My Hopes And Dreams For 2005....
0

4 posts in this topic

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

My hope is that 2005 will bring us a celiac cure.

My hope is that the medical establishment will wake up and really start to understand and detect this disease in the millions of people who currently are suffering from it and don't know what it is they have.....

My hope is that the world will turn a corner and really start trying in earnest to obtain peace around the world.....

My hope is that God will take care of all of the children left without parents in Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Thailand and all of the other countries effected by the tragedy this week.......

I have high hopes for myself and my family this year. We are moving in six days, we sold our house in the city (Toronto) and bought a house out of town (about 45 minutes outside of the city), in a nice little town. I am staying home on sick leave for about 1 year to concentrate on getting my health back on track. I have a positive feeling that we will find a treatment that works for me for the collagenous colitis and my health will really take a turn for the better..... I am excited to start a new life in a new town, new home, get the children into a community that has that "small town" feel to it. We made enough from the sale of our house to be able to climb out of the mountain of debt we are in, and take that weight off our shoulders.... Yep, I really have high hopes for this year.....

I hope for health and happiness for 2005 to all my friends on this site.

Have a wonderful Happy New Year!

Karen

Yes, Happy New Year, everyone!

I have similar hopes to yours :). Also, I heard Dr. Green talk on NPR a couple weeks ago. He said that within the next five years, there will very likely be a treatment (not cure) for celiac. It won't allow you to eat wheat, but, I guess it would heal your intestines and perhaps aid your digestive system. I guess the 1/2 hour radio segment is also a positive step for celiac awareness. We're getting articles in magazines, newspapers, and now segments on the radio. The word will get out...it might take a little while, but more people are getting diagnosed now and I think the word is really starting to spread. After all, if you look at how many new members we have and the rate at which they are coming, we're making progress! :D

Of course I hope that I can sort out my stomach and digestive issues during this next year. Actually, I hope we can all get healthy in 2005! All the best to everyone here and happy new year!

AMEN to all those comments, Karen! :)

With what has happened with the tidal wave and tsunami (sp), it has really made me realise how very blessed I am.

I wish all my friends here a wonderful and peaceful 2005.

God bless.

    • Toblerone
      I don't eat chocolate often, but I have never had a gluten reaction to Toblerone. I trust it to be gluten-free.
    • So I've been glutened....
      I am so sorry for how your feeling.  I can sympathize; over time I notice I couldn't have any type of gluten free products.  I read that since you don't have villi in your small intestines you have no defenses, meaning even the tiniest bit of exposure causes a flare up.  I even have to be careful when I purchase products by reading the labels to ensure it says manufactured by a nut, soy, milk and wheat free facility.  Be very careful, unfortunately
    • Symptoms despite strict gluten-free -- new here
      I have been reading a lot about leak gut syndrome which is new to the medical community in the sense that they don't know how to manage it.  If (you are female) make sure to do a yearly pap and uterine check to ensure there is no issues there.  If you are not a female then definitely confirm with an endoscopy if your small intestines are still damaged.  I am looking into doing the leaky gut diet to see if it will help, the book I am reading is "Eat Dirt" by Dr Josh Axe.  Especially since I notice anytime I am exposed to gluten by accident my symptoms are worse each and every time.  I know get severe back and rib cage pain, with bloating, gurgling and diarrhea with severe nausea.  I am willing to try anything and I am now reading this book and applying the diet to see if I can heal my intestinal lining.
    • Help
      Ok so I had my colonoscopy & endoscopy last Thursday. Don't get results until July 13th as GI is on vacation. I've had bad pain in my lower left abdomen that wraps around to my lower back as well for the past 4 days..even hurts to touch lightly. Went back to the ER & they did an ultrasound & CT scan. The Doctor said that I have "prominent" lymph nodes in the area that is painful as well as thickening & inflammation of my Sigmond colon? Um ok what is that all about? Kind of freaking out over the whole swollen lymph nodes thing. Has anyone ever dealt with this before? 😒
    • Enormous Stool
      My 2 year old daughter has sufferd with extremely large stools for over a year. She will have a bm once or twice a week there has been blood sometimes i took her to the docs and they gave her some stool softner which didnt help they tried uping the dose which still didnt help and they told me it would eventually work which didnt she was then put on movicol which she was only supposed to get half a sachet still no diffrence i uped it to the the full sachet which helps a little she doesnt always have large stools but most of the time she does. She has got to a stage where she clenches and wont let it out because of how sore it is i try to put her on the toilet for it to come a little easier for her but she screams and will try hide herself in a corner and wont let you anywere near her it is heart breaking to watch her. If anyone has any in advice i would really like to hear.   Thanks.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
      Larry
