Today has been so slow and draining.


I think I need to vent and find support. I am having such a hard time with this new transition of my life. I’ve been waiting over a month for my biopsy on the 1st. Im ready to just cancel because I’m kind of terrified to be sedated and the more I think about it I feel crazy. Today has been so slow and draining. I feel sick all the time, some things upset my stomach more than others, ultimately by the end of each day I just feel icky. Maybe I’m just feeling more down tonight because I haven’t eaten today but the last time I ate I was icky all night long, I just want to sleep through the night. I have no intetest, complete lack of appetite for the last week. I have had to force myself to eat, I don’t even want junk food like ice ream or kettle cooked chips, I don’t want anything at all, none of my usual cravings are even present for several weeks. I can’t keep doing this but I’m miserable if I eat, I’m miserable if I dont. I’ve been dealing with so many tests and figuring everything out, so many symptoms constantly for so many years, I just need this to be over. My gameplan isn’t even certain currently. One step at a time? Im realising how angry I actually am to not have been taken seriously as a teenager. I don’t even know who I am if I’m not sick, I’ve constantly been dealing with something for nearly 15 years. I feel like being sick has made it impossible to even identify who I really am at this point in my life. I’m 24 years old and I feel like I’m having a huge crisis that no one else understands or even can see how big this is for me. I finally have answers but at the same time I have no idea what the hell is going on? Similar feelings from anyone else? Looking for support, I don’t want anymore “this is what you have to do” talk, all of this is too overwhelming because Idk how to live a normal life let alone do the right thing for my body, apparently it’s been trying to hurt itself my whole life and I didn’t know. Can I even trust it at this point.

  1. Mebeverine really helped me with stomach cramps and nausea also omeprazole.

  2. Awww I hear you. I have been sick my whole life too….I understand what you are saying and how you are feeling….It is very overwhelming, this group is great….it’s a great support any questions you want to know and your sure to get some positive feedback….just hang in there ((hugs)))

  3. It can take months before you feel better, hang on in there, just ask away and know that we are all with you

  4. Hugs, I loveIndian buffet, Afghanni, and Pakistani kabobs! No problems for me, throw in a mango lassi and i am happy! I hope you find your happinesss soon! Feel free to pm me anytime!

  5. Honestly, I have been where you are. I would bet many on this group can relate to you. You are 24 years old and it’s time to get your life back and enjoy it. Don’t be afraid of the biopsy, it was a breeze for me. It does take time to adjust to adjust both mentally and physically. I am officially 3 weeks gf dx celiac and I am starting to feel better than I have for 20+ years. You can do this! Sending you positive thoughts and prayers.

  6. The biopsy is literally nothing to worry about, I can promise you that, the hardest part in my opinion is eating gluten free all the time, your tempted by all the good food you used to eat. I do recommend finding other doctors for the other symptoms just in case they don’t solve themselves, like I have someone for my mental health and stuff, I’ve been diagnosed for years with celiac but this past year is when I got a hold of the diet, but all my symptoms are completely gone but I don’t feel as terrible as I did day one I can promise you that. Plus there’s a billion resources out there

  7. Except for the length of time you have been dealing with your issues, I could have written your post. I’ve been through hell the last few months trying to figure out why I’ve been so sick. I won’t tell you to hang in there (although you do need to). I will tell you two things that got me through. 1. You MUST eat and not stop under any circumstances. You cannot let your stomach lose its \

  8. I’m just so sick of being sick, and sick of figuring it all out, I’m too tired to do this. Thank you all, I appreciate it.

  9. I also can’t figure out why I have such a lack of appetite. Normally I’m ready for SOMETHING at some point
