Hello,

I am relatively new to this site. I dont often reply to anything, I just read and get information. I was diagnosed with Celiac in July of 08.

I have noticed in this forum that people sometimes try and out do each other with symptoms. I found that very odd. And also I find that alot of people on this site self diagnose themselves with the disease. I look at it the more we dwell on being sick it just makes us sicker. People are very gloom we still have our lives in tact we just have to live them a little differently than others thats all.

thats really all I wanted to say... :)

This forum is filled with all sorts of people. People like you who just "lurk". People who come in here only when they feel like crap to vent. People who are new to the disease and need valid help. People who find Celiac/Gluten intolerance interesting even though they dont have it. And people who are doing well, but come in here just to help others and offer support.

It is a living breathing organism like anything else. You will not appreciate everything about it. But you do not need to. You can still benefit from it even though you do not like how each member behaves.

We are all lucky a forum like this exists. :)

I dont consider my self a " lurker" so I take a little offense to that statement. Thats fine with people if they want advise...obviously that is why I am here. But I still believe that alot of people really do try and out do each other with their symptoms. That is my opinion thats all. I have no problem ginving out information as I have done in the past. So dont need to be so angry with my point. Thats what this forum is for as you have stated for venting...

Hi Laurianne,

My name is Lisa and I've been active on this site for over three years. You will find a wide variety of people here. But, there is one thing we all have in common. For the most part, many of us have been very, very ill and in searching for a path to good health, we landed here.

Celiac Disease has over 200 symtoms and the group of us vary in all manners. We gather here because we all have Celiac Disease, gluten intolernace or gluten sensitivities, or associated illnesses caused by it. Some people come here because this is the only place that they could be understood. Some people come to this place for the best information around and others find a hand to hold in a terrible time of their lives. Others are healed and stay to "pay it forward" so to speak.

So, there are many reasons that people find themselves here. I hope you have reason enough to stay. We learn from everyone here. And everyone is welcome! ;)

I can see your point, that sometimes it can appear that people are trying to one-up each other when they are explaining/listing symptoms. I cannot speak for anyone but myself here, but as a person who was told by the western medical community that almost all of my "symptoms" were either in my head or could not possibly be celiac disease... I have found this forum a place to ask questions and see what other people deal with.

I was told that regurgitating food was not a classic symptom of the disease, but by talking about it here, I found that some other people deal with it too. My personal list of symptoms is over 20 "things" that happen to my body when I get glutened, so when someone new asks what happens to my body it may appear that I am trying to "out do" the person that posted before me, but really I am just trying to share my information in hopes that it will help someone else.

Like Momma Goose mentioned, there are so many different symptoms that do not happen to everyone, it is complicated.

I am grateful for the forum because it helped give me answers to a myriad of my symptoms that kept confounding medical doctors and myself and by reading other people's lists, I was able to start to put the peaces together and finally start healing.

I hope that you find the site useful!

    • Thanks, I'll look into these. This is what I'd seen re: lanolin in d3.  http://www.livestrong.com/article/414363-difference-between-vitamin-d-from-fish-oil-lanolin/
    • Found this article about a 11 year old with celiac who was forced to eat outside after being told he could not bring and eat his own "Safe" food into Shields Tavern. Biggest point was the social impact it had on the kid and the way it was handled. I think this will bring up a new perspective and in the end perhaps open more restaurants to understanding that some of us have to bring own food to a gathering for our own safety and that ousting us for it is actual discrimination with legal implications. I personally bring my own food when I eat out, I tip big for it if they are understanding and normally order a 1 ingredient side to simplify it with the least chance of contamination. This is something many of us do to meet a compromise and interact in a social environment, and feel normal. While it really depends on person to person and how sensitive/comfortable you are eating out, heading out to accompany and eat with family, friends, and coworkers should be a option, even if we have to bring our own food as a compromise. http://wydaily.com/2017/07/20/family-of-disabled-11-year-old-sues-colonial-williamsburg-for-discrimination-nws/ On a side note remember not every chain and store are the same, always talk to a manager, or call ahead before bringing in your own food, or eating out with special requirements, dietary restrictions, or extreme food allergies/intolerance.
    • Lanolin to my knowledge is used in skin based applications only, if your needing D3 the best way is to get a sublingual in a dropper you can use there are many available. I personally use Liquid Health and just add it to a drink once or twice a week. https://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-95099-liquid-health-vitamin-d3-drops-1000-iu-2-03-oz BTW while your looking Liquid Health also makes a Stress & Energy Supplement, and a Neurological one I swear by. They have many other liquid based formulas if you wish to avoid pills (I already take a bunch anyway for other health issues)
    • Which D3 supplements aren't made from lanolin?   I had skin inflammation in the past from topical lanolin. I'm not sure if processed ingested lanolin in D3 should concern me, but thought I'd consider a  non lanolin version.
    • Is your concern the social aspects of eating on the job, or not always feeling well enough to get out the door? I'm in health care, and just happened to be in home care when I was diagnosed.  It actually works well, as I make my own hours, and can reschedule visits as need be. I would think you could complete your MBA easily, maybe part time if necessary.  It's not clear what your career path might be ....counseling?   Industrial psych? Research? Once you are established (and you can do that part time if need be, to start), you will have more options for flexed or reduced hours.  If the social aspects of eating are an issue, you can always excuse yourself at meals, drive to a pleasant location, and eat in your car. Or go for a walk and find a place to eat. For work luncheons,  I just have a beverage or pick up a piece of fruit, so I give the appearance of participating.
