Oh, we had it here, too! We get all your weather, minus 5 degrees or so, and sometimes with a little lake effect precipitationfrom Lake Erie, held in by the Allegheny mountains, so it's nearly always cloudy. And we have major hills here, which really screws everything up!

Why dont' you call some of the major hospitals in Waukegan and see if they have any meetings or have phone numbers for any local support groups. I was not diagnosed Celiac when I left IL six years ago. So I had no reason at that time to look for support. There is also a hospital in Chicago that has a Celiac research center and maybe they would have phone numbers for a local support group in your area. Good luck.
