 Hi There My name is Nicole and I live in a very small town in Arkansas. I was diagnosed in May of 2011. It has been a struggle ever since. I am wanting to know if there is anyone in Arkansas? I think it might be nice to have a friend dealing with the same condition as I am. 

  I also want to know of any online support groups for myself and one for my husband it has been very hard on the family. I live in a house with 16 people and i am the only one with this and i am far from being respected so just making a simple meal it is a huge task. Most of the time i end up being contaminated. So i think some kinda of support group might help my family stop making jokes and show respect.

Hi RaccoonMama! I'm in very rural Arkansas too... not far from Mountain Home. Where are you? I'm the only celiac in our house, but there are only 2 of us... so cross contamination isn't much of an issue. The hard part, for me, is that it's slim pickings for gluten-free food available in stores. I can usually find Udi's bread and Tinkyada pasta, but they're pricey! I order pasta, bread mixes, and baking flour online which saves a tiny bit of $$.

 

Welcome! This place is THE place to be for information and support. Whatever question you have... peeps here have been there and done it and will have an answer or a suggestion.

I myself live in Mountain Home, I love living here! Just sad that I dont Know anyone with celiac. But Living in a small town my Mother who also is a celiac was worried about not being able to shop. I am not a meat eater so i am a pasta lover and i was VERY happy to have found Gluten-free noodles at Wal-Mart Made by Hartland. Just wish to have more friends with celiacs so that i can have someone to talk to and help me understand. I was diagnosed in may of 2011 and just in the past year was able to give up what has been hurting me and eat right but i am still learning. I need someone to help me and my family understand more in depth. Just in the past week have i learned that i have to change my hair and body care products so my body rashes can clear up. I was unknowingly using products with gluten in them.
