Just Looking For A Little Sympathy!

I have my Endoscopy booked for Monday afternoon, and this weekend concludes a very difficult period of wheat and gluten consumption. I am feeling absolutely TOXIC right now. Ugh. I've been over indulging in bread, cakes, cookies, ice cream....all the stuff I should never eat. I feel bloated, nauseous, sick and poisoned. This is nasty. Can't wait for Monday. I plan on doing a detox immediately after the Endoscopy...just fruits and vegetables for a few days and then slowly reintroduce lean meats and pulses. I can't believe how awful this food makes me feel. I just got my very positive Enterolab results so I'm feeling pretty upbeat and positive. I know what's wrong and I know how to fix it. Just got to get through 3 more days!

I have broken down a few times last week and ate gluten. I had funnel cake and some of my boyfriend's cheese bread sticks. I was just so hungry and there wasn't much for me to eat around here. I felt so sick afterwards. I was constipated and all bloated. I am currently unemployed and living on food stamps. It is very hard to keep stocked up on gluten free foods. I buy a lot of beans and rice, but I sometimes get tired of eating it. You can only east that so many days in a row before wanting some "real" food. I wish the prices on gluten free food would go down to that of "regular food." It would make it a lot easier.

I sympathize. It is really expensive. I go to Whole Foods sometimes (commonly known as Whole Paycheck) and am amazed when I get to the checkout! Do you try to bake thing from gluten free flour? I make some amazing gluten free orange cranberry muffins. It really helps break the monotony. In fact I think i should post the recipe in the recipe section!

I make my own pancakes and brownies. Sometimes I make cornbread and banana bread. The only premixed flour I buy is The Gluten Free Pantry Sandwich Bread mix. And that is cause I can't make a successful bread LOL

Good luck with the endoscopy. It sounds like regardless of the actual results, you know you have a gluten intolerance. It will be nice for you to be gluten free again.

I just got my test kit from enterolab and I am going to send in my sample. I am quite convinced that I have a gluten intolerance despite the fact that all my actual celiac testing has come back negative. I have been gluten free for 2 weeks and I am SOOOOOOO tired.

Thanks no-more-muffins! (great name btw!) Good luck with the enterolab test. I am sure you will be very glad you did it, as I was.

OK, so today is the last day of my gluten challenge and I am SICK! I feel so ill right now. I have had to keep talking to myself and telling myself just 2 more days, just 1 more day.... I cannot believe how ill this has made me. I feel poisoned. My belly hurts, I have terrible gas, diarrhoea AND constipation both together! The joint in my left foot is very painful and the gluten has made my Endometriosis very bad and I have severe pain in my hips and pelvis. I am nauseated and bloated. I have terrible heartburn. I just sat and ate my very last bagel...EVER! It feels very weird to write that, knowing I will never have another one. It sure tasted good but I can feel what it is doing to me and so it won't be hard to give them up.

Tomorrow is my endoscopy, but regardless of what it shows, I will be going gluten free for good as of midnight tonight. I will start with a 3 day fruit and vegetable cleanse, in order to clean and heal myself. I know I have caused some damage with this gluten challenge and it will take some weeks to get better, but psychologically I am glad I did it. I think I needed to show myself how sick I can get eating this junk. So today I shall spend time cleaning out the fridge and prepare to change my life forever. Clean fridge, clean body. LOL. Thanks for listening.

I am glad this is going to be over soon for you. You can make that bagel the last gluten item you ever eat since your endo is tommorrow. I do wish they would adopt the less barbaric mucosal challenge in this country. I hope you start to feel better soon.
