  1. Thank you! It makes me feel so much better that I am not the only one out there! Really is a huge relief to me.
  2. I use Glutamine everyday. I lift weights and I found it helped with that first. I than ended up taking it more when I found out it helped with Celiacs. It does help me I think and I actually ran out of it so im in need of a bottle. As for my lab values, all are great. Except I am hypoglycemic also but I have found it only helps me. I am interested in the articles you both posted and am anxious to read them.
  3. Thank you everyone for your comments and support. Well that will be the LAST time that I even attempt to eat gluten in hopes of proving myself to others. I have proven it to myself and my fiance believes and sees the pain I go through. That is the only person that matters to me and if he can see it and believes in not "crazy" than that's good enough for me. I haven't had a reaction this bad in a while and its enough for me to give it up for good. Thank you again for the support and comments. Y'all really helped me realize that its not about pleasing others (because no one will ever understand) its what I have to do for my health. Katie<3
  4. Hey Everyone! My name is Katie and I have been gluten free since August 2011. I have gone through many different doctors and test to find out what was wrong with me and I finally read a book about gluten free diet (hasselbeck). I went gluten free and surprisingly most of my symptoms were gone. Surely this can be true, I said, so id go back to eating gluten. Each time I have done this I have said "BIG MISTAKE!" and gone back to eating gluten free. Well the problem is my mother and family. My mom thinks it is stupid (she has not said this, but, my her remarks I can tell she thinks so.) It makes me feel stupid and I feel like maybe its in my head. Which everyone seems to want to tell me. Well the remarks have gotten the best of me again and I went and ate gluten today. Does anyone else have this problem with feeling silly? It is so aggravating that they don't know what pain you go through and cant just accept it. I also have found out I am intolerant to soy, dairy, and yeast also to make matters worse. I have tried to get the testing to verify I have celiac or gluten intolerance but I can not afford the testing. I think that unless I have that written on a piece of paper, I will be taken as a "joke" or "hypochondriac". Has anyone else had this problem or have some advise for me? Also, has anyone diagnosed themselves because they have simply given up like me? Thanks everyone, Katie
