I think I know what Paul was referring to when he lamented that he could not do what he wanted to do, but did all the time that which he did not want to do. Oreos. Paul was referring to Oreos.
Okay, maybe I'm off by a bit, but I would totally understand if that was it! I have a list of negative symptoms a mile long when I eat gluten, but I still eat the gluten. This battle in my head and tummy has been going on for about 3 years now and I still haven't won. I am winning some of the battles (no pizza for a month!), but I get tired of caring. To make it more frustrating, the better I have been complying, the more pronounced the effects when I don't. Here are my latest results:
Cheated and Ate: Resulted In:
Pizza Anxiety attack, depression
Oreos Serious mental fog. Serious.
Beer My one beer felt like three
Flour tortillas Weakness in left hand
It goes on, but you get the point. Moral of the story? If Paul can complain a little, so can I.
