"Anyone successfully find happiness with this? I'm failing miserably at it."
Like others, have mentioned it will take time to adjust (I'm still adjusting). It's a pain, yes. Not meaning to impose my beliefs on you and I don't know where you stand with regards to faith. But honestly for me, because of my relationship with Jesus Christ, I can still choose joy, even with this dumb disease. I've come to the conclusion that without Him, this life is just not worth living. He's the only reason I can live to face tomorrow, along with all of the challenges living with celiac presents (and that's a lot!). Message me if you'd like to hear more - I would love to share.
WOW! Not only am I thankful to hear from you and welcoming me here, but to hear you share your faith without shame. How refreshing...I couldn't agree more about the hope we have through Christ even when it doesn't seem worth fighting anymore. HE makes it possible. One of my favorite verses is, Psalm 18:32 It is God that girdeth me with strength and maketh my way perfect. Very appropriate based on what you posted. Thanks. There also a song, "Because He Lives I can face tomorrow" your post reminded me of that song. Thankful!!!!
