  1. Hi, I'm trying to meet new people along the front range, from Denver to Fort Collins, maybe up to Cheyenne - I'd love to start a monthly potluck group, dinner out, or just meet some new friends. Please let me know if anyone's interested, Kim aka southgoingzax
  2. Hi Cheryl, There don't seem to be any CO celiacs on this site - I'm up in Fort Collins, so I don't know if I'd be any use to you. If you're still out there, somewhere in cyberspace, post and let me know how you're doing. Kim
  3. Anyone in North Colorado? I would love to meet some new people, start a monthly potluck, dinner out, or something! I am in Fort Collins but am willing to travel as far as Denver, so if there's anyone out there wanting a new celiac friend, let me know, Kim aka southgoingzax
  4. Hi, I was thin before going gluten-free, eating/hungry ALL the time...I have, since going gluten-free (nearly three years now) lost that compulsive, must-eat feeling, but I did gain 15-20 pounds...I am starting to lose a few pounds just recently, so I think I am maybe finally getting the hang of how much to eat. It's hard to change how much food your brain thinks you need, and I was so used to feeling like I HAD to eat... As far as cookies go, there are some pretty great mixes, to start out on the less-complicated side (Pamela's, for one). I'd check those out for flavor/texture before heading out on your own. Good Luck, zax
  5. I don't think I have a rash reaction to medication, but I used to get a tiny raised bumps-rash on the side of my face and neck was really itchy and I could never figure it out, but since going gluten-free, it hasn't happened. I have intestinal-symptom celiac, and I never thought about having DH type symptoms, but for me the rash certainly seemed to be gluten-related - nothing seemed to relieve it or make it go away faster, either. If it itches, try clear calamine lotion to temporarily reduce the symptoms, or maybe zyrtec...I try not to worry too much about it unless it's really painful or doesn't go away in a few days. Sorry you're having to deal with this. zax
  6. Erica, What are you doing your research on? I have found this thread very heartening...I too am going through some real struggles right now, and I'm glad to see someone forging successful changes - it gives me hope. Thanks for posting this personal process! zax
  7. My's a grass, and safe to eat.
  8. DO NOT EAT THIS! As far as I can remember, Teff is an ancient type of wheat - I'll doublecheck to be sure, but I don't think it is gluten-free. Zax
