Plain & Simple "it Messes Me Up!"

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My DD (13) was hanging with her god brother (23) the other day at the mall & he offered to buy her an auntie anne's pretzel ( her favorite!!) & she declined saying she can't eat wheat. "Why? Does it mess you up?" :blink: Exactly! She then admitted to me she didn't know what to say to ppl who offered her glutenous food. Her god brother provided the answer "It messes me up!" That's her new mantra.

We do not have that phrase legally protected so everybody feel free to use it. :rolleyes:;)

I confess I have used this expression --except it had the F-bomb in it as the verb. :lol:

I know, nice potty mouth, IH. :ph34r:

That is adorable!

And perfect for the occasion!

I spent a year giving people the full Celiac Lecture when they asked me why I couldn't have wheat!

I now know that is not necessary and there are times when a shorter version is needed. I will still give the Celiac Lecture if they ask questions about their symptoms etc, but also...

I shall be using your daughter's phrase.

Because indeed, "It messes me up!"

:lol:

Mostly as a verb.....as in..... "It _____s me up."

Like my pal, EATMEAT4GOOD, I often give the Celiac spiel and when I get to the part about the autoimmune response and someone's eyes start glazing over like a Christmas ham, I head for the punch line.

    • i am thinking you may be LADA, latent autoimmune diabetes of  adult,  type one, of course. Not to hit you when you are down, but now is the time to realize that you eat to live, not live to eat.  find a different source of sensual enjoyment, ie photo, painting, singing, etc.  and "hold your nose" and eat what you need to live well.
    • You might consider the endoscopy.  Like I said, some celiacs (about 10%) have negative blood tests.    The endoscopy can rule out other issues too (like Crohn’s).   Not all celiacs are wasting away either.  I hope they figure it out and you feel better fast!  
    • Yes, I do not take iodine salt as well (forgot to add it), I get bubbles after it... That actually worries me a little because in long run what is my thyroid going to say (I do not eat seafood so there is no source of iodine for me at all)? I tried taking iodine supplement but got bad reaction to it. I am taking DEVA multivitamin supplement now (that's vegan, gluten, dairy etc free) and this seems to cause no reaction (it does contain some iodine, so that's covered now) and the hand seems to heal quicker and better now. It does not prevent bubbles or flare ups from appearing, but the skin does seem to recover quicker (I don't know if it's the strict diet without deviation or the vitamins really). I'm taking it with digestive enzymes (also for vegans, and all-sorts-of-things-free) to make sure the vitamins are digested. I also get some neurological reaction to gluten and the other bunch of allergens - recently I ate chips (the package did not say it contained gluten traces, I found out about it only later) and I felt very weak and unable to stand properly, legs become very shaky (I am 31, not an old lady who you'd expect to feel weak at times). Sometimes I can get severe mood swings also. After taking absorbent medication I felt relief and the next day was normal. I never ever get such weakness bouts when on diet.  Thanks a lot for your comment and encouragement!
    • I was eating wheat and gluten at the time of the test. No test or diagnoses was done while I was in hospital they just Gave me a list of could be’s and nothing was done they just sent me home once the sepsis was gone. I went to my auto immune dr because they thought I had lupus or hypothyroid and he suggested having a colonoscopy to test for chrons and endoscopy to test for celiac after the blood work. Having the colonoscopy Dec 7th. Getting tired of being sick, bloated beyond belief all the time and just flat out drained and sluggish.  Gaining weight for no reason at all to which is strange. I read the blood work as negative as well just wanted to see if I was reading it right and see if I could get more info.
