Since going GF, I now realize how sensitive I am to gluten. Whenever I accidentally have something with gluten in it like I did last night I have stomach upset and painful bloating. After waking up this morning with stomach upset all night and after relieving myself this morning, something told me to check the cottage cheese I had last night with dinner. Whey is one of the ingredients.
I never even checked it because it was an item I used to eat all of the time. I sure wish I had.
Does anyone else get bummed, frustrated, scared or even downright upset when you have something with gluten in it and get an adverse reaction?
I am always extremely hungry shortly after having the poison, as I am starting to view gluten as. I am starting to understand it is like being malnourished because the food you thought was giving you good nutrition cannot be properly absorbed into the body, hence making at least me, ravenous!
Can anyone else relate?
To despair is to turn your back on God.
