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).

I struck out on TPN twice. First time = blood clot; second time = blood sugar issues; thus feeding tube!!

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

I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be e...
