  1. I'm flaring again... I've already cut out dairy and that helped for a while. I made some gluten-free dairy-free tomato soup and I'm in unbearable pain. I think I may need to consider nightshades. How would I know what that looks like? Help me please!
  2. Again, thank you so much for your help! I've cut dairy and soy out of my diet and have felt SO much better! It's still tough but much easier when you're not feeling like crud all the time. Also, I've tried switching out all my cosmetics and toiletries but it's proven overwhelming to say the least. I'm read conflicting reports but what shampoo do you all use? I'm at a loss. I got some Desert Essence organic shampoo but it made my scalp break out in painful hives :\ Figures huh? Any help?
  3. Every new day brings new hope

  4. Some times you just get thrown into a really cruddy situation. It sucks, it's not fair but it just is. There no way to change it. You can't control the circumstance but you can control how you rise to face it. Celiacs: Bite me.

  5. Anyone From Denver?

    I'm fairly new to Celiacs and struggling. Is there anyone here from Denver, CO who might be willing to start a support group/mentor program? At the very least could someone send me in the right direction to find one?
  6. Thank you all so much for your kind words and sound advice. It is greatly appreciated!! This is harder than I had ever expected but it's comforting to know it can be done and there are people willing to help newbies like me. Thank you.
  7. This feels a little silly but I don't know what else to do, besides cry some more. I'm 21, a senior in college, and was diagnosed with Celiacs about 2 months ago. I've been really diligent about my diet but none of my symptoms have gone away. Most have gotten worse and several new ones have shown up. I have a really supportive family, for which I am VERY thankful, but out of six I'm the only one with the disease and it can be really lonely. I've also been gaining a lot of weight, which I've struggled with my whole life. Right now I'm 5'2'' at 155. I am trying my hardest to have a good attitude about it but I just feel worse than before and I'm so tired of it. I'm in more pain than ever, overwhelmed, depressed, and scared... Any advice or prayers are sorely needed...
