Hi, I am in Alliston, about 50 miles north of Toronto (southwest of Barrie). I am 52 years old, and just figured out two and a half weeks ago that I've had full blown celiac disease all summer, and gluten intolerance all my life (was diagnosed with fibromyalgia). Yesterday I found that it is likely lectin intolerance (which includes gluten), which leaves me with very little I can eat :blink: . But avoiding gluten and other things I am intolerant to for these two weeks has made an incredible difference to the way I am feeling, I know I am on the right track, finally!

I feel weird too, having to tell people I can't eat so many things. Because they don't understand that it makes me feel desperately ill if I 'cheat' on my diet. Most people think of cheating on a diet means eating sweets or something like that on a weight loss diet, and they don't have a clue that you absolutely cannot do that with this diet.

If it was within the general GTA vicinity, I could try...... It would definitely have to be a Saturday though. That way, Terry could stay home with the kids and I could actually have a relaxing outing!!!! (If anyone watches Desperate Housewives, I AM SOOOOOO LYNETTE!!!!!) :P

If anyone looks at your differently cause you have Celiac I'd think they were pretty ignorant and rude,and good riddance. Celiac doesnt make you a freak. It's very common these days. Anyway, welcome, cause I'm new too.

Well, it doesn't really look like a lot of people want to meet up.
Darn, I thought that would get a lot of responses. <_< :(
