Depression And Celiac

Recommended Posts

I have been gluten free for 18 months. My stomach/intestinal pain is sooo much better. I occasionally get glutened by CC but other than that am pretty much okay digestive wise.

I am however struggling with depression. I have fibromyalgia in addition to celiac and most days I am in a lot of pain and am tired. In the summer months, I would get out and garden or sit outside and read, grill, play with my dogs etc. Ever since the weather has gotten cold, I find myself laying in front of the TV all day and night. My husband and I use to get out and go out to lunch every Saturday. Now that we can no longer do that, we don't get out much at all.

We recently moved from Colorado where there was so much to do and so many things to see that I find myself not knowing what to do with my time or what to do to get out of the house. We haven't really met anyone here and when we do meet someone new, they always want to go to dinner and well...you know how that all goes....I'm not depressed as in needing meds or needing to see someone, I am just in a lot of pain from fibro and the darn celiac makes it so hard to be sociable. Any ideas or anyone going through anything similar?

Thanks :)

I don't know if this will help you at all, but personally I like to go bowling (I'm not very good though). I think it's a pretty fun way to get to know someone new. You still have something to do besides sit and stare at one another through awkward silences. Hiking is also fun, and if you have a dog, I have found that dog parks are a great way to meet people and all those friendly furry puppies tend to make me feel all warm and fuzzy. lol.

If your in a big city there may be a page on facebook of things to do. There is a really great on for Nashville.

Good Luck!
