I would love to join, although I can't committ just yet. My good friend who moved to Florida last September is back home that weekend for the first time since she left (and I have not been to visit yet!). So I am not sure what the plan will be and if I will be doing something w/ her that evening...

I will let you know next week if that is ok!

I live in Maine, but getting down to Boston on a Friday would be kind of hard for me until school lets out.

Oh for gosh sake's- I am a PITA- July 7th is my sister's birthday.

Depends where in Maine you are. I live in Portsmouth NH which is about an hour from Boston (but traffic going through the Hampton Tolls is bad on a Friday). We have GREAT restaurants like Radici which is italian but I have never once had a problem with them. Most of the restaurants here are very accomodating.

Hmmm... could anyone do a Thursday. Like Thursday July 6th? I'll just throw it out there.

I live in Southern Maine. Do you have ezpass? The tollbooths are a heck of a lot better if you can jump right past everybody waiting in line for change. I usually take the commuter rail to Boston rather than drive.

Hello everyone,

I don't actually live in your area, so I probably wouldn't be able to get together for a meal (I'm in PA right now), but my family does have a cottage in York Beach, ME and I'm going to be there for the next week. When we're there I spend a lot of time in Portsmouth, Kennebunkport, Perkin's Cove, Ogunquit, etc. I haven't been back there since going gluten free. Do any of you know of restaurants that would be accomodating? I notice that there aren't a lot of chain restaurants with gluten free menus in that area. I'll probably do a decent amount of cooking and packing snacks, but I know that my family will tire of doing that, so if you have any suggestions, I'd really appreciate it.

oh my gosh- I'm so jealous. Thaat's great that you are going to York Beach for a week. Portsmouth has the Outback Steakhouse which has a gluten-free menu (actually, I think they are techincally in Newington) but don't eat there as there are so many places in Portsmouth that are accomodating. Radici is wonderful- I've eaten there several times since going gluten-free and they have always been wonderful. I would suggest calling them in advance just to let them know. Also, the Dolphin Striker is very accomodating. Those are both a little on the pricey side, but worth it.

Let me know if you want other recommendations. Portsmouth also has Thai Paradise and Shalimar Indian both of which I've never had a problem with. I can try to find out about places in York too, but I know that Five-O in Ogunquit is very accomodating too. And go get a massage at the Cliff House if you're up for a little pampering!

Berneses,

Thanks so much for the recommendations! I'm really excited about the trip, and I'm happy that there are so many places in the area that are accomodating because my initial searches didn't turn up many results. It's great to hear recommendations from a local to really know where to go. Of course I know I can have boiled lobster and a baked potato almost anywhere, but I'd like to have a few other options as well. Thanks again!

Nicole

    • They are big on selling books -. They try to spam a lot forums and FB groups. why can't you eat nuts, nut flours, quinoa, hummus and beans? I think I missed that. Those are a good source of protein.  If you can't digest lactose look for a lactose free cheese - like one made from yogurt. at first,I thought life was over.  But with a few years of experience, I have found it isn't that big of a deal. It helps to have an attitude of "I am not here for the food.  I am here for the wine ( or the company . ). Also helps to not care what people think - "I don't care if you think it's odd that I brought my own lunch to the funeral luncheon. "( And it helps that my lunch looks better than theirs lol.)
    • Gracey, It am a mother and I am going to give you some  valuable advice.  You need to keep and document everything related to your health.  Every lab test result, notes from your doctor's visits, etc.  Why?  Because only you are your best health advocate (except for your mom).  Doctors come and go, but it is up to you to manage your health.   When I changed insurance and doctors, I had copies of all my medical records in hand.  My new PCP was impressed.  There was no doubt that I had celiac disease, fractures, Hashimoto's and diabetes, anemia, etc.  I had physical proof.  As an result, she was quick to refer me to a new GI  and order tests to measure my progress  (e.g bone scans).  My family health history chart helped not just me, but other family members.   So, find out if biopsies were taken during your endoscopy.  Get the pathologist's report.  See if your doctor checked for other issues besides celiac disease.   Hugs!  
    • I don't do grieving, bad enough for something that's been taken away in the past but to know my future is pretty much gone now just feels too much. The only time I've forgot about the unfolding nightmare was during my hour or so of sport so need to cling onto that at the moment or I fear going to a very dark place indeed. Yup that SCD site is terrifying, still can't make up my mind if they're giving out useful information to genuinely help people or using scare tactics to sell their books etc. 
    • I agree with all the advice you have been given.  It is excellent!   I just want to add that things will get better.  There is a huge grieving process to go through.  Do not fight it.  You have a right to grieve as your health and lifestyle will change, but you will adapt!  Exercise gently until you feel a bit better.  There is plenty of time to exercise hard later.  Taken this advice from a gal who just rode 40 miles (no biggie you say) this morning  on her bike through the Santa Ana winds (better known as the Devil's winds!).  But I am three years into my recovery.  I took it easy the first six months because I was anemic.  I teach few exercise classes, bike, swim and run and I am in my 50's.   The SCD website?  It can scare the (bleep) out of you.  There was one point that I took from the site and that was to stick to whole nourishing foods.  No rocket science -- just common sense.    
    • Thanks for the replies so far everyone, much appreciated Great, another doctor gets it wrong, how many more times can they make a mess of this diagnosis process?! Bloating had gone down a bit in these first few days of cutting the gluten so I guess expect that to come back. It's one way to have a farewell tour of the gluten foods I guess - if a little or a lot makes no difference may as well go all-in... The doctors didn't diagnose this at all, Google did. If I trusted in the health professionals I'd be blaming the symptoms all on stress and having counselling for it whilst the fire raged on inside me due to a clinical condition they'd missed. Just glad one of doctors agreed to run the test on second time of asking to keep me quiet as much as anything. Believe me I've read that newbie thread multiple times, as well as numerous others around the web. Been doing nothing but since Tuesday when the blood test results came back and each time I go into the comments sections a little bit more of me gives up inside. Seems so many don't ever heal and so many associated complications too. The reality looks bleak apart from a lucky few it seems. In the nicest possible way the vegetarian choice is non-negotiable, it's a core part of what I believe and the thought of eating any form of animal \ fish flesh would make me physically sick (sorry meat eaters) so will have to find some way around it, how I don't know yet. Perhaps lots of this... http://www.pulsin.co.uk/pea-protein-isolate.html The cooking bit is a concern as it's something none of us do well at home, adds to the feeling of being completely lost right now. I kick myself for the decision that lead to the stress as I could've avoided all this. The only thing I can cling onto there is that I was having some pains in the side before that time which I blamed on a muscle strain... maybe that was the early stages, in which case I could feel a bit better knowing it had just come on gradually. With the biopsy and gluten from what I read the villi take a long time to heal up so they'd still see that. With the blood test result as definitive as it was surely the disease is pretty much confirmed? How can it heal enough for non eating gluten to throw a biopsy result yet on the flip side take over a year to heal (that sounds like the best case scenario time-wise from what I've read). Not suggesting anyone is wrong for one second but need to understand how that works with what's going on inside to make any sense of this situation.
