  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I have the same frustrations as you. I don't have celiac, but gluten intolerant (and lactose too). Even though these foods were making me ill I still continued to consume gluten every once in a while simply because I was feeling bad for myself and didn't think a little would matter. Every once in a while I had some milk chocolate and I couldn't stop, it was like heroin or something. It got to the point where I was so sick of running to the bathroom and feeling horrible that I decided to be strong and not even touch the stuff. One bite of a cookie just isn't worth the pain. I even had to tell the guy I was dating that I have to be really strict and he cannot tempt me or ask me to try foods with gluten. It is important to first make myself happy. I also made a point to my family to stop buying gluten foods; if they do I made a designated space in the cabinet for cereal and pasta. I think if it is out of sight then you don't want it. I have been feeling so much better ever since I stopped occasionally eating some gluten. Instead fill your fridge with lots of foods you like and you can eat. I feel like there are so many choices out there!
  3. I was just told my blood test came back negative for Celiac. I know that I cannot eat gluten and it is the cause for many problems I have been having. I have been eating gluten free for 6 months and have noticed a real change. Every once in a while I start to feel depressed and have stomach problems (i think when i somehow consume some gluten). Should I go to a doctor anyway to see how bad the problem is? I know that staying away from gluten is the only solution.
  4. I feel like I am always unhappy. I don't know if this is a sign of being glutened because I feel depressed and tired most of the time. Maybe I am still eating gluten somehow. I don't know what else to do but eat a strict diet of brown rice and vegetables (basically) that is the only thing that doesn't make me feel sick, tired, moody, and with stomach problems. I need help. I can't lay in bed all day by myself forever!
  5. I was on the pill from the time I was 15-21 (I am 23 now) I think being on the mediation cased the gluten intolerance. I didn't always have a problem with dairy and wheat until I was about 18 or 19 so this is suspiscious. Has anyone ever heard of this or did this arise from stress or genetics?? I know that most birth control contains lactose. Does anyone know of any gluten free birth control and if Nuvaring is safe? I really don't want to go on the pill again but what are the options? I need some advice because my gyno isn't very helpful and I haven't found a doctor yet regarding celiac disease. I just know I get really sick when I eat food containing gluten.
  6. I just wanted to thank everyone for the responses from my post yesterday regarding eating out at resteraunts with friends and dates. I talked to the guy I am seeing and mentioned that it hurt my feelings when he called my diet weird and suggests/tempts me with foods I cannot eat. It is not worth being sick over and it is far easier for him to find a healthy place for me to eat than it is going to a pizza joint (i am the one being inconvienenced afterall). He told me he had no idea it bothered me so much and he wouldn't mention it again and apologized numerous times. I suggested cooking a yummy meal at his place or watching a movie for tomorrow night and he was delighted! He just wants to spend time with me- the food thing is more of an issue for me. I am so hypersensitive! All I had to do was stand my ground and tell him that it really does harm my body to eat some of the things he eats and i have been lax about it because I don't want to be a pest or a pain for him. I cannot do this anymore! I can't control the foods that negatively affect my body and this is the way life has to be for me so he has to accept it. He assured me that he really likes me and how the relationship is going and he is willing to accomodate for me and not criticize or talk about it. I feel so much better! I realized that he won't like me more if i drink beer and eat pizza, pasta, bread, and ice cream. He likes ME and NOT my food choices. Thanks for letting me vent for those reading and responding.
  7. It changes everyday but my favorites are: banana/apple with almonds when I am on the go almond butter on gluten free waffle/toast or rice cake plain oatmeal (if you can have it) with blueberries i love those gluten free pancakes you can make every once in a while (contains 1 egg) the morning is the best time to have fruit and i love anything with green tea!
  8. I have adjusted pretty well to the gluten free diet and it has drastically changed my life for the better. Recently however I have had problems because I've been more social with friends and now dating someone for a couple months now. It has been harder for me to explain celiac disease and resist temptation and pressure from friends than it has been changing my diet! I am starting to feel bad for myself because I feel like everyone criticizes me and thinks I'm weird because I am following a healthy lifestyle. The guy I am dating has gone out of his way to take me to places I can eat food but then he will suggest ice cream and I feel like it has become sort of a hassle or inconvience or I'm not fun. I don't know what to do but I think I am just overly sensitive about this and need some advice. And yes I have caved in a few times (how can you really avoid gluten in resteraunts completely???) And feel like crap after I do!! I just want to be isolated sometimes so I don't have to go out to eat and deal with people. Anyways, why do people care what you eat if it doesn't affect them?
