Day 5 - I'm still here....

I think it hit me last night the reality of being gluten free is that I will never have some of my favorite foods again. Ever. Hmmmmmmm. Is life without Philly Soft Pretzels worth living? I'm determined to have an I CAN attitude about this so I'm trying really hard to get out of this brain freeze about it.

You see, I'm not one to attract attention to myself. I try hard not to be in the limelight as much as possible. To blend in and be part of the woodwork, almost unseen, and it works most times....most people don't see me. The more I read, the more I'm afraid this is going to put me somewhere where I can be seen, or attract attention to myself. I'm not liking that at all.

I'm still on it...I'm not losing faith....I DO feel better. Not running to the bathroom as soon as I'm finished eating has been the only major improvement I've seen so far. That's a big one for me though. That has been a symptom as far back as I can remember - i mean 5 or 6 I remember doing it, jr. high, high school, always. Oh well....now my thoughts are in cyberworld.

Sorry this message is so late in coming, I have only started to read your blog. We could be one and the same. I did not like the fact that having to go public about being gluten free would put me in the limelight. But it has, and I don't think you can avoid it with family and freinds. And it has not been too bad. I don't need to try too hard to blend in with the world, as I am not a mover or shaker, I am still the same person I was before, nearly two years later. If anything I have learnt that I have to put myself further up on my list of priorities and that is what I am trying to do.
