  1. I'm starting to feel ready to branch out a bit, so I'd love some help finding restaurants that do well with celiacs and food allergies! :- D I'm kinda getting bored of pizza (Only thing I had at restaurants for two years. O.o Suprising.)   I do know of Jules Pizza (Not San Joaquin, but it's worth it if we go to Whole Foods), and BJs Brewhouse. Is there anywhere else that I could go and try?   I would need gluten // soy // nut // sesame // citrus // oat // coconut free food, so most places are out. x_X This was so much easier when it was just gluten-free.
  2. Hi there!   I've been gluten-free for a good... Nearly two years now (With a summer off for a pointless blood test, worst summer ever. >:- | ) I'm in Northern California, I'd love to talk to anyone else around here that's working through Celiac's! x_X Or any other food allergies, don't get me started on my list, no fun. X- P
  3. This Happen To Anyone Else?

    I've had this exact thing happen to me as well. x_X I went to the beach for a long weekend with my best friend and her family. I had told them that I would bring my own food (I don't just stay away from gluten, I've tested postitive {and react to} seven more major foods), but they wanted to be nice, and they got an entire bag of gluten-free stuff that I couldn't eat (Usually because of soy). They were pretty nice about it, and they've told me that if I ever come with them again, to give them a list and they'll find more that I can eat when I come with them, but I'm thinking I'll probably just bring my own anyway, since I have it on hand, and it's not the cheapest out there.   I can't imagine going through this with someone I didn't know as well as my best friend, just because I know her and her family, and I could see that they started understanding after that (AKA I haven't been offered a gluten cupcake anymore, since my best friend's sister is a baker).
  4. Hahaha, luckily, not just yet, I get out of school before lunch anyway through my schedule, but I'll have to look into the college thing, I wasn't aware that I might have to work it wout with college, but I'll look into it (Not quite sure where I want to go anyway, this is going to be a factor, I guess. x_X ) I was worried about having to go back to gluten, but since you're saying it may not be necessary, I think I won't tackle it until it is really getting to be a problem (Which I haven't seen so far)   Thank you so much for answeing my question. :- ) I'm just kinda lost x_X
  5. My doctor is apparently not willing to do anything for me, and I've just been wondering about this for a little bit.   I've been on a gluten-free diet for a little under 2 years now. I went gluten-free with a friend that did have celiac disease, and recognized some of her own symptoms in the problems I'd been having. I felt so much better that month, that I knew that gluten had to be a problem for me. However, when I tested (I went back on gluten for a month, then had a blood test done), it came back negative. However, that month was horrible for me, and I went back on the gluten-free diet after the test.   So, I've been reading that blood tests aren't the end-all, be-all, and that endos or other tests are much more conclusive. However, my doctor didn't really jump at the idea when I presented it, and now I'm wondering, how much would the 'label' help me? Yes, it would let me know exactly what was happening to my body if I decided to eat gluten, but otherwise?   Some of my symptoms before (Pre-2 years ago, going on for... years and years...), flatulance, nose bleeds, what I'm suspecting was a slight case of osteoperosis (never got it -confirmed-, but I mean, I broke my finger catching a not-too-stong basketball pass.), something that the doctors called excema, and a few more things.   Could I get some help, please? I don't feel like my doctor understands, not that she cares either, and I'd like some more ideas of what my next step should be.
