Mojo Returning?

12 posts in this topic

Hey

I am so excited. I just had a NORMAL day!!!!!

I looked after both kids at home while one got over a bug, did 3 loads of washing, 2 runs of dishwasher, cooked meals, made Christmas decorations with kids, made calls, tidied up.

That might not sound impressive to everyone, but I have dragged myself through the last few weeks, 3 glutenings, tired, crabby, couldn't concentrate.

I have been gluten-free since September, and have generally improved. I had a couple of really good weeks in October, then better than pre gluten-free but struggling.

So far it is 1 day, but even if I only get the odd day like this, it is so good to feel like me. It makes it easier to keep going. My plantar fasciitis has gone again too, no more hobbling.

Wishing good healing to you all :)

That is awesome. Psh... not impressive? Maybe to the rest of the world. To us? We totally get it. It starts with one day. Next thing you know it'll be two, then three and eventually you'll stop counting. They'll just be intermittent good/bad days. (That is where I am.) Congratz on being normal! :D

That's great MW! Nice to feel like a person again eh? Keep up whatever you are doing and the good days should get more frequent. :) Turning it around so the bad days are the unusual days is a definite possibility Congrats!.

Thanks everyone

Hoping for another good day. Apart from anything else I need my brain to sort out paperwork and get the house sorted. Maybe I will get my Christmas cards done too :)

You guys are brilliant. You are all so on my planet! Nobody else gets it... Nobody else understands.

That one normal day... Bliss! I had one last week, actually no, I had 2! (I thought I was doing well until they said my intestines are still damaged)...

May your days of normality stretch into a lifetime!

I was amazed at how good I felt when I decided to go on the Medifast gluten-free diet. At first I thought it was the new influx of protein in my diet. And then I thought it was the pounds finally coming off, but now I do truly think it is the lack of gluten I am taking in.

I keep reading as to how folks are feeling better once going truly gluten-free, and now I think I am finally joining the crowd!

I have never had the outward symptoms most others have had, have always been anemic, have been plagued with migraines for the past 10 yrs., and osteoporosis has made me have both knees replaced at 53. But now I am truly feeling like actually moving around, exercise is not the torture that it had been. And I find that I am accomplishing things in my days that I never thought I'd be able to complete. So if this is gluten free - I am willing and able to continue with the new lifestyle.

I just saw this thread (sorry to be so late) and wanted to say WHOOHOO! to getting your mojo .....and your groove.... back, MW.

(sorry you have the flu right now, but that is just a crappy part of life and soon you will be "good mojo-ing" once more.)

Addy will make fun of me now for making up another word.

I "get" why those days of feeling "like yourself" once again are cause for celebration. Hope you see many more of them in the coming weeks.

    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".  
    • Thanks cyclinglady & manasota! I appreciate it. I came to give an update...... I'm still 99% itch free. I get a "place" like a bug bite once in a while that itches and I just use the prescription steroid cream on it & that takes care of the itch. My rash is healing up rapidly everywhere. Almost clear skin now! Yaaaaayyyyyyyyyy! Now for a rundown of the "treatment". For 20 days I took a 100mg doxycycline twice a day. Then we upped it to two 100mg doxy twice per day. I took those for 5 days & made rapid progress and the itching stopped. The doxy was getting my tummy though. It was getting really rough despite my eating yogurt. So on day 6 and day 7, I took two 100mg doxy in the am but in the pm I just took 1 of them. On day 7, I was nauseous for hours on end. So since I was still doing well without itching and the rash was healing everywhere, I decided to cut back some more. On days 8, 9, & 10 I have only taken two 100mg doxy in the am and none at night. I'm doing good and my tummy is much, much happier! No more nausea!  I'll update as things go along.
    • Many things can damage the small intestine besides celiac disease: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ Happily, I can share that I became a Great-Aunt this week for the first time  to a charming little boy. Sadly, my lovely 19 year old niece was diagnosed yesterday with Crohn's.  She had so many symptoms of celiac disease, I was sure she had it.  Actually, I was hoping that she'd have it, because Crohn's can be much worse.  At least there is a "cure" or known trigger for it -- gluten!   Anyway, your daughter might be suffering from something other than celiac disease.  It is possible.  It could be a food intolerance (e.g. milk).  My niece has suffered for years with periodic episodes of abdominal pain, vomiting, etc.  She doesn't have all the "classic" Crohn's Disease symptoms either, yet a recent pill cam revealed a lot!  Her endoscopy was normal.  Celiac panel normal.  Gallbladder scan normal (non-functioning gallbladder is a family curse).  My heart goes out to her, but at least we know what we are dealing with.  Will she ever get celiac disease?  It could happen. Keep advocating, Mom.  That's what I kept telling my SIL.  I also provided my SIL  a family health history tree that each GI was happy to receive.  Unfortunately, no one has had Crohn's in the family.  But, at least it allowed him to test my nieces gallbladder and for celiac disease (a full panel,  mind you).   It would not hurt to get a second opinion.
