so i'm very new to the whole blogging world... i'm a bit hesitant b/c although i was diagnosed with celiac almost a year ago, i feel very much like i still don't know what i'm doing!
it's like when you're sitting in a classroom and the teacher asks if there are any questions but you're so lost, you can't even begin to formulate a question... that's kinda where i'm at!
i have so many things i would love to get info on - maybe if i kinda bullet them out it would help organize my own thoughts...
- what is a "normal" celiac diet
i am an extremely picky eater and so my daily routine includes snacking on junk until dinner and then i
make some form of chicken and rice or chicken and noodles (i will say that i make a mean gluten-free carrot cake!)
during the day is when i really miss my bagels and quick lunches!
- when will i feel comfortable eating out again?
i am so hesitant to eat out! the only time i've tried was right after my diagnosis - we went to a place that
has a gluten-free menu... i explained my situation, and i still got sick! ever since then, if i have to go out, i bring my
own meal (again, chicken and rice or chicken and noodles!)
this is the big one for me. i have had stomach issues my whole life, but after the birth of my daughter is
when things got really bad. i finally saw a wonderful doc who didn't dismiss me with ibs - and she had me
tested for celiac... i came back positive and was confirmed with the endoscopy.
i guess that leads me to my question... is there anything i should be extra worried about if i wanted to get
pregnant again? (which i do!)
i had a relatively easy pregnancy with my daughter, but she was born via c-section (not sure if that matters) so i will have to have another c-section if i do have more kids...
i could probably go on forever as to my concerns - especially b/c i don't know how to eat a balanced diet
without my "old staples" (the aforementioned bagels! etc)
anyways, i'm sorry this is such a long blog! as you can tell, i'm a bit confused! i welcome any advice or insight! thanks for listening (or reading i guess!)
