Kicking And Screaming

1 1


I am just tired of all the fighting it seems like I have to do with all of this life. I have had nothing but problems since I was a kid with one thing or another. As an Adult, same thing. I have been just recently diagnosed with celiac disease, on top of the
Endometriosis, and PCOS. i do not have a gall bladder, or an appendix. I am just tired. I have struggled with my weight my entire life, and now with this, everyone is like you will loose so much weight. I haven't seen a result yet, I still am feeling like crap, and I am tired of having to read every stinking label there is on food. it's food, I should be able to just eat it, oh but no i am not allowed too. Not anymore. I know I do not have it as bad as some people, but I am just needing an outlet. it just seems like no matter what, I am lost. I just wish i knew how to deal with this thing better

Hang in there!  Give the GF diet some time.  Eventually, you'll get used to it.  My husband has been GF for over 12 years and I've been the one reading the labels and preparing the food.  Despite that "edge", I felt overwhelmed when I was diagnosed in March. 


Not everyone is underweight here.   My only CD symptoms were anemia and thyroiditis.

I can totally relate to your frustrations.  It has been less than a year since I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease.  About six years ago, I was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphatic Leukemia, and I tried to find out if there was a correlation but was told by the doctor that it doesn't matter because my leukemia isn't active.  I now find that I catch every illness that is floating around.  I have had two sinus infections and bronchitis in the last year and just caught the stomach bug on the day after Christmas.  My father passed away in July and I ended up with pneumonia and bronchitis two weeks after he passed away.  I have eaten gluten free since the diagnosis but feel that when I"m eating out, I cannot trust the food.  As soon as I overeat, the stomach ache starts and I am running to the bathroom all day.  I know that I overeat out of frustration and boredom but just feel helpless when I am sick most of the time.
