2/2010 Malabsorption becomes dramatically noticable
3/2010 Negative IgA EMA; negative IgA TTG
4/2010 Negative biopsy
5/2010 Elimination diet; symptoms begin to resolve on gluten-free diet round two (10 days)
5/2010 Diagnosed gluten sensitive based on weakly positive repeat IgA & IgG TTGs and dietary response; decline capsule endoscopy.
Now, what to do about my cookbook in progress? Make it gluten-free?

I just (like today!) got my kitchen approved to do baking in my house, so I'm going to start my own 'bakery'.
I also have in the works a consulting sort of business. Helping people who are newly diagnosed navigate this huge lifestyle change. I have met with a doctor and we collaborated on what types of things would be helpful, and I'm hoping to get it started shortly. One thing at a time, though... (Both of these things don't require huge amounts of money to get started, either. )
Sometimes you gotta think a little differently if there's something you want to do, but is not readily available.
Hope that helps!

Start checking all the gluten free products you enjoy for locations. There has been such a growth in this market. I'm waiting for all the merging, which I have noticed over the years. As soon as I can I will be buying stock in gluten free food.

I'll actually be living in Portland the month of February 2011. I'm hoping that I can find some work out there with the gluten free bakeries/companies, etc. However, I am only there for one month as I'm living in Illinois and that is all the time I can take out of my job here to be there. I really want to move out there. My job kinda sucks here and I really don't like Illinois. My brother lived in Portland for several months and loved it but couldn't find any work. I will have to be really productive with my time while I'm out there.
Hi Coolclimates, Portland is good. Seattle has a lot too, and if you're in Portland for a month you should take a trip to Seattle. Amtrack runs daily and is a nice trip, so you can come even if you don't have a car.
Seattle has Ener-G foods (used to be a customer of mine), just south of downtown Seattle close to the train terminal. http://www.ener-g.com/
The Flying Apron Bakery is just north of downtown and easily reachable by bus. http://www.flyingapron.com/
There's also Sunny Valley Bakery http://www.sunnyvalleywheatfree.com/ They operate a gluten-free bakery in Kent.
WOW Baking is also in Kent. http://www.wowbaking.com/contact-us/
Wheatless in Seattle (formerly DaVinci's) is a gluten-free Restaurant http://www.wheatlessinseattle.net/
That's all I can think of off the top of my head. I'd suggest looking at the sites and calling first. Good luck!

I also went to Chicago recently and will be living there for 2 weeks over the winter vacation. I recently went to the University of Chicago's Celiac center but also went to Rose's Wheat Free bakery in Evanston. I've applied to work there, but they are having trouble keeping their heads above water right now...not enough customers or something. So it doesn't sound really promising. But I live in Illinois so it would be easier to get a job instate instead of Portland. I don't much care for Illinois but I have a preexisting condition and the current health care situation will only stop discriminating against people with a preexisting condition starting in 2014. And that is if Obama's health care plan is not toppled by the Republicans.
