Hey everyone, I know there are celiacs out here, in the raliegh durham area, what I am wondering is if there is any one out in Fayetteville, Srping lake, Hope Mills area. I am leaving soon but would still like to know about restaurants for the time i have left her, also if we could start a group, that would be awesome, at least then there would be some hope for other people wth celiac in the area...

I believe *marinewife* is in the Fayetteville area and is also new to this site.

Here are some support contacts for your area for the Celiac Disease Foundation:

Yes, thanks for the link! But about Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill groups--I find no active groups online. I am hoping to hook up with a gourmet celiac group, or a group who enjoys eating out together once a month or so.

Thank you,

C.T.

We have lots of folks from the Raleigh-Cary-Durham area. Maybe you can start a new thread about a gourmet cooking/dinner group. I might even drive the way. :)

I have entertained the idea of starting a group. What would you suggest would be the best way to go about it?

Am open to all suggestions.

This is a great please to start. Deborah will help you out any way she can. And, I might add, the Celiac Disease Foundation has one of the best newsletters that I have ever seen.

Where are you located?? I too am trying to find the best way to go about starting some sort of group it just seems like most the NC celiacs on this site are at least an hour or more from me....not that I am not willing to drive that far, but I would rather stay close to home, since I really dont know anything outside of fayetteville, hope mills, sprinklake area. I guess I will run to the apple crate and ask if they know if there is a group already here or not. and if not see if they might be into helping get one started, since last time I was in there they told me there were quite a few celiacs in the area.

Hi,

I use to live in Fayetteville in 2006. I didn't think their were very many celiacs there. I met only one other lady and I met her @ the Apple Crate but she was a military wife and eventually moved. I also moved for one reason or another. I remember the lady @ the Apple Crate saying there were a lot of other celiacs that came in to shop. It didn't occur to me at the time to start a group. I think that would've made life a whole lot easier there. Bless you for starting one. It was hard to be a celiac in Fayetteville when there's only Harris Teeters and Apple Crate to choose from- THATS IT!. Hopefully things have gotten better. I ate out a few times and was glutened all the time. You could try the Outback, they seem to be very celiac concious. I tried the Mash House -was glutened, tried Carrabas -was glutened and other restaurants except the Outback, but I'd call ahead first. Your on the right track to start with the Apple Crate. I hope you find what your looking for. :)

Lotsa Luck,

Larissa

First uncertain diagnosis 2004, Second doctor claimed the first doctor was crazy and pulled me off the diet. To have a Third confirmed Diagnosis 2007.

Gluten Free since Nov. 2007. Was gluten-free on and off again since 2004, Horrible idea.

Feeling Fantabulous now!!

But even If i could get one meeting set up, just to start it out that would be great, since I am leaving on the 21st of this month. when I went into the apple crate she said that there were alot of celiacs here in fayetteville...so we will see.

Oops, I am wearing too many hats this morning. I was thinking that you both were in the Jacksonville area, not Fayetteville.

Raleigh/Cary areas would be your next big city. If something can't be found in Raleigh, it just can't be found.

NC is made up of small towns. I consider myself pretty fortunate to be in Raleigh... we do have a lot of stuff. And if we don't have it, you can be sure Cary does.

@Alaskaguy With regard to the timing, I think that everyone is a bit different! I used to have a shorter time to onset when I was first diagnosed (within 24h). As time has gone on, and I've glutened myself less and less, I have noticed that the time gets a bit longer.  Recent history seems to matter a bit too - if I've been glutened recently and then get glutened again, the rash will show up faster on the second round. For example, in the last 3 weeks I got slightly glutened by inadvertent
