(health) When will I learn?

My nephew got married this weeked.  Yay, weddings!  Except for the fact that most weddings are full of gluten, and I am finding that I am really, really weak when it comes to gluten.  This is no one else’s fault but mine.  I had rolls and wedding cake and cookies…and I still feel crappy this morning.


My head hurts, my nose hurts, I’m bloated and sluggish, and I want nothing more than to take meds and go back to bed.  Unfortunately, I don’t have that option.  So I’m going to be pounding the antihistimines today (they help with the reaction), and the tea, and I’m going to push myself to walk on my lunch break.   Lunch itself is whole foods – a yogurt, some pepper strips, peanut butter and apple butter on rice cakes, and more tea.  I have a con coming up, and although I was planning on some things that had gluten in them for it (because let’s face it, it’s easy), I’m changing my plans.  I think instead of american chop suey, we’ll do chili  – still able to be done in the crockpot, but gluten free.  I think we’ll also bring some gluten-free biscuits, and apples.  I’ll be bringing rice cakes too.  I’d forgotten how easy they are to top and use.


Wish me luck.  I’m feeling really awful today, but I can’t stop my life just to recover.  There are things that I need to do, and dammit, I’m going  to do it.  Live and learn – I just hope I can remember this lesson this time.
