I've been suffering from gluten exposure recently and because I don't "look sick," I started coming up with ways to describe how I feel. I have several symptoms, but the best thing I've found to get my point across about the pain is to say that it feels like I swallowed a porcupine.
I stepped it up by doing something fun. On my author blog, I dressed up a picture of a porcupine to "zombify" it. Green eyes and everything. "Forget brains...must destroy guts." Because there's no mercy to the pain and no perfect way to stop it than time. I'd post it here if you guys want me to, but I haven't even showed it to my boys because my 6-year-old is afraid of "zombies." lol. Didn't know if it would be okay here.
Anyway, creating the picture turned out to be fun. Kind of like hitting the bulls-eye on a dunk tank with a someone who knows how to throw insults.
So what are some creative ways that you can come up with to describe what gluten does to you?
