The Fireworks Are Flying

Entry posted by 1desperateladysaved · - 1,185 views

[size=5]Onedesperatelady may need a new name! Getting giddy usually happens to me before the next dive comes. Dive after dive has come to me since I have been really battling celiac disease (mostly Undiagnosed) for 6 years! By battling, I mean spending much efforts to help my body work right, my actual plight with celiac. disease has been at least 30 years. [/size]

[size=5]This time I have cause to rejoice. I feel better. I jumped out of bed this morning at 6 am, because I felt like getting up. Some nights I remain alert and awake when my 10 pm usual bedtime arrives. In recent days I spent hours gardening and then pondered what to do with the rest of my day. In past years, I would hit the couch with devastated energy.[/size]

[size=5][size=5]Recently, my husband told me that things are getting better over the last 9 months. He perceives that I do have a problem with gluten, and the things I am doing are helping healing.[/size][/size]

[size=5]A few weeks back I did my second nutrient level tests. Just yesterday, I heard the results. My vitamin B12 levels, which tested low, last November had sky rocketed. Well, they were a little high. My iron levels had recovered after a dip a couple of months back. Other nutrient levels had come up to normal, except folic acid and vitamin D. I get to cut back on my supplements! This is the very first objective proof of my recovery, since going gluten free, and I am very excited![/size]

[size=5]I would insert fireworks here, but I don't know how to do it. ::: Well that's the best I can do.[/size]

[size=5]I hope for all of you that you will have a day like this in which, you feel as if you conquered and go on living an energetic life! Have some flowers ***.[/size]
