Just wanted to say a big thank you to the forum.... for being there. Had a great holiday in Canada where my kinfolk all ran out and got 'special' breads and buns. The Hotel I stayed in was great for breakfast although when the waitress was queried 'how do you make your gf toast?', she wasn't aware of toaster cross contamination so *big points* I whipped out my toast bags which they used.
Last week I had my first 'glutened' experience. Not good and felt I lost a few days of my life. Still can't figure out the culprit.
Went to the GP who signed me off for a fortnight with 'menopausal symptoms' and told to find the prescription stuff I can use (I've been spending ££ on flours). He's also sending me back to the dietician and consultant due to ongoing bloating and wind. It continues even though I've eliminated the Codex wheat starch.
But yesterday, after looking at back posts, I took the chance, sorted and washed my 'may contain traces' red lentils and cooked up an Indian feast (my SO actually prefers the wholegrain rice), so I'm eating myself healthy.
I'm practically off caffeine (for iron levels), taking supplements and pribiotics and I'm doing some mindfulness and trying to get the hang of touching my head to my toes (Yoga).
It's been a hard few months since my gastroscopy/diagnosis of coeliac but just like my consultant said,
'You'll get the hang of this', and I am.
