In Topic: Family Doesn't Seem To Care Much

25 October 2012 - 06:21 PM

Everyone hates when someone +1 ups your concerns or issues with an: " I completely understand why you feel that way." Most of the time, people have no clue. I think I might be able to relate - in some sense - to the pain you might be going through; aside from your daily symptoms.

My family refuses to believe that there is anything wrong with me; apparently I am totally making up the fact that I suffer - like all of us do - from a myriad of symptoms. The funny thing is: I don't think they'd care either way and would find any opportunity to downplay my daily pain. In this process I have suffered financially. I lost my job and my condo; I am unemployed and living out of my car. I am going to get back into school somehow - I'd give anything to go right now, if finances weren't as bad as they are.

The only way to get through the: family NOT caring or showing the least bit of consideration part - is to stop caring what they think; and stop trying to sell them on how horrible this condition is. I had to do this for my own sanity. Either way, they see me as a lazy person. I don't care what anyone thinks anymore. I'm tired of arguing and fighting, when that energy could be focused on recovery. :)

As unsupportive the following statement may seem - It's refreshing to hear of someone battling the same issues; mainly due to the fact that I can relate to you.

I am 29 years old and have been dealing with hair color change - as one of the myriad of celiac symptoms. I noticed a change in the tint of my facial hair color 5 years ago. I have dark brown hair normally however one day I

In Topic: "it's No Big Deal"

Agree with bartfull on this one. I had a doctor literally laugh at me for demanding a celiac blood panel. He said: "You're too fat to have celiacs; do you even know what celiacs is?"

Had I not been energy deprived - there would have literally been a physical a** whooping served to his pretentious/condescending a**. I wanted him to feel every ounce of pain that I felt over the years of being misdiagnosed.

If he/she doesn't take you seriously, fire him - no questions asked! Don't be afraid to tell him/her why you're severing them as your health care provider.
