I Give Up On Eating.

Recommended Posts

Margret is absolutely right about the college issue, but I would go to the college first. When my DD went to college they put her in senior housing in a private room with a small kitchenette even though she was a freshman because that was the only way to accomadate her needs. If you are in college the first thing I would do is talk to your advisor and the folks who set up your housing. They can and will help. We also got refunded the money for the meal plan as they could not safely feed her.

Okay, I do agree...

If you can take care of it with your RA's/RD's in quick order, absolutely. If it takes you months-years to go through the proper channels, then no...no...cross them off quickly. Food is good. I've seen too many folks caught up in too much time to be patient about this.

I moved off campus this year, but didn't know I had celiac disease. My room mates not only don't care about my situation but keep putting brownies, pizza, donuts, sandwiches in my face. They think it is a total joke. Our landlord wont let me back out of the lease.

:) Hi--I was where you are not too long ago and had to pull myself together and attack this whole thing like I was fighting a battle--and it is a war, I know. Start from the beginning, keep a food journal and go to basics like white rice, bananas, plain meats. As you add new foods, wait a few days, record your symptoms, and you will find what is giving you problems. Get a good probiotic that is gluten-free,sf,df and take it every day. There is HOPE--don't give up! It is worth the effort for the reward of feeling good! Check out the thread "Potatoes are the problem" too, and see if maybe there are any problems you have with the nightshades or high oxalate foods. Keep strong and take care. Robbin

Oh Ali, I am so sorry about your roomies, that is awful. you really do not need that. I could not come up there or I would be giving those jerks a piece of my mind - but hey wait a few years, their ignorance will cost them... do not think that all that gluten is not killing them - although they may not look like it... Would your mom be willing to visit & give her opinion... I am serious I would lose my cool... Please do not think that the roomies are friends they are not - they are immature morons... for people like that you need to avoid them as much as possible...

I think you just need some cooking lessons - we can all help you. All you need is a board across two crates - heck I cooked on that for a year when I was between kitchen cabinets.

It would be perfect for you to have a crock pot, a rice cooker & an electric skillet, & with the toaster - you are set. You cannot survive without cooking for yourself - period. I forget do you have a refrig in your room? I think you have the offer of a crock pot - just PM her your addy. I just got back from Austin, but if you need me to help you with an electric skillet, I will be happy to do that. that stuff is so cheap at Target or Walmart. If your mom has one - do not use it if it is a non-stick as it could have CC... really you can cook almost everything you need in a crockpot...

I have a celiac school teacher friend in the area, I will email her to see her exact location & if she knows anyone at the Lubbock group. Have you talked to francis in Austin, remember I gave you her phone number... I think my group leader is on vacation, but I will email her about Lubbock. I don't have anything to do, guess I could start driving up there weekends & start a new group :o

in the meantime eat some applesauce & your turkey on corn tortillas & a peeled apple & a banana, close the door to your room & make a mean face to the roomies

did your brothers get tested? has your mom read any of the books - Is she behind you offering support???

when I was in college, and wanted to cook my own meal (before I was celiac) but wanted to use good cookware, I got a farberware electric skillet. I'd run a cord out to the dorm courtyard, and cook outside. :) worked great, and you can cook almost anything in that thing.

    The doctor did 8 biopsy from the top of my throat to the bottom of my stomach....he thought I had H-Hyploi..but I did not. I am beginning to think they are missing my issues. He gave me some pump inhibitors, that's it. I have an appt. with...
    Your doctor would run a blood tests (ask for full celiac panel) and then confirm with endoscopy and biopsy celiac doesn't always show up on endoscopy and sometimes the biopsy is what confirms.  
    How is one tested for Celiac Disease? I have had several endoscopes and the lower part too and none of the doctors have said anything about it. I have BIG issues with bloating, severe pain in my upper chest (under the chest bone), at times...
