Custom Dimensions & Metrics Suddenly Grayed Out & Unusable!

So today while I'm perusing my dashboard that combines data from multiple sources, I reconnected to my google analytics account after being connected to a spreadsheet that no longer existed and was replaced by another source. When I reconnected I was told that certain metrics would no longer be available, which seemed odd, but I wasn't touching data that was already connected to GA so I figured that my dashboard would remain unaffected. I was wrong, now all my custom metrics and dimensions are grayed out even though they're based on pre-existing fields in GA. Any guidance on this and getting my dashboards back to normal?
