I Can't Believe I Did It.

Recommended Posts

I cheated on the gluten-free part of my diet. I guess the temptation started to get to me the other day when my Internist decieded there was no other option but to run a full allergey panel. We know I'm allergic to wheat,corn,mold,grass,and dogs and there are so many other things I react strongly too. My doc is still convinced I have celiac disease as well. At first the thought of the allergey test was no big deal until I thought about the gluten. The only reason we're even doing this is that I've had a sinus infection that I can't get rid of. My doc won't even give me anymore meds until we get the full allergey panel. They aren't asking me to gluten load which I wouldn't but I can't take my allergy meds. I've been gluten-free for about six months now and doing great. I even made it through thanksgiving with out getting sick. I've been staying at my parents house for the last couple of days which is problem #1. I seem to do fine at resisting temptation when I can get back to my house where everything is safe. I've had corn bread and pumkin pie staring me in the face. Screw up one last night was eating icing from the edges of my nephews leftover birthday cake. Then I made it worse. I waited until the boys went to bed and then had a piece of cornbread with butter. and THEN I ate the last peice of pumpkin pie.

So now today I feel achy. Luckly no GI symptoms yet. My legs hurt really bad.

This is why I hate being away from my house for long periods of time. Even if I don't cheat which is most of the time I still get sick! I was already feeling crummy before I cheated because I was having to cook gluten filled food for the boys. This is the first time I have knowingly cheated. I can't wait to get home!

I haven't knowingly cheated yet, but I certainly let my guard down about cc especially when I am already feeling bad. I ate some questionably gluten free cookies that someone made for me when I wasn't feeling well. Of course, then I don't know if the cookies were contaminated or not since I was already feeling bad! I know what you mean about wanting to get home. I went on a cruise recently and didn't feel well pretty much the whole time. As much as I love cruises, I couldn't wait to get home. My stomach was so distended my clothes barely fit (of course it didn't help that I was eating a lot too :rolleyes:). I am certainly the most happy when I am in my own kitchen and in control of what I eat. I wish you luck on figuring out what exactly is causing you to be sick. It's difficult to follow such a stringent diet, but it's even worse when you feel like there still could be something that you are eating that is making you sick. I hope you feel better soon!
