What Is Normal Now?

07 January 2004 - 04:06 PM

New to the board but have been reading since my diagnosis a month ago. I was just wondering if some of the celiac vetrans could tell me if the word normal in realation to symptoms and the body in general is the same normal you felt before having celiac. Mine seems to have blossomed after a viral infection so I clearly remember what I was like before celiac disease. But at this point it feels like my whole system has changed and it won't go back to the way it was. Are bowl movements ever "normal" again? Does your body gain and lose weight the way it used to, or is this a whole new game? And what about the mental? My fog seems better but I have extreme anxiety over health issues now. Every rash, swollen node, or health condition now is feared to be cancer. It sounds stupid I know, but maybe someone can relate. Anyway, thanks for all your postings as they have helped me over the last month. I don't feel so isolated while on the boardand now look foreward to participating and not just lurking. Thanks again.
