Counseling?

Recommended Posts

Guest Norah022

I was in counseling through my college for my freshman and sophomore year for multiple reasons. I haven't done counseling. I am now a senior and was diagnosed with Celiac's in May and sense that counseling may be necessary again for certain aspects of my life that are directly related to Celiac's.

Has anyone ever gone into counseling after a Celiac's diagnosis? DId it help?

Yes, I am in my second year of college, and was diagnosed at the same time, and found myself very overwhelmed. I hadn't seen anyone in almost a year, but I found a counselor through the school, and I am feeling a lot better. I think it helps to have someone to talk to. I have also found that talking to people here, who understand what you're going through, is very helpful.

Good luck to you!!!

Change that first sentence to 'third' instead of second, and that is the exact same post I would have written.

also, look for a support group near you

I am in the middle of nowhere where no one has ever heard of Celiac's and have no mode of transportation to the bigger cities.

My dad has Celiac's but it is really hard to go to him and tell him that his daughter's eating disorder is back and she is depressed since he doesn't believe in the so-called psychology mumbo-jumbo.

That in itself is a good reason to see a counselor.

I know finding a support group is easier said than done. I'm still looking myself. Use what services you can until something better comes along.
