Now that I know I have permanent damage to my digestive tract, everything makes sense. Why I’m always tired, why I get sick so much, why every second day it feels like I’ll get a stomach ache or experience reflux or nausea for no reason.
Up until now I always discounted it and how I was feeling because that’s what people around me did “you’re fine!” “It’s all in your head” “how are you sick again!” And I literally started to think it was all in my head and that I was making myself sick because I hadn’t eaten gluten that day and id been really good with my food, yet I still felt unwell. See that’s the thing with a chronic disease.. People eventually forget about it and fail to understand why you feel the way you do. It’s as if they think time makes it better. But it doesn’t, it’s a constant. You learn to cope better (eventually) but the symptoms and the damage will always remain the same. Eventually people get angry because they can’t help and eating out at places is difficult and eventually … You just sit at home and stop getting invited places.…
Coeliacs disease is a diagnosis I don’t actually wish upon anyone. And unless you have food allergies you won’t understand- I mean it. I’m not trying to be rude but you will just never see the full extent of what us food allergy peeps struggle with day to day. It makes me so anxious and I hate it.
There are worse things, of course. And regardless I am greatful for my life and the people and things in it… But some days are just harder than others, ya know.
