It seems everyone reacts a little differently. I was diagnosed with Celiac 9 months ago and had my first "glutened" experience about a week ago. It took about 12 hours after eating something from Chili's gluten-free menu to get sick. It was a severe reaction. The whole experience lasted 7 days. Just getting better today. I took something called "gluten flam" which I ordered online to help my digestive system. All I can say is, it wasn't fun and not eating out for a long time.
Hi All, My name is Pat and I live in Orange. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in January of this year. What a pleasant surprise to get on this site and see OC represented. I've read about some groups locally. Does anyone know if they are open to others? I'm sure we've all had lots of experiences we'd love to share. It's always helpful to hear what others with celiac have gone through and how we can help each other. I went to Ruby's in Orange by the train station this week and hope to be posting about that soon.
