Hi Ronna and WELCOME! :D

The gluten-free diet may seem overwhelming at first but it does get easier, I promise! Here are some helpful links that you may want to check out and please feel free to ask questions either on the board or through email.

Hi Ronna and Welcome!

I was diagnosed in March and felt exactly the way you are feeling. Let me tell you, it does get easier. I look at this web site, daily, and get so much support from everyone out there. This forum is like having "friends" all over the world who you can talk to, who know what you are going through. I wish you good luck on this new way of life.

And I will add two more Celiac related forums that have been invaluable to me in the month or so since I was diagnosed:

http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/SillyYaks/

http://forums.delphiforums.com/celiac/start

I want to strongly suggest that you not start by buying a bunch if gluten-free substitute breads, cookies, etc. (junk food, basically) and stick with eating whole foods as much as you can: meat you prepare yourself (most pure spices are okay but watch out for spice blends), veggies, fruit. Simple at first, then you can start adding in other stuff. (The substitutes are all quite expensive, also, so that alone should discourage you to some degree!)

Read as much as you can. Not all of it will be applicable to you, but use your judgement to cull what you can use. The sites above both have great food lists and other info that, in my opinion, is much better than this site.

Post when you have questions. The forums are great!

Hi Ronna

You have come to The Right place. Everyone is so helpful here and so knowledgeable. Glad you got the Computer. It makes finding out about Celiac so much easier - I dont know What people did before the PC.....

being gluten-free does get easier - there are lots of "regular" products That are gluten free. Stick to the basics, meat, chicken, fish, rice, potatoes And veggies and Fruits and develop your list of other things that you can eat.....

Good Luck
