4 Months And Stressed Out

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

As of late I am in tears almost daily, flipping out at my husband on the subject of food. I am like constantly harping at all the flipping rice he wants to cook. I know the rice dishes are easy for him as due to my work schedule is different from his. He works days I work overnights. I feel I yell at him if I have to have rice things two days in a row or more often than I want out of fear of developing more intolerances. I know he is trying but nothing calms my fear or temper at things. I am frustrated at buying juices that are high in sugar that leads to more outbursts. I hate being this scared that I'm constantly loosing my cool at the one person who has my back. I've gotten to where I never go to the store with him to get food as I don't want to bicker at what I call doing things wrong based on my fears and frustrations. I mean the poor guy went vegan when I did to show support and opted to go gluten-free to avoid ccing but all he gets from me is stop with the buying so much rice product. I want to do things like subbing grains for things like using veggies in place of quinoa or rice noodles in a lasagna. Yea there are other things stressing me on the side like seeing other people out doing things non celiac related things that seem to maybe help alibi ate stress but can't do due to time conflicts. Plus while I like new projects I'm learning I feel those are starting to stress me too. It just seems food seems to light the fuse causing the tears.

If it helps, I'm pretty sure that there is no scientific evidence that eating too much of something will cause you to build an intolerance to it.  Think of all those people in Asian countries who eat a ton of rice every day.   The adjustment period with this condition can be hard.  Hang in there.  Hugs.

I know where you are coming from, as I try to take care not to overdo rice also. However, cut yourself some slack, you've only been G.F. for 4 months and you're vegetarian on top of it. I'm vegetarian too and I know the extra challenges that come with combining the two.

 

Hang in there!

You won't develop an intolerance to rice from eating it too much, but you might get tired of it. Can you eat wite potatoes? Sweet potatoes? They both go good with just about anything.

 

The sugar in juices is a problem. It seems manufacturers care more about profits than our health, so they advertise these juices (and other things) as healthy while filling them with sugar because they know most people (especially kids) are addicted to sugar. Creates more sales you know. The solution would be to make your own. I am not a fan of juicing because those juicers take most of the fiber out of the fruit. I think an old fashioned orange juicer and a blender are the best bet. If you want apple juice or pear juice or berry juice you can put these fruits in a blender (the larger fruits cut into small chunks first), then pour off the juice to drink. You can take the "mush" left in the bottom and use it for baking.

Ive been gluten free since about January, I have also struggled with outbursts and frustration at my partner... It's been a difficult adjustment period for both of us. Joining this forum has helped me out a lot as well as some regular stress relieving activities (walking/yoga/breathing deeply when I start to feel the frustration and anger well up). All in all, it does get better a little at a time, three steps forward and one to two steps back every day but that is still progress. My partner and I have laid out a game plan for when i get angry or frustrated over food/eating/shopping, he notices it before i do so he gives me a hug and gently points it out. We talk over the subject of the frustration (rice products and grocery shopping for you :P) and we work through it calmly together over a walk or some other activity that removes me from the situation. We have had to do this less and less often as I have learned what/how to eat and what works. You may want to consider pre-cooking some quick and easy food items so you can quickly toss together a salad or favorite meal ( I do chicken but this is not an option for you, however I'm sure there is something similar you can do with a vegie diet :)). Either way, hang in there, it gets easier and when you start feeling better it is completely worth it.
