In Topic: Newly Diagnosed And My Whole Life Ahead Of Me

When I first came on this board someone told me that one day it would all seem like second nature to me.  I read that little piece of advice, thought 'yea right lady" and had another pity party.  One day I woke up and realized that it really was all second nature.  I can throw together a fast take-on-the road lunch with no stress.  We took a week long road trip and I didn't stress or bat an eye as to how to manage food.  It all came naturally.  I am almost 5 years into this and it's like it's always been that way.   


Get your paleo mom to share with you.,  That is an awesome (and easy) way to go!


And to who ever it was that shared that little piece of advice.......Sorry I stuck my tongue out at you message and called you a rude name.,   You were right! :D

you could look at it like this..... at a friends home you don't have to help clean up after dinner !  Seriously, yes, life does revolve around food.  It just does.  And it sucks!   Friends say lets go out for dessert, or coffee, or....whatever.  And now you are odd man out.  Yup.  Not fun at all.  After a while it does get better and easier.  You really do leanr that grabbing a cup of coffee is just that....a cup of coffee and no rolls.  It's more about the social part and not about the food.   There are many pity parties to be had.,....and that's ok.  This is a grieving process of sorts as you do have to grieve for what you can't have.  One day you will wake up and feel ok about this.  You will.  In the meantime no one on this board will fault you for crying, stomping your feet or doing what you need to do!   Honestly, how thankful you will be that this was discovered at your age and not 30 years down the line.  Grab some gluten free wedding cake and celebrate life.

Can you put a sign on your desk that says "no food" or something like that.  The last three years I worked part time and the crumbs that would show up in my keyboard.....ugh!!!!!

I have been constipated since I was an infant (according to my mother!).  They called me the Constipation Kid.  Great nickname! lol  That said, my C became worse after I went g.f. and the dr was unable to explain that.  At almost 5 years I still suffer bouts of it from time to time especially if I eat much in the way of processed food.  If it's in a package then it doesn't work for me.  What keeps me going (no pun) is a daily breakfast that includes sauteed greens, kale, chard or spinach.   If I really get off track then a night or two of Smooth Move organic tea will help get things back on track.

Most corn and soy is a GMO'd food item and can cause digestive problems. I would work on cutting out as much corn as possible and all soy.
