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.

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.

    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
