Cannot Cope Anymore, Physically Or Mentally.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

6 months of feeling ill, every single day. Nausea, tiredness, swollen throat, stomach pain, generally feeling rubbish. Missing loads of school and exams..

It's starting to effect me a lot now, I just feel like there's is no point in life anymore..just getting up to feel ill.

After 4 months gluten free still have a TTG level of 229 (normal is under 10)

No hope left anymore, starting to get depressed, and scared..I have massive emetophobia so feeling nauseous 24/7 is not a good thing at all!

Went to A&E, hospital said they couldnt do anything so got sent home..

Just really cannot cope.

You haven't mentioned much about your lifestyle.. like what do you usually eat, what precautions have you taken to make sure you're completely gluten-free.

The way you're feeling now is directly related to your health situation, believe me! Depression and feelings of hopelessness are caused by whatever is making you feel ill. We'll need more details to be able to find out what is making you feel ill though :-)

I usually eat toast on a morning, with butter from my own butter, no cross contamination there, and with my own toaster. Gluten free bread obviously. Then usually at school, a sandwhich, yet again with gluten-free bread and my own butter and usually cheese or chicken. Then for tea..meat and vegetables, keeping it simple.

How about giving up any type of bread-like product for a weekend and see how you feel? For breakfast, you could have eggs or fruit with yogurt.

Sounds like some hidden cross-contamination somewhere. Maybe toothpaste, mouthwash, or lip balm/lipstick products are not 100% gluten-free?

I meant, are they OK with the gluten-free thing? Do they keep any gluten in one place, away from your foods? Use separate colanders for your gluten-free pasta or fruit? No one in the house thinks its stupid and puts flour in your food? Have they checked any medications you take for gluten? No oats?

I'm trying to think of the things that have happened to others.

I have oats cut out totally, I have seperate pans and my own cutlery etc. And no, they all realise the seriousness so I dont think someone doing it on purpose would be the case

I am so sorry you are going through that. My daughter is 13 and has similar issues, and like you, major phobia of vomiting, which unfortunately, she does a lot. I would reccomend an elimination diet for now. Stick with very bland things- rice, chicken, fruit and veggies. Avoid dairy 100%. This can allow your gut to heal, and then you can try adding back one thing at a time. I promise you, this can get better!

As for the nausea, get some Braggs apple cider vinegar. Put a teaspoon in a glass of water and drink when your stomach hurts. It gives almost instant relief and really helps when my daughter is throwing up.

I know it is hard not to be discouraged, but it really will get better. Hang in there!
