New Support Group Starting In Federal Way, Wa

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I know that there are a few others in the South Puget Sound area that are interested in a support group. Marlene's Market in Federal Way is having kind of a planning meeting to see if there's enough interest to start a support group. The meeting is scheduled for Nov. 20th at 7:00 upstairs in the store. As frustrated as I am with Marlene's, I'm planning to go. Maybe the store will start to "get it" as far as gluten free goes.

Started Specific Carbohydrate Diet on 8-16-09 because son was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and want to give him moral support.

Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.

I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalms 27:13

I'll be there with bells on! Maybe I can meet other people with young kids. Hopefully that will get me off my butt about starting the ROCK group I keep thinking about.

Was this in the Marlene's newsletter that just came out last week? I suppose I could check their website to see......

It was in the calendar section of the newsletter (last page). I also read it somewhere else a week or so ago - that's how I know that it's a planning meeting.

I don't have really young kids, but I'll be there too. I'll be the one who looks like she just came from 2 hours of basketball practice. :lol:

Hey Cruelshoes and anyone else living in the Federal Way, Tacoma, Puyallup area - remember the kick-off support group meeting tonight! I'll be there at the last minute, hopefully not too sweaty. (I'll be coming straight from high school basketball practice.)

I must say I am a bit jealous...It seems like everytime I move away from somewhere, something starts that I would love to be involved with. I deffinately miss home(Tacoma/puyallup). but hopefully You all are doing great with the support group and hopefully I can find on that is close to home eventually!!!

I know this has been a while but I am looking for a support group for my daughter and I as we have been diagnosed and working on living with celiac disease for almost a year now. But since relocating here we have had to re-vamp everything we are doing it is still the first year so we are learning. I live in the Renton Washington area.
