Looking For A Support Group In Central Wv

Recommended Posts

I've been Celiac for nearly 2 years now but am just now adjusting to the diet. I became very sick because I didn't follow the wf gluten-free diet. I need a support group. If only just to share my story with someone who understands. I also feel I can help those who are newly diagnosed.

If anybody knows any information please share.

I also would like any information on starting my own support group.

Thanks, May9

Have not gained any weight but continue to lose it. I am a Senior in college. I believe God has already healed me but my body just doesn't know it yet. I continually pray that God will help all those with food allergies.

Hi Betty. I guess there aren't that many of us on this board in WV. I am probably 3 hours (?) from you - I live on the WV/Ohio border near Parkersburg/Marietta. There are no support groups that I know of, but maybe I am just not aware. What college do you attend?
