At A Loss

12 April 2004 - 09:24 AM

I was recently diagnosed with Celiac Sprue Disease. I am at a loss for where to even begin. I meet with a dietcian this afternoon but I am still very very sick. I have some questions. How long will it take for me to heal from this? I have my days that are few and far between where I feel better than I have in years but then there are days/weeks., where I am so sick that I cant even get out of bed. From about Thursday of last week up until yesterday I didnt get out of bed. Is depression normal with this disease? My kids are always wondering why Mommy is sick...how do I explain to them that I am sick and this is a chronic disease to where I will always be sick?

I am just frusterated more than anything. I was a healthy active 23 year old up until 4 months ago when I started getting really sick. I had a mis-diagnosis at a reputable hospital here in Iowa and I never went back...I sought out a second opinion and got some answers finally. Now I am trying to cope with a lifestyle change that I dont even know where to begin with.

Any and all help would be appreciated.

Thanks. :)
