About Me

I've been diagnosed with Celiac Disease since '97. Things did not get much better; and was finally diagnosed with Hashimoto's in 08, and (unofficially, with) Hypopituitary in 09. Living with multiple hormonal imbalances has been so difficult. I try to keep my sense of humour, though - it helps.

  1. I'm not sure how the comment thing works, so I responded to ohiovonda on her page in her comments. Just in case Ohiovonda is checking my comments for her comments to my comments.


  2. I was reading some of your older posts about Thyroid medications. I amcurious how that worked out for you?

  6. It's very depressing, I take really good care of my teeth, and I'm having gum problems. I developed burning mouth about a year ago (12 years after being diagnosed with celiac), and since then, my gums feel sore and inflamed on a regular basis. I've had gum recession and tooth sensitivity, plus wearing...
  7. I have ear problems, too. My eardrums have been broken (not purposely, though) several times, and I have scarring, as well. I developed tinnitus (constant ringing) about 15 years ago. Plus, I have otosclerosis, a disease which causes deafness. I probably only have about 40% hearing? Not sure. I wear...
