Heh... well I'm new here and hoping I can meet with others knowing the same struggle I've been dealing with.

I live in the mountains, and am currently in another doctor-related struggle. Technically I was diagnosed with a blood test, and since being on a gluten-free diet for half a year (at the time), my blood results only proved that I had gotten rid of the gluten in my system. Now a new specialist for some reason is doing genetic testing and well, I haven't even gotten the results back yet.

But I don't think it would matter. Considering I've had cross contamination on multiple accounts... this just proves I do have it. But the struggle lies to be dealt with.

Along with Celiac, I have a horrible anxiety problem. Panic attacks at any little thing and for what reason, I'll never know. And with times being hard enough, I cannot work. I do still live with my parents, although I am 20 years old now. And they've been my biggest support through everything.

I was hoping by perhaps making some penpals here, perhaps it can help me feel more comfortable with Celiac Disease. I'd love to hear about others stories and how they cope/coped with it and so on.

So please feel free to message me. : )

Hi RozzyRay ( cool name). I'm happy to hear that your parents are supportive. When I first went gluten-free I had a lot of anxiety attacks, not full panic attacks, in regards to food. I would say to not put yourself in scary situations like dinner at someone's house, until you really have a plan and will stick with it -Like bring your own food and not give in. Feel free to vent or ask questions here.

Last advice that helped me when I was feeling bad : find something happy everyday and get out of the house. It might be as simple as watching the birds in the yard or throwing a ball for the dog.

B-complex (gluten free of course) and fish oil has helped me the most. I forgot to take them a couple of days ago and I could tell a big difference in how I felt. I was on anti-depressants on and off for years.

Hello- My first post! I joined today after a painful and emotional accidental experience with a gluten filled nutrition drink. I was looking for someone from NH- just curiosity and maybe someone to understand my surroundings and possible advice on nearby gluten-free stuff. I'm in southern NH but would travel for a good gluten-free meal or event.

I've been gluten-free for 7 months- been sick for over 20 years! YEAY DOCTORS! I have many medical issues beside celiac and I haven't worked in 4 years (I'm a psychiatric nurse) but things are looking up the longer I've been on this diet.

I have anxiety issues too- along with a fun array of other gluten induced mental tortures- I may be able to help you get through :)

Wanted to introduce myself and make my mark on the board

Hi and welcome to the board. As you will see on this board there are many of us that went a very long time from becoming celiac to finally getting diagnosed. For some the anxiety issues resolve a bit gluten free so hopefully that will happen with you. Do feel free to ask any questions you need to and this is a great place for support.

I am thinking about moving to NH, my DD and DS are in Boston and I want to get a bit closer and get away from the highest taxes in the US. How easy is it for you to find gluten-free food where you are? Do you know if there are by any chance any Wegmans stores in NH? I hate to lose the convience of being able to just grab a item and look for the G.

Never heard of wegmans but it's getting easier to find gluten-free food around here- all the grocery stores have a section or have gluten-free foods labled through the store- the selection isn't top notch. There is an all gluten-free store in Hillsborogh- about an hour from me- new stuff seems to be appearing around the Keene area where I am. I'll fill you in more if you PM me.

Thanks for the hope on the anxiety issues- both my anxiety and depression have improved dramatically since the diet change- both came flooding back at once full force after the gluten incident last week but are lessening again. It will take a little time to undo 20 years worth of learned reactions and behaviors but as I said above- things are looking up and it's only been 7 months!

Feel free to grill me for info on moving to the area- I'll do what I can to help
