Hi! I'm new to your site. I'm looking for support groups in the NY metro area (preferably Long Island). I'm a recently rediagnosed celiac. I was about three when I first began living on bananas and rice. I have lots of questions. Anyone willing to help?

Thanks, BonLI

I live in Manhattan, and I don't have any answers for you as I am just learning about this now and not done with the whole testing process yet. But I'm interested to know too, so I'm going to keep an eye on this post!

I'm just over the bridge from you in NJ. Just over the Arthur Kill. I know of a support group in East Brunswick, but I just stick with online groups...easier than being stuck in traffic, and made some great friends this way.

I am in Westchester. I don't know of any groups in LI. I mainly stick to online but have found the Westchester Celiac Group holds a lot of events and may start to get involved with them. There is a meeting at Whole Foods tonight that I want to attend.

HI,

JUST THOUGHT I WOULD OFFER A SUGGESTION. IF YOU GO TO MEETUPS, ON CELIAC. YOU WILL SEE A GROUP. I DO NOT KNOW THE ACTUAL WEBSITE. BUT I CAN FOWARD YOU AN EMAIL FROM THEM IF YOU WOULD LIKE. I HAVE NOT YET BEEN, B UT THEIR MEETINGS ARE MONTHLY AT DIFF RESTAURANTS. AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT MUST BE FUN.

ANYWAYS LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED MORE INFO. IN ANY CASE I WOULD LOVE TO BE IN TOUCH WITH MORE CELIACS AS WELL. I FEEL LIKE A LONER, NOONE IN MY FAMILY BUT MYSELF, AND IT IS SO REPETITIVE TELLING PEOPLE WHAT CELIAC IS, AS I AM SURE YOU CAN RELATE.

BE WELL, LAURIE
