  1. Hope you're doing well. Give me a holla if you need support. :) Great folks here on this forum with lots of awesome ideas to help. You can do it! :D

  2. celiac confused..:|

  3. although I self diagnosed because of being ignored and treated like a hypochondriac for the past two yrs, i too have lesions that start like acne (and I am an avid picker if im sweating)but turns into lesions that hurt literally.. takes forever to heal ... when I went gluten free (going on about 5-6 wks now) Mine cleared up.. but the purple scars are still very vivid and always have been.. had it on back of my arms as a child, then after childbirth it progressed to front of arms and then to chest and face after giving birth.. when i got sick 2 yrs ago i started breaking out on my behind and a few on my legs..I have deep scars in my face from picking because i couldnt stand the acne like feeling or the scabs...
  4. hello all my fellow celiac friends.. Im new to this and still struggling... just need reassurance...

  5. I just wondering if any one around me has this horific :whatever: you wanna call it.. Ive been laughed at and shunned and people just shake their heads at me when I desccribe what has been wrong with me.. I just dont want to feel so alone...
  6. Are Some A Little Ocd?

    Hey, im new on here too.. I know it is sooo very overwhelming.. sorry, the pic i have of me is "before" getting sick.. I dont look like that any more.. Ive had all your symptoms and then some.. but yes to your questions.. everyones symptoms and tolerance is different.. Ive learned alot from these sites and it is disheartening.. but Id rather be well.. Ive been sick for two yrs with nothing but misdiagnosis and more meds.. Im not a pin cushion... it does suck but it just basics.. dont eat stuff that isnt fresh and clean.. grow your own if possible.. I wondered if that is why i didnt get sick until later in life.. My family grew most all our foods and I didnt start eating out until I was in my early twenties.. my symptoms came as constant sinus problems and skin rash type break outs that i thought was adult acne after childbirth.. Ive ,earned that my "laziness" to not wanting to grow a garden of which i had been brought up to do could be the reason for my sickness.. I started eating out alot and doing the "quick " meals.. not any more.. I have to spend alot of time in the grocery store and reading labels and researching.. but it better than dying of something that could be prevented..
  7. Burning In Upper Stomach

    I had burning in my stomach for days on end, became so painful I felt it all the way through to my back... Doing research i found (going along with the "tine" in it) ... try eating steamed cabbage.. has l-gltamine I think in it.. helped my tremendously and I feel so much better...
