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.

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
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!

Started Specific Carbohydrate Diet on 8-16-09 because son was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and want to give him moral support.
Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.
