Feeling a little overwhelmed and sorry for myself today. For the past 3 years I've been learning about my gluten intolerance. I am intolerant of gluten, soy, dairy, corn (and corn products such as vinegar and citric acid), gluten-free oats, quinoa and nightshades including tomato and potato. This even includes liquor like potato vodka. I know I'm SUPPOSED to be able to tolerate this....but I cant.
So, basically, I've been strictly gluten free for about 1 1/2 years now. I have severe heart burn. Better with medication. Most of my gluten symptoms such as numb limbs, face, etc. and severe stomach upset and gas has gone away. Its magic as long as I stay away from gluten and the other offenders.
At this point though I'm just angry. I smile and say its no big deal. I get by and there are lots of foods I can still eat. I put on a brave face most days. I am truly happy to have my health. I keep holding out hope that some of these multiple intolerances will go away as I get better but........
A part of me wants to say screw it, eat a bunch of gluten and call it a day. I get really frustrated and sick of being "ok" with it. Some days, it sucks! I hate that I can't go out to eat anywhere like every other normal person. I hate that people think I'm being picky. I hate the sympathy I get from decent people. Multiple intolerances SUCKKKKK! I also hate that sometimes I get sick from foods that AREN'T gluten. Not fair! It makes me so angry at my body.
So, I just needed to bitch everyone. Needed to whine and throw a hissy fit! Thanks for listening!
