I totally missed my post last week due to being in New Orleans for the SERA conference. It was a requirement for my doctorate. While there I eat several things not on my gluten free diet and I'm paying for it!
I started with a mini meat pie on the way and only got worse from there including two trips to Cafe Du Monde for beignets. I was stupid and I didn't think it would hurt me too much since I went wheat free for Ravebaby and not personal health reasons. I was so wrong.
After four years wheat free, I started paying for the bites almost instantly. So much gas and a headache. Since arriving at home I feel like I've been fighting the flu. Body aches and fatigue and a thirst I can't seem to drink enough water to quench. I was already scheduled for my annual checkup for tomorrow and I think DH would have demanded a doctor visit anyway since I'm totally not myself at this point.
I don't remember struggling like this for years ago. I think it is because before I had a baseline of normal that might included all of this achynessand fatigue but I don't remember. My new normal was painfree and usually with plenty of energy so maybe that is why this seems so bad. I don't like it. No way I'm going back to wheat. Anyone else ever try to go back to wheat only to discover it hurts?
