I have not posted for a while due to accidentally ingesting gluten about 2 1/2 weeks ago. I ate something that wasn’t baked in a gluten free facility and boy am I paying for it. I had no idea how frustrating this was going to be. It has been 2 1/2 weeks and I am still sick. I thought this would last only 3-5 days, but my GI doc said that this is fairly typical and I am lucky I have such a sensitive immune system. (She said some people unknowingly get contaminated and suffer intestinal damage but don’t realize it.) Yeah, lucky I might be. . . I guess, but it sure doesn’t feel like it to me right now. Missed work, lots of pain and other fun issues, no eating out, on a mostly liquid diet, etc. I have a whole new level of respect for celiacs. I am new to this game and it is kicking my butt right now. I have lots to blog about, I just have not felt up to it recently. I can’t wait to start feeling better and sharing the more positive sides to going gluten free! Just hang in there; I’ll be back soon!
