My oldest is going into 6th grade. He will be 11 in October. I would like to get him interested in posting here, so he could talk about how he is feeling about the diet, issues at school, etc. but so far no luck. The only other person he knows in "real life" that is gluten intolerant besides his family, is a girl who is also 10 and my friend's daughter. He can't stand to be around her. She annoys him so badly and they fight everytime they are near each other. They actually got into a physical fight on the playground (she grqabbed his shirt and pinched him hard on the back, so he kicked her in the back) and they were told not to play near each other for the rest of the year! LOL, it was two weeks before summer vacation! Certainly they don't confide in each other about how they feel about the diet. I just feel like it is important for him to have other people in the same situation who can understand how he is feeling. It just doesn't seem to be important to him right now.

God bless,

Mariann

Hi gf4life, I can't seem to find anybody on this board my same age. I am going into 6th grade as well and am going gluten-free. Maybe your son and me could PM each other, that way he'd might feel more comfortable :)

Thank you all for welcoming me to the teen boards. I guess I have alot to learn about the gluten-free diet.

I asked him and he sayed, "maybe". He is thinking about it. I'll let you know what he decides (or he will). :) He liked your Avatar though. He thought it was cool!

God bless,

He can e-mail me if he wants to. There's a bit of an age difference, but not too much and I'd be happy to talk...no pressure, though, it's fine if he'd rather not. :)

I talked to my daughter and she will soon be posting, or at least reading your posts, in this section. I just wanted to make sure it was permitted, since she is not a teenager. I am concerned that some topics might not be appropriate because I do know that sometimes topics veer off course. Not that I think there is going to be anything bad, just not appropriate for an 11 year old. I will monitor her though. I know she will enjoy hearing from other celiacs in the same (general) age group because, as I stated previously, she does not have anyone her age to talk about celiac disease with. She is not too computer savy though, so please go easy on her (haha). She will probably have a name like surfgirl or something so watch out for her!! Thanks! :P

Hey, Ben, are you Mariann's son or are you a different Ben?

Yep...those avatars :lol: ...I started with the waterfall a few weeks after I got here. A few weeks later I changed waterfalls. After a few months, I gave up on trying to find a cute, funny, or interesting avatar.... oh well, I figure that at least people know if they see a waterfall, it's probably me. With some of them, I just see the picture and I don't need to read the name...

Feel free to e-mail me! (that applies to you and anyone else)

Teku is the name of a racing team created by HotWheels and their Acceleracers movies. First I got a HotWheels toy called a hyperpod. It came with a DVD and I watched it. It was a prequel and teku was not in it. My brother got episode 1 and teku was in it. Then we got episodes 2 and 3. Which is 1 movie when you watch them together. I like teku out of 4 teams because they have the coolest cars. That weird symbol is the teku's symbol. My brother wants me to put the ninja so I will. :ph34r:

    Thank you for all of the suggestions and information.  I will see a lot of the symptoms that I have that I didn't mention listed caused by lack of certain enzymes.  I have blood tests every 3 months. That is when I noticed my cholesterol, etc. not in check.  I eat too many carbohydrates because it causes less diarrhea than a lot of vegetables.  But in talking to 3 of my sisters they are already on medication for the problem.   One has Celiacs the other has Sjorgrens which I also have.  I'm conce
    For the fog and memory, it can be many things, the brain requires certain ratios and amounts of fat to function, it also requires b-vitamins the full spectrum among other amino acids, minerals and vitamins, nerve functions require magnesium, potassium and other things to fire right.  Celiac can hamper the ability to break down and absorb nutrients, digestive issues and enzymes can further complicate this, and trying to eat the right ratios of foods.

    I am interested in your comments about losing your memory.  I have Celiacs and IBS, etc.   Very difficult to eat a healthy diet.  One goes against the other.  The past year I have noticed a marked difference in my memory and was very concerned about it because my mother had Alzheimer's.  I had a brain scan but that is not the problem at least it doesn't show up on the MRI.  All of my blood enzymes are way out of line for my size and I'm thinking it's the diet and inability to do extensive exerci
