#905972 I'm In Control!

Posted by on 14 February 2014 - 10:59 AM

One year check-up today. The results are...normal bloodwork and significant healing in the intestines and esophagus! Something new too...villi was present! I'll get the biopsy report in 2 weeks but this girls kicking celiac butt!

If you're new to celiac or struggling you WILL get better. I'm not looking for 100% but a year makes a huge difference. I still have bad days, trials, and tribulations but that goes with autoimmune disease. Everyone remember we can control this.

#883261 Any Tips On Controlling Anxiety And Depression?

Posted by on 06 August 2013 - 06:00 PM

Exercise is the best medicine for me. I had a very bad neurological response to anxiety/depression meds so I stay away from medicinal treatment. I control mine through diet, exercise, and natural light.

#880166 Pretty Sure Im Slowing Dying. - Past Gluten Free

Posted by on 18 July 2013 - 06:09 PM

I've been gluten free since Feb. and have had similar experiences. They say it's withdraw but I am also Deficient in iron and other vitamins. When the iron levels started improving I started getting more energy. I'll be doing great and then it hits me again. Sadly, it's a process. Hang in there and listen to your body. Also, have they checked your adrenals?

#874816 Celiac Equals A Lonely Life

Posted by on 15 June 2013 - 06:45 PM

I'm trying to battle my depression with diet and exercise since medications caused me severe neurological problems. However, the Celiac isolation is making it so hard to combat the blues. I just learned I wasn't invited to family function because they didn't want to worry about my diet (even though I bring my own). This seems to be the trend. My friends don't have me over anymore and now my family is excluding me. This disease is so hard mentally.

#862102 Celiac Vs. Gluten Intolerance

Posted by on 05 April 2013 - 06:41 PM

I do think it's silly that these division lines exist. We've all been there when we know there is something wrong with our body and a stranger tells you how you really feel. No one knows your body like you do. I also feel that now I do have a label everything will be contributed to Celiac Disease. Instead of trying to investigate other causes for certain symptoms. Most of the information I've received for living a gluten free lifestyle has come from gluten intolerant's, and I appreciate the help, advice, and support.

Remember the old Dr. Joke.
Patient: "dr. My arm hurts when I move it this way."
Dr.: " Then don't move it that way."

If gluten hurts you, don't eat it!

#860379 Just Diagnosed....not Really Sure What To Do Now.

Posted by on 24 March 2013 - 02:27 PM

I would be willing to bet that most of us have had a meltdown in the middle of a grocery aisle.  And then, you will get angry and then you will learn to deal with the cards you have been delt.  And soon, once you feel better, you will realize that it's not so bad after all. ;)
It's a process.  It takes time and much is trial and error.  But, in the end, it's the road to good health.

I smiled when I read this. My first trip to the grocery store after diagnosis ended in tears in the tea section. I had my list and thought I was ready, but I suddenly got overwhelmed by all the labels. I'm newly diagnosed and have been gluten free for a month. My grocery trips have improved.
