We made it through! My beautiful gluten free twelve year old has regained her smile and the bounce is back in her step.
After sleeping for twelve hours one night and forcing myself to go to the gym yesterday, I am also starting to feel human again.
As I mentioned in my last post, this recent illness was pretty hard for the Gluten Free Kid.
It was pretty hard for Mom too~
I can't tell you how many times I have held back that poor child's hair while she vomited out all of her insides and then some. Even though this illness was not gluten-related, being back in that situation again was like some bad deja vu.
But we got over it and we are moving on.
We try to be as positive as possible about living gluten free and I still see many "silver linings" in our new lifestyle . . .
But there are bumps in the road and sometimes it is just hard.
Everyone has "why me" moments when you just want to find something quick and easy to eat,
and that is okay.
It is okay to get fed up every once in a while and to acknowledge the hardship of living gluten free,
but then you have to get up,
get over it, and
get your bounce back in your step.
You have to find your own "silver linings" of the gluten free life.
Be thankful for the good health you now enjoy.
Be thankful for your new gluten free friends.
Find the opportunities the diet offers you and dwell on those~
Because living gluten free does not mean you cannot live the life you choose!
Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity,Ephesians 5:15 - 16
