SCD has helped me get back into life--I am so grateful. However, my heart is vegan.

I was diagnosed with Crohns while in the hospital for the second time in a month's time last year.
I said, "fine". I went home and researched and found many that advocated the SCD diet---which is pretty much the opposite of this diet plan.
Everyone claims they are healing with both plans. SCD has helped me get back into life--I am so grateful. However, my heart is vegan. When I have tried (twice) to live on a vegan diet I feel weak, airy headed, shaky and unstable. It's even scary to drive.
I talked with someone to day that said this may be due to the fact that I am not eating any grains or flours at all----I can't. SCD says no potatoes. So that leaves me eating and drinking juices. Honestly sometimes I feel like I will float off the planet---not a fun feeling.
Has anyone had a similar experience with eating vegan? Has anyone transitioned from SCD to this diet? I am kinda scared to go off the SCD diet because I don't want to get sick and not be able to work.
Thank you for your help!
