3 Years And Counting!

25 March 2014 - 06:17 AM

Today marks my 3 years since diagnosis! It's been quite the adventure, but I can now say that I am healed and my health has been awesome! I couldn't ask for better a doc who has guided me through it all. Hope you all have a great day!! :)

Glutened, Nightmares, Insomnia Oh My!

10 July 2013 - 04:20 PM

I got "glutened" in the last few days, usual symptoms but something new.....I can't sleep, and when I do it's disrupted by nightmares, sleep walking and a creepy crawly feeling. I've woken up sleep walking in the last couple days, wake up disturbed with nightmares, and then can't get back to sleep--I'll be wide awake for hours, like I've had mass amounts of caffeine at midnight! Going on day 4 with this, any ideas??? I'm exhausted all day, my body won't relax, this is all VERY new to me!! Help!

I Can't Believe That Just Happened......

I've been a Celiac (diagnosed) 2 yrs and haven't ever run into this scenario. A friend wanted to go to lunch, and chose the place with a supposed gluten-free menu that her gluten-free coworker eats at "all the time". The eatery was set up a lot like a subway sandwich shop, was not subway! As we all know, the workers at such places are quite possibly contaminating food left and right without any idea. So when I saw this and told my friend I didn't dare eat there, she was beyond mad and couldn't understand why her coworker eats there and I wouldn't.....she really didn't care to even listen to the reasoning of cross contamination and how some people are less sensitive or braver than others. Never mind the fact that this coworker could just be gluten intolerant and cheat at times?! Seriously??? Flipping seriously?! Ugh, I'm trying to let it go because we've been friends for our whole lives, but where in the H did this irrational thinking person come from?? This is definitely a first for me, So upset :(

Workout Causing Leg Cramps...

16 April 2013 - 07:17 PM

I try to stick to a pretty regimented exercise plan of running/biking and strength training 6 days a week. I recently went on vacation and slacked off, only walked twice everyday, rather than running. When I returned and began my routine again, I got severe leg/feet cramps that night. They've continued off and on for a week, but lessening in severity. I've tried extra water, made sure I got all my vitamins in, ate bananas and other healthy foods. Any ideas on this, and how I can prevent this in the future? Wondering how I could have avoided this scenario. :(
