I'm a 17 year old girl and I was told about two weeks ago I have celiac and have to live gluten free if I want the pains I get to stop. The problem is my family is Italian and my fav food is pasta and seeing all my fav foods that I can't eat is killing me inside and it's really messed with my emotions and I haven't really been happy since I've had to be gluten free and I don't know what to do to get out of this upsetting state. I guess I just really need someone to talk to about it because my boyfriend thinks he understands cuz his dad has celiac but it's not the same and it's just been hard trying to ajust and I would really just like someone to talk. Thanks.

I feel your pain. I just got diagnosed yesterday with Celiacs Disease. I feel very discouraged and scared to eat anything because a lot of foods contain gluten. I am meeting with a nutritionist who can give me more information about gluten free diets. All I know is that I must try my hardest to stick to gluten free living because the abdominal pain is unbearable.
I bought my first gluten free cracker yesterday to see how it tasted. It wasnt bad, tasted kind of bland and super dry but, it went down (with some water and prayer)... I guess I can get use to it. Keep hope, just remember that there is someone somewhere that has it way worse then us.
FYI Try looking into gluten free pastas and rices. They sell at whole foods. They are a lil more pricy but hopefully that will make your transition a little easier.

I completely understand what you are going through. The first few months are extremely hard, but your taste buds do get used to eating gluten free foods. Gluten free pasta is amazing and has helped me get through this a TON. It tastes almost exactly the same as regular pasta (my family can't even tell the difference). You can find it in most major grocery stores in the pasta section (I use Walmart/Publix). Also, something else you can look into is seeing if there is an actual gluten free section in the grocery store. My Walmart does in the chip/snacky area. They have granola bar-like things, sweet mixes (brownies are my personal fave), other pastas, cereals (Chex cereal is amazing), and other nice things to have. I hope this helps! It just takes some time to adjust to this new life style but it is well worth it!
P.S. - I have been gluten free now for around 5 months

I know it is a huge loss when you have to totally change the way you eat. You will be grieving for a while. But I think you are in for a nice surprise as soon as you start trying gluten free pasta's. They are excellent. My son says they are better than "Regular Pasta" and he really liked his pasta! That is the one thing we had no trouble replacing on the gluten free diet. Wish you the best of luck. We like Ancient Harvest pasta, but there are a whole lot of brands to try. Good luck! :)
