Yesterday morning as I wrote I was predicting that I was not going to feel well. I attempted to go back to sleep with no luck. I managed to drag myself out of bed, shower,and get ready for work. While driving Davis to school I continued to feel worse to no avail. I turned the van around and came home. Within 20 minutes I was thankful I did! I was sicker yesterday than I have ever been...I experienced all the symptoms listed for about 8 hours straight. You could compare it to a terrible stomach virus. My conclusion was...I must be eating gluten.
Around 5pm or so I had a little energy to read and discovered my conclusion was correct. I learned that gluten is in malt, which is in candy bars,which I ate on Wednesday. I know I had other things too, like salad dressing. This is such a learning process. My life will be consumed w/ reading labels for awhile. So when you see people reading labels...
perhaps they have Celiac??
I am feeling better today, not 100%, but MUCH better. I am so glad I went to CR tonight, because I considered not going. It was very uplifting and rejuvenating. Thank you to all of you and your kind words of concern and encouragement!
P.S. For those of you who asked, yes my kids are getting tested next week. That shall be interesting. Just a blood draw...a first for Sophie and Davis vomits at the sight of blood... we shall see :)
