last night I had this amazing dinner at a friend’s house. these 2 beautiful people made gluten free pasta for me! however….it was ckn parm and the ckn was of course battered…. i refused to be an asshole and ate it. it was delicious. and yummy. this gluten free navigation is very tricky. especially when you have dinner with people who care enough to cook you separate pasta!!!
so, about 30m later I had cramps on one side, and swelling on one side of my abdomen. also, my glands got swollen like they were before. my tummy is not as swollen as it had become months ago, but it’s not ok. little distressed but I realize it’s just going to have to get out of my system. have been drinking tons of water, had peppermint tea with ginger and cinnamon added, etc….
i read something about taking enzymes of some kind to help. i already take some for milk digestion which work wonders but not sure about ones that help with this. I have some Women’s Rainbow Light vitamins that have digestive enzymes and probiotics, etc in them. Took one of those about an hour ago. Will see if that helps?!!
although I don’t have the $$ to get tested for gluten intolerance I am 100 percent sure that whatever the hell is wrong with me that anything with gluten is a big FKING no-no. just being off it for this many weeks and then seeing what such a small amount of it did to me within a short period of time was pretty scary.
i have had headaches all day. i had low acid coffee and tons of coconut milk, finally late in the day ate a gluten free blueberry waffle, later had 1/2 a gluten free sammich and was so crabby and hungry i had spanish rice with some homeade corn tortilla chips. okay. so this all tasted good, but the corn products aren’t doing me any favors.
im going to chalk the past 2 days up as wonderful days in every other sense and on the digestive side alone, disasters.
ever feel really frustrated with yourself, but too exhausted to care? just have to stay away from this stuff at all costs, and will have to learn how to communicate better with friends on what I can eat, and that I am sorry and not trying to be a jerkface. It’s really similar to the vegan dilemma, too, where most of the time you get told to just “bring your own stuff”.
happy tummy, i will find you!
