Gluten Free Sometimes Makes Me Feel Even Worse in Coping with Celiac Disease Posted November 13, 2007 · Report to Admin thank you to all who have posted responses so far! I appreciate all of the input. I guess in some way I am in some denial about how much I need to do/change in my diet and lifestyle. The gluten free products do seem to send my stomach into an absolute mess. I had some gluten free bread with dinner and I am alreday paying for it terribly! So I am going to try what many have mentioned and go to an all natural (no processed gluten free diet) and let things heal up more. I am not sure how to plan a menu with no processed gluten free stuff because I am a picky eater to begin with so if there is any advice on that I would be glad to hear it. (thanks in advavce!) Also. it could be the Crohn's that is acting up but it seemed to have gone into a remission period (which can happen but I and the doctors cannot predict when that starts and stops) so perhaps I am having a flare up. Nut allergies? maybe. That is one I did not consider as I just assumed it was not applicable to me, but with the intense stomach pain and upset that the sesame seeds cause dI suppose it is more than a possibility. So I need to change more drastically, call the doctor, and try to come up with a way to eat all natural non processed gluten free until I figure out what's going on with my stomach or until I feel better and heal. I am disappointed with myself and honestly fed up with all of the things I need to do but that is my own fault. I need just deal with what I need to and get on with things. As for what may stop me from eating gluten free at all times, I will refer to the post with possible reason and I will list reasons for my mistakes below and if anyone has suggestions please feel free to post. It am ready to do whatever I need to do... - gluten-free is not as convenient? - gluten-free food too expensive? - Don't know how to cook tasty gluten-freee foods? - Don't know what to eat? (sometimes I do and sometimes I am not sure) - Don't know how seriously sick you can get from eating gluten? - Don't have the will power? Thanks again to everyone fo rhte insight and suggestions. I was doing much better for a while some time ago. Then when depression and anxiety hit me very hard I slipped up badly and didn't follow the diet as closely and ate gluten at times and now of course my stomach is a mess again. It is also very unpredictable.
