Accommodation In Australia

3 posts in this topic

Well, you never know where you can end up finding answers to life's big problems.....In the years that I've been here, you wonderful forum members have often come to my rescue. So I figured that some magic just may happen here, again, with a very different subject matter.

My twenty year-old daughter has been accepted into an exchange program for one semester of her third year at the University of Ottawa -- she is heading to the University of Sydney (I still cannot believe this -- thousands of miles away) from February until the end of June 2014. Truly, my little girl has grown up.  :wub:   :(

Everything is set -- she's had her acceptance letters from both universities. BUT.....she cannot find accommodation. She was not accepted into the international residences on campus (too late), and the satellite boarding seems to be all booked. She is really stressed out, trying to find apartments close enough to the campus that fit our budget -- boy, this is one popular university....very little available that we can afford. It's very tough doing this from Canada, I tell ya! She's on the university website, checking out everything that they advise.  So far, no luck. :( So I'm wondering if anyone has any advice, any contacts, any leads or wise words for my daughter as she looks for a place to live in Sydney, Australia from about February 20th to June 30th 2014.  Any celiac Aussies on here, looking for a sweet, bubbly, studious student to board with them for four months?  ;)

That's awesome, hope she finds a place. My brother recently moved to Sydney (just a jump over the ditch for us) he loves it. Try checking on Facebook, there's probably a Sydney buy/sell page she could post on about finding a place.

Good luck!!

Looks like she's found something.....thank gawd! :rolleyes:   She's gotten into an off-campus residence, a fifteen-minute walk to classes. Just about anywhere in Australia is going to offer a much nicer commute to school than here in an Ottawa January.....  <_<  The only glitch is that she's got the room on March 1st, but will be arriving there Feb. 24th, so she'll have to do a hostel for that first week or so.

Oh, to be young....

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
    • AdrienJ, thank you so much! I dream of traveling more one day. I have spondylitis too. I'm so glad that a gluten free and casein free diet is helping you feel your best!
    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
