Finally, things are looking up. For whatever reason, I am now inundated with calls for interviews. Phew.. Just stopped writing this for 30 minutes because, yet another potential placement has called. BANG BAM BOOM! Here we go !!!

The SO is leaving in 2 weeks to spend spring break with his family in Germany. I really hope I am working by then because I wi...

Then And Now

Posted by in katiesalmons' Blog, 01 March 2015 - - - - - - · 1,316 views

I was diagnosed with Celiac July 2014, so very sick for about 6 months prior to that, vomiting, fatigue, you name it. So once I was diagnosed it was time for a change. GLUTEN FREE! Well that couldn't be to hard right? Well that's what I thought but not so easy. I still struggle with it some days it's so easy other days hard as ever. We have pot lucks and...

3 Weeks And Still Trying For 100% Gluten-Free

Posted by in badcasper's Blog, 01 March 2015 - - - - - - · 1,343 views

I never really knew what was wrong with me, but I always knew I didn't like a lot of foods. Some I didn't like because I had strange reactions to them. I have not been diagnosed but the change in my diet is amazing. I just changed my vitamins and wow, its like they work. My aches and pains have improved. my energy level is back to normal. Im trying very h...

Gluten Free Battle Is Up Hill, But I Can See The Sky From Here

Posted by in Celiac Ninja's Blog, 22 February 2015 - - - - - - · 83 views

Obviously I'm not good at titling my blogs, lol, but the latest events of the Gluten Free struggle is what I'm posting here.

I've forgotten about my thyroid. Conveniently I'm sure, when I was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma, I put off dealing with the nodules on my thyroid for years. It's been 9 years. I think I was hoping getting gluten free would...

What Could Be Causing My Health Issues?

Posted by in Intolerance issue? Helpppp!, 13 February 2015 - - - - - - · 4,344 views

I have had irregular movements since As long as I can remember. Stressful situations caused loose stool and any other time they would be stuck. I did not realize how screwed up they were until I went gluten free when I was 17. I went gluten free for 3 months and it was the most regular I had ever been.
Fast forward to this year I just turned 20. I had bl...

entocort, microscopic colitis

I am a week into my Entocort steroid therapy for microscopic colitis. I can say that I have no discernible side effects from this drug. It has slowed down my bowel significantly. I am no longer running to the bathroom 8-10x/day. I probably go about half that amount now. The quality of the bowel movements has improved but it varies throughout the day. I ha...

Hey, everyone!

So, I went to the doctor's yesterday with my loving boyfriend and I got diagnosed with Turner's Syndrome *sigh* My karyotype tested positive much to my dismay :unsure:

And, also, I tested positive for osteopenia from my dexa scan as well. So, I have to get my bones back into shape so it doesn't progress into fractures and such. Anyone h...

Weight Loss Mystery/don't Live By A Grain Silo!

Posted by in 1desperateladysaved's Blog, 03 November 2014 - - - - - - · 13,585 views

I am going down weight loss mountain the past few months. Things are (as usual) too complicated for me to really know why. My own guess ( just now) is that I finally got the last big allergen out of my diet. . I had previously avoided all sweets except for tiny amounts of honey. Honey was something I had not considered for possible allergies, and finally...

"just" Gluten Sensitive

Posted by in Edgymama's Gluten Free Journey, 29 October 2014 - - - - - - · 14,349 views

Nurse from the GI doctor's office called back and I was negative for celiac disease. Although a little discouraged I know that the month and a half I was off of gluten and how drastically improved I felt that I need to adopt the gluten-free lifestyle. It surely isn't going to hurt me!

I will continue to visit here for ideas and inspiration and to documen...

Gluten Free Since Feb. 2014

Posted by in kelcat's Blog, 22 September 2014 - - - - - - · 8,195 views

I have had stomach problems for as long as I can remember. I was told I had IBS & put on medication which didn't seem to help.
I started putting on weight & my belly was really bloated. I was even asked if I was pregnant.
I went through some very stressful times from 2009 until 2011. I lost my husband then daughter next my mother n law. I was bare...

3 Weeks Today

Posted by in JesikaBeth's Blog, 22 July 2014 - - - - - - · 15,773 views

Today marks 3 weeks since going gluten free. Overall I feel a world better!!! At first, I was sleeping really good (like the first week and a half), but for the last week and a half or so, I've had horrible insomnia. Now, I am a chronic insomniac anyway, but I was rather enjoying that week and a half of restful sleep <_<

Not sure if it's a glute...

Hope For A Less Challenging Gluten Challenge

Posted by in The Patient Celiac , 20 July 2014 - - - - - - · 16,167 views

The current “gold standard” tests for celiac disease include testing for celiac antibodies in patients’ blood and performing an endoscopy to obtain small bowel biopsies. In order for these tests to be accurate, one has to be eating gluten up until the time of testing. If a patient is already on the gluten-free diet when these tests are done, the diagnosi...

Well, I guess I haven't been on since around last Fall or sometime around there. Either way, it's been a while! I just finished my Sophomore year of college with a 4.0 :rolleyes: and am finally back home for the summer! Some of you may have heard about us on the news recently actually... we had quite a lot of rain a few weeks ago that basically destroyed...

Okay so, where do I begin. On Tuesday, April 29, I went to see my naturopathic doctor for the first time. We talked about skin issues and food sensitivities, and he mentioned that a patient of his had rosacea and was tested for food sensitivities. After being tested positive for yeast/wheat sensitivities and giving both up..his rosacea cleared up. I didn'...

Wonderful Friends

Posted by in KCG91's Blog, 21 April 2014 - - - - - - · 1,141 views

The last few weeks have been a bit fraught over here with uni finals and The Job Hunt beginning, to the point where I ducked out of a dinner and night out with old school friends on Saturday because I didn't want to join in with the chat about uni and jobhunting, or to once again grill waiters in front of my friends. My friends are fine about it, I just h...
