  1. My Son Needs Help.....

    Thank you all for listening to my story. Your information will help me and my son learn more about this disease. I am going to check into this Paleo cookbook. I did not know that I even have to dedicate utensils to my cooking. Will do. I wish we could take a vacation but.... just started a new business and the finances are not there right now. I think I will take him to a movie today and spend some quality time with him after we go shopping for new utensils ~Is it safe to buy gluten free pizzas from a local grocers deli? I am going to get on the mall and check out some of the gluten free products they have to offer. Thanks again. Brenda from Wisconsin

    Thank you so much for the info. I definitely will give him a hug. I am so looking forward to the day he is actually healed and happy.
  3. Hi Folks: I am new to the celiac disease world. My son was colic when he was a baby and no w at 15just found out he has celiac disease. The day we found out, it was like a big relief to him. He was happy, for once. He was feeling like crap for this many years. Poor kid! On to a new chapter and hopefully a better one. It seems as though he gets more depressed every day. He doesn't want to go to school. He knows we cannot fathom the idea of going out to eat. We order gluten free pizza and on the box it reads "made in a gluten infested facility" so he doesn't want to eat that. His attitude sucks. Crabby and sometimes even mean to others. He has missed so much school because he never feels good. What can I do to make him feel better? I need help. I want my son to live life to the fullest and it seems it is just going down the tubes. He is on an anti-depressant (Setraline which is like Zoloff). This is the only one the psycologist will give him due to his age. He refuses to eat any fruits or vegetables because of the texture. I buy gluten free crackers and cookies. He will not even try them. I will make a gluten free meal for all of us and sometimes he won't even eat it telling me he does not like it. I am angry and frustrated. I want to have him talk to someone professionally but don't even know where to start looking. Help????? Brenda in Wisconsin
