All Systems Stopped



Ugh, I haven't gone bathroom in 3 days and I'm starting to get rather uncomfortable. LOL I wish it would get going again. I'm starting to get quite a distended belly, and it's gross to think about why. :rolleyes: That's TMI isn't it?

I just realized that I hadn't checked my fibre supplements to see if they are gluten-free, and one isn't. :( I haven't really been gluten-free these past... 10 days or so. Just really gluten-lite. Oops. Oh well, I'll get there. It took 38 years to get here so I shouldn't expect to completely stop in one day.

I did go through my cupboards and clean out my gluten food. The food bank will get a windfall in soups and packaged sauces like alfredo and gravy. I haven't done my fridge completely but its almost done, then i need to go through the freezer... I need to find someone to give this stuff to. I'm hoping to have the house gluten-free by mid August, and then the kids will switch over.

I just found out today that ridged and flaky fingernails are another celiac symptom. Huh, I've always had that. I rarely paint my nails because it causes my nails to flake off even more. I think it's B vitamin related; I think there could be a biotin link too. i need to find a good biotin vitamin.... I need a nutritionist/dietician!
