I know now that I have been a "Celiac" all my life, I have had mental problems, eating, skin, eye, ear problems all my life, I have been in a mental institution a couple of times, only to be diagnosed wrong, I was put on meds, locked up, beaten, you name it, it happened to me, I'm surprised I'm not in prison for the things I could have done. I am 56 years old, and scared, my sister died at the age of 57, she was almost 300 LBS, I have always been around 100 LBS, even after 5 children, I started putting on weight around 2 years ago, I am now 140 LBS, and I was always in pain, and had chronic diarrhea, heart burn, my boyfriend got worried, he thought it was an appendicitis, so he had me go to my doctor, she also thought that it was an appendicitis, so she sent me to the hospital immediately, there at the hospital I learned what I should have know 56 years ago, "I'm a Celiac", and I know now that my sister died of it, so I'm trying to get the word out to my own family, as well as the world, I bought a book "Gluten-Free Diet By Shelley Case", and I carry it in my very large purse, I use it where ever I go, and I talk to people about it all the time, it is so important that we learn everything we can about our bodies, and the diseases we have, and how to control them, hopefully without meds, we can do it naturally, the more natural you go, the better, I am still learning, since May 24th 2009, I have been gluten free, I no longer have migraines, the pain from fibromyalgia, diarrhea, heart burn or any of the other symptoms I have had for years, I feel like a new person.
