Hi Bella,

The new board switched over at the end of December. It takes a bit of getting used to, but the new features are good. I think the best feature for me is being able to send e-mails or personal messages directly to other people on the board. It is certainly a lot easier than it used to be. If you have any specific questions and need help, please post them and we will try to help you out. Welcome back! :)

God bless,

Mariann

I still cannot get all of the messages, I only see about 2/3rds of each message and

cannot see the introductory message of the topics. I am so sad because I loved this

board and wth wonderful people on it. I will keep trying. hadafish, formerly known

as glowmore. Jan, Marin, California

Jan,

Don't feel bad I had a lot of problems at first. When you said you could only see

2/3 of the message, you probably need to center it by pushing the right arrow

at the bottom of the window, that's what I have to do. Hope this helps!

I think you will like it when you get used to it...

Hi Judy, thank you. I do push that button all the way over and still I only see only

one third of the original message and two thirds of the replies. I don't have this

problem on any other site. I am on an Imac. My husband says I have to get a PC

for it to work and true enough if I use his computer it is fine. His is for

business and I rarely get to be on. However, I am pleased that I can post and

that you can see my reply. Thanks again. This is better than not being here at all! I

love the site. Jan, Caifornia.

I've never been on a message board at all and am writing this to be sure this is how you post something.

Warpspeed, welcome to the site! It worked fine. Now you can look around and post any questions, answers or topics. It helps to look around first and see if there is already a topic you are interested in, and add to that. Again, welcome.

See you around the site!

God bless,

Mariann :)

How do you post events to the calendar??? Every time I try to "Add and Event", I get the message "This menu is disabled" - there must be a way because I see that other people have posted events, such as Celiac Walks and Support Group Meetings. Please help.

Hi Paula,

I have never tried to add an event to the calendar, but it seems to me that it would have to be cleared with the sites administrator before being added. I would suggest when you get to the disables menu page that says you don't have access to that feature, then click on the "contact site administrator" link and ask what you need to do to add an event.

Good luck,

Mariann

Why are some (most) postings signified as "Pinned"? I have been a member for a year or so, although I have written just a few messages. Some of the messages I did send I never saw posted. Thanks.

Flo,

When you post a new topic on the board, it goes to one of the last few pages, which may be why you don't see it. When a moderator sees it they have a decision to move it to another section of the board (for example, if you posted a recipe under the Coping section) or they can "pin" it. If a moderator pins something, it shows that they've read it and it's important and good to read. Pinning a topic also makes it so it cannot be moved. All unpinned topics stay on the last pages of the forum along with any "moved" topics....pinned topics are towards the front in order of date. Hope this helps.... :)

    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      Thank you! My PA said that she still thinks it's celiac....but I don't feel like she's fully explained why. Some people are hard to get a solid answer out of! I think I'm gonna get a second opinion somewhere else.....appreciate the feedback. Makes me feel a little less crazy

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hello Elle Among this online community you are not alone in either your symptoms or how you feel about visiting the doctor.  I for one understand the anxiety that you are going through, my own weird nerve stuff and other puzzling symptoms have had me really scared at times.   So much you are going through could very well be gluten related, it really could.   But if it isn't, in the end it is worth trying to find out what it is going on so you can get the treatment you deserve. After all, it could have a really simple, treatable explanation, once the doctors know what it is. I remember reading on another website something that has helped me with my own health anxiety - if one can summon up the courage to go and see the doctor, one should pat oneself on the back and be proud of oneself for doing the right thing.  I'm not terribly keen on the idea of being a proud person - but I think it was meant in the best sense, and it is always good to do the right thing, even if one does it afraid!  It always makes me feel that bit stronger when I'm in the waiting room at the doctors! There is lots of great advice above.  Do take it and make sure you come back if you need further support. There are some fantastic people here to help.        
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle......do you think you would have better luck obtaining a full Celiac panel from your GP or a gastro doc?  You really need to be tested for Celiac because of all your symptoms.  Many other people probably thought they were dying of some horrible disease because they had so many symptoms that docs ignored.  Very common problem for us.  Plus, your Mom has had "IBS" all her life.  I should add that IBS is not a diagnosis.  No one needs to be told their bowel is irritated......they already know that.  This is where the medical establishment, no matter where you live in this world, fail us.  They need to find the root cause and there always is one.  You also do not need to have any gastro issues to be a Celiac but you do have some, along with all your symptoms mentioned.  Anxiety is a huge problem with Celiac Disease and for many, it goes away just fine on the gluten-free diet, without need of meds...which should always be a last resort measure.  I have never had an anxiety problem in my entire life until after I was diagnosed with Celiac.  I may have had it but with all the other numerous symptoms I had, the anxiety may have gotten buried somewhere.  But guess what? On the extremely rare occasion when I am glutened or cc'd, I get major anxiety for about 4 days and then its gone. B12 is a water soluble vitamin so whatever you don't use, it exits the body in your urine.  It is pretty damn hard to overdose on the stuff.  I take a B vitamin everyday, very high quality ones and my B12 is usually in the high 600 range.  Optimally, it should be between 650-800 so yours was abysmal pre-supplementation.  Absorption can also be affected by PPI's.  You did notice improvement with the tingling sensation and fatigue once your levels were way up so take notice of that. My biggest advice is to get your mother and you tested for celiac, with a FULL PANEL. Then you'll have to wait and see what that shows. You could always trial a gluten-free diet if all testing is complete and the results were either negative or inconclusive. That sometimes happens with people, especially if they have Celiac's other cousin......non-celiac gluten intolerance.  This would be the best route to go with regards to your anxiety, unless it becomes disabling and you need meds, short term. Make sure you tell them that anxiety is a HUGE symptom of Celiac and it is not normal for younger people to have extreme anxiety like that, for no reason. Good luck to you and please call and make the appointment. I understand your fear....I hate doctors and it's pure mistrust. But sometimes you have to address a problem head on.    
    • newbie diagnosed mom - testing 8 yr old now
      good to know. I am not going for a biopsy. I do not have health insurance, i know i know please no political comments. My children do. My husband and I don't right now. If we lived in another state, we would have coverage. I just made an appt to do a full blood panel for my daughter this week. I would rather find some confirmation for her through a blood test, i feel a scope is too invasive for a child.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
