Hello. My name is Tamara. I am looking for a support group in the Inland Empire or surrounding area of Riverside, San Bernardino in California. Any suggestion?

Tamara, a search didn't find a group, but maybe we could sort of do it online for now. In the interest of full disclosure, there's no certainty of celiac here. My youngest stopped spitting up/throwing up every day when I removed wheat from his diet, something I wouldn't have thought of if I hadn't already done it for the older boy for behavior. But my baby cannot have testing done yet as he's not two. However, the treatment needed is still the same. I've gotten pretty good at baking gluten free in just a few short months, only to realize I get to start over because the same baby has trouble with almonds and the doctor recommended we avoid all tree nuts.

I live in San Bernardino where we have no Henry's nearby and where the best store for gluten free products is Clark's (OMG expensive). It would be great to have someone to share recipes with and to share finds with. Also, when it's kids that suffer, it seems so much harder to make them understand why they can't eat what everyone else is. It's hard to even get the folks outside the immediate family to understand or even accomodate our needs, which is so frustrating.

I'd really like to see if more Inland Empire folks will come out of the woodwork if we start having an active thread, or even if we put together a yahoo group.

Hope you are still checking this thread because we have a new support group in Hemet that just started a few months ago & we're growing. We meet the second Saturday of every month at 9:30 a.m. at the Red Robin in Hemet (entrance to the side door). You can contact Jenny at 951-288-5999 for more info.

    • i hope you tipped that waitress well????
    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
