This weekend I was in the Bakersfield, California area visting my folks. We went to Bakersfield to a place called Lassen's. It is a family owned store similar to Whole Foods. They had a lot of great gluten-free products. The best thing about that visit was that one of the employees is a Celiac. We were able to talk a bit. After I left I realized that this was the first time that I was able to talk face to face with someone else who is dealing with celiac disease. It felt GREAT!!! :D I've asked this before...anyone reading this from Fresno, CA??? :unsure:

Hi Kathleen,

I am in your area. We talked on email a few times, but I lost my entire email address book, so I haven't contacted anyone in a while. Please email me and we can plan a time to get together.

god bless,

Mariann

Hi Kathleen,

I recently moved to Fresno from San Jose (just a bit south/west of Clovis). I am classified as "gluten-intolerant" rather than celiac because I have not been diagnosed via the biopsy. Regardless of the label, however, I need to be gluten-free to stay healthy. I was diagnosed almost 2 years ago, so have some experience with the disease and the emotional impact it can have on your life. I don't know much about Fresno yet, but would be happy to talk to you any time. Feel free to email. - Alicia

Hey, I am here in Clovis, just diagnosed last week, feeling lonely and like I've entered a bizarre universe!! Thankfully, Trader Joe's saved my life.

This thread is from last summer, but if you guys check it again, let me know! We could meet for gluten-free coffee..... :rolleyes:

Hi Susan...I havn't been on this board in a long while. I just read your message from the beginning of this year. Wish I had read it earlier. I know what you mean by a bizarre universe. After 6 months ...how are you feeling...Kathleen

Hi, I am pretty close to you, living in Bakersfield, going to Fresno often as my husband attends FSU. I love Lassen's as well. The owner there takes a real interest in Celiac's and Gluten intolerance as well as Wheat intol. Their Kinnikinik bread is THE BOMB.
