In Topic: Has Treatment Helped Your Relationship?

11 July 2011 - 02:41 PM

Hi there, I am sorry to hear your relationship is not where you would like it to be. As someone with gluten intolerance, I can only give my response from that perspective. When I started dating my now husband, almost 6 years ago, gluten intolerance was not really that heard of it. I had been sick with all the normal gluten symptoms my whole life but doctors could never find anything wrong. When I started dating my husband, he knew I was often sick, but loved me anyways, however I will say it did and still does put a strain on your relationship. Constantly being sick led us to either not go out anywhere, or know that if we went out I often got sick. (this was before I went gluten free) We generally just stayed home and watched tv because I felt so crummy. My husband used to tell me to go to the doctors and to do something about it, and I will admit it often made us argue. However, over time as I think my husband matured, he saw that his girlfriend was sick and in pain and just wanted me to get better. After I found out I had a gluten intolerance I became a different person. Once on the gluten-free diet I stopped getting so sick and my mood improved dramatically as well as our relationship. I will definitely say that going on a gluten free diet improved my relationship with my now husband and I hope it does the same for your marriage as well.

In Topic: Anxiety Relief From Going Gluten Free?

23 February 2011 - 06:41 PM

Wow. I am really loving reading this site. I have had social anxiety since I was a little kid, and no matter how hard I tried to deal with it it never worked. Interesting to think that staying on the gluten free diet may help with my anxiety. Can't wait to see what prolonged gluten free eating may do with the anxiety. My husband would be thrilled if my anxiety went away and we could actually go out without me feeling uncomfortable.

In Topic: Still Bloating After 2 Months?

23 February 2011 - 06:27 PM

Hi thanks for your reply. To clear some things up that you ask....I was still eating naturally gluten free items when we moved, but could not find gluten free flours, processed foods, snacks etc, which made it easy to cheat on my diet and eventually stop completely. SO it was more a cheating on my diet then stopping completely. Stupid I know.

I have not added anything new or dramatically increased any foods in my diet.... I have simply been eating naturally gluten foods as well as prepackaged gluten free foods that I did the first time I went gluten free.

I do not believe CC is an issue either despite the fact that my husband is a gluten eater. When I lived with my parents and was gluten free they both were gluten eaters. Everyone, including myself are very careful with food preparation.

I actually do not keep a food diary. I started one once, and just found I did not have the time to do it every day and/or forgot to do it every time I ate something. However, what I eat remains pretty the same, so I generally remember what I ate and if I felt sick afterward.

As for the dairy, I was thinking about doing that...but what I was unsure of is why the first time I went gluten free, and was gluten free for 9mths did I feel so great, and this time I still feel like crap? I was consuming dairy then as well as now, so not sure if that is an issue.

Just tired of always looking bloated. Thanks for your help though :)
