#911167 The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Posted by Celiac Mindwarp on 02 April 2014 - 11:36 AM

Wow, I choose major surgery time to pop back in!

 

I hope you are both doing well, being looked after, taking one day at a time :) .

 

I just posted on the histamine thinger elsewhere (OK, OK, I can't remember which thread I put it in) but it looks like I should have come straight here.

 

All good this side of the pond, can't believe I am still a working girl 30 hours plus study a week.

 

Feels like I was never away B) :lol: :P ;)  (I even missed these little guys)

Wheat bran is not safe for celiacs, simple.

#882891 Oh, My Aching Feet---Are Gone

Posted by Celiac Mindwarp on 04 August 2013 - 02:13 PM

My dreadful plantar fasciitis vanished within weeks of going gluten-free, and reappears if I get glutened. Isn't it great when you don't notice things are better, then suddenly realize? I noticed last week that my jaw doesn't click anymore. Great!!!

#880875 Help! Glutened And Still Suffering After Three Weeks

Posted by Celiac Mindwarp on 24 July 2013 - 01:47 AM

I like acupuncture too, but I personally wouldn't want to rely solely on that for diagnosis for something as serious as thyroid etc.

Just my opinion :-)

Cocoa is an annoying one :(

Good luck

Sounds like time to check in with your doctor then, probably OK, but maybe not worth risking

#880333 Holy Molybdenum Batman. Eating Out gluten-free Is Hard

Posted by Celiac Mindwarp on 20 July 2013 - 08:28 AM

Hey there rene
I am nearly 12 months in to gluten-free now, and still find myself standing in the supermarket saying
(to no one in particular) things like 'potato chips? Why do you need gluten to make potato chips??

I haven't eaten out much, as I have found it a mine field when I CAN read the ingredients, let alone when I have to depend on staff to tell me what is safe. I do have a few other intolerances to go along with the gluten though...

Sounds like you are well on the way to getting your head round things, and learning each time. I guess we all just have to keep asking the questions.

Good luck on your next foray into the gluteny world :)

More good days than bad is VERY good news.

I now notice if I have a bad day, because it happens infrequently. 10.5 months gluten-free.

Keep it up, we are here cheering you on :)

#879466 Macular Pucker

Posted by Celiac Mindwarp on 14 July 2013 - 01:53 PM

I had a detached retina, which was half off the macular. I had a piece of plastic put in my eye to push it back together, and several holes in bo retinas fixed.

My eye surgeons were amazing, and I kept maybe 80 to 90 % of my sight.

Good luck, stuff with eyes always seems scary, be interested to know how it goes

This, plus cats doing stupid stuff, is, IMHO, exactly what all this technology is all really for.

#874956 Celiac Equals A Lonely Life

Posted by Celiac Mindwarp on 16 June 2013 - 11:43 PM

I am very happy, and have a wonderful life, full of great friends. I have a great social life, and lots of energy to run about with my kids. We are forever having people over to lunch or dinner, or going out to picnics.

Before diagnosis and a gluten-free diet this wasn't true, and life was challenging. You couldn't pay me to go back to my life before, even with all the extra planning, and initial awkwardness while everyone gets used to a new way of doing things.

I don't dismiss how hard it is to start with, but with a positive attitude, and lots of research it can be done.

I am still relatively new, gluten-free since September 12, other eliminations since January 13.

I hope others can make it work too :)

#874865 Celiac Equals A Lonely Life

Posted by Celiac Mindwarp on 16 June 2013 - 07:45 AM

Hey there
Sorry you are having such a tough time with this, I know it is even harder through depression. I don't know how long you have been on a gluten-free diet, but I know my mental health has improved massively since September 12, and more so since January when I discovered other food intolerances.

I lost a load of friends before diagnosed ncgi, I was pretty unwell for several years. I have found that being as matter of fact as I can about the diet works best. I try not to talk about it too much, I will say a few lines if asked and say something like I am here to see you guys, what have you been up to? to try and deflect. I take my own food everywhere, and invite people to mine more often than I used to. Having them home and feeding them 'normal' gluten-free food like a roast and potatoes, or a risotto shows them it doesn't have to be weird or gourmet. Killer dessert helps.

I would have a quiet, non confrontational word. Maybe suggest something you can do 'come to mine' 'let's go for a picnic' etc.

The truth is, you will have to be the one to make an effort. I come here when I need to moan, my family is very supportive, but even they don't want to hear about it all the time.

I took inspiration from the folks here who are determined not to let this disease take any more of their lives.

You might be upset, but my guess is that if you can go to them with something positive, they will likely be positive back. I think I may be a bit like an enthusiastic puppy, but I get a lot more invitations now.

Let us know how you get on, keep talking to us :)

#874523 Infertility

Posted by Celiac Mindwarp on 13 June 2013 - 11:25 PM

From what I understand from what you are saying, you WILL need to use contraception. There are things other than the pill.

If a celiac is eating a gluten free diet, they have around an average chance of successfully having children. Eating gluten will not neccessarily stop you getting pregnant. Recurrent miscarriage can be a symptom if celiac is untreated.

FWIW I swore I didn't want children when I was in my 20s but am a very happy Mum now.

Not assuming you are an idiot, just giving the information I have :)
