I can understand why everyone is getting up in arms with the word 'cure' by eliminating gluten products. I was and still am gluten and wheat free, as well as a number of other foods I cannot tolerate/am allergic to, for about 15-20 years before being diagnosed with Ulcerative Pancolitis, then Type Unspecified, possible Crohns, but am now back to officially having Pancolitis. I was told by one specialist that there is probably an overlap between IBD and IBS/food intolerance, rather one being the root cause of the other.
At least glutenfree girl isn't telling us that we have our disease because 'you only have your problem because you want it' as I was once told by a female in a store selling essential oils!!! You can imagine the look I gave her and the thoughts I had (including wanting to physically smack her). Yeah, we all so want what we've got. I just so enjoy not eating certain foods I love, having a close relationship with my toilet, etc, etc........
Peace and Love!
Ok guys...like mmmnavy said...peace. This is supposed to be a site that EVERYONE should feel comfortable coming on and sharing, venting, and supporting each other. Not making them feel stupid, which I feel many of you did. If this is what works for her, then we all should be supporting her. She probably will not post on here again because of all the negative responses she received. And she may have some great advice, information, and support that could of helped someone else.
Just remember that we're all in the same boat...even though the storms may not be the same.
