So many people are thinking that the photo in Lynne's avatar is of Lynne. It is a little of her. She is the one on the left. She is a MUCH younger woman then me (I am in the center of the photo). She is also a very pretty woman with a bright, happy and wonderful smile. On the right is broncobux (Chris) who is certainly better looking then this photo shows. We were all having fun in Las Vegas (where Chris lives).

I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD LET LYNNE KNOW THAT WE WOULD LIKE HER AVATAR TO BE A PHOTO OF HER. Just so everyone will see what this special young woman looks like. You should all PM her and let her know.

It would be terrific if you took a photo of her tomorrow. I really don't know how good she is on doing avatar's. I personally can't do mine. Maybe she could change her password temporarily and you could change her avatar with the new photo. Then she could change her password back. That is what I did for Floridian to put the ostrich up for my avatar. Hope you two have a great visit.

Ya know, I was wondering who those other gorgeous, happy people were. I knew it was from your recent trip, but never asked.

Not that anyone else here (dozens?) need to put up a picture.

No presha.

Thanks Jen for taking pics of Lynne. When I talked to her last night, she told me about the fabulous lunch you had and that your Mother is so nice. She had a great visit. She said she would put up one of the pics that your Mother took. I really envy the members that live so close to each other.

Yeah, it is a real blessing. We have several local groups in Indy, but I've also been able to get together with 3 people from the forum--always fun :)

Beverly -- that is NOT FAIR!!!!! You guys . . . . Jen will e-mail me the pictures, I WILL post one of them as my avatar. I am ALSO trying to get pics from Ashley's wedding from the friend of hers . . . . that way, you can actually see me with real make-up, my hair done (although it was VERY foo-foo -- and PUFFY) and dressed nicely!

Don't know what the interest is . . . I'm not anything spectacular. Kind of plain, overweight and not happy about it, but I am growing long luxurious blond hair (a goal since I was a kid). When I was little, I HAD blonde hair . . . . then it got darker and darker and darker. Then, what do you know? It got little white strands in it . . . and began to get lighter! So, I figured if it was going to get LIGHTER -- then it might as well be BLONDE lighter vs. SILVER lighter! Then, I really did myself in . . . I started growing it out so that I could wear it up for Ashley's wedding. Needless to say, Dave likes the long luxurious blonde hair!! (Although, he did think it was a little hot when I was a red-head!)

Talk to you guys soon, and maybe you'll SEE me (other than Jen & Armetta -- oh yeah, and Beverly with the picture).

You need to know . . . I tried to put my baby picture as my avatar, but it wouldn't re-size correctly. You didn't state AT WHAT AGE you wanted to see me!

Yea, it's evident from the other Vegas pics, you just can't see it in this one since you can't see her.

Yes she is beautiful -inside and outside. She is also in her very early 40's and looks like she is late 20's - how wonderful that is. Her skin is beautiful and youthful looking. Heck I could go on, but you get the idea and hopefully we all get a picture.

    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      Do you take digestive enzymes and probiotics? That may help. Have you met with a dietician for help figuring out how you're getting glutened?
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      You should read the book' Jennifer's Way" you might find her story similar.  You will find better health- but be patient- it's an up and down road and takes a long time! For me it's been 7-8 months and I'm not well but slowly improving I hope
    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      Hi Everyone I am new here and wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing the same thing I am.  I was diagnosed positive for celiac in 2/2016 via biopsy from an endoscopy.  I was negative for blood work because I self-eliminated gluten 9 months prior; so I guess I had not antibodies register in my lab work.  Prior to 2/2016 I was having symptoms for almost an entire year.  Despite cutting out grains in general for 9 months, I would have a gluten attack at least once a month.  I have had a history of sinus, bronchial infection.  I remember as young as 17 getting sick but I always bounced back and was active in sports and working out.  But in the past year I developed the following symptoms - Sudden desire to pass out, nausea, headaches, heart palpitation, crashing exhaustion as if I was recuperating from the flu, wheezing in my chest. I was bounced around to an allergist at this and was told I was asthmatic and I had food sensitivities to dairy, nuts, corn or corn derivatives (including corn syrup) and grains.  so I cut everything out!  Despite cutting everything out I was still have episodes at least monthly, possibly cross contamination.  In April 2015 I traveled to the Carribean for 2 weeks,  I became very ill with a urinary tract infection, stomach bug and severe back pain with constant fever.  I was treated with antibiotics (Bactrim) for 10 days which did clear up the situation. I came home and dismissed everything to a coincidence.  Six weeks later the GI distress woke me up in the middle of night.  The pain was so excruciating that when I sat on the toilet thinking I had to go, I almost past out from the pain.  I lay myself down on the floor until it subsided.  The next day I contacted my primary and was immediately seen.  She referred me to a GI specialist but the appointment was not until August.  Then 2 weeks before my GI appointment they called and rescheduled for late September.  I saw him and by then I was feeling better; no epsides for almost 2 months.  So we did nothing.... boy did I talk to soon.  Immediately after the appointment I had an attack.  These were the symptoms: Nausea, crashing fatigue (as if I was hit with the flu), diarrhea, dizziness,, loss of appetite,  lower back pain, specifically in the middle; intestinal discomfort and body aches which lasted 10 days!! and abruptly disappeared, thank God.
      . I had to wait to see the GI until 1/2016.  Once I saw him he did labs which were all normal.  He checked my liver, kidney, pancreas, blood count which was all normal.  He also scheduled the endo/colonoscopy for end of 1/2016.  Speeding forward in time....since the Endo/Colonscopy procedures, I had attacks January through March which last 7-10 days each time.  I finally had a break for 2 months and today as I type this I am on day 6 of another episode.  What I wanted to see if anyone has experience the following.  For me each episode is getting worse with the following symptoms: Nausea (horrible), back pain on the left side both in the rib cage (the front and back) at times this pain also gravitates toward my left hip.  I also get diarrhea, bloating, intestinal distress, crashing fatigue and loss of appetite.  What really hits me hard is the rib cage pain that is in the front and back on my left side.  I will be seeing the GI doctor in August; but I am hoping to see him sooner Any input in reference to symptoms is appreciated.    
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Hi all  10 weeks ago i was diganoised with celiac with blood work and a endoscopy. I have had the worst 2 years of my life that started with blood being in my stool everyday. I have always suffered with anxiety for as long as I can remember but I always just pushed trough it. I then I started having panic attacks, insomnia and major depression that I could not handle, I could not function, I lost my job because I could not leave my bed, I shaked as I lay in bed everyday uncontrollably. I met with a doctor who put me on lexapro (antidepressant) I finally gave in after 6 months and started taking them, they made me worst than I already was so I had to stop after 14 weeks. Fast forward to 15 months later and the symptoms still persists including the bloody stools, I was in and out of hospital every week and told I had all sorts of conditions, then the blood work and endoscopy Finaly discovered the celiac. I have been on the diet now for 10 weeks, the first week my anxiety went away, the horrible knot in my stomach that I have had everyday, the hot flushes, the tingling I had run trough my legs. This all left but only for a couple of days then it came back, the depression also lifted but has now came back, I have been more than strict with the diet, I check everything twice before I eat it, me and the misses have thrown away everything from our kitchen and replaced it with new things. I had my Vitiam levels checked and I'm deficient in b12, Vit D, all B vitiams. It's like one step Foward 2 steps back in tearms of healing, I know these anxiety / depression feelings are not me but I've had them for so long that I can't seem to see light at the end of the tunnel. The couple of days that they left me when incredible I felt human and alive. Just wondering if any of this has happened to anyone else with celiac or gluten intorlance. Any advice or hope In tearms of healing or am I to feel like this for the rest of my life (I'm 28) by the way. Thanks a lot   
    • So I've been glutened....
      That sounds like a plan JMG.  If things aren't working then make a change, hopefully a positive change.  It seems to me we have more noticeable symptoms sometimes after being gluten-free a while.  I made a mistake last night and ate some tuna canned in water.  It definitely wasn't boring.  I usually have more sense than to eat tuna canned in water but screwed up last night.  They canned  it in broth of some sort.  Ingredients say vegetable broth and soy.  Yuck, not good for me.  It sure tasted good though, just ouch.  I am not saying it had gluten in it, but it does have soy and some kind of unnamed veggie monsters.  So it could be soy, or carrots or some other disgusting vegetable that got me.   Not all celiacs have additional food intolerances beyond gluten, but some do.  My gut could testify to that.  Anyway, if you have bloating, cut out all carbs and sugar for starters.  And try peppermint tea or Altoids.  Over here we have something called Pepto Bismol that helps soothe gut pain and another neat thing called aspirin.  And gluten-free beer as needed.

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
