Scared And Need Support Please

Recommended Posts

Betty,

I completely understand how you feel. But, PLEASE DON'T CHEAT !!! You'll be giving up what you've accomplished.

I've been on this diet for 8 months now, but I cheated last Sunday and I am still regretting it. Now I have "D", horrible GAS and Bloating. Never again.

Have you considered limiting your ready made foods for awhile and seeing if that helps ? I've read a lot of posts here about contamination even though the label says gluten free.

I am on a very restrictive diet at this point too. No meats, dairy, soy, etc., so I understand how frustrating it is not to be able to eat what you want. But, it is worth it not to be in pain.

Hang in there ... Marcia

Bless your heart. I think we all know how you feel. My son had D last week again and I've been racking my brain to figure out why. I was taking out the recylcing and realized I had gotten the wrong box of Vann's Waffles and had fed them to him. They weren't gluten free. AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! :angry: I was so angry with myself. I've been doing this for about 6 mos. and I make stupid mistakes all the time. Is it possible you got glutened accidentaly? Not that your mistakes would be stupid, that's just how I feel. :P

Also - go ahead and have that pizza, just make sure it's gluten-free!! I made one for lunch today on Chebe crusts and it was WONDERFUL. My MIL was here a couple weeks ago and I made it and she kept saying she couldn't believe how delish it was. Give it a try! I order them off of glutenfreemall.com

Hi Betty,

I'm new to this too, and I just wanted to second the suggestions to look for problems with other foods. Not only do I get bad pains from wheat & gluten, but I discovered that egg is a real problem food for me. It causes pains very similar to wheat/gluten. For me, all the food sensitivities seemed to kick in at the same time.

Have you tried doing an elimination diet to see what other foods might be bothering you? I did my own elimination diet to see what was causing me the problems. I cut back to just meats, fish, potatoes, rice, and fruits and vegetables. After doing that, I felt so much better. THen I started adding back in one new food at a time, eating it twice (if no problems the first time), and waiting at least 2 days to see if there were problems before trying a new food. (I'm sure there are directions online somewhere for how to do an elimination diet properly.) I eat lots of fruit smoothies that I make from frozen fruits and rice milk, and they seem to be very soothing.

Good luck to you. Hope you find the source of the problem and begin healing soon.

girl, you are not the only one who cries over this. I cry way too often, usually after being "glutened" at a gluten free restaurant. Go figure.

I don't have a whole lot of advice, just to let you know that we really are all in this big Celiac boat together. Complete with lots of bathrooms. :) I'll be thinking of you!
