Nope--everyone's special :D.

Click on "My controls". Then go to "edit avatar settings" on the side of the page. Then either upload a picture or pick one from the gallery! :)

Thanks for helping find out where to go, now I just need to figure out how to resize my own photo to get it down to 50KB, right now it's 1.8MB. I'll ask my husband tomorrow, unless it's really easy and somebody can explain how to use your own photo. :D

Okay. First you need to get it on some sort of a photo editing program. Do you have one on your computer? What program is the photo in right now? Then you need to "crop" it. To do that you usually click on a dotted square/rectangle option. Then you drag the square to fit it around the part of the picture you want to keep. Then you hit crop and the part outside the square is deleted. This gives you a smaller pic. If your husband can do it, you might just ask him about it.

I use Picsizer: http://www.axiomx.com/picsizer.htm

It is terrific!! Doesn't add any weird adware or spyware to your computer. It can make file sizes really small - WONDERFUL for attaching to emails, or sending over the internet otherwise.

I changed mine finally :) celiac3270 YOU SHOULD CHANGE YOURS! :)

Lol :lol: ....a few reasons why I haven't. First, I don't really have anything to put in its place. I don't have a cute dog (used to, but not anymore :( ) that I could use the way Karen does and I don't have any good digital pictures. And all the regular pictures have my family or at least by brother in them so if I scaled it to size, you wouldn't really see me anyway ;) . Also, I've actually become somewhat attached to my waterfall...lol :lol: . I've had it for so long that I feel it's something that's....easily recognizable. I see the waterfall and I don't even need to look at the user name.

So to what am I to change mine? And why? I'm not changing w/o putting up a fight :D

Hey, thanks everyone for the compliments!! I was never a cute kid... so I enjoy the vanity, vicariously (sp?) thru my daughter. *laugh* She is a princess. We just decorated her room. Bright pink (too bright, if you ask me!). Bought a package of Disney' Princess wall decor. 4 sheets, each about a square foot, with the depiction of a princess. Then, she has a princess bed wrap. it's makes her bed look like a carriage, whisking her off to the castle!

".... Oh no! It's midnight! As Cinderella runs to her carriage, she accidentally drops her gluten-free food lists! No time to get them! The next day, the prince sends his men out to find out: Who is the owner of these gluten-free food lists? They knock on the door of Cinderella's home. Her evil stepsisters try to deny that she was ever at the ball!! Cinderella brings out a package of Queen Pamela's gluten-free brownie mix, and they realize she is the woman they have been looking for!"

Awww, c'mon celiac3270, take a walk on the wild side!!!!! ;)

With you surgery giving you the gift of a whole new life, I think you should celebrate with a new avatar to mark the occasion....... Mmmmmmmm, lets see.........

Well, I think we are all going to have to collectively put our heads together and come up with a new "theme" for celiac3270!!!!!

Let's see, you like hockey....... what is your favourite team? Rangers or Islanders... Do you have a favourite player?

Or how about a picture of the sun at sunrise, to signify the dawning of a new day for you....... B)

Do you have a favourite cartoon character?

How about your dream destination.... if you could go anywhere, where would it be?

The possibilities are endless!!!!! :lol:

There are endless possibilites, but about the ones suggested so far....I love hockey, but I'm so annoyed at the strike and as much as I love the sport, a hockey player wouldn't be a...role model to me...I want to do something more intellectual with my life :D . Uhh.....I don't have any dream destination...don't watch cartoons, just reality tv :D:lol: . I could get a pic. of a sunrise from the good old avatar gallery, but that would quickly become as dull as this one :P . I'll think of it and see if I can get a picture of myself or something....It'll be difficult to part with my good old waterfall, though :(

Congratulations, Mela :)

      Hi Cristiana, You are quite right, there could be something wrong with the batch. I have often wondered this myself when I've had symptoms. A lot of manufacturers recall products when they find contamination issues, I often wonder though, how many products 'sneak' under the radar and no-one knows for sure; it could be the reason why so many of us wonder what we did to get 'glutened'.

      Thank you everyone. I have scheduled a second opinion. He last biopsie came back and he is lactose intolerant.     
    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
