  1. Grieving The Old Life

    hello everyone, i am new to this site and to celiac disease. i was just diagnosed about a month ago and have been doing ok w/ the diet. although, i am learning that gluten/wheat is in everything!!! my doctor isn't really helpful in the matter. she basically said, "just avoid anything w/ wheat" so i thought simple enough then i started to read up on exactly what products contained wheat. Everything!! i didn't realize that what i always thought were just regular everyday issues i had are actually related to celiac. i have no energy and my skin is always itchy. what i find the most difficult is the support w/i my family. i don't think they understand exactly what celiac is or entails, so sometimes it is hard to get their support. also, i get depressed sometimes about not being able just to go out to a restaurant or enjoy the foods i once ate freely. sorry this is long! i am just relieved that there are others out there that feel the same way i do and that understand what it is i am actually going through. i guess i just needed to vent a little. thanks! kim
