Glutton for Gluten-Punishment

on July 31, 2012

When I first went gluten-free I made a joke about not eating chocolate cake in front of me. Well, in the last week, chocolate cake has been under my nose twice and I couldn’t help myself. My three-year-old didn’t want the rest of her cake and I couldn’t let it go to waste. What kind of example would that be? At the same birthday party I also ate a mini turkey sandwich. It wasn’t my fault. There was a little umbrella stuck in each sandwich. They were too cute to resist! I arrived at the party looking six months pregnant and I left looking ready to pop. I should mention that I’m not pregnant, I just can’t get rid of this tummy! I’m not sure if the pain I felt afterwards was from eating the gluten or from driving the 20 minutes to the party and following my three-year-old around a splash-park that she refused to get splashed by. I’m still having bouts of pain even when I don’t have any gluten.

I finally finished preparing my appeal to the disability company, with my hubby’s help. I’ll let you know how that turns out.

I know that walking is supposed to be the most gentle exercise but I hurt so freaking bad after a two-block walk to the library. I didn’t know if I’d make it home I hurt so bad. Now I’m so exhausted that I feel like I’m going to fall asleep. Typing this, there is not a muscle in my legs or arms that isn’t aching.

I was recently given the advice to not think about the pain. Yeah. How am I supposed to do that exactly?

    I know exactly what you mean about gentle walking being agony. After 10 minutes I’m in agony, and have to rest for half an hour before I can move again.

    Isn’t it strange how some foods just jump into our mouths like that, lol?!

      It was the most delicious thing ever. I’m told Betty Crocker makes cake mixes that are gluten-free and I love their gluten-free bisquick but I haven’t tried them yet.

    I have the same problem with gluten. I’m still having Celiac/a gluten intolerance ruled out, but I never noticed being in pain after eating a pretzel or a cookie until right before I was diagnosed with fibro last March. I’m all about the gluten-free, but sometimes I just want real people bread…

      Sometimes a chocolate chip cookie (Seriously, my Mom was baking fresh cookies!) or a piece of chocolate cake come my way and I can’t help myself, but I always pay later.

    I’m gluten intolerant for over 2 years now. My symptoms hit 3 hours after eating gluten. Even with the tiniest little bit of gluten, I’m sick as a dog for 3 days and can’t get out of bed. Needless to say, I have no problem staying gluten free as it just isn’t worth feeling that miserable. I do miss being able to order pizza though! Especially when my husband orders one and I can’t have any…

Keep it positive...
