Pain can be sharp or dull

Temple throbbing

aching all over

Skin hurts on bones

Bones grind on joints

Joints swell in waves

Thoughts hurt our minds

Minds create emotions

Emotions hurt our being

Muscles grow weak

Revolt in distress

Tired and useless

Light hurts the eyes

Sounds hurt the ears

Pounding hurts the head

We shrink away from it

We go to darkness and quiet

Our private misery

Meds may dull the pain

therapy might keep it at bay

Counseling is hit or miss

Sleep...if you can catch it

Takes you away

Blissful sleep

When we wake

We build our courage

Straighten our backs

Hold our heads high

We meet a new day

With hopes and dreams

Crying inside

    • Yeah but it does explain my slight reactions I get  randomly from those two foods. Wish there was a very well documented lab study. You know like 10-20 different brands testing 1 batch per week over the period of 12 months recording the gluten content to the PPM and posting it. Also a varied control of doing it twice once with washed once with unwashed.   Would love to see this kind of study done to just lay it out plain in a table of data instead of a huge written article of various opinions on what might be what could be, and OH this is safe for SOME. or IT COULD BE.
    • Always had a slight fear of diabetes myself due to my nerve issues was first thought by doctors to be diabetes. I will tell you something that I did for another reason that slammed that thought. I got a glucose monitor kit for like $14 for everything. And started checking my blood sugar for a few days making record of meals snacks, moods etc. IT did show that on the lower end of healthy and higher end is when my mood changed. BUT they were all well within your normal range of 90-135. Few times after waking up in the morning was a tad lower and after working out, but that depletes your glucose stores, and this ran with my binge eating urges....oddly for nuts and protein, and stevia tea.     But the fact is it showed my blood sugars changes very little in relations to my food, but more to do with my physical activity and stress, along with normal ranges so proved I was not diabetic at all in my mind. Congratulations on finding your regime and issues out so far, hope you nail down your other culprit. Might just take more healing and time an be nothing.
    • Have you taken lactose out of her diet?  Trouble digesting lactose might be a temporary side effect of Celiac Disease.  It is also possible to be lactose intolerant and Celiac.  You might try eliminating it and see if that helps.
    • In my opinion, this  author goes a bit over board with her "gluten is everywhere" agenda.  
    • Yes! They have been ruled out. All my nutrient and hormone levels are good!
