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

Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful.

Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American wom...

You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times. That'...

That is a good choice. That way you can have an official diagnosis. I regret not getting a blood test as it would have made explaining things to people around me a lot simpler. It is common for family members and other people not to understand celiac disease and to think that it is a eatin...
