In Topic: Getting Over Paranoia Of Being Glutened.

26 August 2014 - 06:50 AM

I think this just means you're very careful. I have dreams where sometimes someone will offer me a donut or i will eat something my mother made for the family like i use to. And once i bite into it, i start screaming at myself, saying this has wheat and i know it so why did i eat it! lol and i would be spitting it out. And it's silly because when i'm awake i know i will definitely not make that kind of mistake in real life. I am very careful and i think it's good we are since it's our health we are risking!


In Topic: Coping With The Isolation And Rage

26 August 2014 - 06:44 AM

When i found out what was making me sick, i never felt any anger. I just straight away told myself, ok this is what i need to do to get better.

Don't get angry. You seem very informed about this, so use that to heal yourself. I haven't been doing this very long but i always put myself first and haven't let others affect me. If they're all eating something i can't, i go and make myself something safe and delicious and eat too.

 

My doctor was useless too. I did all my research and continue to all the time so i can keep learning. My family all eat gluten foods and there were some minor arguments when i was trying to adjust such as me putting my own mini oven in the kitchen even though there wasn't the space. Just keep doing what you need to do. People around you will get use to it and accept it eventually and it will be easier. 


In Topic: Managing Nausea From Glutening

26 August 2014 - 04:26 AM

I just had the worst headache and what really helped was taking an allergy med and lying down for a while.

I took Telfast which i normally use for hayfever but it did help and i noticed after an hour the headache pain was gone even though it was still there. :)

 

 


In Topic: 5 Years Gluten Free- Encouragement For The Newbies

26 August 2014 - 04:24 AM

Thank you for posting this encouragement :)

I have a wheat allergy and have been struggling with the lingering symptoms now and then.

I was diagnosed with wheat allergy around 2.5 years ago by my gastro specialist. When i went back to my GP with the results and told her i think i might try going off wheat to see if i feel improvements she was very discouraging of that saying i should just keep coming back to see her and maybe run more tests. I did not go back to her at all after that because she was a waste of my time and just wanted to make money off me by getting me to show up to useless visits without helping me! Even till this day i can't believe she thought it was ok for me to not cut out wheat even after i was diagnosed allergic!

 

I was on my own so i went off wheat and noticed the intense pain i felt every morning was gone and continued from there. It has been tough learning everything but these forums have been my support. Every time i felt sick i would come here and read other people's struggles and feel i'm not alone and it will get better if i keep trying.

Late last year i started going through my skincare and make up. I am wheat allergic and use to get hives all over my body. I later realised it was during the time i used a body lotion with wheat germ oil that i would react. I am still testing a lot of products at the moment and still trying to figure out what is safe for me. At the moment i am still struggling but just recently i had a glimpse of what it feels like to feel OK. It only lasted a few days but i felt like i could do anything if i felt this good the rest of my life. Everything i held back on and was too afraid to do seemed slightly more possible.

I hope to feel good and better consistently for a long long time that i don't feel like this is a struggle anymore. It is easier now but i still slip up now and then by accident. I hope everyone keeps posting all their experiences here as it has been so helpful to me and others.

 

Thanks everyone :)
