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.... :)

    • Your body has been used to ingesting and has been coping with the gluten in its systems.  DON'T PANIC because your body is doing it for you.   Seriously now, the medical field has a technological term defining when a system is used to working a certain way/routine.  When that is either disrupted or changed, it could take a while for the body adjust to a different way of doing things.  Another factor in the increase in symptoms could possibly be that your body is starting to "clean house".  It's trying to get rid of the amounts of gluten hiding out in all its nooks and crannies.  It is going to be a long term process.  It's like cleaning out a vacuum hose or other household item that is just caked with gunk.  The first cleaning gets rid of a large portion of the gunk and ick.  The subsequent cleanings gets rid of more and more ick but in lesser amounts. I thought I was going to go crazy those first few months, but things are a lot better now. (I am about 10 months gluten free).  I still have moments of brain fog and even episodes, but my body is getting closer (and more used to)  to having a cleaner "household item".  I know it's tough at first with the increased onslaught of symptoms, but hang in there.   You may want to keep a journal of all that you ingest or come into contact with for a time to track anything that could exacerbate symptoms.  (For me, my episodes are chemically triggered as well.)  If for some reason a few months down the road, you still have large amounts of symptoms it would be a good idea to visit your GP again just in case there something else that is going on.  
    • I would love some help! After 20ish years of being misdiagnosed with IBS, I was diagnosed with celiac disease (positive blood test for tTG IgA and positive duodenal biopsy) ~ 6 weeks ago. Of course I've gone completely gluten free, and I've been crazy paranoid careful not to ingest any gluten. I've also completely avoided all oats (even certified gluten free) and cut out lactose (due to transient lactose intolerance... because I don't have villi) . But now I feel WAY WORSE. I've had abdominal pain every single day, which ranges from mild aching to severe 10/10 laying on the floor crying and vomiting pain. I understand that it takes a long time to get better, but why would I get so much worse? My best guess is SIBO, but I can't imagine that it could cause such extreme symptoms, can it?  So my question to you fine folks is: did this happen to anyone else? Have you gotten sicker after you changed your diet? Is this normal?  For arguments sake, lets assume that I did not ingest any gluten to cause these symptoms... Thank you for your help!
    • Thanks very much Cyclinglady. Yes, it is Kaiser. I doctor said the GI think it is unlikely to be celiac deisease (he did not say how he came to this conclusion), but he would be happy to do an upper endoscopy for me. I did some look up online, this procedure should be low risk. Still feel a little hesitate while reading the potential risks :(.
    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Sorry.  Something is wonky with either my connection or celiac.com! Your results are not specific...borderline.    That is why your PCP should refer you to a GI for further celiac blood tests and a possible endoscopy.  I recognize the lab report form.  Kaiser?  If so, a PCP can not order a full celiac panel.  Only a GI can do so.  Why bother?  Because if you test like me, the TTG tests are always negative.  Request the EMA and the DGPS test via a GI.   Do not be fooled by a lack of abdominal symptoms.  I was only anemic -- no abdominal issues at all.  Constipation is a symptom.  Your PCP is thinking is just historical Classic celiac disease symptoms.   Please email your doctor for the referral if you think you might have celiac disease and want a solid answer.
