Greetings, All. I hope this finds you well. I'm halfway into my 2nd year of my Celiac diagnosis. My story is much like yours. I was sick as a dog, dropping weight, and suffered with unrelenting bone pain and fatigue. I was fortunate enough (unlike some of you ) to cross paths with a GI doc who suspected Celiac from the start. From there, I struggled with depression and deprevation regarding the dietary restrictions, ate way too much rice, gained back the weight plus some in a place I NEVER had it before , and now have come to a (mostly) peaceful cooexistance with my body. I work hard to keep Celiac from being the defining feature of my life. I don't always succede, but I'm hoping I can share a bit of something from my life that encourages or educates or tickles one of you out there adrift in a similar boat.
