Welcome Jennifer:

You have just found the most wonderful support group.

Many people on this site have been dealing with Celiac their whole life and many others are new to it such as yourself.

Just about everything you will need to know can be found here. Questions are always welcome.

My first suggestions for you is to read the posts on this site. Learn as much as you can from that and ask questions.

If you need suggestions to get started on the diet....it will be posted shortly.

Hi Jennifer! Welcome to the board :)

Here is a recent thread talking about support groups in Philadelphia.

http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?showtopic=4808

Hope that helps a little--at least it's a starting point! You can always come on here and talk to us--there are lots of very nice people here who have been where you are and would be more than happy to help you out--feel free to ask anything!

I'm in south Jersey--Burlington County :D

Jennifer,

Welcome to the board! I am happy you have found us---it is great that you found this site so early on. :)

Also, the parent site to this forum, celiac.com, is full of articles, lists of ingredients, faqs, and all kinds of great info to "get you started." I still refer back to it regularly. Also, my favorite celiac book is by Dr. Peter Green "Celiac Disease: A hidden epidemic"---I highly recommend it. It was just recently published and I wish I had it when I was first dx'ed---it covers SO many things.

Let us know what we can do to help :D

Laura
