Recovery Happens. Believe It!

02 October 2014 - 05:00 PM

In 2 months I will have been strict gluten free for 3 years. I have dermatitis herpetiformis, the skin presentation of celiac disease (for those of you who don't know me). 

 

I have good news to report. I am 5'1" and celiac disease had me down to 93 (at times 90) pounds. After going gluten free I would weigh myself & get depressed that I was not gaining weight. This went on for literally years. I did know not to expect much the first year so I wasn't that concerned & it didn't bum me out too much during that first year. By the end of year 2 though, it was getting pretty depressing every time I stepped on the scale & I hadn't gained anything. I got tired of seeing the same thing every time I stepped on the scale so I just quit weighing myself. Just about the last month or two, I noticed my jeans felt a bit tighter than they had been. I screwed up my courage the other day & stepped on the scale. 103. I thought it was an apparition. I Have weighed myself every day for 4 days & it always turns up 103! It's REAL!!!!!! FINALLY, FINALLY!!!!!!!

Ha,ha,ha,ha,ha! If this keeps up, I'm going to have to get a new wardrobe because of weight gain for the very first time in my life (I'm 57)! :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

 

Also, my bp had been steadily inching up in the years before I found out I have celiac disease. Well folks, my blood pressure is now back to so normal there probably aren't many people in the world who have such normal bp. 

 

I've told you the things that can be measured. The other things like fatigue & gas, bloat, migraines, depression, etc., etc., etc...... have all resolved.

 

I do still have the rash. It is a billion times improved but I still get itchies here & there; rarely ever blisters any more. This is a humongous improvement. Those who know me, know what I'm talking about. I had the rash bad. It's just going to be a long time for me before I'm completely free of any vestige of the rash but I can certainly live with the state of it now. 

 

I have been reading in this forum thread after thread where you "newbies" are chomping at the bit for permanent improvement. I wanted to post this to let you know it really & truly WILL happen for you but it is not something that happens in mere months, nor in 6 months, nor in a year necessarily but it WILL happen. Some take longer than others. Just stay the course and know that one day it will be YOUR day to write a post like this.
