In Topic: Now What's My Problem?

06 July 2012 - 11:38 PM

Whether this problem is caused by physical or psychological factors or some combination of both, you do sound like you have a lot of stress to deal with. I hope you'll feel better once you're married but I'm not surprised you're so tired with all the different things you juggle. Is there a way your could make life easier or calmer? Even if this doesn't solve the problem you've described, being less stressed might make it easier to be with.

p.s. Have you tried taking milk of magnesia or other laxatives? MoM is very effective - best taken when you don't need to go out the next day! - but could help you avoid needing time off work.

In Topic: Celiacs & Stress: Is Recovery Possible?

21 April 2012 - 02:05 AM

Regarding stress and work - my advice would be to remember that you come first and your health is more important than your job. It's also crucial to make sure you have a good work/life balance - you need those hours away from work to recover and recharge. And try to find ways to leave the stress behind when you leave at the end of the day.

Good advice but hard to follow, I know - I struggle with the same problems. But stress does make my coeliac disease worse and I know it's important to try to give life as much priority as work.

In Topic: Possible Trip To London

p.s. Preparing your own food would definitely be cheaper - London is horribly expensive, sadly. Also, if you join the Leon and La Tasca mailing lists just before your visit, they may send you discount vouchers :)

In Topic: Possible Trip To London

I lived in London until recently. A short-term apartment might be good - alternatively, a breakfast only hotel might be ok too, if there is a fridge in your room for storing food.

For making food yourself, I would recommend Sainsbury's and M&S Food as supermarkets with good gluten labelling. There are lots of these around London.

For restaurants, I would recommend the following, which also have several locations in London:
- Leon (my favourite!)
- Wetherspoons
- La Tasca
- Cafe Rouge

I've also heard good things about an Italian place called Cotto (http://www.italiancotto.co.uk/) but I've not tried this myself.

If you're on Facebook, there are various UK coeliac groups who are very helpful, including Gluten Free Guerillas.

Hope your trip is useful and that your pain improves soon.

All the best,


In Topic: Hashimoto's

I'm sorry to hear that. I understood that cognitive problems are a part of Hashimoto's and they are my biggest problem at present - you have my sympathy.
