challenging for you since being diagnosed with this disease?? My thoughts are: learning to read food labels and understanding what they mean. It gets to be a challenge anymore to find some really good food. My other challenge is explaining it to other people who don't have a clue. And I want to wring their necks when I am done talking to them. Am I alone or is this normal??

Labels are definately a problem. Finding food that is gluten free and tastes good is a problem too. I am trying desperately to eat better though. I was eating tons of junk food when I was first diagnosed and I put on 7 pounds. I am now trying to use this as an advantage to be very healthy. No more junk!!! I think that my biggest problem is my Dr. I haven't heard from him since I was diagnosed. I am switching gastro's and hoping for better luck.

Take care,


PS this new format is still confusing me.
