Make It Stop!

Entry posted by ohsotired · - 234 views

Six days back into a glutenous diet, and last night I wanted to die. With a capital D.
I ate a ceasar salad for dinner that had chicken, feta and parmesan cheese, portabella mushrooms and croutons. I also had a couple slices of foccacia bread with asiago cheese on it. Within 30 minutes of finishing dinner, I had a stomach ache. Within an hour, it felt like there was a knife twisting around inside my stomach. By 11pm, it was lower abdominal pain and it was BAD. I felt nauseous, was freezing cold (body temp was slightly above normal), had a headache and back ache, and I wanted to crawl into a hole and die.

This morning, I woke up feeling like I hadn't eaten in a week.

I just want it to stop.

Dr's appt is tomorrow. Pray he listens and takes me seriously.

Hi Caroline! Thanks for your comment!
Wow, since you were two? How old are you now? That's crazy scary about the croutons sending you to the hospital - and that quickly too!
I'll shoot you an email so we can chat a bit!
