#629477 It's Official....i Am Crazy!

Posted by gary'sgirl on 05 August 2010 - 04:26 PM

I'm so sorry to hear that you are feeling this way. I have felt very similar, and it is a very discouraging place to be.
Don't give up! You are a very important person and even though you don't feel like it now, you have something to offer to the world that no one else can.

I think that the suggestions so far are good ones and worth trying, but I wanted to add one more thought. I have been sleep deprived for years and before we found out that I had Celiac and all the docs just said nothing was wrong with me my husband would tell me that being sleep deprived can cause many problems in and of it's self. It can cause health problems and (just to show the seriousness of it) sleep deprivation is a tactic that is used when people are tortured and trying to be broken down. I guess I just share that - not to freak you out - but to tell you that all that is happening to you emotionally has nothing to do with the person you are, but something that is happening to you is causing your mind and emotions to be something that they wouldn't normally be. I wonder if you could also focus on trying to do something that will help you get regular sleep. I know that it would help at least to take the edge off of things.

I really hope you start doing better soon! Keep pursuing your health.

#626175 Assuming Some Foods Are Gluten Free

Posted by gary'sgirl on 23 July 2010 - 07:01 PM

Corn chips are very often cross contaminated. Even if they don't us gluten in the ingredients they are some times fried in the same oil as other thing with gluten. I don't trust them. I agree with what most people said... buffets are a scary place indeed.

#625762 Nausea?

Posted by gary'sgirl on 22 July 2010 - 10:56 AM

Thanks! That is very helpful! I was fortunate in that my bodies response was initially very fast and miraculous almost. I will happily deal with some minor nausea while I continue down the path to healing. I bought some gluten free Ginger tea last night and it's helpful. I am sensitive to a lot of sugar, so candied (which I assume is another name for crystalized) might be problematic for me. I had gastric bypass surgery 3 years ago. But I'll do a google search and find out the details. But regardless, thank you so much! It's always helpful to have someone tell you that you are "normal!"

Thanks again!

Something interesting that one of my doctors happened to mention a couple of months ago when I was asking about B12 deficiency, was that usually you only see B12 deficiency in people who either drink a lot of alcohol and don't eat much, have some kind of health problem that involve the small intestines not absorbing nutrients properly (Celiac), or who have had gastric bypass surgery.

I know that one of the signs of B12 deficiency - which is common with Celiac Disease - is nausea. It might be something to look into and ask your doctor about because it sounds like you may have to separate issues that could contribute to having low B12.

Hope you feel better soon. Let us know.

#620606 Family Get Together @ Pizza Place

Posted by gary'sgirl on 30 June 2010 - 11:02 AM

That is sooo ignorant and just plain unprofessional. I think you should bring a bagged lunch anyway and just wait to bring it out until they have brought everyone else their food. I doubt that they would have the guts to tell you that you couldn't eat it then.

I'm sure these situations are why huge purses are in fashion now a days. ;)

#612670 Does Anyone Have Bad Reactions To Quinoa?

Posted by gary'sgirl on 24 May 2010 - 06:11 PM

Hey, I just thought I would add that I have had very bad reactions to quinoa too. I thought I had to be wrong, but sure enough every type that I tried made me sick (flour, pasta and the whole grain).

Oh, and when i realized it was the quinoa that was bothering me I went to Ancient Harvests web site and they are probably one of the most safe companies to buy quinoa gluten free. They really take extreme measures. The only thing in their gluten free line that I would be careful of is their quinoa flakes, because they are processed in a different facility.
