Questions On Coping In General

Recommended Posts

I think you & Lisa just misunderstood each other. That's all I was trying to clear up.

Yes, thank you Karen, apparently I misunderstood the statement. A lesson learned not to skim a post before commenting :D

I think we did too. Sorry Lisa. I am in a foul mood today too because I've been nauseous for weeks. I posted a thread about it.

Let's get back to the original subject. How do you cope in general? I could use some more ideas because this nausea is obviously making me a grouch. LOL


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!

Well...good girls! I remember SSG to be a reasonable person, so I knew she didn't think the evil gluten had sharp teeth and was burrowing into her hands in order to attack her gut. ( might make a good horror movie?)

SSG - you have extra to handle. I suppose you can be grouchy if you want. I'm actually quite grouchy about my family & Thanksgiving. I'm wondering if it's to late to go to Disney.

I do try to find something funny when I'm grouchy or depressed. I have subscribed to a few things on Facebook just to get pics of silly animals or things like that. Some days I don't even look at them but they are there if I can't find anything else.

Yeah it's been a rough time that's for sure. Glad we cleared that up!

Are you talking So Cal Disney or Florida? We have passes and we go a lot.... when I'm well that is.

Don't really care! Both are good! Just want to run away! Somewhere where someone else can make me food!

Disney is so good about gluten free too!

I'd have to have a xanax to deal with Disney World. :D (Remembering when some chick with a stroller knocked my mom's walker out from under when rushing to the fireworks.) I wanted to throttle her!


Positive improvement from elimination diet. Mother dx'd by Mayo Clinic in late 1980s. Negative blood tests and Upper & Lower GI biopsy. Parathyroidectomy 12/09. Recurring high calcium level 4/10. Gluten-free 4/10. Soy & Dairy Free 6/10. Corn free 7/10. Grain free except rice 8/10. Legume free 6/11. Fighting the battle of the battle within myself, and I'm going to win!

As of 2/12, tolerating dairy, corn, legumes and some soy, but I limit soy to tamari sauce or modest soy additives. Won't ever try quinoa again!

Discoid Lupus from skin biopsy 2011, discovered 2/12 when picking up medical records. Systemic Lupus Dx 6/12. Shingles 10/12.

LOL! :P We never go near the place Thanksgiving weekend though. It's the busiest weekend of the year and black Friday is the very busiest day of the year there. I think they usually get to capacity. Craziness!

While I don't agree with everything in the above post, YES gluten from shampoo can get into your mouth while in the shower. It's easy to remove that aspect, so it's no longer a possibility when you get ill from other sources. :)

lol have you ever tasted shampoo? haha that stuff is nasty :P last thing i would do is swallow it

about 6-8 months i went a little nuts, thinking i was "all better" AND i overdid it with stuff that bothers me less and less as time goes by: nightshades, soy, dairy, etc. also thinking that just because they SAID it was safe doesn't mean it is: my blood pressure meds - called the manufacturer and they said the drug was safe so i took them. ran out for a week (i know, bad arlene) and my guts calmed down. turns out the capsule the drug is in is made of some kind of starch nobody could tell me what it was made of. so now i take the drug out of the capsule (called pharmacy and they said this was ok to do) and i'm fine with it. annnd the hand sanitizer/lysol wipes thing: went camping, was miserable - now i make sure i wash my hands with (gluten-free) soap and rinse with h2O if we camp. also separate my gluten free food in my own cooler :)
