  1. Thanks a bunch Lisa and Lily, This is so hard to deal with I have to deal with the depression as well and have been on antidepressants. (which is just don't like to take) I feel like I'm so alone in this - my husband is great but he doesn't understand. I want to talk about it because I just don't understand why I was born with this or inherited it. I went to a grocery store here in MA called Wild Oats and they have so much stuff for people with celiac disease. I'm going to go out and buy a bread maker and start baking bread and other stuff that I can eat. It's really hard my husband's uncle has this and when he comes over to my in-laws for dinner they go out of their way to fix things he can eat, but when I go they don't and they live downstairs. It's really frustrating. So I guess I will just have to either bring my own food or just eat in my own home - which I would prefer.... gf4life thanks for the email - that was a blessing. I was really stuck on what not to eat and what I could eat. I most definitely will be using the info.
  2. Hi all, I was diagnosed with Celiac Sprue a week ago today. And I am really scared, I just turned 40 in Sept and I have had this for over 15 yrs and doctor's kept telling me that it was IBS (irritable bowel Syn). I get migraines and they have been so bad this past year along with anxiety and panic attacks. I have been also Diagnosed with RA. I just want to get better or shall I say feel better. I do know that caffeine and chocolate as well as diary products really bother me. So I try and stay away from them. I am going to a Dietician on Jan 22 and a Gastro Dr on Jan 12. I had to go to the emergency on Tuesday of this week found out that I have Kidney stones which thank god I passed. If you have any info for me on how to deal with this disease it would be greatful.
  3. Hi, I am so frustrated!! To say the least... I was diagnosed with Celiac Sprue a week ago via blood test. For 15 years I have been running around with this thinking I had IBS (irritable bowel Syn) nobody took the time to have me tested. I also have been tested positive for RA and I have panic attacks. As well as alot of other symtoms of CS. I am going to meet with a Dietician but that is not until Jan 22. So you can see I am scared I do know that this Disease can be life threatening can someone help me with what I can eat and what I can't eat.. Thanks
