Unfortunately, I haven’t yet seen any changes! Some people say it takes months or years, though, so I’ll stick it out for another two or three months, and if there aren’t any improvements at all, I think I’ll likely go back to my old diet containing gluten. If there is even a slight change while on this gluten-free diet, then I’ll keep it up. I’m so desperate to rid this last symptom of fatigue.
It hasn’t been as tricky as I initially thought it would be. Buying substitutes from the shops when cooking at home has been pretty easy. Eating out and round other people’s houses can be really tricky, though. Before going out for food, I thoroughly check the menu, so I know in advance what it’s like there and if there is anything I can have/what I can have.
