In Topic: "celiac Attack"

06 May 2013 - 09:30 AM

I really appreciate the feed back. It's super great to know I am not alone in this boat.  Having Celiac in the first place is a nightmare, but when I am contaiminated, I get so bad All I want to do it hide and never leave the house,.  Its tough. My emotions are so bad.  The fog is a good way to describe it. I feel dumb, and am easily confused and cant seem to handle things as well as I can when all is well.  Depression, and just plain irritaed at everything and everyon. 

 

THANK YOU!

In Topic: Family Members Treat Me Weird...

Well thats just sad lol I found it hard at first to attend dinner parties at friends or family. I just decided I wouldnt go and if I had to ,I ate before I went so I could just nibble. However,  being at a dinner party and not eating, you get the looks from people.  Why are you eating, is the food not good enough for you. It puts the spotlight on you, and I hate the spotlight.  I really just prefer not going. lol  My grandma was horrible. (I wont go into details) but she died from cancer of the gut, so I am convinced she had it.  It comes from her side. Many of her kids have it (not my dad, his Thyroid is toast though)

I am glad there is a place to come to, even after 8 years, I still learn so much. 

 

HUGS LadyK and the rest of you.

In Topic: Not Sure If My Symptoms Are Celiac Or Gluten Intolerance

01 May 2013 - 03:35 PM

Hi Lovechild-

Doctors dont take it as seriously as they should. My Dr. at the time said you most likely didnt have it. I asked for the test when my aunt came to me as said 4 aunts have it, an several cousins. Turned out, I did.  I recommend being persistant its your heath. In the mean time go gluten free, it wont hurt you.  Do it long enough....may take some time to see a real difference. I am not to sure about some of the symptoms, like high iron, usally its lower with Celiac (anemia and all) and lhigh b12...your are vitamin deficient with Celiac.  it can be super frusterating when your not well and you cannot understand why. I felt the same.  I cam here all those years back and it helped me so much.  GOOD LUCK!

In Topic: So Fed Up

I had it for so long before being diagnosed.  I was a mess growing up and untill I finally found out was was the issue. My Dad does not take it serious at all (Even though its HIS side of the family it comes from) mom still makes me feel bad for being so "bad" all those years.  If I eat there or go out, they forget. And then I feel like crap because I am sitting and not eating.  Dealing with people and their "nit getting it" is the hard part for me.  I hate the "Oh so you cant eat bread? " Oh, if that was all it was. *sigh* LOL
