I've truly started feeling better. So now I really truly know what it's like to get hit full in the face with this crap. I've smelled pizza before and thought gee that smells good. I'm not sure I'll ever have that thought again. I feel like death today and I know I don't feel half as bad as some of you guys (gals) do when you get got.

Bummer - those accidents are hard to avoid completely, but as the reactions become more severe they sure do reinforce the need to stay gluten-free.

You'll still think pizza smells good - but will likely think - how can I replicate it gluten-free instead of wanting to actually eat it.

Hope you feel better quick :)

I'm so sorry to hear you are sick! I have no advice, but I can offer you a (((HUG))) and my best wishes for a speedy recovery. In the meantime, here is a little song that always cheers me up. There are no giraffes involved, but maybe it'll cheer you up too.

Are you sure it was the chicken soup that glutened you, and not something before you started feeling ill with that bug?

I was glutened for the first time last week, and it started with what I thought was a bug. After a couple of days those buggy symptoms went away and were replaced with more typical gluten stuff, like stomach issues, headache, disconnected feeling, and anxiety. It's taken a few days, but I'm about 75% better now.

At first I thought it was two separate things, but now I'm convinced that the two were related because I'm absolutely sure I ate nothing that could have glutened me while I was ill with the flu-like stuff.

I'm sure. While it has been a few months, it has always happened swiftly. I've gotten glutened at a pizza restaurant, from not reading ingredients appropriately and from CC in my kitchen. Every time I am in my bathroom in about half an hour or so. I am very aware of how fortunate I am to react so quickly so I can identify the offending item easily. Also, other than I think a handful of Kix and one of what I call my imaginary cookies I think all I ate all weekend was mashed potatoes. And yes, I am beyond 100% certain it wasn't the cookies.

Sometimes people just get sick and it's just being sick. I had no massive explosive D over the weekend so it was certainly not gluten. No way, no how.

I had a very similar experience. I really thought I had the flu! High fever and all.... then I realized it was a gluten reaction. :(

Not just Kix... when I was lamenting about putting up with my husband's whining about how there are no kid's cereals for him someone turned me onto Trix! For kids my butt... Trix are for celiacs.
