Thanks so much. God is truely holding on to me sooo tight right now..i go back tuesday to make sure everything is done. the pain is sooo so raw right now.

so excited and nervous..dont think i will feeel calm till i hear that heart beat..i didnt get a positive hpt till i was a week late, so that makes me nervous about my hormone levels..but just putting it in Gods hands
any gluten-free mommy advice and prayer greatly appreciated !
It will be ok Think of all the positive you have going for you-- Some ppl have scopes 1 YEAR post Dx/gluten-free diet, and do not show improvement and YOU have--YAYY!!!
And it's wonderful that you have a DR that pays enough attention to your symptoms to send you to an endocrinologist,, you can tell from enough posts on this site that ppl with celiac tend to have dr's that seem to turn a deaf ear ..And you are very blessed to have a amazing famiily , and if there was ever a time to have Celiac or Addisons, it's now.. I often think of all the ppl years ago that suffered with unknown Celiac and other diseases.. no treatments,med's etc like we have now.. And you have this site and a wonderful supportive group of us that are walking in the same shoes Thoughts and prayers with you ..let us know when you go !!!
Broke Celiac student, that would be me. I picked up a gluten-free food bank package from my school, after a long chat about my allergies, and it was mostly those Uncle Ben's flavoured rice packets (every one contained wheat) and campbells tomato soup, second ingredient=wheat flour. I didn't have the heart to go back and ask for a trade, I'm sure they tried and I didn't want to seem ungrateful.
#1 weight-loss plan..become a student. Ugh.
Message me your address and i will send !!!! Glad 2 help another Celiac student AND fellow horse lover
I know there have been a couple people here who have said they're on a limited income, maybe one or a couple of them would be interested and you could work out a way to send it to them .
Do you know who they are??I wouldnt mind spending the $ to ship them even..I would be glad to I was once a broke college student with celiac,,when the others were happy and healthy living off Ramen noodles and fast food , i coulda used some donated food ! Well actually..i'm still broke, but now a broke person with a income lol
Thing that helped me was the "if ya cant kill it naked witha spear or pick it off a tree-DONT EAT IT" diet ! LOL..Nothing added, preservatives etc. Organic if u can..Def cut out soy(did the same thing to me), maybe dairy too.. I was a HUGE cereal lover before my dx, and got super excited about the gluten free cereals, but in my first few months had 2 cut them out, now i enjoy the Rice chex (choc kind kills me) and almond milk ! have to let those guts heal
Just pay extra extra close attention into what you eat and how you feel after Good luck, and your post was not TMI, if there was ever a site that you could speak free about your big "D" i believe this is it
p.s. Nice Arab !
I started off taking the wafer and the juice(baptist ya'll ! ) ..Because i wasnt really sure how i felt not being able to take the bread of the body.. But after I prayed about i realized, God allowed me to be a Celiac, right? Then do u honestly think he cares if I dont take the bread, that will make me sick for the rest of the day and the NEXT ! Think of all the people in nursing homes with feeding tubes etc, that cannot partake, God loves us all no matter what.. Its not like we are refusing to take part of communion , we are just taking care of the body HE GAVE US !!!
I usually take the bread, and pass it off to my husband to eat then pray over the wine Religion is much more than worrying about being able to eat the bread, it is about realizing how much God loves us, enough to sacrifice His Son, in order that WE may live, And to try and live the life He would want us to.. ...PLUS one day we will be able to take communion with HIM, and eat alllll the wheat with out worry
