I was in Florida but have moved. There is a great support group in Orlando! Look them up and try to go to a meeting, if you can. :)

Hey! I know this was posted last month..but I haven't been on here in awhile. I'm 21 and I live in Florida! I'm from the Tampa Bay area originally but live in Tallahassee now for school. I've had Celiac Disease for 19...almost 20 years :) don't worry it gets better. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

HI! I"m 28 in the Daytona Beach area. Have a 3 year old, and a 5 year old. Waiting on test results to come back next week. Have been gluten-free for 2 weeks now. Was also on Dr. Phil in Sept, and if it wasn't for all his show has done for me, I would have NEVER known!

I can't find any support groups in the area and thinking about starting one.

I'm 26 and I live in Orlando. Has anyone tried dating after being diagnosed? I've heard horror stories about kissing a guy after he had a few beers and then being sick...I'm unsure how paranoid I need to be in that aspect. Any tips?

Also, if anyone has any questions about eating out in the Orlando area, especially Disney, please don't hesitate to contact me! I've been living here for almost 2 years now, so I've had a good chance to scope out some favorite restaurants. :)

jparsick84, you don't have to be that paranoid in my opinion -- of course, we all have differing levels of sensitivity and you will hear of people that do not worry about such things and people that would never dream of kissing someone who had had a beer. I make my husband rinse his mouth out after beer, and brush his teeth after eating gluten. I haven't ever gotten sick from kissing him. :)

I can vouch for the kissing thing, IT SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!, I guess everyone is different though, but one night I kissed a guy after he had eaten pizza a few hours earlier and I still got glutened... I read in a book somewhere that if you are dating a not gluten free person make sure they brush there teeth before you ever kiss them to avoid the horrible consequences.

I'm Christy, from the Tallahassee area and have been gluten free since September of 2010. I was diagnosed a few years after a family member found out she had it. Just wanted to say hello!

Hi, My name is Laura I live in Cocoa Fl. My Son who is 14 almost died of type 1 Diabetes, I went to the library to get info on Diabetes and a cook book, in the same area I found a book for ADHD & Autism cookbook going gluten free and casein free which my second son is very hyper with low concentration? So I picked up that book too, to my realization all the symtoms that were described in the book was what I myself was feeling... So being un-employed with no insurance I went on an internet scout of my own and found some very interesting and scary facts about type 1 Diabetes and Celiac Disease. After a day of information overload, I went to my cabinet and filled three boxes full of food and frozen foods that I imediately gave away went to the store to see what I and my family can eat. I bought bread flour and all the other things that I could imediately eat and fix for dinner. From that day on which has been two weeks now, I can get out of bed without feeling bad and I have eaten food that does not make my stomach hurt, and I do remember things now. Not sure if I am Coeliac or not but the whole Me is much better. I told my ex to take my oldest son to the Dr. to get the test ( he has insurance for him ) hopefully he will, have not heard or not. Thanks for the vent session. If there is anyone out there with input or more info that will help feel free to let me know...
