New At All Of This

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I wanted to start off by saying thank you everybody. I have just started to go through the gluten-free process. I am 22 and the doctors have just figured out what might be wrong with me after 7 years. I told them it wasn't the flu, but they didn't listen. After spending some time in here I can now really understand what is going on and how to cope. Now all I have to do is get over is no cake and cookies. So thank you and keep sharing the knowledge with others who are new at this.

Hi Amanda and welcome to the board. The best advice I can give you is to read as many posts as you can. I read for 3 months before joining in and I learned so much. Any question I had was somewhere in here. Everyone is so helpful so don't be afraid to ask. You can still have cake and cookies they just won't be made from wheat. There are some really good ones out there.

Yellow Rose


27 years of misdiognoses

seziures summer of 1979 lasted 10 years had maybe a dozen in that time Dr.s never could find what was causing them blamed it on lack of sleep and maybe nutrasweet

rheumatoid arthritis May 1980

wrist joint replacement Jan 1984

fibromyalgia May 1980

insomnia since the 80's

diarrhea 1995-2000 blamed on arthritis meds

Crohn's 1998 after two operations to fix fissures caused by the diarrhea

Other symptons over the last 27 years that have been treated for symptoms not causes:

depression, anemia, constipation, tooth discoloration, tremors in hands, tingling and numbness in feet and hands, fatigue, high blood pressure due to arthritus meds, flushing in face, severe muscle pain and thinking I was going crazy thanks to Dr.'s attitudes.

After diognoses my mother tells me I have an aunt and a cousin with Celiac. Mother tested negative but thinks she is intolerant to wheat and is changing her diet.

Suspect all three of my children have it as well but still trying to convince them to go get tested.

In answer to my prayer, "Lord Please Heal My Broken Body". May 2007 Celiac antibody test positive

Matthew 7: 8 Ask and ye shall receive, Seek and ye shall find, Knock and it shall be opened unto you.
