My name is Katie and I am 15 years old. I live in Virginia Beach and I was diagnoised with Celiac Disease 8 months ago so I am still pretty new with all the gluten free stuff. I haven't met anyone with this disease and no one in my family has this disease so I am pretty much stuck here alone figuring this out myself. I would love to have someone to talk to about this disease and diet and share experiences with. I'd love to hear from anyone who couuld help :)

I hope one of my daughters can one day. She is mostly gluten free, but has not been diagnosed herself. She is just going with the flow of my diet.

I hope you find some others to share your struggles with. I have had some Celiacs appear out of the blue in my life. You will find some too, I believe.

Hi, my name is Kaitlyn and I'm 17 years old. I live in Ohio and have been gluten free for 2 years. I only know one other person with celiac and she is my cousin. I would love to know someone who knows what I live through with celiac. Plus, I've always wanted a pen pal :)

Hello Katie, I have a daughter named Jessica who is also 15 and just found out in March '12 that she has Celiac...I have to warn you she feels she needs no support groups and such, but I think it would be good for her to have someone she can confide in!!!! She too is the only one in our family who has it. Please reach out to her.

Hi katie,
My name is Emma. I am 15 years old and have had Celiac disease for 2 years. I also have a lot of other health issues so I know what your going through. At the beginning I felt very alone and misunderstood, And I promise that over time, things get easier. I would be happy to be your pen pal and share some of my "celiac" experiences with you (I have had a lot of them) :).

You have probably figured it out by now but....

Pm (private message) each other. You do that by clicking the envelope under the person's picture/avatar. Then you can decide if you want to exchange email addresses privately or just pm on here for a while. Putting an email address on a post here is very public.

Hey! I would love to talk to Jessica and trust me I felt the same way at first but really talking about it helps alot you can get alot of tips from other celiacs. If she would like to talk I would love to talk.
