I'm too busy snickering... okay, Bwhahaha, laughing my guts out. I need this.. Karen..... Feels good to laugh. Sorry, Karen I didn't recognize you all dressed up.
I have to say, I live a boring life when I read back through here... but someone has to be the contrast, right?
After feeling so bad for so many years (only about 7 which is nothing compared to some but...), I now feel so good. Cough gone, aches receding, energy back, gut beginning to heal. I guess feeling better (eventually) is a given. I am more responsible about what goes in my body, more aware of the amount of processed foods out there and what that means.
I think one of the biggest positives is finding an empathy for people who do not feel well, who are undiagnosed but suffering, and what it means to 'have a reaction to' something. I understand now, when someone says they can't have something that this could cause unbearable symptoms. I really didn't know how much a person could suffer from food issues until I became one.
I've been constipated all my life too and since going gluten free I am 'moving' everyday, sometimes 2 times a day. Health folk often say we are supposed to have movements after every meal... if they are healthy BM. I feel so much better now that I am gluten free and this is part of the total healing - having healthy elimination.
If a person suffers with D, this is a whole different story.
