Nothing I Eat Makes Me Feel Good.

Recommended Posts

Guest thatchickali

It's been almost 2 months now. I haven't had a good day and the days are just getting worse.

Before I was eating all the gluten replacers like breads waffles bagels cookies, and those were apparently bad for me so I have moved to fruits, and chicken and rice. That is all I can tolerate. My body wont even work any more. I drink 3 Bolthouse Blue Goodness smoothies a day to try and get enough B vitamins.

I don't know what to eat now. My stomach is way too sensitive for this. I was surviving on my gluten before I was diagnosed, now I'm just fading away trying to eat gluten free. Most of you who have read my other posts know that my room-mates don't support me and have forced me to make a kitchen in my tiny room. All I have is a tiny fridge (with no freezer) and a toaster oven. I know it's ridiculous but it's a situation I can't get out of.

WHAT DO I EAT

Just to make you feel like you are not alone, I also can't eat any of the waffles, bagels or cookies that are gluten free. I'm 3 months post diagnosis and have very limited food options. I eat alot of fruits, veggies and fresh meats.

Is there anyway you could get a place of your own? Or, maybe educate your obviously clueless and heartless roommates so that they understand your diet and needs?

Also, maybe you should keep a food journal. It helped me find other food intolerances. You may be intolerant of other foods as well which is not making you feel better. Did you stop dairy? Soy could be a problem as well.

If you are not feeling better, you should follow up with your doctor. There may be things he could suggest or help you with. Maybe see a dietician as well.

Hang in there,

It's been six months for me, it took a good 5 months to start to feel a little better. Give yourself time. It does get better.

Ok, first, overloading on fruit juice will not help anything. You're causing your insulin levels to jerk round and that's only going to make you feel crappy. Walmart carries a B-vitamin complex that I take (called B-100, not the super-B complex, that has wheat) and I've felt better since I started taking it. It's only six dollars here for 60 pills, so it's definitely way cheaper than the Bolthouse juices. The fruit/chicken/rice diet is a good place to start if you think you have other food sensitivites, but when you say your system can only tolerate certain things, what happens when you eat them? Nausea, heartburn, diarrhea, headaches?

In my house, we have a running joke about Blue Goodness... :P It's a pretty lethal gas producer for us!

When I saw a dietician last week, she said that a good multivitamin should be sufficient enough for my B vitamins (a great relief since the B supplement I had used before going gluten-free was made with wheat).

Personally, I avoid Blue Goodness because it's a fruit overload for me. I like the Berry Boost, Strawberry Banana, Vedge, and C Boost, though. :D They seem safer in regards to "air pollution"!

I do feel ya though... I'm still trying to find a way to feel alive again myself.
