  1. Can't... Stop... Sleeping...

    I am tired throughout the day no matter how much I sleep. I just slept 12 hours and had some chex for lunch and I want to sleep more. If I drink coffee or soda, it doesn't really help me feel more awake. And when I take a nap, I'm ready to go back asleep as soon as I wake up. It's a vicious cycle. All my friends make fun of me that I'm always tired. It's not my fault!
  2. Glutened? Now What?

    I take ginger root. I get bloated and feel sick so ginger root helps a lot.
  3. Anyone From The Kansas City Area

    I've been looking for people in the Kansas City area too! I'm in Prairie Village and wonder if there is any support group in town.
  4. I've had a painful stomach my whole life. A few months ago, I decided it was time to go to the gastro and see if something was actually wrong with me. After only a few tests, they found out that I had celiac disease. My whole life has changed. I have lost weight. Gained energy. Gotten healthier. Changed my whole diet of course, and had to explain my diet to a lot of people. I was just wondering if there is anything I should do to be more careful in not getting gluten in my diet. I already look at labels and research, but am I missing anything? I just want to make sure I am prepared for whatever celiac disease can throw at me.
  5. Before I started my gluten free diet, I was tired all day long. I also could never remember my dreams. And now that I have been on it for a few months, things have changed. At first, I wasn't tired at all during the day. Now, I remember my dreams and I am starting to become more tired. Does anyone have anything like this?
  6. Depending on how much I got, it will either be horrible abdominal pains or the big D. I have never really experienced headaches or pains in my joints.
