6ft6

A Little Vent

Recommended Posts

I lost my job Monday. I received a severance at leat, but it won't be easy to find something new. It was really awful for several months. A re hostile workplace situation with no accommodation of my illness. I can now focus on my health instead of the fear of job loss, but this really sucked. All of you out there hang in.

I'm sorry to hear you lost your job but it sounds like the place was pretty toxic. Glad you were able to get a severence and I hope you can find another better job soon. Hang in there, you never know this time next year you may look back and say losing that job was the best thing that ever happened. I do hope so anyway.

So sorry to hear that. It's such a rough time right now. It sucks that work places make it so difficult for celiacs.

Are you really 6ft6? My brothers are 6ft4 and that's tall. :lol:

Somehow I ended up 4'11" and guess what the doc thinks? Undiagnosed celiac as a kid caused my growth to be stunted. I was super tall in the 5th grade. This height actually. Then I mysteriously stopped growing. Now we know why.


Lots of doctors diagnosed me with lots of things including IBS, lactose intolerance, wheat intolerance, and quite a few of them threw up their hands in total confusion.

Had GI symptoms, allergy symptoms and unexplained illness my whole life.

Jan. 2010 Diagnosed celiac at the age of 40.

Ready to get well and get on with my life!
