#635800 I Really Need Some Level-Headed Advice...

Posted by on 30 August 2010 - 11:52 AM

One other thing to consider is the psychological effects of continual glutening. Although new to the diagnosis, I am a 60 yr old nurse. We are very stubborn and figure we know it all. I don't think the effects of braindfog can be understated....My judgement WAS impaired!!! It is really scary. I didn't get just how much an effect it was having. It is possible that once you are in the home cooking for your family.....and I would suggest trying to enlist EVERYONE's cooperation...tell them it is for YOUR benefit!!
that your mother might improve....or...maybe notice a Real difference when glutened. I know, I did. My reactions got severe!!! My thinking got much clearer and I was able to see the difference my diet was making. I hope for everyone's sake that life improves.

Wish i had some magic answers for you...I don't!!! I am really new to this myself and having a terrible time coping as well. I wish i could say that being older, wiser more educated etc...made it a lot easier...I am not certain that is true either. Experience and, I think time helps...what REALLY helps...is planning!!!!! Advance planning. I work on call, on the road, for several days at a time. i started checking out every fast food restaurant and grocery store and convenience store...planning just what I could grab. I have become pro active in eating out. I check out places in advance. I am now the person who suggests where we eat. I have phoned sooo many places and asked if they can do gluten free. I have had some real surprises too. A couple of places have been more than willing to work with me. One actually knew all about it although didn't advertise it. Yeh and I carry stuff with me. Ideal???? No but it sure beats being sick and the diarrhea etc that went with it.In most places there are safe alternatives to eat. Not what you were used to but safe. I know it is not a Big Mac but there might be a great place with stir fry and rice noodles???
