In Topic: How To Get Back On The Horse?

Thanks, everyone for all the great suggestions!

I do have a different experience than a lot of people with gluten issues, I think. My symptoms don't come on in sudden, severe attacks, but build up over time. That's why it took so long for me and my doctors to figure out what the heck was going on. Once they peak, they are pretty bad, but like I said... I have no willpower! So, it's really easy for me to think I can have that one brownie, which leads to another, and then batter-fried fish a few days later, and then... vicious circle. Definitely need to keep lots of good snacks around and work on the mental imagery.

Thanks, again! :)

In Topic: Brain Fog

17 September 2011 - 01:03 PM

Brain fog is one of my biggest issues, along with extreme chronic fatigue. Before I figured out the gluten connection just a couple months ago, I was really starting to worry that there would come a point where I wouldn't be able to function well enought to do my job. It was also the first thing I noticed an improvement in after going gluten-free.

For me, I guess it's most similar to a 'stoned' feeling. It feels like my mind is working through mud or something. Someone can be talking to me and I won't be able to follow anything they're saying. Like they're just speaking gibberish or something. If I get distracted during a task, I have to really think hard to get back on track even if its something I've done a million times.

I'm currently having a relapse of all of that since I've fallen completely off my gluten-free diet. Constantly reminding myself how much better I function and feel while I'm on it will be the only way to get back on track, I think.

Ooh - thanks for the tips about the WalMart brand and where they're farmead! :blink: I did get this bac at WalMart, although I don't think its their store brand (not sure) so if I don't like them I'll try them from somewhere else.

Do they re-heat well for leftovers? Or is it better to just make what yo're going to eat at that meal?

In Topic: Gluten Withdrawl?

Thanks, everyone! Glad to know it's mostly normal and will go away. I hadn't thought of Gatorade - that's a good idea. I drink a lot of it in the summer to stay hydrated, but it hadn't occured to me that it could help with electrolytes any time. Mine do get out of whack from time to time.
