I've Been Gluten Free For One Year!

Recommended Posts

Last May I had my celiac blood test panel and stopped eating gluten. Well, stopped intentionally eating gluten. I spent the summer getting sick and learning all about hidden gluten, until figuring out that CORN was just as big a problem.

Well, really, corn is a bigger problem. It is hidden in more places and without labels. For example, I just recently learned that corn is in iodized salt. Maybe this source is the cause of my always aching stomach. But it does seem like I am still finding other sources of discomfort. Like most recently, mushrooms. And skins of almonds.

For some reason I thought that after a year symptoms would have improved. Or at least all the intolerances (or allergies?) would have been uncovered. Sure my, um, lifestyle change has me eating healthier but sometimes I wish I didn't have to eat. It is just such a bother!

Sorry, I am in a downer right now. I tried eating some Zankou Chicken after hearing assurances that it was gluten, soy and corn free and now I feel nauseous. Blah.

Happy First Birthday!

Sorry you aren't feeling great yet...but as you point out you have learned a lot...this knowledge will bring healing...unfortunately it can take months and years...doesn't seem fair...so stomp...yell..I have a time or ten and then get up tomorrow and try again...one day (hopefully very soon) you will be amazed by the improvement.

Until then...hang in there :)
