Mommida... puberty? Sweet! My son is 17 now (college in September...though he will be living at home since we're only 7 minutes from the college...yes, he LOVES this plan...lol). The only difference I see in 17 and 13 is the drivers license... ;)

How old are they? Time for a nap...or perhaps involuntary down-time? :/

MysteryDiagnosis2012... Did you happen to read where I wrote that MY feelings are not specific to YOU?

We are all here for support...but, also for the communication of our feelings and/or ideas. I'm sorry that you don't care for mine but, it seems to me that if you are just looking for everyone to agree with you all the time...in the name of "support"...you aren't going to get much out of an online forum.

I wasn't trying to "kick you while you're down"..and I'm not sure how to respond to that, really. I wasn't trying to be cruel or hurtful and, on one hand, I feel badly that you thoughts... On the other... I, well, I guess I will see if "this" is the right place for me, as well... I'm here for information, "sharing", and, yes, "support"...but, I'm NOT looking for everyone to tell me just what I want to hear... Perhaps time will tell, precisely, what each of us gains from our experience in this forum.

First... The lack of knowledge pertaining to gluten intolerance/sensitivities/celiac/etc has nothing to do with the health insurance debate...it has to do with a lack of knowledge and/or willingness by the mainstream medical community to get its collective head out of its collective rear end...

Second... I have to say that I, quite simply, can NOT understand why folks who have found RELIEF/IMPROVEMENT from going gluten-free (especially when their doctors have not been able to provide them with relief/improvement) would just go back to doing something that they know was harming them?!?!?

Third... While I am very new to this, I have been researching like a mad fool and the information is out there... Simply, IF you are gluten intolerant/sensitive/celiac/etc/etc and you are eating gluten YOU ARE DAMAGING YOUR BODY... And, IF you have damage, it does not go away overnight.

As someone who is dealing with significant health issues, I am very sympathetic to the suffering of others BUT I find that I don't have much patience for the lack of fortitude necessary to help oneself. If you're sick...how badly do you want to get better? Btw, this is not directed, specifically, at the author of this thread...just venting about something that is really starting to bother me...
