My Family Is Recovering From My Celiac

Posted by 1desperateladysaved, 13 December 2013 - - - - - - · 1,208 views

Disclaimer: My reactions are unique and may be more than celiac, therefore not many people would need to panic they will get like reactions. The reactions aren't labeled, so I really don't know why I am having them this way. Please don't panic .

Now, My Family Believes Me!

In my illness, I would say daily. I am tired. I didn't mean that I over did it...


Thanksgiving Went Well

Posted by 1desperateladysaved, 29 November 2013 - - - - - - · 674 views

This year a doctor told me not to eat anywhere but home. My body is acting super-sensitive and I didn't want to rock the boat. I alerted my sister, the hostess, and my brother that I would be unable to eat at the gathering, but would eat on the way there. On the way there I enjoyed my very filling rice and beef casserole. I had planned to do a regular...


Good News/ Bad News

Posted by 1desperateladysaved, 14 November 2013 - - - - - - · 1,034 views

I have just passed through several days of cramping, swelling, and gassiness. All of this as a result of nothing specific that I know of. Perhaps after 19 months gluten free it is just further recovery. Happily, I woke up today without the cramping and felt excellent since.

. Previous blood counts, over the passed 5 years, showed immature blood cells...


My Friend: Pain!

Posted by 1desperateladysaved, 17 October 2013 - - - - - - · 805 views
Before I diagnosis, I did not feel celiac pain. I would notice my tummy bloating, my legs swelling, and have a pregnant looking belly. I had extreme fatigue and foggy mind, but didn't realize those until it went away one day. I trudged on with these mysterious symptoms that were "All in my head." Wondering in my dreamy state if something possibly was wron...


The Advantages Of Having Celiac: For Me And For My Family

Posted by 1desperateladysaved, 06 September 2013 - - - - - - · 1,076 views

I owe a lot to celiac,

If it weren't for celiac I would eat like an American: chips, soda pop, and candy until gone, but undiagnosed celiac motivated me to cut out sweets. I learned to eat vegetables, I grew more and more motivated to learn about and use foods to nourish.

When I got married I knew how to cook hotdogs, chocolate cake, chocolate chip...


Up The Mountain, And Out Of The Fog

Posted by 1desperateladysaved, 25 August 2013 - - - - - - · 1,030 views
success, health rewards
I began my gluten free trek in about May of 2012. I did classic gluten free for a few months and then went grain free. Last November at about 6 months gluten free I had my first nutrient absorption test. In spite of my natural, whole food, organic diet, and many supplements my nutrient levels were low. Especially the Vitamin B levels were unacceptable. I...


My Last Dentist Trip, Until The Next One.

strange reactions
I shouldn't be too surprised. This week (May 12) got off to an awful start. I should have maybe cancelled the dentist for this week. Still, I went off a little optimistic that I would not get lectures this time. I have been gluten free for over a year and hadn't had any cavities for several years.

The hygentist listened half sympathetically as I mention...

The Fireworks Are Flying

Onedesperatelady may need a new name! Getting giddy usually happens to me before the next dive comes. Dive after dive has come to me since I have been really battling celiac disease (mostly Undiagnosed) for 6 years! By battling, I mean spending much efforts to help my body work right, my actual plight with celiac. disease has been at least 30 years....


The Grief Of Getting Better?!

Posted by 1desperateladysaved, 02 May 2013 - - - - - - · 954 views

For this post, a "smiley" with tears gushing out both sides of the face is what I needed. One would think that getting better would be nothing but happy, but I found that grief engulfed me.

For years I had lived in the fog and I knew nothing else. Then one glorious day, the fog cleared. Then the  realization struck. I had lived in the fog for 25 years!...
