Hi...I read posts on here regularly, but I haven't been writing on here in a while because I have been doing really great after such a long struggle. I was diagnosed Celiac by biopsy in Fall of 2011...really sick. Well, I have been spending the past almost 2 years healing...ups & downs...but so thankful to be heading up more than down.
I finally felt well enough to start looking for part time work(my hubby works & we have 4 school age kiddos). Our medical bills are so crazy from the period of time I was so sick, & I want/need to help out financially.
I took a wonderful job a couple weeks ago that I begin tomorrow & my symptoms have absolutely returned. I am so frustrated. In my head, I'm sure this is completely anxiety kicking in...something I havent dealt much with but seems to be magnified in this new Celiac body of mine. I've lost 7lbs in the past week, I get sick every time I eat, mornings are now my worst time, & I think I am panicking because I don't want to end up in the hospital again.
I just need some encouragement & advice from some of you that have lived with Celiac Disease longer than me. Is there anything you take to calm down your insides? Is anxiety another angle of Celiac Disease that I have to get a grip on...if so, how do you deal?
Sometimes I feel like I have conquered living with Celiac Disease...other times I feel like the disease is kicking my butt!
Thanks for listening...
