Taz,

It sounds like you've been through a LOT in the last few months. Some of these things take time to get over, and you need to give yourself time to heal.

If you have allowed yourself time to grieve after your loss, then that is awesome.

As far as the running and training, you may need more time to heal from the emotional scars than the physical. If you want to go back to the gym, then go, exercise, get back into training. Do not expect to be able to run as far or as fast right off the bat.

You WILL recover. We all do. We are here to hear you vent and offer advice. But it will take some time. Do not let others advancements get in the way of your recovery from both the celiac and the accident.

And if all else fails, the old addage may apply here "That which doesn not kill you only makes you stronger"

I hope you feeel better soon, but you should also draw on the strength of those around you who you can counton for support.

It's okay to be mad, the fact that you are continuing

your training tells me that you're determined and that's

good for you physically and mentally. And while

perhaps I haven't gone through anything near what you did,

I was in a nasty car wreck 3 months before my national

soccer cup that I compete in (just last week in fact).

So yes, it does suck to watch everyone advance while

you're in pt and can't do much. Not only could I not

train - I hang out with those women they're all my friends!

It was already bad enough that I was the "bubble child"

with food allergies and celiac!

For me, balancing my totally limited diet was really hard -

for fast carbs all I can eat are rice noodles, potatos, quinoa.

For protein (the absolute most difficult thing) I eat

shelled hemp seed, drink hemp protein, and make my

own veggie protein burgers with sunflower and pumpkin

seeds, quinoa, flaxseed meal and add some hemp protein

to them (can't taste it if you season it right). I eat tons

of veggies which are also carbs.

When I was still crashing and burning - I got my iron checked

and guess what - anemic - so I take a liquid iron supplement which

has helped. I also use a sublingual b-complex since I don't eat

meat (you need b-12 from somewhere). Prior to my workouts

I usually drink an energy drink (along with tylenol and my inhaler B)

so I don't fall apart) I make sure that I am hydrated too.

It took me over a year to come back from the attack of celiac -

and I'm still not quite there yet from the auto mishap, so give

yourself some time and flexibility but don't give up!

You will get there just put your frustrations into finding

the foods, supplements and routine that works for you.

Hope this monologue helps some!

MmHmm, that little green monster is rearing his ugly head. It takes time to recover from physical injuries, more time to recover from emotional injuries. Celiac causes all kinds of problems, one of them being that your entire body is trying to heal. Keep on keeping on, one day you will suddenly realize how easy it is again. Look at this as a test of whether or not you really want to run again.

Sorry, I really do understand how frustrating it is. I've been an athlete all my life and for the past 10 years I've had health problems and just can't seem to keep up the same level. And it's not just because I'm getting older. For me, the key is to just keep on going and do the best that I can and try not to compare myself with other people. But I know that's easier said than done. Good for you to keep it up and not quit! Maybe not a lot of words of wisdom, but I just want to give you a little support and encouragement.

thankyou for not judgeing me harshly, the green monster has a big hold of me i think and i hate that. thanx also for the advice, i have to let you know tho that the accident wasnt serious i was back running 2 weeks after but it hit me mentally rather than phisically. i will try to get a hold of this and work through the emeoinal stuff and work on my diet to get enough of thr right carbs. thankyou all for letting me vent and be so understanding.

    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
