      Need Opinions: Living On Campus Vs Living At Home
      I'll be a freshman in the fall and I was blessed enough to get a full-ride scholarship to a private university. I can live on campus for free and be exempt from the meal plan because of celiac disease. The university is in my hometown, just 5 or so miles from my house. I'm leaning towards living at home, but, I'd like to hear opinions & experiences from other people.

      The only concerns I have is there's one bathroom per hall and rooming with a non-celiac (unless I can scout for a gluten-free roomie...)
      All my friends are saying living on campus for that "college experience" but, I'm not so convinced. I plan on joining SGA and pledging with Alpha Sigma Tau to get involved around campus.

      Any thoughts would be appreciated :]

      Female Issues.

      I was wondering if some of you ladies could give some insight. I've missed two my periods and the last period I had was in mid-November. It concerns me, considering my periods are extremely painful w/ heavy bleeding, lasting always 7+ days then suddenly there's nothing. For the past month and a half, I've experienced severe lower right abdomen pain and severe pelvic pain, that sometimes goes into the small of my back. Could this possibly be an ovarian cyst? There's no chance of pregnancy, as I've never been sexually active.

      I've also gained 20 lbs and had a bladder infection. I just went in Friday for blood work and an X-ray.

      Any thoughts would be appreciated :]

      Bahaha :] I feel the same way...then again, we're not use to snow here in TN.
      I love the snow because it rarely snows here expect on the plateau. It was a senior year miracle! We got snow days lol right before exams, too. Big stress relief.

      Hi! Welcome Ms. Skinny Chic :]

      I dealt with malabsorption from my diganosis date until after being gluten for a year and half. I really can't suggest anything but reinforce what everyone else has said. It's very difficult and takes time & patience to deal with. Hope the board proves useful.

      Let me know if you need anything else. Take care,

    14. Ashley added a post in a topic The Vomit Comet   

      I'm so sorry. I'm 18 and vomit violently as well when I come into gluten. Hopefully, nothing like that will happen to you again. I had an episode after going gluten-free for six months. I was feeling so deprived and it was my sweet sixteen. I didn't know at the time I would react so violently, so I slipped half a slice of thin-crust pizza. Two hours later and I was throwing up the rest of the night.
      Nothing seems to help me, I just have to let it run its course. I wish I had went to the ER though, I'm pretty sure I was near dehydration.
