Topics I've Started

Discrimination

09 June 2013 - 02:22 PM

Has anyone here ever been discriminated against for being gluten free. I feel as though everywhere I go whenever I mention my problem I sometimes get the rolling eyes in the back of the head treatment. I was even recently denied being able to bring in my own food to an event at an A's baseball game. Is this even legal? I am just disgusted and to the point where if someone says the wrong thing to me again and associates my disease with being a wimp it's going to take a lot not to deck them out. :angry:


Anybody In The Bay Area Or Nearby?

So I am looking to make new friends in the Santa Cruz/San Jose area or nearby who have celiac because I think it would be great for the moral support. I'm also looking for some single gluten free ladies in the area. Lol. Let me know who is in this area and it would be great to meet you.

Still Feeling Weird

02 August 2012 - 10:19 PM

Hey guys. So it has been 7 months going gluten free. I was just wondering, is it normal for me to be feeling still kind of out of it a lot and generally feel tired and unmotivated most of the time. I have certainly improved a lot but I still feel as if I am living in a dream and nothing around me is real. Also I seem to be suffering still from depression and anxiety related issues that I think are gluten caused. I have cut out all sources of gluten and am very careful about cross contamination. My stools still don't seem right and are pretty foul some days still even when I am certain that I have not ingested gluten. The rashes that really plagued me in the past which I think were dermatitis herpetiformis are completely gone for the most part now but the problem is none of my celiac tests were positive for it and the biopsy for dermatitis herpetiformis turned out negative as well. Also, I would get a burning sensation constantly around my eyes and severe anxiety/feeling like my head was about to explode feeling that has disappeared after going gluten free. I am very certain though I have celiac or at least a gluten senstivity as I have improved drastically from not ingesting this, although I have not recovered fully. I would say that I am maybe 70 percent of normal now. Also, my thyroid levels seem to have improved. Prior to going gluten free my TSH was at 3.67. After testing again 5 months gluten free that level has since gone down to 2.6. I just don't know why I continue to have my most troubling symptom though which is the depression and feeling like nothing around you is real. Has anyone had a similar experience and if so how long did it take to resolve? Is it normal for people to still have foul stool 7 months later? Again, I have been incredibly careful in what I eat, pretty much sticking to chicken, eggs, potatoes, beans, corn and a variety of vegetables. I have also cut out all dairy. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
