I think that's just how all normal girls/women feel sometimes. I know I do here and there. It's not fun but it passes.

I feel it every day, sweetie!! It's okay though ... it's better to be healthy. Once you start feeling different, you won't worry so much about being different. ;)

I think everyone is different in some way. Sometimes it's health problems, sometimes it's family problems, sometimes it's difficulties with school and learning, sometimes it's troubles making friends. Even in the same family, different people go through different things.

You definitely have some talents and abilities that also make you different and make you able to do things that noone else can. It helps to find those. If you're still struggling with these feelings for more than a couple weeks, talk to someone - someone in your family, a family friend, a teacher or a school counsellor.

I think everyone feels like this at times but for some of us celiacs those feelings can really be more intense. How long have you been gluten free? If it hasn't been very long these feelings may get less strong and less frequent after a while. I know my DS and I are doing better. What do you do to relieve some of the stress these feelings create? For my DS something like karate helped, for me slapping around some natural clay worked better. I also found dancing in my room by myself helped too. :ph34r: Everyone is different though and what relieves you might be a long hot shower or a brisk walk. When it feels like your going to explode you need to find something to release the pressure. If you live in the country going into a field and just screaming your lungs out can work too, in the city that could test your local police response :blink: . I hope you find something that works for you.

Hi Chloe,

Sorry you're feeling a little upset! But it's okay - remember all the wonderful things that you can still do, and the feeling will go away.

It happens to all of us. I was having a discussion with mom the other day about this - how easy it is to not have to think all the time (about eating, or if you might feel sick)... And how some people don't need to think all the time, like we do.

But that ends up being wonderful, as we then don't take anything for granted, and we are so grateful for what we have.

Keep your head up!

I think it's important to remember that it's okay to feel that way sometimes...and whether they admitt it or not, pretty much every other girl on Earth can probably relate....

I think most of us have gone through that more than once, and probably it will pop up again every now and then. However ... I have a thought for you.

Somewhere in this forum there was a thread going around that said all the Celiac people look younger than their age...and... I do believe there was even a post saying that Celiac women were hot!

Just keep that in mind when you're looking at someone else thinking how lucky they are ... who knows, maybe all that gluten will be aging them quicker :D

I have my emotional ups and downs as well too. But, being different is good. In my eyes, being predictable is not good enough. Having different attributes builds up the little pieces that makes you something unique and not the same uniformed-copy of someone/something else. I know it gets old and stale even people come up and say "I'd die without bread!" and whatnot, but, just be positive and eventually it becomes easier and it the awakardness seems to fade.

If you need anything, just to talk, anything, give me a PM! :)

i have similar problems too but ive been diagnosed with celiac for almost five years now. i sometimes look at myself and just think FREAK. i think that everything would be ok if i didnt have celiac. that i would be a NORMAL teen, and i wouldnt have to explain things to people. I recently went on a week long trip to London, and the whole meal was ok, we had prearranged all the meals, but when the waiter started passing out the dessert, the kid next to me, (who i didnt know) kept pushing me to take it "come on whats wrong with you, why dont you want the brownie? its good, try some" i flipped out on him and just yelled "you dont even know me, leave me the **** alone!!!" i felt bad, but i really hate eating with strangers. that was the last meal i ate with somebody not in my group...

It can be really hard sometimes, but you'll get through it! when i start feeling down, i remind myself of how lucky i am to KNOW that i have a gluten problem, unlike 97% of celiacs. we're lucky that our disease is 100% treatable, and since yours was caught early, you're probably in good shape :) we're also lucky to have so many gluten-free options that didn't exist a 10 years ago. that's how i cope. it will get better! and as you get older, you don't care as much about being different.

Here's what I think -I'm not allowed to have a lot of the unhealthy things, so I'm actually a lot healthier than anybody who doesn't have diet restrictions.

You know, I get that when I eat gluten.

I'll be like totally fine one minute then the next I start crying.

Like where the simplest things just are such a big deal.

For me that went away when I gave up the gluten.

Mine was so bad that ending my life was once an option.

Things always seemed harder than they were.

I taped up a sign on my mirror, "It's the gluten" is what it says; to remind me that its why I'm feeling the way I am.

So like if I accidentally get glutened, it's a reminder.
