Went gluten free as of the summer of 2009
I have also now declared doctors as not really very smart
(No offense to all the good ones)

Gluten is sneaky and not to be trusted...

Heyy Girl! :] I'm Helen. I'm 17! I self diagnosed in January of this year, Almost everyone on my moms side has Celiac and one aunt on my dads does and it still took a year to figure out what it was. I have been gluten free for 6 months now and I'm finding that its really not that hard now that i found amazing pizza!! I live in Kentucky and would LOVE to know some people around here with it! Even if your from other places though, I would love to chat..I'm a talker in case you cant tell! :] Hit me up some time!

Cassidy, 17&1/2.
I was diagnosed 12 years ago. That's before there was "all purpose gluten free flour". Baking was awful.
Actually, that was before decent bread... Our breadmaker made one very lovely doorstop before it was retired.

I like to talk, and answer questions. Oh, and making friends.
So hi (:

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.

Aeva, 18
I've had ongoing stomach issues my whole life. I got unofficially diagnosed a few years ago, gave up with no improvement and have now officially been told (yay bloodwork!) that I am, in fact, gluten intolerant. It's been about 4 months now, and I haven't seen that much improvement yet, although I've got a few other minor health things going on too, which prolly don't help.

Oh, and I live about 20 minutes outside NYC.

My daughter Kelly (14) was diagnosed about a year ago now and is doing much better although we've added IBS (especially dairy) to the mix of "bad" foods. We were given an amazing gluten-free dessert cookbook and she's been baking up a storm for us! chocolate cheesecake, chocolate pecan pie, brownies, banana cream pie, cakes, cookies..... Yum! She wants to open a bakery! Luckily most of her friends are very understanding and helpful, actually make her gluten-free things or check to see what she can eat for sleep-overs. She's gained weight, has so much more energy and personality! You are not alone and lucky to have gotten diagnosed now. I'm 45 and finally got a diagnosis in Feb. of this year after having stomach issues since I can remember. My mom died of a celiac related cancer so I'm so glad I have a fighting chance!

I'm 19 and I live in the Seattle, WA area.. I've been very strict on my gluten free and dairy free diet since I was 14 when I was diagnosed celiac, but I was diagnosed with a wheat allergy when I was 8... I always want to go to the Seattle Meet up for celiacs but I'm kinda afraid it's gonna be all "adults" lol

anybody have problems with boyfriends/girlfriends that don't understand, or think celiac is funny..?

talk to meee (:
