  2. Can I Get A Little Help Here?

    [font="Comic Sans MS"]I am a new diagnosed celiacian ( yes I made that word up) and am having trouble coping. I was diagnosed the first week of November 08 after my first ever adult hospitalization. I am almost 33 years old and have had several GPs, 2 Neurologists, 2 GI "specialists" and a psychologist tell me I had no reason for my chronic illness and that I was just a over anxious women with IBS. Even after I told 2 of my doctors that my dad was diagnosed with Celiac 2 years ago. I know by reading several books and blogs that this is not unusual, but that does not make it any less maddening. What makes matters worse is that it is affecting my marriage. I have been married to a WONDERFUL man for 13 years who has been sick maybe 3 times in our whole relationship. He is understandably confused and frustrated by my chronic illnesses/ infections. When I was in the hospital a doctor came in while I was sleeping ( at least they thought I was asleep) and started asking my husband questions. My husband stated that in 13+ years he could not remember a week going by when I was not sick at least 1 day of the week. He wanted to know why his young wife was always sick and said that it sometimes like living with a elderly woman not a 32 year old. This is a recurring theme now since I am still battling chronic infections, weight gain, and a severe lack of energy. I know it must be frustrating for him, but I still get upset that he does not understand. After a conversation the other evening we decided maybe to see a marriage counselor, but I want to know if there are any that specialize it people with Celiac. Overall we have a good marriage and love each other very much, but I think the years of my illness have taken a toll on us and we need help with how to cope with this before it causes damage we can't fix. [b]So in short (ha), does anyone know if there are therapists ( in Tennessee ) that deal with Celiac patients and their spouses. [/b][u][/u][/font][size="3"][/size] Please respond. I do plan to continue to blog as time allows. God bless all you fellow Celiacians ( feel free to use that word).
