Anyone From Washington State?

I am new to the Celiac Disease journey and I am wondering how people branch out for support. Do you find local support groups, go online such as this forum, family and friends? How did you begin your new life? I must admit I am very overwhelmed and not sure what avenues to use.

I'm in WA state. Where are you at? If you want to chat, pm me and I'll give you my contact info.

We started going to a support group 5 years ago, but I didn't find it overly helpful. This forum has been an invaluable resource to me!

I am in Bellingham. Kind of up here...haha I just found this forum yesterday or the day before. I love it so far and I am thrilled to have found sooooo many answers to so many questions I have.

In weeks time, I will begin another whole ballgame. I have more chemical testing to get done at Swedish :(

I'm in Seattle. However, there is a fantastic support group which meets in Bellingham. See http://www.glutenfreeway.info The leader is Kelle Rankin-Sunter. The website will give you info about support group meetings.

Also the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America is located in Auburn. Contact them at http://www.gluten.net for questions you might have about the gluten free diet or gluten intolerance.

Just wanted to say hello to those people living in Washington. I am moving to the Seattle area in May, 2011 and will be looking for a support group to join. I am not sure where I will be living just yet so if anyone has any ideas of a couple of support groups I would appreciate it. :)

Hello all,

I am new to the world of the gluten-free, but my mom was diagnosed with Celiac disease 30 years ago (so I'm not a complete dummy :)

I just wanted to put the bug in your ear about visiting Seattle soon...I may be traveling to Seattle in the next few months. My son and his girlfriend moved there a few months ago and said I should live there because of all the "gluten-free" places they have noticed!

Once I get up there tho (I'm in the KC area), I'd like to make contact with a few people about where to eat, or possibly meeting people.

Thanks so much!

NN

NewsyNanette,

I was just visiting my son in Seattle this past August 2010. There is absolutely no problem in finding gluten free food or restaurants. Seattle is miles ahead of most parts of the country when it comes to Celiacs disease and gluten intolerences. I spent a week their and every restaurant I ate in was knowledgeable and accomodating. I like Seattle so much that I am moving there in May 2011. I think it is a great place for someone with Celiac Disease because of the attitude and knowledge of the people there. You will love it!
