  1. I glutened myself last year with CRUMBS. Teent tiny amounts, totally by accident. Within 3 hours I had diarrhea that lasted over 6 weeks. I thought I was going to die, everything made me sick. I started taking glutamine and within days...
  2. Hi IH!!! xoxoxo back girl!!! Yeah, it has been a crappy long journey, eh? (I can say that, I'm canadian). I expect we will be feeling the effects for a LONG time, but it just reminds me how far I have come. Every day that I am not in...
  3. The anti depressants took a long time to wean off of...And when I start to freak out, I wonder if I made a mistake, but no regrets. Congrats on 29 months. Amazing how long this healing can take!
  4. 2 years gluten-free and everyday I am so thankful that we figured out what was literally killing me. It has not been easy but there are more good days than bad. No more anti depressants. No more weight loss. No more insomnia. Nerve pain...
  5. i agree!!! it is delicious. I added extra ginger, so yummy.
  6. Yikes. I had so many of these: Mysterious bruising on the body (i.e., legs, arms, stomach) Raccoon eyes Sticky, floating pale stools Joint/bone pain (prevents sleeping at night)- this was HORRENDOUS Cold hands and feet (intolerance...

    I Am So Excited!

    I found a local restaurant in Hamilton, Ontario that SAID they were celiac friendly. I emailed to confirm and got the following from the chef: Hello Ada, We offer a celiac friendly menu and would be happy to look after your dietary...
  8. You do not get rid of it. Of course your endoscopy came back clear, you stopped eating the stuff that caused the damage. That is the point, When you eat gluten, it causes your body to attack itself and damages your intestines. When you stop...

    At My Wits End...

    First, huge huge hugs. I can totally relate. Second, two weeks is a DROP in the bucket of time. These things take a long time to heal.Myself, I was diagnosed by a fluke by a neurologist when I had TERRIBLE pain in my nerves. I thought I...

    Gluten Free 3 Months: Hungry!

    I know when I went gluten-free, I was SO hungry for months that if it wasn't nailed down, I ate it. It eventually passed....
  11. I had such depression and anxiety that I was almost suicidal. My Dr have me Cymbalta, that I think helped me amazingly.However, I since learned that gluten can be a neuro toxin, so last December I decided to try tapering off and I am OK...
  12. I didn't get the impression that she had "trouble". Sounded like she may be on the gluten free bandwagon a little bit. I wasn't entirely sure of her problem with it. I didn't go into the details that I thought I was going to die, as did...
  13. I was at a local health food store buying some organic sausages (on sale) as well as a few other things. I was chatting with the cashier about the crap in the food industry. She then tells me that the WORST food in the world is wheat and...
  14. I solely eat Chapmans since they actually label it gluten free...SOrry, can't help with the Loblaws but if you need a quick fix, then CHapman's may be the way to go.
  15. Blood work is rarely wrong. It tends to go the other way, people have negative bloodwork and feel tons better off gluten. A few things to consider. Maybe you caught it early so that the damage is patchy or almost non existant or they didn...
