No-Cooking Celiac Options?

18 October 2014 - 04:34 PM

hi,

 

I am gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free.

 

I have severe depression and most days do not have the energy nor inclination to cook from scratch like I usually do. Eating at or ordering from restaurants gives me too much anxiety about CC that it's not worth it, unless the entire place is gluten-free.

 

I've been eating crap like rice cakes, bologna, sausage, chips, sometimes store-bought guacomole. sometimes I bake chicken or splurge on coconut-milk ice cream.

 

I don't own a microwave.

 

I'm taking a food-based multi to try and address any problems with malnutrition. sometimes I don't eat vegetables in days.

 

food budget is a maximum of $350/month, less if my depression keeps affecting my ability to work.

 

I'm just trying to hold on until a series of appointments where I can begin getting treatment.


Eye Problems?

11 September 2014 - 09:05 AM

So, I've been gluten free for many years and I am very strict about it.

 

Recently--for the past month I'm guessing--I've been having trouble with blurry vision, eye pain, and strain headaches.

 

This was a pre-celiac symptom every single night that went away slowly when my diet changed. I used to have this problem every night, but now I only have it like once a month or so.

 

My last known glutening was a minor exposure about two weeks ago. We aren't sure what it was exactly, but I had, about 12-24 hrs later, crushing depression that lasted a single day, and then vision troubles, headaches, and acid reflux that's still lingering.

 

Does anyone else have this eye problem? Yesterday I was fine; day before yesterday I had to leave work early because I couldn't read anymore. I don't want to have to leave work early today by losing my vision!!

 

Is this a symptom of glutening for anyone else? is it a sign of another sensitivity? vitamin deficiency? why would it happen some days and not others? my computer usage, amount of time spent on my cell phone, and amount of time spent reading small print & books remains unchanged between days where I have blurry vision and days where I don't.
