  1. Struggling

    Is any one aware of any support groups in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. I have to tell you my spouse is not very supportive and nor is my family. Everyone feels bad for me as they eat pizza and cake in front of me. I would love any information on list of products/restaurants people have. Not sure how to receive them in this forum. I am jsut having a hard time imagining never ordering pizza, fired chickn, pasta or a hambuerger again!
  2. I have been diagnosed with Celiac disease and am really struglling. I feel the information is overwhelming and I read so many different things. My dietician and doctor aren't that helfpul with the diet. I have been on the diet 7 weeks now and every day gets harder, not easier. My symptoms aren't that bad so I acutally feel worse on the diet than before I was diagnosed. I am always hungry now and have headaches all the time. I think gluten-free food is very expensive. I have bought so many things and I only like one of them. I no longer enjoy social events or going out. I attend a lot of church functions and school functions for my son and all I do is watch everybody eat food I can't have. I travel a lot for business and am often not able to chose where/what we eat. I just watch everyone eating the food I can't have. Alll I do is think about all the food I can't eat. Since I wasn't feeling that bad before being diagnosed, this is devistating to me. In additon I fear since I am not the most savvy label reader that I may be getting traces of wheat and not knowing it. I just look for wheat, barley, or rye on the ingredient list. Every time I call a manufacturer they assure me if wheat isn't listed it isn't in there. I know longer enjoy eating and often skip meals. I still am in shock that I paid $5 for a box of gluten-free brownies when I normally pay 99 cents for a box. I won't now if I am better until another biopsy is done.
