#764565 I Realy Don't Understand Some People..

Posted by on 13 January 2012 - 08:24 AM

I realy cant understand some people behaviour ...i was with a friend,we were eating together(i had my gluten free food wille she was eating a big mac hamburger cheesburger..i didnt understand very well what was it but it had such an awfull smell)She offered me forgetting i can't eat it ...the following dialogue took place
Me - Shall i open the window because of the smell?
Her - Yes ...is it smelly?
Me - Yes very much .
Her- Well ...i know its a garbage but i realy love it i could never stop eating it
Isn't it weird that she called her food garbage but she could never stop eating it??? This is crazy...realy i mean ..o.k maybe someone doesnt know that the food is unhealthy....but what kind of sane person whould know that a food is garbage and whould continioue eating it??? I know i dont have the right to judge anyone ...i mean if someone wants to eat stinky smelly full of chemicals products its his own right but...HEY!!! Why do we have the brain??? If you know something is unhealy and you eat it beaucse you cant stop ...well that means that you became addictid to it..and thats one more reason to stop eating it....Does anyone hear about addiction to fruits or to vegetables or to meat??? Fast food,junk food is not food..it looks like food but its not.

#764507 Why Do I Now Get Sick From Gluten When I Didn't Before Going Gluten Free

Posted by on 12 January 2012 - 11:15 PM

I can’t believe the response that my post created. Thank you to those that provide positive and helpful comments. For the others, how dare you judge me for being a bad mother you don’t know my background and who I am. I would never pass judgment on others especially without knowing them.

First off I have taken being gluten free very seriously from day one. The day I found out I immediately removed gluten from my diet and got all new kitchen supplies. You all should know from experience and what I have read is that most of us go through a phase of depression with Celiac. Everyone’s story is different so no one should judge anyone. My story goes like this my first son was only 9 months when I found out I had Celiac. I was trying to learn to be a new parent and deal with now having Celiac. I even had my son tested and the genetic test for the gene as I will with this baby. Then six months after being diagnosed I was blessed and got pregnant again. My first trimester was horrible so tired I couldn’t function and feeling sick all the time. I felt horrible for 3 months and could hardly eat anything and started to lose weight. But the only thing that sounded good was some of the old foods I used to eat, gluten free actually made me feel sick. I have and always will be a super healthy person eating right and exercising everyday (even up to the day I gave birth). If you have been pregnant you know that your hormones get way out of whack. I started questioning my gluten free diet because I felt I had lost all social side of my life it was not for the occasional pizza or cookie because I hardly eat those items anyways.

I thought about it long and hard and asked my OB her opinion if it would be of any harm to try eating gluten again and she said “NO”! I agree that I should not have taken her advice and rest assured before I even posted my question I was not planning on eating gluten again.

I have found that no one is truly an expert on Celiac. There is still a lot of research that needs to be done. Half the time my specialists can’t even answer what I think are simple questions like “are there different degrees of Celiac?” “From a scale of 1 to 10 do some develop extremely bad symptoms at a 10 were others are a 1 and hardly have any issues and could go on living eating gluten?” If the medical community cannot even answer this simple basic question I find it hard to believe anything I read about Celiac Disease unless the person has science to back it up. It sounds like many of you have extreme cases so you want to spread the word and I can appreciate that but without more research we just don’t know. No one in my family has had a lifelong of pain and suffering and two Grandma’s lived to over 85 and my grandpa is still alive at 90. So if no one in my family has suffered the consequences of eating gluten/Celiac Disease and it is a genetic disease so I got it from someone where is the science to show why this is the case?

Think twice next time you pass judgment on others!

I am not a doctor ,i can not answer any question as if i am but i am Gluten intolerant/Sensitive and i talk through experience. I am gluten free for two years it can be difficuld only the times you will let it to be. Celiac/Intolerance for me is like a spectrum i broad rage of differend ways of affecting someone who have it it can affect gut,skin and nervous system ,you can be born with it or develop it later ,it can affect your brain fuction,you may get negative blood test but it doesnt mean it doesnt affect you in any way . No one has a reason to hate you or not be supportive. I guess you may be on denial ,what shocked the most is that you are pregnand and you dont have the time to take a risk to eat something its bad for you ..its not safe to eat gluten since no one knows how this will affect your baby . Its unpredictable you never know any time how it will affect you and the impact of it...in my county we have a quotation....take care of your clothes to be able to keep the half of them .

#763285 Gluten And Violence

Posted by on 08 January 2012 - 07:29 PM

Thank all of you for your kind words and support. Its very imprtand for me and i think for everyone to know that there are othere people who are going through or have been through the same. Its also importand to speak to people about it to tallk about it to friends to familly about what kind of physical and mental problems it can cause. I am willing to speak for anyone who wants to listen . Imagine how many people have been diagnosed with mental conditios that is nothing more than gluten intolerance/sensitivity...its so simple untill you figure out but yet so complicated because it destroy you and your life so secretly and quiet that its not easy to realise. Im very inerested into write a book about my gluten experience i feel that its like a duty to me to talk about it. No person should have to deal with something like that ,knowlege is power.

#763209 Gluten And Violence

Posted by on 08 January 2012 - 03:30 PM

Hello. My name is Anna i'm 20 years old and i am in this forum to share my story and also to learn more about other people with gluten sensitivity/intolerance.
It seems gluten has a very extreme and rare impact in me that even my doctor doesnt agree with it.He doesnt agree that gluten affects my behavior.( But of caurse i dont trust him because the evedence proove me right).I become extremely violet argessive paranoid and ferious.Its like i am another person not able to function with no control on my reactions. My story goes back years ago ...when i was a child almost 7 years old i was violet with others and my self beating up and puntchig my head ,throughing things against the wall, breaking plates or glasses, kicking and slapping my mother without a reason.She took me to psychologists,to psychiatrists who suggest me to take Risperdal but of caurse it didnt help me...nothing seemed to help me and year after year was getting more violet ,getting more fat. I was extremely isolated ,i had was always late at school because i wasnt able to sleep at night and because i didnt get sleep for days i was collapsing from tierness ,i lost many years in the same class because of that. I was sleeping 4 tnight per week and the rest i was awake ...nothing seemed to work ......I was growing my anger issiues were growing as well....Tow years ago i was readind about Autism in an article of a magazine ...it get in my ming so i start searching about Autism ...i start thinking that i may be Autistic...and i suddenely find out about autism and diet...And here it comes.. gluten...i start reading about it about it and how it can affect the brain and the body...i decide with my mother to make an experimend and i went gluten/wheat free....Within 2 weeks i became a total differend person..my mother said to me that she never saw me smilling....and that was true i never laughed or smile ....my skin became lighter and smoother ...i lost 9 kg in 7 mounths just by cutting out gluten,people who had seen me before go gluten free and saw me after couldnt belive my change ....the firts thought was that i just grow upand my behavior improove...i understand their subspeciousness ,only my mother knows because she witnessed the hole differences. For tow years i was clean of gluten and not a single fight with anyone,nothing what do think and say has nothing to do with how i was ..Its amazing how this proplem destroyed me for 18 years. Its tradic to realise that something was taking control over you ,sometimes i feel ashamed. I did so many wrong things i know that it wasnt my fault because i didnt choose to be born this way ...but its the need and the wish that if i could turn back the time and as a child could become more couriost about Autism then i whould be able to know what was wrong....but i know this couldnt be possible.I somehow feel proud for myself because i was the one who discover it . Althought im not a celiac my mother is ger gluten intolerance affect her in the gut i guess my in the brain. I had also made another experiment i went back to gluten this Christmans for a week in the start i notice i start geting a round belly and in the end of the week i had i fight with three people(i still try to remember the reason but i can't)and i had a realy badfight with my mother again....after tow years.....in a week.....thats shocking. I feel the need to share my experience and reminde to people that since we are what we eat ...whe have to pay attention to what we eat as we pay attention to what we are. I am realy dissapontent by the way doctors treated my case ,because my blood test was negative they dissagree that i have any problems with gluten at all and i was wrong...but i know i wasnt ,i trust my instict what i see and feel. I know that my life wasnt easy ,the life of those who were next to me as well but since now i know what made my life difficuld im not willing going back to this that i call "dark era "of my life
P.S I m sorry for my English but its not my mother language.
