    First Party Bringing My Own Food

    Thanks guys, good to know I'm not alone!

    First Party Bringing My Own Food

    Next time someone gives me that look of pity I'm going to say, I like to eat healthy because it makes me feel great, like I'm in my twenties again. I don't think I'm going to say anything at all about what I "can't" have. I'm going to...

    New Nutritionist Is Helping Me

    Sure. It seems that many people who suffer with C have a problem with having enough moisture in their colon, even though they drink enough water. She told me she had helped others like me, and it helped me too. She suggested supplements...

    First Party Bringing My Own Food

    I don't think I explained this quite right. My friend wasn't giving me a hard time, she just felt bad for me because I couldn't enjoy the things others could. It was my first time at her house and a very small gathering, mostly just her...
  6. I finally found a healthcare professional who is helping me get better!!! She's the Nutritionist on the Celiac/GI team at UCLA (but I see her through her private practice for a lower fee). She has Celiac herself (I'm NCGI) and was willing...
  7. Today was the first party I've been to bringing my own food, and the first party I've been to in 3 years - that's how long it's taken for me to feel well enough to go to a social event since my food intolerances began - quite a milestone...

    Is A Celiac Dx Necessary?

    Yes, I was wondering about that too, something to consider. Thanks.
  9. I already know I'm gluten intolerant. I'm wondering how important it is to have an official Celiac DX, and I could use some opinions. I just went to see a new GI at UCLA who specializes in Celiac/Gluten Intolerance to address my ongoing...

    Discussing The Newbie 101 Topic

    I just wanted to mention in the list of blood tests to have/vitamin + mineral levels to have checked, I noticed vit D wasn't on the list, and I'm pretty sure that's an important one for all of us to watch.

    Life Savers Candy Made Me Sick

    That's so discouraging. The only way I keep making it through this is to try and stay positive and hope for the best. Just the thought of still being sick after five years is more than I can stand to think about right now.

    Abnormal Screening Mammogram...worried

    I had the same thing happen, exactly, and it was nothing... but anyone would be terrified, of course. Sometimes, with dense tissue as I also have, they just want to be sure by taking an ultrasound. Then they have something to compare it...
  13. I know, Life Savers making me sick, it's ironic… I had a moment of weakness in the grocery store. I had some hard candy before that was made in Germany that I ate sometimes, just sugar, a few ingredients, never had a problem. I can have a...

    Brain Fog Is A Curse!

    She may not have even noticed, and if she did, probably wrote it off as "oh, he probably didn't get enough sleep the night before, or something like that." Next time you see her, you'll be starting all over again. If you want you can say...
