Hello, I Am New

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am from colorado and have been gluten free for a few months now due to living in pain for the past 6 years. First off I am not the best speller in the world so please excuse me hehe ..

I have always have had little health and body issues growing up .. female issues sense i was 13 .. surgery when i was 17 for sists .. Just alot of little issues . After I had my second child witch was a very diffcult birth leading to a emergency c-section. I was dealing with such horrible pain.. Where it started in my joints and spread thru out my body leaving me basically exhuasted and in pain all the time .. Depression and fogness often happened.. Basically started hiding my self because i was never well enough to do anything .. No one of course seemed to understand i seemed healthy no reason why i should be hurting so bad i coulndt move and when i did i was in tears.. Finially after 6 years of dealing with this I went to a natrulist doc who suggested I have a serve allergy to gluten.. I am still in the healing phase and seemed to have picked up a slight dairy allergy now but as my doc said it will be temp.

It is nice to find a forum where people understand and dont look at ya like you have two heads when you explain your issues.. I just wanted to introduce my self and thank you all for leanding support to eachother cause it is so needed..

Thank you all :)
