More Blood: For The Record

Blood always seems to grab our attention doesn't it? Not that that was my point in putting it in my title. I just grew up trying to make a good headline for my papers as that was something my dad always tried to help me with (he was a Chief Copy Editor for the Deseret News.)

ANYWAY: I went to the doctor again today to try to brain storm on what might be going on with my health. I know it's not just fibromyalgia, if at all. I Can Not be sick any more!!! My family needs me at full capacity. I'm praying that we have struck gold this time. We have concluded that it is highly possible that I have Celiac Disease (An autoimmune disease caused by a negative reaction to the protein in grains called gluten.) So I'll go give blood to test for: Celiac disease, Mono, Anemia, B 12, and Thyroid. None of these are fun. But for a person who has been sickly their whole life, a clear answer with a clear solution is WONDERFUL!

My neighbor down the street has had to limit gluten. She says everytime she eats things with wheat her stomach hurts so bad. Is that what is going on with yours? I hope they figure it out, it's no fun not to feel good or know why.

That is so frustrating when you want to feel better but you don't know what's going on with your body. There were times that I didn't care what it was I just wanted to know so that I knew how to manage it. I hope you find some answers! Celiac's would be a bummer but maybe it would help you on the road to feeling better.
