So it finally hit me last night. My husband got home from work and was asking about dinner. I didn't feel like eating. He reheated chicken and I just watched him eat. Then the tears came. I've only cried happy tears over my diagnosis (being happy that I finally had a solution), but this was the first time it really hit me. I have Celiac disease. This isn't something I have to deal with for a few months. This is a lifestyle change that I have to continue, forever. I was upset last night because I was tired of eating the same things (I know I need to experiment with cooking). I went to lunch with a friend and I was frustrated that somehow a non-gluten friendly item ended up on my plate. I'm tired of explaining to restaurants how careful they need to be. I'm tired of going places and having to constantly worry about what I can/can't eat. I fear that when I have kids, we'll have to go places that I won't be able to eat. I worry that the next time a friend invites me over, I'll offend them by asking what they are cooking (happened already). I worry that I will eat something wrong accidentally, but by the time I find out, I just have to deal with the symptoms. I'm am pretty much in constant worry. What if? I know that in the long term, I will feel better. I feel better already. But on a daily basis, this is an internal struggle that I am learning to fight. How do you cope? How do you deal?
If there was such as thing as Celiac Rage-- I've got it today. I am still healing my bowel from diagnosis last year. I thought I was making progress when I had a normal stool this morning. But then I had BM after BM after BM. And each one got progressively worse. Can I not be a human cesspool of Poop all the GD time? I just want one normal BM. I want it to be large in diameter, firm but not dry, and not some stupid pinky sized piece of poo pretending to be a normal poo. I know you're not the normal poo I used to have!!! When will I have normal stool? Frustrated and just angry. Not really at my poo ... just angry in general. Trying not to be negative and I have mostly good days but today is just a nasty day!
CaliSparrow posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)My doctor has recently put me on several therapies such as adrenal support, vitamin support, bioidentical hormones, chelation for mercury and the rotation diet for leaky gut. She practices functional medicine so I assume these are all gentle therapies seeing as how I'm doing them all at once. The first week of the rotation diet was super challenging but seemed to be yielding some positive results (such as cooking some amazingly delicious meals - shocking). It has not been perfect and I started off with a two-day rotation diet to shorten the step. Before long, I was rockin the planning & food prep. For four days, everything went perfectly in the four-day rotation. Apparently, there are withdrawal symptoms from being on this. For the past three days I've hardly eaten much. My appetite is low to non-existent and the diet is quickly going over my head as no food equals lowered cognitive function and high frustration (not so good on the tummy either). I may just focus on eating ANY food on my safe food list until I get back to feeling strong again. This really knocked me off course and I was so encouraged to then feel ill all of a sudden and feeling back at square one. Has anyone done this and what helped you safely navigate this process? It's my birthday so, your replies would be super appreciated today! I can't just keep crying. From what I understand, stress & frustration are to be kept at bay when you have these issues. I really need some support. Cali
