Hi Molly,

Yes, celiac3270 and I both live in Boston now, but he's finishing up his first semester of senior year at Harvard, so he's been working a lot so we haven't had time to hang out, but still keep in touch and will see each other soon! Yes I graduated, degree in chemistry (I don't really know how I did it), I'm taking some time off enjoying life before applying to medical and PHD schools for graduate work, so hopefully starting one of those in the next few years!


You go girl!!!

Never guess who is doing a gluten free trial--Mark (my husband for anyone who doesn't know). Seems to be helping greatly his reflux and a couple other things. I'm packing him a gluten-free lunch every day :rolleyes:

Way to go, Wolfie! :) That's a great opportunity to educate people -- I'll bet several students left your presentation thinking, "Gee, that could explain my migraines, constipation, depression and rashes... . . ..I need to get that blood work done".....

Well, we have been doing some out-of-season spring cleaning around here. It is our turn to host the family Christmas dinner for my family. We are slowly sorting through stuff, some of which is related to our now-closed retail business. We filled the garage with gems and detritus prior to closing the store in late June. July was a rest period, and from early August to early September we did some travelling, and met up with a few pholks phrom psillyville.

Today marked a major milestone. For the phirst time in six months, there is enough room to park one of our vehicles in the garage. Tonight, the Ford will be sheltered. :D

Wow, a VEHICLE in the GARAGE? I have been my house less than a year, but it never crossed my mind that was possible (genuinely :)). Well done, good work.

Visiting psyliville folks sounds fun.

Hope sorting business stuff out is helping.

- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)

We eat mostly gluten-free at home and when we go to PF Changs we all order gluten-free so we can share. So a teenager & a Hub plus a college student when he is home....not quite the same but the 3 of them probably equal 1 whole gluten-free person?

So we added soy back in to Tim's diet and he seems fine on it after 3 months. Now we are trying mammal meat, and he is sick. So is he sick, or is he reacting to the meat? GRRRR.

Dave is the only non-celiac in the house hence he eats mostly gluten-free and has seen health benefits over the past three years. He has increased his bicycle riding to hundreds of miles per month -- before my diagnosis he was fit but packing a lot of unexplained weight -- sound familiar?

Guys... i just did my presentation on celiac in my bio lab today :) The professor said i did really good and i didn't have a breakdown panic attack like i normally would.


Yay Shadow!!! It is amazing how much easier it is to public speak to a subject you know well. I agree choosing this topic whenever possible is helpful to many. My son has given three Celiac speeches now. One in HS and two in college.

Parking in the garage - congratulations!!!! I have not parked in our "shop" since our first rental home in Santa Barbara back in '85. Somehow that garage addition has got lost in the game of life with my contractor hubby.

Careful Mw -- you may have a Silly visitor one day ;) I am onto another piece of my silly health puzzle that docs and labs don't test for in the US :blink: -- believe it. Unfortunately I don't have the funds necessary to visit my friends in Oz or Europe so I'll figure my way around our silly health care system.

That makes three of us here, Clay and I are on the list, too. How many more of us are there??? :blink:


Dave is mostly gluten-free - he does eat out about once a month or with clients when necessary.

Yeah! Blame it on us!

Edited -- doh lost this one in the multiquote haze --
Add Dave to the partial group.

forgot to also say -- do celiacs attract other sillys? Dave's Mom had Sjogren's Auto Hep and RA -- no wonder our kids hit the AI jackpot

:(

So we added soy back in to Tim's diet and he seems fine on it after 3 months. Now we are trying mammal meat, and he is sick. So is he sick, or is he reacting to the meat? GRRRR.


So sorry to hear Tim is having a tough time reintroducing food....awful when you don't know it's food or just a virus -- also -- I had a delayed reaction when I added the few foods that passed my elimination test last year. Don't want to suggest re-removing soy - just it is tough to figure it out. :(

So sorry to hear Tim's having trouble re-introducing foods. I went through the elimination diet (only eating rice, vegetables and some fruit). It got extremely boring. Re-entering has to be a slow process but it's SO frustrating. Kareeng helped me a lot when I was going through it. You might find he had=s an easier time with chicken than red meat. Just know we're all pulling for him and sending lots of positive energy. It took me three years but now I'm able to eat a wide range of for. I don't seem to enjoy meat. I'll have an occasional steak. Thai food is tasty and tolerable to most.Keep us posted and remember we're here for you and your family.
