      Abby, thank you! Great ideas !! Glad to hear about progresso soups. I'll definately get a good thermos. She may like the mini pizza as well. So are all corn tortillas safe... U just made me think a taco night may be in order...

      Thanks. Making things from scratch is not my specialty. Bread is definitely something I'd try. Do I need a bread maker? I have never made bread from scratch before. I think I would make a couple loaves and freeze them.

      Expensive Gluten-Free Food
      Is there anywhere to get coupons? Any shopping or money saving ideas anywhere? My husband and I both work full time but our budget is TIGHT. Luckily my mother offered to do a gluten-free shopping for us after we saw the dietician or I don't know what we would have done. School starts soon and she will need lots of snacks and packed lunches. I'm really hoping she gives bread another try because I don't know what else to pack her.

      Hi it's me Kelly. I posted in the Coping forum. I am married with 3 girls 16, 13, and 11. My 11 yo has celiac disease and has been gluten free 6 days.

      She hasn't been sleeping well, I assumed it was due to being upset with her diagnosis but she's had headaches, tummy aches off and on ( will say her tummy feels fine, even great then an hour later has it be upset.) She is complaining about 'starving' 'hungriest ever been ever'. I guess this is withdrawal?? How long will it last??? She's miserable

      She had planned on going camping with her best friends (they're sisters) and there family next Fri-Mon. Yesterday she told me "mom I can't go." It will be her 1st time camping and honestly I would hate for her to miss it, she was excited before but I'm not even sure what food to send. Is it unfair to her friends parents? She won't eat gluten free bread. Any ideas? Will she still have withdrawal symptoms in a week?

      Thank you everyone for the replies , hugs and support! She was thrilled with dinner Monday night. We had 1 of her faves bbq chicken. Last night I messed up a gluten free pasta so she had leftover chicken. But she woke me up last night saying she didn't feel well and vomited once. She fell asleep soon after and has been ok since. Why did that happen??

      This is really heartbreaking to me. And overwhelming. It is tough trying to stay positive when my husband gets more upset than she does as we find more and more things she can't have. "the kids gonna starve to death!" I have two older daughters who will be tested too but other than my 13 year olds asthma they are both perfectly healthy. Kinda hate to rock the boat. 17 yo has been tryin to cheer her up. Even my 13 yo trouble has too until yesterday " I'm not eating that pasta!" this is what I deal with. I feel lost and alone. Sorry to sound so dire.

      Those coco pebble treats sound amazing. I think she will enjoy that, thanks! And the sleepover idea? I love it! I'll bring that up with her today... maybe in a few weeks when we have a few more meals under our belt.

      Again, I really appreciate your support. I want my bubbly happy go lucky daughter back. I just want her to be healthy and happy.

      Thank you,

      She has not been cheating. In fact the thought of something damaging her body terrifies her. She's very health conscious. But at the same time she's angry and doesn't want to eat the new food. "Nobody wants to start 6th grade being a freak!"

      Discouraged And Worried
      My 11 year old daughter was just diagnosed on Friday. She has not taken well to the news at all. She has been moody & angry ever since. What bothers me the most is she is not eating well at all. On Friday after work my husband picked her up a gluten free pizza and chex cereal. She hated the pizza. She didn't eat the rest of the night. The next day she had some cereal & liked it. We went to the store & got a few things. She was not interested in picking anything out except for brownie mix that she hasn't touched yet. She wants to make it herself but keeps saying she doesn't feel like it. She tried making toast, she hated the bread so she ate more cereal. All she ate today was cereal & a few strawberries. She wont eat! I don't know what to do. We are seeing a dietician Wednesday. Oh, wait at Old Navy today in the check out line she was looking through the impulse items & found an almond coconut bar labeled gluten & wheat free. I let her get it of course & she liked it. Other than that she has only eaten chex.
