Wheat free home stretch
So, I am in the early 6th month of being wheat-free.

I really miss doughnuts.

So far, I have not been miraculously cured of my CFIDS/ME. But my FMS is much, much better than it was when eating wheat. I'm also much more tolerant of cold. R noted when I was at home that I seemed more clear-headed in the mornings, more awake.

At the end of this month, I plan to have a few doughnuts and see what happens. Will my joint pain return? If I notice ill effects from the wheat, I will go back off of it for good.

I am also going to talk to an immunologist about the possibility of celiac disease, and maybe get scoped. I also want to get tested for reactivity to WGA and a few other things. I want to know what is going on.

The last couple of weeks, I have noticed that I am feeling less tired. Is it just the time off? I mean, I've been out of school for more than a month now, and I have mostly been relaxing. Or is it that this is how long it takes to recover from Celiac-induced illness? It turns out I have a lot of Celiac symptoms I didn't know were symptoms. Nutritional deficiencies, peripheral neuropathy, geographic tongue.

Interesting. Oh, alsp, gf donuts exist!

Yeah, they do, but most of them suck! I am going to have to make them myself. There are some recipes out there, I just hate frying anything because the cleanup is such a pain in the ass.

And also, how have you been? It's nice to see your username.

And thanks! I have been busy packing and driving and recovering, and Christmas happened, but I need to get back to LJ again.
Sorry for all the typos.
