Pen Pal

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm relatively new to the gluten free life (6 months). In general I don't like talking to groups, I prefer a one-on-one, close friend kind of thing. I was originally hoping I could meet other people who lived in Washington to talk with, but I haven't had much luck. I realized maybe it'd be easier to find a good pen pal or two who are in a similar boat. If you also feel the need to have a specific individual or two to talk to about all the various challenges and joys of having to give up gluten, then I'd love to become pen pals! (Email, or for that matter old traditional mail pen pals if that suits you better)

I am 25 year old female who lives in WA with my husband and 3 other roommates.. none of them are gluten free. I originally went gluten free at the suggestion of a natruropathic doctor. Within a week I felt amazingly better. Several months later when I heard about Celiac it was too late to test accurately. I saw a massage therapist (who specializes in energy work) when she took one look at me she was shocked at the damage she could feel in my stomach and said I must be a Celiac, but I can't really use that as proof for my doctor. I really love how much healthier I feel being gluten free, but I'm also finding it hard to have to be so cautious about what I eat, and I'm still trying to work out how to fit my gluten free lifestyle into my social life.

Anyhow, I'd love to meet a good pen pal so we can share everything we are going through in more of a one-on-one setting! If you want to try at pen pals email me:

Hi Jocammie,

I'm a 26 year old female and was just diagnosed with celiac disease a month ago. I live with my husband and our foster son, both of whom eat gluten. I'm a full time University student and work as a social worker with teens. I am a huge sports nut :)

I've found this forum very supportive and helpful at learning about celiac disease and adjusting to the gluten-free diet. It's been a bit of a roller coaster up and down since my Dx!

Anyway, if you want to chat with a fellow Celiac female around your age, feel free to add me to FB or MSN -- jillian_enright@hotmail.com

Good luck to all of us!

Jillian

Hello there!!

Well I have to let you know you are not alone at all! I'm 21 years old and have had Celiac's for 17 years now... So for me, its become what I am used to but I understand how difficult it is for others. If you would like to discuss anything at all, feel free to. I have A LOTTTT of experience with the challenges faced and have had many issues as well. My email is klull.18@gmail.com. Drop a line or two or any questions.

Sincerely,

Kim

I am 60 years old and anybody here who wants to exchange emails with me concerning celiac disease is free to. I never figured it out until I was 56 and had discomfort that long.
