#877310 Have You Been Told It Is All In Your Head?

Posted by GwenO on 29 June 2013 - 11:00 AM

Bah.  I've had issues my whole life.  My doctor told my mom when I was little that I had "stress" issues.  My daughter was diagnosed celiac a year ago.  I tested negative.  I've gone gluten-free with her (with the odd slip).  I feel a whole lot better, but I have to be very careful.  They found that there is "visible damage" where my large and small intestine meet - they do not know why.  But it was a relief to find a doc who took me seriously, looked into it, and found something.  I work in a hospital, and I am appalled at times by the way some docs treat their patients.

#873365 My Test Came Back

Posted by GwenO on 08 June 2013 - 12:28 PM

My daughter is a celiac, I tested negative - twice.  I quit gluten anyway - mostly to support her at first, but I feel so much better.  Last week I had a plate of gluten pasta that someone offered me - looked good, I was hungry - poor choice because it made me quite ill for a few days.  So I'm just going with it!

#851861 Let's Be Trendy!

Posted by GwenO on 02 February 2013 - 01:31 PM

I went gluten free in support of my daughter, who was diagnosed with celiac disease last summer. I tested negative, however, I feel a lot better - it's changed my life. I, of course, do understand the implications of ingesting small amounts of gluten for some people. I'm grateful for the trendiness, feeding an almost twelve year old is much easier because of it.
