Thats alot of neat ideas for meals, right now i'm going to be sitting down to eat hotdogs (W) rice, of course no bun, lol. So anyway did anyone of you guys used to get dizzy spells with blurred vision as a symptom? cause i did, some of them got so bad that my vission almost went all black and i had to hold on to somthing to not fall over, freaked me out cause at the time i though i had a brain tumor. (I'm a hypocondriac) cause with that, i also had "SEVERE" i mean "SEVERE" adominal pains these got to be so bad then i fell to the floor and cried, of course at the time i was 14 and this is before i diagnosed, i weighed 68lbs.
And to add more to the problem i belived in my heart and mind that i was dying from the following: Colon Cancer, Stomach cancer, Kidey Failure, brain tumor, Radiation psning (dont ask), Heart disease, Thyroid cancer, and i think thats about it, but the awful thing about it was that i never told any of my troubles, not my mom or sis, no one, i just had all this lying on my own shoulders. AH! can't talk anymore Moms yelling to come eat, TTYL, and thanks for awsering my post.
Hey, just wanting to chat with other celiacs out there about the disease, how they came to cope with it, what they eat for breakfast, lunch (at school) and dinner. What kind of hobbies they are in to and just other thing.
Anyway my names Jeremiah and i was diagnoised July 20th 2002 (one week before my B-day) and ever since then it has been a rollercoaster ride, i went on and off my diet about 5 times. Well thats it for now, hope some one out there would like to chat, talk to you all later .
Hey i'm new to the celiac board, and when i was 14-15 yrs old, in the summer before i went out to my dads to get checked out cause my Mom was getting worried cause i was dropping drasticly. i weighed 68lbs at the lowest, and around 70 at the highest. Not only was i Celiac at the time i was also lactose intollerent, and had Candid sprew, which is a fungus that lives inside your intestines and feeds off sugar. Anway when i got out to my Dad and was checked out i had to go on a Gluten, Sugar, and Dairy free diet rigt away. Went on it one week before my 15th B-day. while out at my Dads i gained up to around 78lbs, then came home. Got into a sticky situation (which i wont post on here but if some of you want to really know about it just contact me at Thyraxeon@yahoo.com, or IM me on YIM with the account name Thyraxeon) Anyway had to go to Virginia while out there went off my diet for about 2 weeks, gained a few more pounds then the symptoms started to return and quickly got off.
In the fall came back home and while at home for almost a year of being gluten-free i was up around 90 some pounds, and when it came back to the next fall and i was 16yrs old i hit my highest weight of 102 and started looking healthy and good, but then we thought hey i look good why not treat myself to some donuts. BIG MISTAKE had donuts two weeks in a row. and now today i'm 18yrs old, weighing 72-75lbs and cannot gain weight. And i really need some help on how i could reverse this and get bac up to my weight, cause one thing that happend is for some reason i dont get hungry, i do eat meals but i dont eat alot. please some one post back to send me an E-mail, Thanks
