celiac sprue - Oh, by the way...

Okay, body. Now I'm just mad. Enough of this stupid shit. Get over yourself.

Just exactly when does it get to be too much? Too much to handle? Too much effort? Too much trouble to even try to keep up with the nonsense?

Biopsy results came back today. Thank goodness I love rice and potatoes, but I hate, hate, hate the idea of giving up my snaps pretzels, my eggs benedict, my girl scout cookies. Not to mention all the other things that contain wheat, or some other obscure source of gluten.

I know it is going to take some time to process this new "thing" that's happened. And I know that eventually I will do so, and will take advantage of all the resources available to me to help make this easier. But today? Today I want to hit every fast food place within fifty miles, shove two, three, four or six pans of brownies, cakes, pies down my throat, and follow it all up with a case of beer. And I don't even like beer.

Thank you. I'm feeling a little bit better about it this morning... still upset about having to give up my beloved Twizzlers and Snaps pretzels, but I suppose I will find other things that I enjoy.

How are you doing? Gettin' close now...

Sorry Ellen. I imagine having that disease is very annoying. Hang in there!

Thanks, Karen. I'm just so sick of this stuff. And today I got a call from the doctor's office to let me know my B-12 is so very low, they're making me do the starter plan all over again. Three shots next week (why they are waiting is beyond me), one a week for the following two weeks, and then monthly.

Not like I didn't disclose the disease when I got to their practice, either. They knew, and they still let it get this bad. Urgh!!

Hope your Mom is feeling at least a little bit better, and that you are starting to get some results from the medication.

Your post reminds me of the time I caught my mom (diabetic) sitting down with an entire pack of cookies. I asked her what in the hell was she doing and she said, "committing suicide". We laugh about it now but it wasn't funny at the time. Thankfully, she came to her senses and put the cookies up but she often gets frustrated and wants to just give up. She threatens to stop taking her meds and sometimes even does so. I have to watch her.

And oh, how I know that feeling. Some days I just want to rip my immune system right out of my body and throw it away.
