  1. Thanks for the kind words and wisdom. I'm only 31 and I feel like I'm falling apart! I have let myself get down and a little depressed about it all here recently. I just want to be a good mom to my three children and a good wife to my husband. But I do feel that all of these ailments have started to control my life. I used to be active and happier but it's beginning to take a toll. I'm working on each thing as it comes. But it's getting increasingly hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
  2. I was diagnosed with celiac disease about four years ago and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about two years ago. I recently just had a sleep study done (because of sleep problems and exhaustion) and found out I have sleep apnea and TMJ. I was just wondering if anyone else has been diagnosed with the problems along with celiac as well. I'm about at my wits end.
  3. Thanks so much for the encouragement ladies! I have been struggling for too long. I'm only 31 and I feel much older because of my ongoing ailments. I just can't take it anymore. I have three kids and it was hard the first time around because they have all their "kid foods" like pizza, chicken nuggets, etc. I just broke down after a month on the diet and ate a pizza because I was in a hurry and didn't have time to cook a gluten-free meal. I let myself fall off and I just gave up. I guess I thought I'd go back to it eventually and I just never did. I am about to take this beast by the horns and tame it! LOL I know I can do it with a little support. I have a friend of the family who also has it and has been on his diet for about 4 years. He said he finally feels like he used to years ago. He got me connected to a local support group and I'm going to start going to the meetings. Thanks again for the words of encouragement!
  4. I hear ya. I'm sorry you're having so much trouble. I am too. Have they checked into fibromyalgia? I have been diagnosed with that as well as celiac disease.
  5. I was diagnosed about three years ago after complaining for quite some time about stomach issues, headaches, nausea, and fatigue. My doctor tested my blood and found that I did, indeed, have Celiac Disease. I tried to start the gluten-free diet and I lasted for a month or so and lost it. I just couldn't do it. It was so hard. I have eaten gluten just like before for the past few years and I am just getting worse. I went to the doctor with palpitations, heachaches, fatigue, nausea, skin rash, muscle pain, and other ailments. She got onto me for not being on the diet and told me I wasn't going to feel better until I got away from the gluten. I am starting the gluten-free diet again on Wednesday (after getting the appropriate groceries). I'm not looking forward to the diet but I am looking forward to feeling better. If anyone has tips, let me know! I look forward to making friends with some fellow Celiacs!
