I was standing at my brother's wedding. Everyone was drinking beer around me and eating this enormous cake and I said, no, I can't eat that....it's finally sunk in, no gluten for me, not even in my dreams! Do you dream about not eating food that's made with gluten? :huh:

Sometimes I dream I eat food and then realize that I can't have gluten and try to spit it up.

I have those same types of dreams because the rest of my house isnt gluten-free and i am always worried that i will eat their leftovers without even thinking about it. So that fear translates into my dreams. I guess it means that this is really burned into our brains.

I've had both dreams where everyone around me is eating foods I can't and I'm just standing there watching; and I've had the dreams where I'm eating "forbidden" foods again and I'm so happy. Either way I wake up depressed about the whole thing.

Man, how I love this forum!!!! :D I've had dreams ever since I had to go gluten-free where I forget that I have celiac disease and start eating a forbidden food. Usually it's pizza or a brownie or something else really really good that I used to love. Then I wake up a little scared like maybe that could really happen. :o But I've found that the dreams have diminished some since I began eating gluten-free cookies and making pizza with gluten-free mixes. I think they were more common when my husband would get the munchies and go get something that I used to eat quite a bit and would still love to eat if I could. Like anything breaded and deep fried :lol:

I dreamed about three nights ago I was guzzling a beer - I haven't had one in like three years... I always realize too late in my dreams. My husband says it's too bad I can't even enjoy myself in my dreams!

Wow! It is sooooo funny to hear that we are not the only people dreaming about our food choices since we have gone gluten-free. I don't dream about it frequently but about a month ago I did dream that I was about to order a pizza or bagel and realized at that very second that I was about to commit a terrible gluten-free error. Soon afterwards I awoke with a sigh of relief that I had escaped my own dilemma.

Its amazing to hear that it is a common occurence among other gluten-free people.

definitely had my second gluten-free anxiety dream last night...

in the first one, several nights ago, i was in a cafeteria, all my friends were already seated and chowing down, and i was scanning and re-scanning the menu trying desperately to find something i could eat. but everything was breaded! and my mom (who i'd thought could help me) was nowhere to be found. :(

last night i dreamed we were on vacation and someone had brought a bag of donut holes -- which were actually tiny puffed delightful cinnamony pastries in the shape of animal crackers! i ate one cautiously and then stuffed 4 more into my mouth. then, it hit me. CHECK THE INGREDIENTS!!! oat flour was the second one! i spit them out into my hand and cried, "i can't eat these! it is so hard to be me!!" my mom sipped her coffee and said spitefully, "i hope so."

what the crap?! apparently i have some anxiety about my mom as well as eating gluten-free. ;) which is weird, bc she's been my biggest support -- from 500 miles away!

weirdness.

Hubbie had his first 'gluten' dream the other night.

Apparently he was eating a cheese and tomato sandwich-and thoroughly enjoying it too,-but before he'd finished he suddenly remembered and was filled with panic.

'my wife will go mad' was his next thought!!LOL.

I don't remember my dreams very well, but I know I've dreamt about the whole gluten-free thing. I vaguely remember a dream where I was shopping and reading all the labels and it was taking forever and they were turning the lights out in the store on me.

What I *really* want to dream about is eating a Big Mac, and it tastes sooooo good!

Then again, I shouldn't complain because I had a dream 2 nights ago that I was kissing Miikka Kiprusoff and he had such silky hair and soft lips.......... B) I think my crush is going to wear off, though, if his GAA doesn't start improving! :lol:

Me too!!! I love Big-Mac's and miss them very much. :(

My dreams are the kind where I forget all about my troubles and eat just like everyone else does and then....as I'm digging into my spaghetti I suddenly remember everything. I'm completely panicked and crying thinking that I've ruined everything and I'm going to get sick all over again.

When I wake up I'm really happy that I'm still gluten-free. :)

I have only had one "gluten dream." I was at a restaurant and I was eating chips and dip. The dip was REALLY good! I asked the waiter what it was, and he said that he forgot the name, but it was made of wheat! :o Then, I ran to the bathroom and started throwing up!

I hope that never really happens!!!! :P

I've had several gluten dreams now. I had one where I was eating something gluteny, and Carrie (Carriefaith) appeared, dressed like Wonder-Woman, and snatched it away.

I had a horrible dream last night. People were holding me down and stuffing gluten bread and cakes in my mouth. I was begging them not to and crying. I then had to spend time in the bathroom and in pain. I think it is because I am not looking forward to going back on gluten prior to the dermatologist.

I have discovered another thing since being gluten-free, I have not had the uncontrollable cravings for sweet things like I did before. Has anyone else found that?

I had gluten-free dreams soon after my diagnosis. My dreams went something like this, I am about to eat a food with gluten in it and at the very last moment...stop and ask myself what am I about to do. My husband had similar dreams too. I haven't had one in over a year now.

I want to commend you on your great courage and persistance in seeing yourself through your multiple health challenges.

I have been having VERY strange dreams lately!! I had a dream last night that I ate a BLT on White toast. It was my 9yr old son who pointed out to me that I was eating BREAD! (I have great kids that know what I can't eat!) So... I asked for something different. In my dream, I didn't get sick! I must have been wishing that it would have been true! BLTs are my son's favorite sandwich!!!

It is a great thing when people get on board with you and watch out for you. My friends had a party on the weekend and as we all brought something for the pot luck, they told everyone they had to tell me what was in each item and not to cross contaminate. Even my mother who is such a nay sayer has got on board with this and said she wants me to make the dressing and gravy for Yule this year. She doesn't want to contaminate me.

Thanks Tammy, I feel we all have great courage to have spent years going through this and other affiliated problems, yet still hanging on even when we meet with adversity.

    • You might have to try cooking ALL fruits & veggies to death to make it super easy for your gut to handle them without putting undue stress on your body. Another thought is ditch every single processed food. Eat everything fresh that you cook yourself. No frozen foods, no canned foods. You can do dried beans but be sure to sort & wash them carefully first.  6 months in is early for many people. It sounds like you're one of those people. Saying that you definitely feel better than when you started is a good thing. You know it's working. It just isn't working as fast as you hoped/wanted. Take heart that you are feeling better and try to be patient. I know it's hard. You want to GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO & get on with your life. You feel like you're sitting at the starting line with your engine revving & you just want to race ahead but you can't get off the starting line, as if someone put a chain around your rear axle.  Be kind to yourself, be patient with yourself. 
    • There is a HUGE difference between grass and grain fed meats. The grass fed longhorn that I use when I Cook for others is 100% different then any other grain fed beef I have gotten in the store. THe stuff is SOO lean you have to ADD oil to the hamburger sometimes because it is so lean there is no oil to fry it up in. The meat is leaner then turkey. The omegas content is different in it also. I love cooking with it because it rarely needs any seasoning and anything I do apply seems to just explode in flavor with it. NOW I can not really eat it, but as a chef what we do is set a bit aside in a tasting dish and go do a chew and spit it out test. Not something to be done with a allergen or gluten but with stuff I do not digest like rice, beans, meats it is a means for me to know if seasoned and cooked right. >.< Note I lack the digestive abilities to break down actual meats, even with enzymes they just sorta float til I puke them up or they come out undigested out the back in the case with fish and crab. I have not tried meat since March....side thought my doctor had told me when my UC damage heals up I might be able to eat meat again....might try some fish tomorrow.

      I do have some other thoughts, you say B12...what about the other B-vitamins? How much magnesium are you taking? Magnesium is a relaxent when your getting enough your feel relaxed, you have very vivid dreams and sleep like a rock. This is why many people take it right before bed.

      I have always praised and sworn by Liquid Health Stress & Energy and Liquid Health Neurological Support for B-vitmains due to the nature of how they work with the body I take 1tbsp each 3 times a day before each meal to keep optimal levels and prevent that wane feeling. I also use KAL nutritional yeast in my meals often (look up the nutritional label on these)
    • Hey everyone,  I am new to this and relatively new to figuring out I was gluten intolerant.  I had lost about 20 pounds over the course of 2 months and had a colonoscopy and scheduled endoscope to see what was going on.  I was getting massive stomach cramps whenever I ate bread, explosive diarrhea when I had anything with lactose, and was in a state of continual brain fog and anxiety.  The medication the doctors gave me, including PPIs didn't seem to help.  I literally thought I was dying of stomach cancer.  A week before my upper endoscope I started a gluten free diet and saw a massive reduction in my symptoms.  My brain fog and anxiety went away almost immediately, so did my heartburn, I got this whenever I ate bread, and I didn't have the massive cramping feeling in my stomach, I gained back about 7 pounds, and my diarrhea began to go away.  I had a blood test for celiac but was negative for it, the doctor told me the best way to tell was to continue to eat gluten and get my endoscope and have a biopsy done.  Since I felt so good I decided not to get the endoscope, since the GI surgeon said I was either one of two things: celiac or had non-celiac gluten sensitivity.  He said the treatment is the same for both; no gluten.   The questions I have is I am still having some issues, it seems like if I eat anything with corn or soy I get diarrhea.  I also still have a nagging discomfort under my left ribs.  I have been gluten-free for about 2 weeks and that is what I am still experiencing. I have read that I may need to cut out soy, sunflower oil, safflower oil, and corn as well as the lactose and gluten to really start seeing good results.  Has anyone else experienced this stuff before?  Do you guys think I should have gotten the upper endoscope?  Thank you so much for your input. When I was researching on what I could possibly have wrong with me, it was this site that made me try to go gluten free and it saved my health.  I know most doctors don't recognized NCGI so I don't know how long I would have suffered though this, as no doctors I worked with suggested going off gluten. Thank you for your responses and God Bless! Josh  
    • Thanks for all the input guys. Yeah I've had the vit/min panels and all that done and it was all normal. Regardless I've been supplementing with 1,000mcg sublingual B12 daily, 5,000iu sublingual D3 every few days, and since going keto, "ketovitals" which gives me some magnesium, potassium, sodium, and calcium. Also douse everything in pink sea salt and drink a ton of water. For months now I've tended to get at LEAST 10 hours of sleep per night... Usually. I still at times have terrible insomnia, which is what happened the other night, then had to get up early. Got a total of maybe 5 hours and still feeling it now 2 days later despite sleeping closer to 14 hours a night since. So Ennis, you mentioned about lectins, which I'm now reading about, and interestingly, certain things I don't do well with (usually uncooked veggies, aside from onions) seem to correspond to this. I even do fine with peas, but, I cook those. I'll have to start experimenting. The only part that gets me is that I'm reading grain-fed meats are high in lectins. I've read before that the supposed grain/grass fed difference is BS, and in fact the one thing that has never let me down through all of this is chicken, and I just buy the regular stuff for that. Can anyone confirm or debunk?
    • At 6. Months I was still recuperating for sure. Still had the dh but less of it, still had chronic pain in my abdomen but less of it, still constipated. I was in the stage of eating gluten-free processed foods, which was too much gluten for me, and keeping my symptoms active. In all actuality my C stopped a few months ago. I've been gluten-free for almost 10 years now.
