Hi - I'm New Here

Recommended Posts

I have been to this site thousands of times and not realized there was a message board. I found out about my gluten intollerance about 5 years ago and have struggled with my love of food verus feeling sick constantly. I am so glad you all are here to support and share.

My mom just found out she has the same problem and it seems like every one meet knows at least one person with this.

I look forward to meeting you all!

Welcome Sarah - we're glad you found the board! I'm a newbie to the diet and after my biopsy I asked my Mother to get tested. She says she will (been looking for what's wrong for over two years to no avail) but she recently had a beach vacation and she also has a cruise coming up in the summer so I'm looking for that to be her next excuse as to wait to get tested. How did you get your Mother to get tested, if you don't mind my asking?

Welcome to the board!

I'm new at this, but I've found this site necessary for survival! Everyone on here is so great! :D

I am new too, and this is an awesome website. I am really excited to be able to chat withg people who understand. I have great friends, but unless yo go through it, you just don't understand. My son has been gluten-free for 4.5 years now. It seeems even hard to find a doctor who can really help. So, I am excited to be able to relate with people who can really relate. Thank You!

thank you for your warm welcome!

How did you get your Mother to get tested, if you don't mind my asking?

My mom is a smart woman and knew from all I had been through that it was very likely that she had the same problem. She did it all on her own and is doing much better. She had gotten to an extrememe point before getting tested but the tests - as with me- weren't really conclusive. She started the diet and started feeling a lot better pretty quickly.

Thats awesome that your mom has gone Gluten Free. My mom also has, after inconclusive tests, and is miraculously feeling better. I think she's still fighting a little bit, but she's doing really well and has jumped right into gluten free baking, which is nice :)

Welcome to the forum, it can be an odd place sometimes, but its helpful and fun and uplifting as well.

Sarah, Welcome! I am somewhat new too, but I have been SO encouraged here!

--Elonwy--ODD is GOOD isn't it? Better than BORING, right?!!! Where else, besides maybe a nursing home, can you hear so many discussions on POOP?
