Topics I've Started

Venting

02 March 2011 - 08:55 PM

Hello,

I've been gluten free for three years, and no longer eat 'gluten free' food made on shared equipment/facilities. I'm pretty sensitive, which I learned the hard way in the beginning because I'd try things like grabbing a french fry off my boyfriend's hamburger plate and ending up bed ridden for one or more days. It feels somewhat like the flu, with chills, and joint swelling. Anyway, I'm mainly just venting, because its been three years and I still suffer from malabsorption, hypoglycemia, and anemia. Despite iron supplements and a high iron diet, I feel as if my fatigue is getting worse. My doctor just looks at me and says, "You're just sensitive." After years of fighting for some diagnosis, I sometimes feel like I'm at square one. Sometimes I feel like I'm going insane! I'm I supposed to live in a bubble?
