I've been trying so hard to be totally gluten free , alcohol intolerance, lactose free etc basically you name it I can't have it . I do have the occasional g&t which doesn't seem to affect me .only have lactose free milk in cereal and have an occasional muller rice . My basic diet consists of
Gf cornflakes, salad . Meat and veg .
Fruit (apples and pears) throughout the day i.e. Am and pear pm.
Gf biscuits occasional days
Herbal tea & water
My downfall especially on bad days - sweets and chocolate (my everyday day) but of course after I've eaten them - not gf!
I'm like a person possessed and grab the nearest thing to ear .
I'm now having hypnotherapy hopefully to help with some issues which cause me to reach for the seeet stuff, so fingers crossed .
My t3 - from France I've discovered contains gluten !
I still feel so tired especially after hectic days, work, going out etc (I have CFS)
I don't enjoy cooking (stress levels go through the ceiling !!!) so food is kept to basics meat veg/salad etc
I'm especially not to eat bread😱 Bananas , melon as grapes (love them all so much ). I'm a fussy eater too!
Just so depressed with the whole thing.
I thought I would have lost weight having read on here about people taking t3 and how they'd lost weight . My weight fluctuates daily lose 2 put in 2 -
I'm still suffering with exhaustion some days
Brain fog can still kick in - feel ridiculous trying to describe what I'm trying to say to people
Some days my ankles and wrists so swollen . some days my hip and legs are painful too.
Blood tests due in 2 weeks then I see my endo in September .
What am I doing wrong?
I know I need to be totally gf which will mean re sourcing t3 - which is frustrating given my efforts to obtain several boxes from France .
I know I need to stop grabbing that chocolate bar - I've now bought a high quality 90% bar which I'm to have 1 piece at night
My diet so restrictive due to the gf/low gi, etc stuff, me being so blooming fussy and gagging when trying to introduce new foods. Life is not fun. I know that the new diet regime is for health reasons to make me feel better and lower my antibodies. I'm just so incredibly fed up at not feeling the benefits totally . Don't get me wrong I certainly feel better than I did several months ago, last blood tests in May showed my antibodies had got better-
I'm sure I swing between hypo and hyper as everyday different .
I guess I should need someone out there to reassure me that things will get better and it's a slow road to recovery - and of course I need to put the effort in 😳
