Has anyone started a celiac disease support / discussion group here in Tallahassee. I'm a resident of Tallahassee and am scheduled to start grad school in January at FSU. I was dignosed with celiac disease just recently and would love to talk with others here in town. It has been a tough year and having some friends to share with and learn from would be outstanding. I'm willing to host a meeting at my home, in is in the Chaires area on the east side of town. I've got lots of room for parking, sitting, and talking. We are also a gluten free household.

Please advise,

Thanks,

MedicMan

hey! so we were talking about it at the beginning of the year, and there are defintely people interested, but with football season and everything it was sort of hard to get a weekend. I think we should do something though!

I have just been accepted to a Ph.D. program at FSU, starting in January. I'm very excited, although a bit nervous because of living with Celiac.

I don't know anything about Tallahassee. I've only visited Florida twice (Orlando, both times). Is there a Whole Foods or other specialty grocery store? I frequent Outback and Carrabba's for my special "eat-out nights" with friends.

Any info about living gluten-free or Tallahassee in general is more than appreciated!!

Guess I'm trading in my Hokie gear for some 'Noles stuff! :P

Let me know If i can do anything to help this process along. We really need a good support group. I have been a tallahassee boy for a looooong time [moving here with my family from Arizona in 1957]. Let me hear from you if you get a group together.

After I was diagnosed, my doctor tested a number of other patients. I was his first case ever.] Now he has a number of Celiac patients, also looking for a group. His name is John Ness, and might be willing to help out too.

Let me hear from you

I have spoken to Dr John Ness in Tallahassee about starting a support group in Tallahassee. He has offered the use of his waiting room on an evening or weekend. Anyone interested in joining in, give me an email here, or at jswartz.pg@gmail.com. We need a support group in this town.

Also, anyone in the Tallahassee area, Dr Ness is not a specialist. He is the Best, however.

Hey guys, Taylor found me on Facebook this morning and sent me the link to check out the board here. I'm so excited to see so many other Celiacs - I'm the only one in my family, and I don't personally know anyone else who has to deal with this, so I can't wait to meet all of you. I moved here from northern VA for grad school about 2 months after I was diagnosed, not knowing ANYONE in Tally and dealing with this strange disease (and, oh yeah, grad school too). I have DH, so luckily most of my symptoms are external and quick (I can tell within 30 minutes if I've eaten something bad), and that's how I was diagnosed so quickly (less than a year from bumps to diagnosis)

And for those who are on Facebook, I started a group called "Celiacs at FSU" if you want to join that too, help keep us all up to date and all. Two things:

1. La Fiesta on the Appalachee Parkway is safe for eating out, as long as you stick to the corn stuff

2. RICE CHEX IS NOW GLUTEN-FREE!!!

Yay!

Hello! My name is Carolanne...and I've lived in Florida for over 20 years. I am a Celiac, and I've been Wheat-Free for 20 years, and Gluten-Free for over 3 years. I'm trying to locate people who live Gluten Free here in Florida...and it's not been easy. Most of the links I've found have been disconnected or discontinued...and I'm having a devil of time finding people to connect to. I'd really like to find others who are interested in getting together...and I understand that I am not alone. I've read several posts from people looking for help, Doctors, restaurants, support groups, meetups and such here in Florida.

GlutenFreeInFlorida-subscribe@yahoogroups.com

I've created a Yahoo Group in the hopes of connecting with other people here in the Sunshine State...and to help others connect as well. I'd like to know if anyone is interested in something that will enable you to contact others in your own local area. I'd like to make more information available to people who are living Gluten-Free in Florida.

Is the Tally support group meeting through the summer? I haven't heard anything from anyone and just want to make sure I'm not being left out of the loop...

Are any of the students in Tally for the summer? I'd love to meet up with you if you are! :)

    The doctor did 8 biopsy from the top of my throat to the bottom of my stomach....he thought I had H-Hyploi..but I did not. I am beginning to think they are missing my issues. He gave me some pump inhibitors, that's it. I have an appt. with...
    Your doctor would run a blood tests (ask for full celiac panel) and then confirm with endoscopy and biopsy celiac doesn't always show up on endoscopy and sometimes the biopsy is what confirms.  
    How is one tested for Celiac Disease? I have had several endoscopes and the lower part too and none of the doctors have said anything about it. I have BIG issues with bloating, severe pain in my upper chest (under the chest bone), at times...
