Okay, for the past 2 months or so we have been on a completely wheat and soy free diet. Dairy has been the occasional spoon of sour cream mixed into a dish right before serving. Before this I didn't really do anything about my wheat sensitivity and dairy allergy because A. I'm lazy and B. I was never really inconvenienced enough to make an effort.
Well, I have lost about 3 inches from my abdominal area just from the loss of bloating and gas. My joints are not nearly as swollen and several chronic aches have gone away. I have seen the light!
If this was all, I would have nothing to post in this thread, right? Last night I allowed myself to be talked into pizza with the promise that there would be a gluten free/cheese free pizza for me. Oh, how I lied to myself, for I am weak! I managed to talk myself into eating cheesy garlic bread and two slices of regular pizza and then we sat there and chatted for a while. Suddenly I felt a tremendous pain in my stomach and pressure. Before I could get out of the booth completely I let out a silent but deadly cloud of toxic gas. I got out as soon as possible but I know it was more than unpleasant for the people around us.
This continued ALL. NIGHT. LONG. it is still going on. I am bloated, my joints are swollen, my sinuses are swollen and partially clogged and I have had a couple of truly disgusting bathroom visits. I have learned my lesson. This is horrible. I did not go to work today because of this and our bathroom and bedroom smell horrible. The windows are open and it is 30 F here if that tells you how bad it is. Never again.
