In Topic: Gluten Free 1 Month, Questions

29 October 2012 - 03:02 PM

I just have to echo everything that has been said. I never had digestive issues before going gluten free but I had lots of others. Now that I've been gluten free, I found out, the hard way, I have digestive issues when I accidently consume gluten. Ugh! The first few weeks are the hardest. I was starving all the time but eating lots of protein helped a ton. My dd was supportive but had no intention of eating gluten free. However, as I learned to cook differently, she actually prefers it now. It takes time for a family to adjust.

In Topic: Going To Try Giving Up Lactose, Too

Don't despair! It's hard sometimes but there are some good substitutes. I love almond milk and almond milk ice cream. Very good. Smart Balance has a good butter substitute. Cheese can be tough but Daiya is ok. You might get dairy back later too.

In Topic: Even My Mom Can Be Rude About Celiac

Aw I'm sorry you had that happen on Mother's Day! I find mixed responses in my family. My daughter has been fantastic about it. My mom is trying to understand it more but won't get tested herself (she has IBS, MS and Fibromyalgia). So far the only real response she gives is a grunt and a "that sucks" when I explain what gluten free means. Hang in there and take care of you!

In Topic: Revlon Makeup?

16 May 2012 - 11:09 AM

I use Bare Minerals. I'm very light as well and it works well with my skin tone. It's more expensive than Revlon but it lasts forever. I have a hard time with makeup matching too. I think you can buy at Target now but you can go by their stores in the mall or Sephora and get a sample first.

In Topic: Celiac Disease And Anxiety

16 May 2012 - 10:58 AM

Yes! I believe my anxiety is directly related to gluten and casein. I've battled anxiety on and off for a long time but a couple of years ago before I gave up dairy, my anxiety was unbearable. Every little thing would trigger it and it would last all day. I gave up dairy and it improved as did some of my other symptoms but it was still there. Since going gluten free, I haven't had a bad anxiety attack, only some smaller "moments" of anxiety. Those seem to be related to getting glutened about a little over a week ago. I think I will always be prone to anxiety but it is NOTHING like it used to be.
