Hello everyone!!

I am new to these boards but was wondering if there was anyone on here from the South East Missouri area? I have not yet formally been diagnosed but I am hoping to hear from my Dr any day now with my Celiac Panel test results!

I'd love to hear from anyone in my area or close to my area!!

Take care and have a GREAT night!!!

Hi! I'm actually from the Kansas side in KC, so really, nowhere close. And after that baseball game today, I think my dog in my picture may have had the right idea. He refused to wear the Royals hat. :lol:

Hi bbuster!!
What is the name of your town? I live in Fisk, it's between Poplar Bluff and Dexter. It is a very small town of about 350 people!

Well thanks so much for your response!!
& I totally agree "GO CARDS"!!!!!!

Scott City - north of Sikeston 20 miles or so.

I still have a sister and my mother living in SEMO, so I have made the drive on HWY 60 from Springfield through Dexter many, many times. I've seen the sign for Fisk.

We are lucky that Springfield is big enough to have some health food stores to buy gluten-free supplies. We even have a local support group, but it's mostly older people, and my son is the only family member with Celiac.

good luck with your diagnosis,

Bev

Hope all is well there. We saw pictures of Joplin and it is terrible! The news said the hospital there took a direct hit.

Springfield got the thunderstorm, but the tornado activity went south of us. After it passed there was a huge double rainbow!

Wow!! Scott City huh? I go through there everytime I go to Cape!! Small world!

I am very worried about getting the diagnosis simply for the reason Poplar Bluff only has 1 health food store and I am merely assuming that they carry gluten free foods. I have been paying attention when I grocery shop (at wal-mart) to the amounts of gluten free foods available.

But I guess I will do the best I can with what I have to work with!!

Most health food stores carry gluten-free items, and most will special-order items for you if they don't already carry it. But with the internet you can always buy mail-order items yourself. The hard part is deciding what to buy, but eventually you figure out what things you like and don't like. And don't overlook local grocery stores or Wal-Mart - you can always ask them to carry specific items.

I don't buy a lot of pre-made gluten-free stuff - just occasionally pretzels and cookies. Mostly I buy gluten-free flours and bake everything myself - pizza crusts, bread, rolls, cookies, cakes, waffles, etc. My son never cared for pasta, gravy or casseroles, so that simplifies things. We do a lot of Mexican foods using corn tortillas and taco shells.

We had one health food store in Mountain Home... 25 miles away... now there are two!! Woo hoo!! At the one store, the owner offered to order anything I wanted/needed, but I had to tell him that while I certainly appreciated his effort to help me and how I'd like to patronize local businesses... gluten-free food is expensive and I can order from the online site w/ the name of the long river in So. America (I don't think we're allowed to say the name) and (when I plan to order my Pamela's bread mix and Tinkyada pasta and do it at the same time) shipping if FREE, not to mention the per-item cost is less. He understood completely.
