  1. Thanks very much for all of your input. Since I first posted this things have gotten a little easier. Bakery items is one of my most favorite things that I am missing. I would love some recipes And no I am not trolling lol
  2. Yes I know you are correct I just think I'm in denial and that it could lead to worse issues. In my head I keep thinking if I never went to the doctor for the mysterious rash I never would have known I had celiacs to begin with and would still be eating those Foods. Stupid I know I'm just having a hard time with this especially since I don't like a lot of foods that are gluten-free naturally
  3. Thanks for your replies. Already had my intestines ruptured and had emergency surgery about 8 yrs ago due to diverticulitis. Yes I'm sure my diet is gluten free.... Been discussed with my doctor. I barely eat out due to CC. My friends have chosen not to invite me out because of my issues. I can't blame them. I don't even enjoy going out any place with them because it's torture watching them eat all the foods that I cannot eat while I sit there eating a gross protein bar or worse vegetables lol. All of my blood work has come back normal I do not have any deficiency issues. I do not enjoy vegetables and I do not enjoy eating food without flavor I would prefer to just not eat. I have tried to eat that kind of stuff and I gag and end up not eating. I just don't understand why I should be eating eating gluten-free if I'm not having any symptoms. I honestly believe my joint pain is caused by other things. It seems as though I would prefer to live my life happily eating the foods I enjoy and may be dying a little quicker rather than being miserable my entire life and having to live longer with my miserable life.
  4. I was diagnosed with celiacs disease last year by blood test and endoscopy. I was originally trying to find out why I kept getting these mysterious rashes..... Which led to the diagnosis of celiacs however that is not the causes of my rashes, go figure. I have read through all of the symptoms of celiacs and as I do have joint pain and allergies, anxiety and depression, some bloating, I was never bothered by them before I was diagnosed. Since going gluten-free for about a year now all of the symptoms have gotten worse. I am more depressed.... And have been in physical therapy all year for different joint pains. So I'm not seeing any Improvement at all. If I never went to the doctors to find out what the rash was for in the first place I would have never found out about celiacs disease. So my question is what is the point of going gluten-free if I never have symptoms that I haven't learned to deal with to begin with. It's only causing me more depression anxiety and causing me to eat more sugar because it's the only thing I can find I can eat. Help! I have been excluded from invitations to go out with friends. If I make plans to go anywhere I have to research to find out if I can eat there or where I'll be able to eat. My life is now revolving around eating and cooking and preparing my food. Right now I'd much rather live a happy life I don't care if I died 10 years earlier.
