i think that we do hide it so well, we don't look sick. i was glutened recently and it takes TWO WEEKS to recover from a hit for me. after about 3 or 4 days, everybody forgets that my body is still so sore and sick and out of whack. "what's the matter? why are you so tired? why don't you eat ______?? it's gluten-free.... " PEOPLE. IT TAKES TWO WEEKS FOR ME TO RECOVER. seriously, i should wear a countdown clock on my head or something. and i hate to keep saying, "remember TEN DAYS AGO when i told you i got gluten. well, it's the gift that keeps on-a-giving even if *you* forgot about it, doesn't make me 'better' any faster.
honestly, repeating myself about stupid gluten makes me feel/sound like a hypochondriac sometimes. but here it is, day 15, and i am out of bed, dishes done, laundry put away, etc. what a difference from even 2 days ago. i am loading up on protein today, can't get enough of it today.
don't feel alone, ((hugs)), and thank you GOD for this forum. y'all have a blessed day!!
