yea just feel defeated today. So many sensitivities is scary, and somehow isolating. I'm not even going to ask whats next. I'm on my own and would like to date but can't hardly even eat out without exposure at this point. does anybody have positive experiences with new people in their lives who can tolerate health issues and celiac. I'm not feeling energetic and not able to eat anything except sauce free veggies, fruit and meat. And I am broke from buying special food and supplements. So I can't offer altenative dates that cost money. Now I can't have anything with milk or butter or cheese in addition to wheat corn, rice, beans, soy and all the gluten free stuff i react to as well. i even react to potato starch. and all that other alternative grain, except quinoa. I'll adjust. I just want to scream stop. tomorrow will be betterI need to change the way i am thinking about this. If i think about it all as temporary It is managable. Has anyone out there heard of people being able to reclaim foods, or recover at all. i have been able to reverse the related problems but no head way on the foods. Maybe I've had this underlying milk thing all long and that's why I don't get better. Maybe it is good I know about it now and this will be the start of something better. thanks for listening to the rant. I'm ready to try anything, I'm calling my minister and setting up therapy. I'm a therapist and sometimes people heal from physical issues once they work out mental stuff.

Hey has anyone else heard anythng about their hypothalamus being depleated(by alternative medicine testing). So for people who have been malnurished, as I was as a kid, the hypothalmus can be depleted. the hypothalamus and the thyroid have alot to do with operating the Liver, and isn't it the liver that breaks down, or in this case fails to break down the protein chains. Well anyway my hypothalmus is beingsupplemented now and I do feel some better. Hypothalamus can be at fault in depression and ocd, maybe anxiety too, not sure. well, its a new one for me.

First off ((((((hugs))))) you are not alone a lot of us struggle but as one who does I know that knowledge is little comfort.

I can only answer from my experience with other intolerances. When I was diagnosed I was not able to tolerate any dairy at all. It took about 6 months dairy free and a very cautious reintroduction of milk products starting with yogert and hard cheeses but I am now able to tolerate milk quite well. If you have an actual casein intolerance that may not be the case for you but for many of us dairy can make a reappearence.

One thing that I learned the hard way was not to overdo any particular food group. When I went gluten-free I started consuming a lot of nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant). I ate them at almost every meal. Within a short time I started to react to them also. I had to eliminate them completely for a few months but now I can eat that family a couple times a week with no problems. I did the same thing to myself with soy not too long ago, I wanted to gain some weight so I started doing supplement shakes 3 times a day, knew it wasn't wise but did it any way and now I am paying for that. :angry::(

The healing process takes what seems like a very long time but when you consider how long it took for us to get sick enough to have celiac be found it makes sense that healing would take a while. I have gone back to eating just meats, fruits, veggies with little processed food it is a eating style that takes some getting used to but for me the inconvience is worth the trade off for good health.

If you are fortunate enough to have any celiac support groups near you perhaps joining might help, but if like me you are not near to one this board is a good substitute. I hope you feel better soon, both emotionally and physically, hang in there your not alone.

Ravenwoodglass,

thanks for your response. We are on the same page about the support group. I just need some sympathy sometimes, and people who aren't experiencing it really can't get it. So thank you. Even just reading through the posts on here makes me feel not so alone. I'm reading up on all this stuff and that makes me feel some better as well. I really do appreciate your kind words. Thnx
