Hi, I'm Kelly. I've been a celiac for about eight years now. I've never had a friend with it, so I was hoping to meet some teens on here that also have Celiac's. (:

19 - from MA.

I have to say I know how all you guys feel. But I think eventually, I just realized - that we are ALL actually alone. I know that sounds kind of depressing, but it's true. And it certainly does not have to be depressing. After I accepted that, I was actually happier than before I had come to that realization.

By becoming more independent and improving myself - I became more attractive than I've ever been. That in turn boosted my self-confidence, which in turn boosted my happiness.

I know a lot of issues seem to be tied to gluten at first, but eventually you'll realize - a lot of them are just life's problems. And I know it's especially hard for teenagers since most of us are kind of confused anyway (I know I was!) but things do get better. I can promise you that. I have only been gluten-free for 1 year and 3 months and the changes over the past 6 months have been absurd.

Hey! Well I'm Gintare. Normally referred as Gina. I actually have had it since about 5th grade. I remember I went to the ER multiple multiple times due to severe abdominal pain. Not one doctor knew what it was. So I recently started to do some research on my own. And I have come across "celiac disease". It sounded JUST like what I have been phasing with. So actually, just about 2 weeks ago, I went to get tested for the disease. It turns out I have it. Not to mention, I am also lactose intolerant and vegan. What a small range of food now! haha. How depressing. I literally look 8 months pregnant at night after I have foods with gluten in it. Its horrible!! XD

Hi, I'm 12 almost 13 and I started having problems when I was 5 and like you went to ER, Even the famous Cook Children’s Hospital in Dallas of which they took out my Gallbladder. Anyhow I was just diagnosed a year ago with celiac disease and have felt SO much better. I too am Lactose intolerant, I can tolerate sherbet though. I am so sensitive that I can't even have food that might be cross contaminated or I am sick. I'm in Texas btw.

Hey I'm 17 and I live in B.C. Canada. I've known that I was celiac for 6 years. I live on an island where it is pretty common, because everyone is so intouch with their health. My mom actually runs a gluten-free bakery, so thats sweet, but there are only 2 teens here that know they have it. And I want to meet some more teens who know how it is.
Anyone nearby?

Rebecca, 19. I self-diagnosed in Feb via diet change. No doctor could help so I just started looking myself. I live in Barrie, ON during the summer months, and in St. John's NL for the school year. Anyone in either province??

Hi
I am the mom of a 17 year old who diagnosed herself about a month ago after talking to a teacher at her school who had the same problems. My daughter is a competive irish dancer (about 8- 10 hrs practice a week) and has had exercise induced asthma about 10 years and stomach problems all her life. She was told two years ago she definitely had irritable bowel syndrome and to change her diet. Add more fibre they said. She felt somewhat better but couldn't get her exercise induced asthma under control changing from one puffer to another. A top child respirologist had no solution. She would dance in a competition coming off stage doubled over, gasping for air and wanting to throw up. FIVE DAYS without gluten she went in a competition came off stage short of breath because she had worked hard but besides that she was fine. Unbelievable!! She has increased her stamina and doesn't require her puffer nearly as much!
