Just Down

Recommended Posts

Last Sunday I was glutened at Outback. I went through some of my normal symptoms but very mild. Then tonight depression started. It seems so wrong to be doing so good and the wham. I can't even say that this was from last week. We had a picnic today at church and I brought my own foods. Then we had a couple visit that lived here 5 years ago and explaind whats been going on the last few months. I think it is just the emotions of the day. But it feels like my glutened depression. I just get tired of being different.

Blessings, I just now prayed for you, sister. I had a tough day at church as well. I've missed a few meetings in recent weeks with back pain and issues with the Celiac. Today I was in a lot of pain, but was able to manage this morning with alternating ibuprophen and tylenol arthritis. I was so emotional though, all morning! I realized how I am isolating myself at home, away from all the bad food. I send my hubby and son out to eat, but I am scared to go myself. I have hurt all week so badly, and when people want to know how I am, I feel like starting with, "how long ya got?" Then I feel like I'm telling them more than they really want to hear. I was discussing a possible place for a future ladies luncheon and it dawned on me that I'd get to sit there, at my favorite place, and watch everyone else enjoy it. It's just really hard, isn't it?

I know what you mean. The same thing happened to me last week after going out to eat my birthday dinner at a supposedly safe restaurant. I didn't get D like in the past so that was the good news. However I got achy and had clogged up sinuses and was very depressed. It finally passed a day and a half later.

I think the thing is is that one needs to really be forward with the restaurant and talk to the manager etc. and go look at where they are preparing the food to really be certain no CC happens. Its a real hassle and sometimes a little embarrassing but it apparently really is needed. Otherwise slip ups happen.

Also its a good idea to take along some heavy duty pro biotics and bromelain/papain caps etc. to counteract possible CC when eating out. It helps. Also slippery elm caps and marshmallow caps help heal inflammation and soothe the intestines.

Hope you are starting to feel better again! Just take it slow and easy since your immune system may have been compromised.

I certainly understand how you are feeling. I am praying for you to feel better. The Outback has been a disappointment to me, as I have been glutened twice and both meals were from the gluten-free menu. I explained very clearly to the waiter and it appeared that my instructions and the need to have the food exactly as it was ordered were understood. I think the ball was dropped by the waiter and did not get as far as the cook. Unfortunately, my business with them has ended, as I cannot risk another bout of vomiting for hours. I just have decided that I'm a better cook and eat at home! The depression will end and it does get better. Good luck to you.

I understand. This whole thing has me very depressed as well. I'm hoping as I get the hang of it, it will be easier and I wont be so sad...or mad depending on the day..

I had an issue with Outback too. That has been the only place that I would go because the had a gluten-free menu. Well I ordered off the gluten-free menu and even talked to the waitress who seemed very good with everything. I got my meal and was eating and I had just said to my SIL who was with me that it was nice to feel safe at a resturant and I looked down at my plate and there was a french fry half way under my chicken. Outbacks fries are not gluten free. So ok, maybe it was just a fluke thing, but if they are supposed to be as careful as they say they are, then one of their gluten filled french fries should not have been on my plate. I was devastaed. Not so safe any more. They did take my plate and bring me a new one, and took it off our bill, but that wasn't really the point. I convinced myself that I would be fine. I didn't touch the fry or anything, so I wasnt' going to get sick. Well, so much for positve thinking. The whole next day was horrible. My stomach was just a mess and I felt like I hadn't slept in a week. I'm just not going to take the chance eating out anymore, its just not worth it. And yeah, that is depressing too.

This disease is a very emotional thing too, not just physical. I so understand the depression and saddness. You are not alone...

Hey guys

Thanks for the prayers and support. I am feeling so much better today. Just resting. I'm tired of doing nothing.

Yesterday I did some running around and bought some dried Plautos. They were so yummy but I spent the afternoon visiting the restroom. Felt like I had a Phosopho Soda. At first I thought it was a reation to a Humira shot but it had to be the dried fruit. I didn't have anything else new.

Always something. I see my counselor tomorrow. We are supposed to talk about an anti depressant. We'll see.

God Bless,

Vicky

Dried fruit is always iffy for me too. Besides just the candida/fungal issues I discovered a lot of it is dusted with gluten to keep it from sticking together...

I question anti depressants when just avoiding these hidden pitfalls works much better--especially since it takes a while to find an anti depressant that actually works for you plus getting used to it.

I am glad to hear that you are feeling better. I am with you on the down side of things, but my problem is that people have been bringing in lots and lots of sweets to work and I want them so bad! I am such a sweet freak, and not being able to enjoy things every day for 2 weeks has gotten me down. But, I know that this too will pass......

Make a gluten-free cheesecake and bring it in. I use Midel Pecan cookies and use the whole bag. I bake the crust while I mix the filling. I use Pamels Baking mix instead of flour and I use the regular Better Homes and Garden recipie. It will satisfy all your sweet needs. I have also used Pamelas simple bite chocolate cookies. I had to special order them. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

God Bless,
