Good News

So many many of you know about my depression and my lack of support and my diminishing will for this life. BUT, I found a friend in one of my nutrition classes that has Celiac Disease.

FINALLY a real life friend in this small college town. Not only does she have celiac disease but she has had it all her life and loves to bake and cook so I really think this will be a good turn around for me.

I am so happy to have found a friend that I can actually meet up with, who can teach me how to bake and cook and I am very hopeful that having her makes this life easier.

I know I had a lot of people concerned and I even had myself concerned, but now I want everyone to know I have started my support system.

That's great news. Thank you for letting us know how you are doing. I was worried and have been praying for you.

Keep an eye on that depression. It has a nasty way of hanging around. Don't be afraid to seek help even if it's not "that bad" and don't let it rob you of the joys in life.

That is fantastic!

It sounds like you have a pretty amazing boyfriend, but its really nice to have a gluten-free buddy who "gets it."

I hope things keep looking up.

That is wonderful Ali.

It reminds me of the time when I went to visit my parents far far away and they had a friend who had Coeliac. I was so excited having met my first real live coeliac. I was at the stage where I thought I was taking things too seriously in what I could and couldn't eat, upon meeting him, it re-inforced my belief that I was doing it right. I just needed that confirmation.

Acutually he was the second coeliac I had met, the first I had met did not follow the diet strictly (and she was a contact for a coeliac society) giving rise to my feelings that only me and the board members on this forum took it seriously, and maybe out there not many people did. I had felt quite isolated.

But he was wonderful and I owe him a lot for giving me the strength to keep on doing what I was doing diet wise. It is hard when nobody understands the diet, but I just get on with life, and my friends and colleagues and more importantly my family let me be, even if they don't understand why I am so careful. I guess they accept it and in a way that is support.

Just thinking I get to see my mum and dad next week, I can't wait.

I am jealous Ali, I wish I had a gluten free friend for which I could share recipes and ideas.

Ali, that's great. All of us wishing for good things for you must have worked! Perhaps you could be roommates? Wow, that's an idea - a gluten-free house! Also, I hope if you can't go home for Thanksgiving or Christmas that you can take the offer you got from people here to go to their house(s) for the holidays.

Best of luck and wishing only good things for you.
