Tori F.

Newly Diagnosed In Florida!

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

My name is Tori and I have been diagnosed with Celiac for about a month. I have a wonderful husband and two small children. I live in Macclenny, FL and I travel to Jacksonville three to four times a week. I am looking for some local friends to maybe start up a support group. Does one exsist already? I am feeling a little overwhelmed and starting to get frustrated. I am scrared to eat anything unless it says "Gluten Free" on it. I would love to make some new friends dealing with the same thing I am. Thanks! Tori

:D Hi There Tori,

I too am recently diagnosed celiac disease and having a very confusing time. Sounds as though I am much older than you, but I am sure we have the same goals in mind. Getting through this celiac disease life, right?

Hi Tori!

I am one month in as well. I live in Tampa FL. But I have a niece in St. Augustine that I visit from time to time.


GLUTEN FREE 4/4/08. LEGUME/SOY FREE 5/15/08. YEAST FREE. CORN FREE. GRAIN FREE. DAIRY FREE. I am eating all meats, eggs, veggies, fruits, squash, nuts and seeds. I just keep getting better every day. :)

Do not let any of the advice given here substitute for good medical care. Let this forum be a catalyst for research. Find support for any post in here before you believe it to be true. Arm yourself with knowledge. Let your doctor be your assistant. Listen to their advice, but follow your own instincts as well. Miracles are within your reach. You can heal!

Hi there. I am new to this too. (6 days) I used to travel to Baker county often. (glen st. mary / macclenny/sanderson) Are you near 125?I live near Orlando, but I plan on making a trip up that way soon, so hopefully you/we can find a few people to form a support group. I know it is very small town there, but I am sure that there are others in that area that can relate. Good luck

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.
