hang in there. i understand the frustration. occasionally i do go off plan, and i regret it. i remind myself how nice it is to be (relatively) pain-free. i work to keep good things that i CAN eat in my home. honestly the worst is restaurants or other people's homes.
hope you found something to get you thru that time of weakness.

i am blown away...there's NICKEL in foods????? huh???

I didn't see a difference in my symptoms for the first 4 weeks. It took me at least 8 weeks to start feeling better. And that was ok because my insides needed to heal. And they did. I stayed 100% gf for 4 months and then slowly added it back in, but not to the extent that I had it before.
Give your body the time it needs to repair itself. emoticon

Never give up, 'cause things can turn around and the sun can come up at any moment.

Hugs. Be well, do what is best for you no matter how hard it sometimes seems.

You can do it... I have faith in you. It is hard in the beginning but it gets easier. I try to find other items to eat instead of the old foods. I love rice cakes! Do you have a hobby? I use my knitting to help me stay focused. Not only does it keep my mind and hands busy but I get something out of it. Good luck. Keep at it- you're worth it.

Yeah, been there- especially recently when I found out not only can I not have milk, eggs, peanuts, corn, caffeine or gluten, but that I've been breaking out for awhile due to food with nickel in them- and that's a lot of food. Learning what ones are lower in nickel on top of the other allergens was/is a tad overwhelming! Not much info online for this! I said all that just to say that I can definitely relate- I've felt like saying forget it- but then I remember just how awful I felt at the peak of it all- and that it could get like that again, or worse! I figure it might be doing much worse things to my body all in all too. I'd rather be healthy. I like feeling more healthy!
Have you thought about journaling? You could write how you feel and then write to yourself as if you were writing to a best friend who is going through the negative stuff you just wrote.
I see you have scripture in your signature. You could write to God about it- hey, it works- prayer in writing- it helps you focus more on Him and not distractions around you. It's very cool to go back and read what you wrote too. You can see the changes in you through the writings. Looking up scriptures about strength- even one a day, and writing to Him about them, is great.
You CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens you.

It does take time and it will be hard but then you got to remember that you will feel better in the long run. Just remember that your body will fight you and you can fight it by drinking water to see if that is what the body really wants too. Plus the antibiotics will make you more hungry too. That is one thing that doctors don't know or won't tell you. That is why the farmers give it to animals is to make them eat more and then they feed them grains and that also makes them gain weight faster so that they can get more money for the animals.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Have you ever been to the point you want to give up? You try and struggle to be free of whatever you are to avoid and still no relief.

I am about to binge on everything I to avoid. I figure what the hey I am already in pain why not. I know I will feel worse and it will take weeks to reverse the damage.

I have been doing my best to stay wheat and dairy free. I started feeling better, but nothing permanent. I want a results. I am suppose take this antibiotic, but I am stand-offish because if the antibiotic works it is a temporary fix.

How do you fight the urge?

I feel lost.
