I have lost everyone in my life that i can conside in and im all alone and its starting to eat me up inside.

I try to talk to my "guy" friends but you know how that goes.. if anyone has the time or acually "cares" my msn is s0l3d@hotmail.com

Hi Lister, I am just finding this post. I am going to e-mail you OK. I am also in need of a good friend to talk to, and I am also a good listener. I am so sorry you are going through so much right now, I also have alot on my plate as well. I am sure we will have much to share with each other. Look for my e-mail, it will have my name Annalee in the address. :)

I'm new to the board so I don't know you but I started crying when I read your message about being alone as I feel secluded and alone too. Then I read your second post and really can relate as I am giving up Mr. Greenbud right now too! I have used it for years and years to sleep as celiac seems to give you insomnia. I felt I was addicted too, but I believe the addiction is the habit, not the weed. I am having some withdrawals, sweats, which I think is getting it out of my system, but most of it is finding something else to do. It was the same way when I quit smoking cigarettes, but I did it so I know I can do this. On the sights about quitting cigs they say you have to replace the habit with something else. I'm sure it is the same with this, we have to find things to keep us busy so we don't think about it and don't get bored. I am 60, female, have probably smoked pot off and on for over 40 years, and don't have a job right now as I can't stay well for more than a few days at a time. You need a second job, an outdoor hobby or to volunteer your time somewhere. You sound like a truly good person and you need to be around more people. I know people your age that have 2 or 3 fast food jobs so they can get enuf hours to live. I think it is great that you are working toward your future and trying to do this so you can become a manager and it is wonderful that your manager is giving you a chance. You need to get out of the house and stop isolating yourself. Those old friends are over and done with, move on. You will meet new and better friends. The older ones on this board will tell you that when you get fired, dumped on, thrown out of your home, whatever, you look back and realize it was for the best, as long as you pull yourself out of the muck of self-pity. And talking helps, so bless this board! I've been reading alot lately about positive vs. negative energy and The Law of Attraction because of that bestseller book The Secret. I have gotten very negative and sad and of course depressed with being sick and lonely all the time, and of course, when we are stoned, none of that mattered, but when we are not, it does. The Law of Attraction says you attract the vibes you give off. The Secret is a little too extreme for me, it says whatever you tell yourself will happen to you will. If you believe you will get rich, you will, etc. On Oprah's website there is a lot more about it as she believes in it and had all the experts on her show that teach it. But I'd like to quote a little from a different book called Postive Energy=Positive Life by Judith Orloff, MD. "A basic dynamic of energy is that we attract who we are-the more positive energy we give off the more we magnetize to us. Ditto for negativity. Love attracts love. Grumpiness attracts grumpiness. Rage attracts rage. The explanation? This human form of ours is a subtle energy transmitter. We constantly send out signals that others pick up on. This is why opportunities do or do not show up in our lives." She then goes on to explain how to improve our positve energy level. One simple thing that has helped me is to try to just smile more, whether you feel like it or not. She says our brain does not know the difference between a fake smile and a real one and smiling changes our brain waves and makes us feel happier. Also, smiling and feeling love in your heart when you speak to people, especially if they are rude or indifferent. It shocks them and can change their attitude! The kinder we are to ourselves and others the more love we communicate. She says we have to do emotional housecleaning, that healing negativity prevents toxic build-up in our energy field. We need to identify our best parts (we all have them) and speak from them. Before we meet new people or attend an event have an inner pep talk. Say, "I am going to focus on my strengths and feel and trust the positive energy inside of me", and that journaling, talking with friends, meditating and introspection all further the healing process. As negativity leaves us our energy becomes more alluring and starts drawing positive people to us. I hope some of this helps you, it is helping me. I have never meditated, got stoned instead, but that is one thing I can replace it with. I hope you try some of this and let us know how you are doing.

you have it so right! i've been reading "your best life now" by joel osteen. not even planning on looking to bring God back in my life, but i did. i feel like i need to be a positive person in order to have a positive life. my marriage sucks right now, but i keep telling myself every day that things are getting better, that i'm getting better. and i'm starting to feel that. most of the time anyway... :rolleyes:

can blackbeans get contaminated? did not wanna open a new thread? all i ate yesterday was my normal gluten-free foods and then i made blackbean and rice borritos using mission yellow corn tortias, blackbeans from a can (i checked ingrediants only salt onion powder and blackbeans) and minute rice... and today my stomich was hurting so bad, like really really bad, i took some milk of magnesia and my stomich pains went away after about a hour but i should not have to resort to meds to remove my pain constantly

i know that walmart's brand doesn't list any gluten ingredients, but it does say made in a facility that handles wheat. don't know which brand you used, but maybe they're the same. i always rinse my black beans very well before eating them. mostly thought, i've cut beans out because they make my stomach hurt. not as bad as glutening, but still very uncomfortable. or if i do eat beans, i try and eat refried, since they're mushed up and that makes them easier to digest.

i am totally excited for you that opportunities are opening up for you! grab hold of them, and hang on! this could be the chance to take you to the top!! your cat is way cute by the way :) have a great day!!!

Are you off the gluten-free diet? I am assuming you must be if you are eating this stuff.


Glad the comp thing is going well, you may even get buzy enough to quit your 'day' job eventually. I am glad things are going better.

how much magensium would you have to take to overdose? because i took the recommend dosage at 9am its 7pm and i still have not used the rr, so i was thinking about taking another dosage, not sure why but for the past like 2 weeks it seems like my colon has stoped working or something



Hi Lister,

I take lots of magnesium supplements for stress, anxiety and to help me sleep (along with calcium and or coral calcium). My nutritionist said that you will get a headache if you take too much magnesium. I've also read from several different sources that approx. 75% of the population is deficient in magnesium. I think this is a relatively safe supplement, especially for those who have absorbtion issues - I think it may be hard to take too much. I'm not an expert, this is just my experience.

Beans bother me sometimes and sometimes they don't ... when they're a major part of a meal, there is a bigger chance of them bothering me than if they're a side dish. I don't think it's the gluten ... seems okay to me.


Hi there...you seem to be on the site a lot and have been around for a while and have some good advice...so I'm stopping by to bother you, if you don't mind. Rather than write a book here (oops...tool ate, I guess)...I'm new to the celiac disease diet and lifestyle...it's horrible...but I'm working on it! I can't find how to post a question etc. other than by jumping in on someone's posts, as I am now. Can you tell me how? Several days ago I wrote several comments and questions but then wasn't able to get back on to check results for a couple days...and now I don't see a thing, either my posts or any answers. I think I've had celiac disease for 20-25 years at least and had no idea what all my "stomach problems" were. I'm pretty convinced now that it's celiac disease - seeing a dr. and having the bloodwork...maybe the colonoscopy but definitely do not want the endoscopy. Basically I'm losing weight like crazy...maybe not a lot to some people I've read on here...but a whole lot for someone who is 5'2" and already a small frame...I've lost 15 pounds in the last 6 weeks...my ribs are showing, I've lost several clothing sizes and I'm sooo hungry all the time. My "body" just aches...Eating rice/potatoes and homemade vegetable soup (tastes good but really gives me gas pains up under my ribs...)...trying some gluten-free products but want to know about practical things...like are hamburgers ok?? I read someone said arby's roast beef and their sauce was gluten-free??? This would be miraculous...I could actually put it on my gluten-free bread and feel normal...but somehow I'm not sure it's ok to eat. What about something like Classico spaghetti sauce on gluten-free noodles? I didn't read anything on the jar that was off limits for me but I'm so afraid to try it...?
OK I'm done for now...I'll check in tomorrow and see if you've responded...so far I haven't heard from anyone and it'd sure be nice to hear from another celiac person...it's such a whole new world and very scary to think I'm always going to feel like this...I'm hoping it does get a lot better. Thanks so much for your response (please respond to as many things as you can) - I really look forward to it. FYI: I'm a "new senior citizen" with grandkids who took early retirement due to health problems (only a couple years early), and have a business out of my home that I absolutely love. I feel very blessed - but sure could use some encouragement in the celiac disease department. Thanks! KarenDianne

Some great breakfast ideas, vans gluten free waffles( never had a reaction) with a side of eggs makes for a filling breakfast that sticks with you i usualy use like a smuckers syrup with it and its delishuse

as for your wait loss, it may be freaking but its acually normal. Did your diet consist of alot of gluten before going gluten-free? if so, the diet even though not 100% carb free is alot way alot less carbs, so as if it was the atkins(though its not) you do loose alot of weight fairly rapidly) i went from 300+ to 150 in less then 4 months, i was freaking out i thought i was dieing but after about 5 months the weight loss started to balance out and after a year i was finally able to gain about 7 pounds. I am currently at 155 and am as healthy as i have ever been (besides for random stomich pains)

Hi KarenDianne :)

Im not Carla but I would be glad to help out. To make a new post click on the forum area that you want to post such as "coping with" On the right side of the screen at the top there is a box labeled "new post" click on that and type your subject and message in there. It wont come up instanty because it needs to be pinned by a moderator. It usually doesn't take long at all to be pinned. With them pinning the post it helps keep spam and other offending posts off the board. Plain meat, vegetables and fruit are gluten free. All Classico sauces are gluten free. I love their alfredo sauces. My favorite noodles are tinkyada to go with it.

It is scary at first not knowing what to eat but slowly it becomes easy, also I would look through the products section of this board and the baking area. At restaurants there is always a risk of cross contamination with gluten. I dont eat out for this reason. Have you called on your soaps, shampoos, conditioners, and lotions? I do look some stuff up here but I call quite a bit too since alot of times they will send a list to you of all their gluten free stuff. For dish soap I use sunlight, shampoo and conditioner I use suave, and softsoap for handsoap. McCormick's spices that are individual are gluten free (meaning just cinnamon, sage, paprika). The mixes I use that are gluten free are mcCormick's sloppy joe and mccormick's taco seasoning.

:)

KarenDianne, looks like you've gotten some good answers. I'll send you a PM so that we don't further hijack Lister's thread.

Lister, I'm SO glad to hear you say you're doing so well. We've all been worried about you for so long, it's wonderful to know you're feeling better.
