Love 2 travel... What a small world..Mind you us nurses get everywhere .. :blink:

Navigator.. Thank you for the welcome. Yes Edinburgh winds can be fierce but we don't get as much snow or rain as tehy do out west.

I got to a fab butcher on Broughton Street in Edinburgh called Crombies. They have a whole range of gluten free sausages and I'm sure they do haggis as well. Might be worth a google.. :P

I manage my diet quite well but I do call myself 'the dinner guest from hell' .. But my friends and family are all used to my 'disability (as my ex called it) by now..

I have had coeliacs for 9 years now and I also have regular and frequent heartburrn / indigestion . I go through rennies like they were sweeties. I actually have never married the two and have always thought they were problems on their own. :huh:

hmmmmm

Hello Nat girl..I'm a newbie too.. Welcome..

I've had coeliacs for 9 years but I suspect I have had it since childhood after spending 4 months in hospital grossly underweight and vomiting after eating as a 5 year old ..However it was not picked up and I was discharged as ' failure to thrive'

However I did thrive despite that and was diagnosed after a DVT in my arm landed me in hospital and blood tests showed anaemia..So an endoscopy confirmed coeliacs..

And teh rest is history

wow... gotta love the internet..I love that I am now chatting to someone from Canada and someone from New Zealand..Brilliant

Thank you for the welcome

Love to travel... Croatia sounds lovely I have heard many good things about it. How nice that you can visit there regularly.. I love to travel too but dont get the opportunity as much as I'd like ..I was in Turkey a few months ago and I always head up North (of Scotland) every year with my 5 girlfriends..

I also love the Greek islands and I would love to visit New Zealand one day..

A little more information..I am a nurse, I work full time and am a single parent to a teenage son who , as far as I know, doesn't have coeliacs but he does have eczema which flares up every now and then . It makes him so self conscious.:(

Hiya Love2travel.. Thanks for replying.. I live just outside Edinburgh.

Coeliacs sucks eh... :( But hey ho got to get on with it.. I'm fine with it now. I call myself the dinner guest from hell and get really annoyed if people think I have an allergy or a food fad.. I go off on a rant about what coeliacs is and what problems it can cause..

I've never been to Canada but my boss has he loves it ..
