Before becoming disabled due to chronic pain, Jodi Cornelius was a bango-pickin’, backpackin’, tech editing, hard working dynamo. Read how her life has changed.


My Life As A Chronic Pain Sufferer

by Jodi Cornelius

Imagine, waking up one morning and discovering that your life has been slowly changing – and not for the better. Imagine what started out as an innocuous minor pain turned into a pain that keeps you from performing your everyday life without taking pain meds and muscle relaxers, anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications. Doctors shuffle you from one specialist to another because the neurologists say it’s orthopedic in nature yet the orthopedists say it’s neurological in nature. Here is my story…

Coping Skills: Special Diets

Diets Streamlined for Those with Disabling Chronic Conditions

(Revised) There are lots of diet plans to choose from. Each has its own claims to fame — or at least its promise of a more healthful eating lifestyle. Part of the problems with those diagnosed with syndromes and conditions like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Fibromyalgia (FM) is that not everybody experiences exactly the same symptoms. For example, some with Fibromyalgia have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS); others do not. Therefore, the same as not every treatment plan works for everyone diagnosed with CFS or FM, there isn’t a “one size fits all” eating regimen either. Many find they must match their diet with their (for lack of a better word) form of their disease, syndrome, or condition.

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet™ (SCD™) is a grain-free, lactose-free, and sucrose-free diet that was originally designed for Celiac Disease. Today the SCD is also used for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Candida, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Diverticulitis, Cystic Fibrosis, and Chronic Diarrhea. The SCD™ is proving helpful to many with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia as well.

The SCD was designed by Dr. Sidney Haas for his young Celiac patients. Years later his son, Dr. Merrill Haas also joined him in his research and together in 1951 they published a book called Management of Celiac Disease.

Elaine Gottschall popularized the SCD after her daughter successfully used the diet in the late 1950s to recover from Ulcerative Colitis.
