  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Thanks Beverly, I actualy decided I would put in a call to my Dr. and ask him about it. I mean if it is such a miricle why arent we all healed? I have not been in for a while. I am sick all the time. But I Have some other problems and lactose is one. Fybromyalgia is one. Artoritis, so I am an old lady who is a mess. But thank you. I am wondering if you are the Beverly who sent me a huge list of foods about four years ago. It was called ----- list. I cant remember. I lost it when my computer crashed. BK
  3. Hi, I have not been on here for years but I am today!!! I wanted to ask you, are you serious about the vanilla being gluten free only if it is the real thing? Maybe that is one of my problems. If true thankyou for that tip. I need to stay in touch... You guys are the best. BK
  4. I just read right on this very site "Gluten Alergy symtoms" So I am so confused.
  5. Ok you guys are really helping me now. Thankyou. Please anyone keep throwing things at me. I have had this so long I think I have gotten myself confused with all the other stuff I have too. Also I have a memory problem. I know Celiac is an autoimmune thing but it is caused from the alergy to the wheat by products isnt it? Or is is triggered by them. Oh my gosh I need to go back to studing. I have been sick for so long I am reaching for miricles I guess. I have never been able to feel good since I got this stuff. Thankyou so much for your info and patience. I am just an old lady who has been about ready to throw in the towel....
  6. Yes it is we are alergic to the gluten.
  7. I have had Celiac Spru for about 5 or 6 years. Along with a few other things. I am 51 years old. I go up and down from a 140lbs to 110lbs all the time. I am sick constantly. I dont know why but I can not seem to get anything under controll. Recently I heard about Allegenix. It is done by this chyroprator out here in Utah that we know and mayber alot other dr.s I dont know. What I need to know is Has ANYONE HEARD OF IT AND DOES IT WORK? I keep thinking that if it works why are there so many of us still celiac sufferers?
  8. I was really relieved to know what I had so I could do something to make it better and gain some strength back. It was hard a couple of times when we would have a big get together at olive garden or something but for them most part I have just been gratefull it wasnt something worse. I work in a elementary school lunchroom. And I see Down syndrom children And ms chileren and several others and these are little children. I count my blessings. I have lived my life and if all I have to do is not eat something well so be it. Sometimes I do get something I shouldnt and I pay the price and I am sick. And ya know at least I know it isnt a death sentance like cancer. So we need to cheer up and help each other cheer up and work together to work on this miserable illness. I dont like it. But I dont like the common cold either. Take care every one. Barb
  9. Help

    You guys are all really nice and I thankyou. I am going to go back to my Dr and give this all another go. Maybe I will feel better. I have no support system out here except my husband and some people think I am a quack. So I will stick with it and get on board. I hope you dont mind if I chat with you guys all the time. Thank you so much. Barb
  10. Help

    Rachael, I cant beleive you have all that. And I tested positive for Lymes a couple of years ago too but brushed it off. I thought the dr was a quack. And yes I had and upper GI and they took a biopsy, blood work. It just seems that the times I do eat something it doesnt hurst any more so what the heck ya know. So I get thinking is this just a joke or what. I did lose alot of weight befor and now I have gained a lot back so I have to wonder about it. Why would I. I live out in the sticks where I cant go to any support groups or anything. It is just really hard. And i am an old woman. But thankyou so much to you and all of you for the supporting answers, I really appreceate you. You are angles.. Barb
  11. Rachael, I am so sorry. I thought I had it rough. and you are so young. I to take thyroid pills and have wondered why I keep having the gluten problem maybe mine is also something else. Hon you hang in there and you will get it all together. Barb
  12. Be honest, do any of you really wonder if this is all true or if it is just a scam that drs use to make a big deal of ? Ya Know at first I hurt but I had for along time. Now I dont and I have eve went as far as to see if I could eat stuff and it didnt hurt. The one day it did. but then not for a while again. Is this really celiac do you think or am I just an idiot. The doc that diagnosed me was over this big celiac thing in slc so I wonder sometimes if he just wanted to get it going good like the big lymes disese scare. I feel like I am crazy I lost weight and now I am just putting it on like crazy which depress's me. Every one i work with thinks It is all silly and they eat all this stuff in front of me. I dont get diarea I get the oppisite. I just get pain. I dont throw up. Then I get gas and it last about 5 hours. But that only happens sometime. Please help me staighten up or just play russion rulett or tell me some of you have felt this way, Barb
  13. Please please can anyone tell me how our hair holds up to a permenant? My hair has fallen out so bad and it is way thin. I want to get a loose curl perm to give is some thickness. And so when I curl it is wont be absolutey flat in two hours. Please doesn anyone out there know anything about this. If I get one will hair all fall out? Will it burn my hair real bad? Or will it not take? What I have left for hair is really fine also. Thanks so much for listening . Barb
  14. Help Turning Into A Salad.

    no one ever talks to me. Once in a while i get on this site to aske a serious questions and no one will ever talk to me. I am at my wits end. Sometimes I feel like I am in the ozone and it isnt even real that it is a lymes deseise thing . Ya know how there for awhile that is what everything was.The Dr.s sent my husband and I to Los Vegas to some quack. Said that is what we had. Now I have celiac spru. I dont know. I just want to be me again. I have no personality anymore. I am just nothing. I am a nothing... I am wondering if it is bull. I know we all get into clicks but we need to talk to everyone ok. Thanks
  15. Why Are So Many Of Us Still Not Feeling Well?

    do any of you sometimes feel like this is like the big lymes desiese scare? My husband and I were both diagnosed with it. Because we were sick. And now I have celiac. I still dont feel good. Some times I just think it is a bunch of bull. Do any of you ever ever feel like maybe it is just a bunch of bull. I live in a little town in the bushes and i cant get into the little groups and all the appointments. I cant buy all the special foods. I cant sleep I can eat like I should. I am tired, I dont feel good. And yet sometimes I test it to see and I dont get sick and other times I do. whats up with that? I am dumb and cant keep up with it all anyway cause I have a bad memory so I might as will just be me and let it all go. I am so onery I dont know why my poor husband stays. Well thanks for listening. Barb
