I swear if anybody in myhouse eats my food one more time I am gonna go to the store and buy my own refregerator, nuwave cooktop and nuwave oven. I will fix all my stuff in my room. They just don't care but them eating my food means there is a day I go without supper. I can't just go to a snack machine or just fix a microwave dinner. All my food is budgeted. They know it makes me sick if I eat something else,m they just don't care. I have to work to pay for my food and one day I cave in because I am starving and weak and running on fumes at work, means I spend the next week ill.

Am I the only one who sometimes feels as if the people who are supposed to love you the most don't care if they make you ill? On top of this, one of the very few people in my life who listens and cares about me just died in a car accident and I am beginning to feel that I wish it were me instead. Of her. This suffering seems endless and a lost cause. I am on a rollercoaster of anger, hurt, depression and I don't know how long I can hold onto hope :'(

I am sorry for the loss of your friend :( Some people are very special and make such a difference in our lives. Hang in there, and don't let the grieving get you down too far.

Family can be very thoughtless and inconsiderate. Try to be rational with them rather than angry, if you can. Print our your post here and give it to them, so that they can understand in a moment of reflection what they are doing to you and how bad it makes you feel. Chin up a bit, Razzle, you can do this !!

Awww ((((hugs)))) hang in there! Losing a friend is always a terrible thing, but we're all glad to still have you here. :wub:

You aren't the only one to get mad, or upset about stuff like that. I about blew my top this evening when I found a bunch of my stuff in the "deli" drawer of the fridge. You know... the one everyone else in the house gets into while handling bread. But eating my stuff? I'd lose it. You're right, we don't have options. I try to talk to people about things like this when I'm not mad, that way I don't freak out and make them not listen to me. It is possible that they just don't realize they are being inconsiderate jerks. Of course, you need to be all PC and not actually use those words when you talk to them, no matter how appealing. :P

Thanks to the both of you for your encouragement. Tried to post sooner but had problems with replying so I gave up. My brother is psycho...literally. He has gone crazy and there is no talking to him. It is like talking to a drunk. If i get stern he could fly off the handle and punch a hole in the wall or who knows what. Not being able to assert myself with someone who is very selfish and egocentric leaves me feeling trapped. Yesterday I came home and my coconut milk is completely empty because he drank all their milk then mine. He makes excuses and says he doesnt know whats mine. Really?! when in our entire life has mom ever bougt coconut milk or anything besides dairy? When has she bought brown eggs? When has mom ever made burgers out of turkey meat?

There is absolutely nothing I can do about it but it causes anxiety when I think about him messing with my stuff. I am a CNA and if i get glutened bad enough I dont want to lose my job because my stupid brother got into my crap as if there is not enough food in this house for him to eat. Hhh I am thinking about asking my aunt if I can move in with her because there is also mold all in this house making me ill

    • Insurance is a pain! But, one of the interesting things about the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) is that it set individual out of pocket maximums. This year it is $7100. I realize that it is a HUGE amount of money, but if you started to pursue the work up this year and don't delay, you could get everything done (scope, labs, doc visits) and know the answer in a couple of months.  The most you would pay is $7100 for everything. Most hospitals have payment plans and some offer discounts if you pay cash. It's just a thought, but sometimes getting all your healthcare needs answered at once can relieve a lot of anxiety and be more affordable in the long run. I wish you luck. I hate insurance issues.
    • Hi all, I know this strand is a little old, but I just joined and have a related concern and wanted to express it in the right place. My period has been changing over the past two years or so. I used to be like clockwork, every 28 days. Now they come a little earlier and don't last as long, or they stop and restart, sometimes with some mid-cycle spotting. I've also been fatigued but that could have to do with work (I run my own business and teach on the side). I didn't make any connection with my celiac DX until yesterday when I was reading about peri-menopause. This month I got the heavy feeling in my legs and the sense that it was coming but... it never came. I thought I had a long time before I had to worry about the change! I'm 42. I've never missed a period, even when I was super-anemic. Ugh. Fortunately my mom said she never had any truly uncomfortable symptoms and she (still!) has the bone density of a much younger person. Hopefully I'll have the same experience. My yearly GYN appt. is coming up in July. Should I just wait and see, then say something to my doc then? Thanks in advance for any light you could shed on this.
    • You would think that there is enough people out there, people with celiac disease, that we'd be able to push for a better standard than 20ppm. The problem is the FDA. Too much lobbying involved. It's no different than the fight people are having with Monsanto. I hear that there are several medications that are showing promise in Canada who I think also has a better standard than us.(not positive about that though)
    • Make sure that you ask the doctor how long she has to stop the supplements before you have her levels tested and be sure to take them all with you when you have the appointment so the doctor knows what she is taking.
    • Talk to your doctor. With your family history and symptoms he/she may be able to diagnose based on resolution of your symptoms and family history. Also check with your local hospital if it has it's own lab.  Mine covered any labs at a greatly reduced cost based on a sliding fee scale. Did you have an MRI before they did the spinal? Celiacs with neuro impact will have white spots on an MRI that resemble the lesions found with MS. Many neuro doctors don't know this. I went through what you did and they did a spinal on me also based on the MRI results. If my doctor had know what the UBOs (unidentified bright objects) were I would have been diagnosed a couple years sooner than I was. Make sure if you supplement that you ask your doctor which ones you need to stop taking and for how long before they do a blood test to check levels. Sublingual B12 is a good idea when we have nervous system issues, but needs to be stopped for at least a week for an accurate blood level on testing. I hope you get some answers and feel better soon.
