Everlasting Hope

As I have been struggling with health issues for nearly 6 years, I have lost and gained hope so many different times.
My chronic states of malnutrition and starvation have taken quite a toll on my body. I suffer from chronic pancreatitis, a heart condition that leaves me with dangerously LOW blood pressure and a likeliness of fainting, my adrenal glands are insufficient, my liver damaged and my thyroid underactive. Through it all I have had several extended hospitalizations,

depression and hope. So many doctors and non-traditionals have made me promises. However, it is the promise one makes to oneself that is most important. Mine, "Don't lose Hope!" Even during the worst of days when I would not be able to get out of bed and wanted it all to just end, I truly never lost hope! I am here to tell you that it is soooo important you hold on. Because, one day when you're not even looking and hardly paying attention, something will come to you and change your life.

As always, Celiac.com welcomes your comments (see below).

deb-
sorry, It took so long to reply, but was sick and didn't read until now but have been to sick to reply .
wow, it sounds like me, but I am eating now-I would say that I gained weight but I just found out I have an under active thyroid - just started the meds today and go for sonogram on throat next week.
Think positive things will get better- thank god for my husband.
I started w/ Dr. Green but felt like a test tube great doctor though- now see someone at Mt. Sinai and Boston Beth Isreal They have a big celiac program.Dr. Kelly-you may want to check him or Dr. Green out.
I wish you only the best.
Michelle

Well thanks everyone seriously. I'm sure this will get better and I'm thankful this reaction is normal. So guilty when I think of others worse off than me. I will read and read and read until I've taught myself to feel better. And then help others ((((hugs all around)))

I'm curious to hear updates on your EC condition. Thanks

@Larkie how are you lips doing now? Have you found something that worked for you yet? I'm curious and eager for updates from anyone who overcame this condition. Thanks

The fullness of the Eucharist is found in the wine alone. However, glutenfreewatchdog did an article on the low gluten hosts recently. She tested a single host from the Benedictine sisters and found it to contain 0.0017 mg of gluten. Compare that to the 0.57mg found in a piece of gluten free brea...

You make me want to go to Montreal just to get croissants. I love a warm croissant with ham and swiss, melted, then lettuce, tomato and honey dijon mustard. Yum! I hear Schar sells croissants now. Will have to try once I get better.
