#755795 Just Diagnosed And Feel Like Its The End Of The World!

Posted by Kathy59 on 11 December 2011 - 02:38 PM

What I did when I was diagnosed was focus on what I could eat! It was several months before I tried any processed foods made gluten free. I ate all the vegetables, meats, and fruits I wanted. months later I tried my first gluten-free beer "Redbridge" It tasted sooooo good! Then I tried a gluten-free pizza from a local parlor in a very small town; however, the owner offered the gluten-free pizza because his daughter had Celiac. The pizza was awesome. It had been months. I purchased some gluten-free pasta, tried rice and corn and a pasta that was a mixture of rice/corn. I prefer the corn pasta, especially the spaghetti! It is better than the regular to me; feels like you are actually eating something of substance. I do prefer Bob's Red Mill mixes for everything. I found the pizza crust is enough to make 2 for my husband & I; make one for dinner and make another and freeze. Perfect for those nights you don't feel like cooking. I just ordered a bunch of stuff from (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned)...especially love a creamy tomato soup...just pour and heat! Very good, never thought I would say this, but better than Campbell's. Also, check ingredients at the store you will be surprised how much is naturally gluten-free. I have adjusted so well, I need to lose 20 lbs...a year and a half ago, I was 15 lbs underweight...I have other residual effects to my body, but I am sooo much better!

#607878 Anyone Unemployed Or Divorced Because Of Celiac?

Posted by Kathy59 on 29 April 2010 - 07:13 PM

I am sooo scared..I lost my job because I used up all my FMLA; was Dx with celiac a month later..I have unemployment benefits and looking for work. Having great anxiety about working..some days I feel really good..others, like today..very tired, flat and nerve pain with spasms driving me crazy. Am I ready for work? Sometimes, I feel like a full time job will help me break the depression; other days I think how can I possibly do it? I am physically sweating just typing this. Any input?
