My Family Is Recovering From My Celiac

Posted by , 13 December 2013 - - - - - - · 1,230 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 , 29 November 2013 - - - - - - · 695 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 , 14 November 2013 - - - - - - · 1,057 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 , 17 October 2013 - - - - - - · 853 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 , 06 September 2013 - - - - - - · 1,099 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

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 , 02 May 2013 - - - - - - · 972 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!...
