I have been enjoying the *taste* of gluten products this week, that I'm eating for Dx purposes, but less so the symptoms. I had a lot of fat/white mucus in my stools this week, sometimes going to the bathroom 3 times a day (never happens to me), bloating, overall confused/foggy spirit, depression, dramatic borborygmi. I'm sad and feel undesirable, and boyfriend cares about my BM "in the abstract", so no pg-17 details (which I understand), I appreciate that though I'd like to be able to describe the details too and feel less horrible. I had a few drinks while we skyped today, it raised my spirits. I just hate my body, how it reacts, and not knowing (yet officially) what's up.
I just noticed the cool blog feature of this website and decided to create my own and have some kind of outlet for all my gluten issues. I am seeing a GP tomorrow to get blood tests done, although I will try to see if there is a way for me to not be back on the Bad Stuff for the full 12 weeks, as that is impossible for me.
I have been eating full gluten meals today for the first time in a while and I. Have. So. Much. Gas. Awkward. Not to mention the Belly™ and the lower stomach pains. I also have a breakout on my back? What the heck is even my stupid body. Anyhow, I am just hoping tomorrow goes well and that I can find my answers fast. I haven't considered what will happen in case of negative results... Sigh. What else could this be?
Going to bed with the pregnant stomach now. Looking forward to the start of constipation and/or diarrhea tomorrow.
P.S.: that meme tho
