  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I Glutened myself at a football game today...crushed 4 hot dogs (no buns). Within 1 hour I: -Fell asleep at the game (NFL game, very loud, couldn't keep my eyes open) -Crazy bloated...like my belly is gonna explode. extremely uncomfortable. -Brain-fog, my head kinda throbs...not painful, just feels really weird. -Total body discomfort...moaning and groaning. It is the worst...the scary part was falling asleep at the game...came out of nowhere. Thanksgiving is gonna be tricky. But I'll get through it and be careful. -Will
  3. Justine- I'm also 27 and was diagnosed earlier today. My sister was diagnosed a few weeks ago and as soon as she was she called and said that I should get tested ASAP. It's crazy to think that the life as I knew it will now be changing...not only the diet but the opportunity to be able to live the rest of my life (and there is a lot left) and feel healthy. Since the age of 18 I've always had this feeling of something being wrong, just off. Fortunately I haven't had to suffer thought the GI symptoms that accompany celiac disease like you, my sister and many people on this board. I've contended with the mental and emotional anguish of this thing. My depression has been appalling at times and the "brain fog" that I've read people describe has been so consistent that it has become part of who I am on a day to day basis. No matter how weird and scary this thing is right now the positives far out weigh the negatives...We are young we have so much time to adjust and live the rest of our live feeling healthy, some people here have lived with this thing for years upon years with out ever knowing. If I ever have kids they will be screened right of the bat and will be adjusted before they even know they have it. The first Dr. I went to to get blood tested told me he wouldn't give me a blood test because I didn't have any GI problems...I couldn't believe it. After my sisters diagnosis and all that I had read online...I had it out with him right there in the exam room and walked out. (he wasn't my family Dr. I just moved here to Phoenix) Luckily I found the Phoenix Celiac Assoc. website and it directed me to a knowledgeable Dr. who had treated many Celiacs (Dr. Deborah Villa). She was cool and understood...we talked and she made me feel great about it. I am confidant that the next generation of Medical professionals are going to tackle this disease and bring it to the mainstream. We are going to be fine and it's inspiring to read all of the life changing recovery stories on this board. Try not to let it get you down...The best most healthy years of your life are ahead of you. -Take care
