Thank you so much for your reply! Yes just barely gluten free almost a week or so I think, give or take some mistakes and mislabeling. My doctor doesn't recommend red meat or a lot of meat for family history so I can have chicken or fish on the light side, bought some gluten-free broth and rice so I could try that I guess the goodies are what I'm afraid of and breads and things... a whole lifetime of it bringing me to a severe immune reaction I think I will try them but wait a bit and just go slow. Fear of another severe reaction must be fueling this I think. I'm so glad everyone has been so supportive in helping me figure this out. I will try the soup! Thanks again. Much appreciated.
It sounds like you're just barely gluten-free. You will still have some reactions while your gut is healing because the gluten isn't even out of your system. It took a couple weeks for my constant diarrhea to stop and I was still having GI problems off and on for a couple months. This isn't like flipping a switch. There is a lot of inflammation to settle down.
Don't be afraid to eat! Most people with celiac are not super-sensitive. It's good to avoid the dairy. Other than that, have meat, veggies, fruit, nuts, eggs, rice, potatoes, beans, and any specialty gluten-free goodies that look good at the store. Let the gluten-free diet do its work and be patient.
A lot of people with tender stomachs find that meat/vegetable stews are the easiest to digest and it's super-easy to make a pot of soup that's gluten-free. Do you have a favorite chicken soup recipe?
