    Default Celiacs Disease

    Does anyone have this? I had to go for testing this week, was very scared it could be cancer (found a lump, but it might be a lymphnode).

    Anyways, I go in tomorrow to talk to the dr, but I was looking up celiac's disease and out of 24 symptoms, I have 14, and I have all the emotional problems, and I have the skin rash associated with gluten intolerance.

    So, I was wondering if I could get some personal feedback on this.

    Thanks

    I'm aware of that, but the skin rash that wont go away is kinda an odd thing.

    You know I'm a Celiac (it's Bonnie ). I don't know why you don't just msg me silly girl I put together a whole slew of information (and had to print out about 2 dozen copies for all the Celiacs dad knows. UGH). Next time you catch me online, msg me.

    DogsRule...I just did some reading on this, spurred on by your post. I hope everything works out for you. This doesn't sound like a very pleasant thing to live with.

    My cousin has just recently been diagnosed with it. Its not an easy thing to have, but you certainly can live with it.

    They were just here visiting and we made some minor changes in our routine to accomidate her special needs. I say minor because to me whatever we needed to do to keep her healthy was ok with us. We had to ensure that we had a jam for her, margarine,Penut butter,ect. She needed an unopened portion of each to avoid cross contamination.
    She uses rice crackers, and rice based (I believe) bread.
    While here for a family wedding, the hall was previously advised and they prepared special pasta(wheat/gluten free) for her and ensured that her portion of pasta sauce had been removed prior to the meatballs being added.

    Its an inconvenient allergy(for lack of a better word) but once the diagnosis is made and you begin to live that lifestyle my cousin says it becomes the norm for you.
    The diagnosis was the difficult part for her, oh and not being able to have that 9:00 pm bowl of cereal.

    Good luck, and keep us posted.

    It's really not a big deal. At first it's a bit overwhelming, because gluten seriously appears to be in EVERYTHING. But you quickly (re)discover things like whole foods and learn to adapt all your old favorite recipes. Most people that eat at my house don't realize that the baked goods don't have normal flour in them, or that it's actually rice pasta and not regular spaghetti, etc.

    There are a couple little things. Everything with regular bread is done on one counter and nowhere else. And I need my own toaster (I just use the toaster oven).

    Of all the things I could have had while I was going through diagnosis (fibromyalgia being one of those things), being a Celiac is one of the better options. No medication needed!
