dd has always been sensitive to gluten, dairy and sugar. she could eat a little bit here and there, but not pig out on it.
so right when she turned 10 her hormones began acting up and she struggled with huge mood swings.
and boom she could not eat ANY dairy or gluten and not too much sugar. she has missed a LOT of days from school due to bad tummy ache. seriously severe griping stomach aches.
why did she get stomach aches? because she could not stay away. everytime she cheated she paid for it the next day.
we tried every kind of 'sugar' and they all reacted. she reacted if she ate a whole small bag of skittles, or if she ate 6 tangerines. both were hard on her.
she definitely gets the sugar blues and becomes depressed and suicidal when she eats a lot of sugar.
then a couple of weeks ago she cheated. nothing. so she cheated even more. no stomach ache. she ate cheese and butter and no other form of dairy. she's gotten a little gassy.
i am confused mamas. what is going on here. why can she have severe stomach aches at one time and none the other? what's up with that?
