In Topic: New To Board

I am horrified too of being sick - but I can assure you that either way you have your endoscopy, make sure they numb your throat really well - asking for more if you can still feel yourself swallow, and of course let them know you are afraid of being sick! Once you have swallowed some of the stuff will go down and once it hits your stomach you will want to just lay down anyway - so dont worry after that its almost over! I am 27 and I was shaking from head to foot when I went in - so much so I almost passed out - but now I know its not that bad...hope that helps! And its better that you know either way as you have the rest of your life ahead of you feeling amazing!!!

hello there - yeah quite simply if I eat - I have to lay down - its not suitable for us parents is it!!! Yeah I think the same - its your bodys way of letting you know that its not well after the food and that it needs to rest!!

Do you know what the best thing you can do right now is???? Get all this printed off and make him sit and read it through...even if its gonna end at least he will feel guilty about it for rest of his dayz!!! I mean how contradicting is that?? You can be cured and he cant - he really should be more understanding! Do what you have to to make yourself happy - at the end of day no one can tell you what to do - only advise! Get yourself better and you will find that you probably will enjoy being yourself so much that non of it will seem so bad! I have and im getting better slowly and Im glad I can start a fresh life without a man who doesnt love me coz I had celiac - its happened to me too - only we didnt know it was celiac! Just thought I was a looney with a depression and eating disorder!!!


In Topic: Ate Gluten By Mistake

04 May 2005 - 01:49 AM

Its fine to rant - I do too! I have had this thing for over 6 years - if Im not mistaken may have had it while I was growing up but last 3 years have been dreadful! I have only been gluten-free for 5 days and feel amazing but last night I had an accident - and I am sick today and cant go out of the house at all - you feel like kicking yourself dont you? its prob not as bad as yours sounds but still it takes over you life! I would never touch gluten again no matter what any doctor saya - even the smell of once loved bread makes me heave! And ive only been gluten-free for 5 days!! unbelievable isnt it! Im glad to hear that you got to go on a trip tho - you can do it again, for sure!!!!! Take care

Hy carla - listen you are not alone in this!!!!!!!!!! I am the same - every day is a struggle for me and have only been gluten-free for 5 days and already seeing an amazing improvement!! If I were you If the doctors will not listen - get as much advice and knowledge as you can - and treat yourself - note everything that makes you feel bad - including drinks and supplements. I was taking pill after pill to make me feel better - luckily my doctors are great here in the uk (we pay our taxes to they should be!) and they wont stop till they find out whats wrong.
I have been there too - I am still underweight and I thought I had anorexia as I got scared to eat anything as Id rather be hungry than in pain! its really awful and its not in your head! We are not hyperchondriacs at all - althought this thing does make you a bit self absorbed, its not in your head.... I hope you feel better soon love and that you find some variety in your diet. Can you have yoghurts as these are great for calcium and will help your weight - they are usually easy to digest.
