The Fireworks Are Still Flying

onedesperatelady may need a new name.  Getting giddy usually  happens right before my next dive.  Dive after dive has come to me since I began my hardest battle with mostly untreated celiac 6 years ago.  By battling I mean spending much effort to help my body work right, my plight with celiac began at least three decades ago.  Before it ended,  I even stopped eating all sweets and chocolate!  That's very un-American.

 

This time, I have cause to rejoice.  I feel better.  I jumped out of bed this morning with no alarm and before 6 am, because I wanted to get up!  My bedtime, throughout the battle has been 10 pm, but lately I experienced nights in which I wasn't tired yet.  In recent days, I spent hours in the garden and then began to ponder what to do with the rest of my day.  In past years I would drop on the couch with devastated energy.

 

Recently, my husband told me that things have been going better the last 9 months.  He perceives that I do have a problem with gluten, and it is getting healed up.

 

A few weeks back I did my second nutrient level tests.  Just yesterday, I heard the results.  My vitamin B levels, which had been low last November, sky rocketed.  Well, they were a little high.  My iron levels had recovered after a dip a couple of months back.  Other nutrient levels had come up to normal, except folatin and vitamin D.  This is the very first objective proof of my recovery since going gluten free, and I am very excited.

 

I would insert fireworks here, but I don't know hot to do it **.  Well, that is the best I can do.

 

I hope for all of you that you will have a day like this in which, you feel as if you conquered, and go on living an energetic life.  Have some flowers *** and get well!

Since I don't know how to do fireworks either I thought I would 'blow up' smiley faces. (Well I tried to anyway but I guess there are only so many the board will allow us to post. <_< )

That's great news and thanks for posting it.

News like yours gives newbies hope.

Always nice to remind those starting out that although the road can be long and difficult and at times seem impossible if they read some of these other threads, there is hope and healing.

    • Thankyou ch88 you are so very kind, im so glad there are forums like this, so helpful.  Only signed up the other day and everyone is great.
    • My GI told me that everything looked great visually (endoscopy), but my biopsies revealed moderate to severe intestinal damage.  ☹️  You just have to wait for the pathologist's report.  
    • I ate there July 23 2017, had cheeseburger with gluten free bun (charged extra 2 dollars) which tasted very good. dressed burger with tomato, pickles and onion and even mayo with no unpleasant affects.  I appreciated the choice of gluten-free bun.  Also, the young man serving us asked if I wanted my French fries on the same plate as my burger, I guess their fries are not fried in a dedicated fryer.  Nice of him to give me a heads up though.  I am NCGS not proved as celiac disease.
    • I think you will find that aromatherapy is safe.  I have had the same thing when having facials many, many times over 12 years gluten free and have never, ever had a problem. I have never found any aromatherapy that contained gluten. I am a very sensitive, diagnosed Celiac.  As far as lotion is concerned, you won't have a problem if you wash your hands, which I cannot imagine NOT doing before eating.  That is Celiac 101.  You only have to screen hand lotions for personal use and anything that goes onto the lips.  Eye drops also should be gluten-free as you put that directly into the eye and it can make it's way down into your gut. Hair salons........no, never had a problem.  If a salon uses good products, they will not contain gluten. Again, in 12 years of checking anything new they use, never found any gluten component.  I color and trim my hair once a month and I'm pretty sure I'd be dead by now if I ingested gluten for so often for 12 years.  You really do not want to ingest anything that is sprayed and I can't say that I have.  It's a bad idea for many other reasons besides gluten. I know you are newly diagnosed and yes, you need to check ingredients BUT gluten is not everywhere. If you check whatever they are using and it does not contain the dreaded gluten, then do not worry about it.
    • There is a lot of information on site about living with Celiac disease. A good idea is to take a look at the "coping with" section and the "newbie info 101" thread. There is a lot of good information about cross contamination and proper nutrition.
