#551933 Another Newbie...

Don't assume that because you put on weight that you cannot have celiac disease. Not true, I believe that the % is about 34% that are overweight not underweight. I'm overweight and I have it. Each person is different. Keep eating gluten if you plan to get tested or the tests will not be accurate.

#546130 Celiac Disease A Ada Disability?

Posted by on 10 July 2009 - 12:55 PM

Do you have a home church? You can go to a local church and reach out to them. Explain your situation to the pastor. When an area is depressed like yours is, there are many people who need extra money and in a church they also want to help people. There are probably retired folks or layed off folks who would rent to you for a small fee. Explain to the pastor what would be an ideal amount for you to pay. Some would do it to help a struggling student. Explain also your special needs. They might also appreciate a little house cleaning in exchange for helping you. The worst that could happen is that they tell you no; you wouldn't be any worse off than you are now. And you never know, it could solve your problem and someone else's problem too.

#519912 Anyone Else Lose Their Childhood?...

Posted by on 24 March 2009 - 08:27 AM

I'm so sorry you've suffered so much and missed a lot of childhood milestones. All I have to say is that this eighteen years is finally over and now you can spend the next 80 years feeling healthy and in control. It's going to be great!! Maybe you can think of your start on the gluten-free diet your "new" birthday!!

#504094 "Super Sensitive" Celiacs.....

Posted by on 21 January 2009 - 08:59 AM

In the beginning, I ate the fries, no problem. But then I found this forum and the great fry debate. I made the decision not to have them anymore. The reason is I've become more sensitive as time goes on and I just won't risk it. I've put that in my catagory with "made in a facility that also makes...." I just don't do it. My local place makes fries for me and I'm OK with them. Or I make them myself, that's it.

#493273 Sobering Article

Posted by on 16 December 2008 - 01:49 PM

With many in desperate need in our area, our church joined the Angel Food network where anyone can buy a box of restaurant quality food for $30. They can also add to that additional meat or fresh boxes to that if they wish. They can use their food stamps. Our church has an alternative Christmas program and this year we added Angel Food to that so boxes can be purchased and donated. We all need to help each other, it's the only way we will all make it.

#488437 Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted by on 29 November 2008 - 09:06 AM

All good advice but I'll add that you'll get a nicer cookie if you use half butter and half shortening. They'll brown less quickly and have an especially good flavor. For your cheesecake. I make a Death by Chocolate cake that is excellant. I took the regular recipe from the cacao website and subbed the 4 T's of flour with cornstarch and the sour cream with mayonaisse. This would be good as your base or air dried and crumbled then added with melted butter for a crust. M-M-M!

Need the cheesecake recipe!
