"silly ass" ... it makes my jelly belly jiggle.
Welcome to the team. I gotta say, I've read a ton about celiac and often find papers regarding gf for Crohn's - I was over in the IBS group for the longest time trying to share, but felt the info was very ignored. Very. I need to take a marketing class or something! :) Of course, I've also read of co-morbidity (not a friendly sounding word). So sorry! Crohn's is awful. Glad you've been controlling it (how exactly)?
KNOWLEDGE = POWER. BODY = TEMPLE. FOOD = MEDICINE. PREVENTION IS THE CURE. YOU ARE WHAT YOU ABSORB!
One person's food is another person's poison.
Celiac Disease: An autoimmune reaction from eating gluten grains: wheat, rye, barley and contaminated oats=nutrient deficiency=cancer. Have 1 of 300 symptoms? bit.ly/cdsymptoms
CD stories: bit.ly/cdstories
Now that's one joke I am going to remember! Aren't children the greatest?!!!
I'm Karen too!! Here's some humor for you... my 5 year old great-nephew heard the adults discussing my Celiac and what things I could and couldn't have to eat. My niece had invited us for dinner and fixed a really nice one, loaded with biscuits, gravy with flour thickening and lots of pasta salad amongst the smorgy. Kaleb tugged at his mom and said why does aunty have a "silly ass" disease. We all just about came unglued. It was too funny.
Good luck going gluten free, it's a challenge.
My thought is: Focus on being GF for awhile. That is enough of a challenge, though it gets easier. I have not been able to shed pounds very well since I became GF. But you can't be perfect in everything all at once! Just be kind to yourself, and do what you can. You'll achieve your goals in time. And meanwhile, you should be feeling a lot more comfortable in your body. That's a big plus.
Hi - I'm Karen and have Crohn's Disease (diagnosed in November 1991) - but was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in March '08. I currently am on a few different medications and am having the worst time losing any weight. The Crohn's Disease is dormant at the moment, so that's a good thing - but this having to remain gluten-free is quite a challenge. I would greatly appreciate any advice, wisdom, and/or humor anyone has to offer to make accepting another autoimmune disorder in my life more tolerable.
Thank you for reading!
