In Topic: Biggest Obstacle In Coping With celiac disease

13 July 2010 - 07:38 PM

I have to agree. OTHER PEOPLE! I could just yank them my way at times and say would you like to come into MY world for a bit? HUH?

I have an upcoming laproscopy and when a family member found out she said well I thought that the gluten free diet had fixed it all?

Now, in all fairness I realize she is uneducated in the subject but I am really tired of explaining myself. It really felt like she was saying ohhhhh "another" issue??? I just politely explained that it took years to get this sick and it will probably take years to discover all the damage and get better.

ARGH!

***I also miss Chic Fil A !! It was my favorite fast food place. Plus I am a cow lover so the theme was great for me!

You can still have Chic Fil A...they have gluten-free choices

Being able to go places where the bathroom is more than 7 ft away; enjoying life as a whole again without as much fear; using imodium rarely instead of daily; feeling good again (which I didn't for years); also learning how to cook in new ways. That's just the beginning.... :lol:

:ph34r:I also have those dreams where I eat a huge amount of gluten food (seem to forget about celiac at the time) and then realize in horror what I have done. What a relief to wake up!

You are so lucky, not b/c of the ER trip, but b/c the dr was celiac savvy. Most of the doctors I have dealt with don't think gluten is the cause of anything unless it's strictly gastro. Even my gastro's office told me that sinus problems and/or headaches don't have anything to do with celiac. :(

Yes, Sue, the part about causing osteoporosis is true. I have confirmed osteopenia due to not absorbing calcium caused by damaged intestines. I have not had a recent bone scan, but hope that things have improved since being gluten-free. :rolleyes:
