But I love Bread....

We all struggle with little pains, little uncomfortable things happening to our bodies as we age and as we grow (up).  I am not different then most.  I just suffer through it silently.  Thinking it's just part of life and part of how I am.  But here lately some of those symptoms seemed to be increasing in frequency and comfortableness.....
So I had a health screen done and it seems (they seem to think) that all of my issues stem from one particular thing and that is something that I eat.  They think that I have non-celiac gluten I am not to have gluten (starting immediately) for seven days to see if my symptoms disappear and if they do, they want me to see a nutritionist and if they don't they want me to do the same.  Apparently it's pretty common and most people don't even know it.

Some of the symptoms are:

  • depression
  • ADHD like behavior
  • abdominal pain
  • bloating
  • diarrhea
  • constipation
  • head aches and migraines
  • bone and or joint pain
  • chronic fatigue
  • brain fog
I have every, single symptom.  Uggggg.  Last night I didn't have any gluten and I already freaking slept better and felt better after my meal.  I'll miss you gluten, and hopefully you are the issue - because the other stuff listed it could be seems even more horrible.  I'd rather have a sensitivity to it then have Celiac Disease or an allergy to offence to those that have it.  I applaud your diet changes.

Okay, well here goes nothing.
