Hello;

I am a new member to this site as well. Just thought that I would let you know that I am from Windsor,Ontario,but currently residing in the US. I have Celiac Disease now for 32 years and I can relate to the difficulty of people finding you to be different!!

Hope to hear from you soon!! :P

Hey everyone,

Just wondering - other than Il Fornello/Outback/Swiss Chalet.. The basics, what gluten free restaurants have you been to in Ontario?

Hi, I am in Alliston, about 50 miles north of Toronto (southwest of Barrie). I am 52 years old, and just figured out two and a half weeks ago that I've had full blown celiac disease all summer, and gluten intolerance all my life (was diagnosed with fibromyalgia). Yesterday I found that it is likely lectin intolerance (which includes gluten), which leaves me with very little I can eat :blink: . But avoiding gluten and other things I am intolerant to for these two weeks has made an incredible difference to the way I am feeling, I know I am on the right track, finally!

I feel weird too, having to tell people I can't eat so many things. Because they don't understand that it makes me feel desperately ill if I 'cheat' on my diet. Most people think of cheating on a diet means eating sweets or something like that on a weight loss diet, and they don't have a clue that you absolutely cannot do that with this diet.

Anyone want to meet up for chat and dinner or coffee? Like a support group?

If it was within the general GTA vicinity, I could try...... It would definitely have to be a Saturday though. That way, Terry could stay home with the kids and I could actually have a relaxing outing!!!! (If anyone watches Desperate Housewives, I AM SOOOOOO LYNETTE!!!!!) :P

If anyone looks at your differently cause you have Celiac I'd think they were pretty ignorant and rude,and good riddance. Celiac doesnt make you a freak. It's very common these days. Anyway, welcome, cause I'm new too.

Well, it doesn't really look like a lot of people want to meet up.

Darn, I thought that would get a lot of responses. <_<:(

Hi guys,

I'm not from Canada, but I'm at the Niagara Falls from November 5th to the 11th and right beside my hotel there's an Outback's Steakhouse. Don't laugh, it was pure co-incidence. So I thought some of you guys want to meet there this week??? I already got one private message from somebody. I want to keep it private, that's why I'm not telling who it is. But if others want to meet as well, or even see me compete this week (it's the World Championships!!!), you're more than welcome to.

You can write me a personal message, respond to this thread or respond to the thread with my sports diary, if you like.

Hugs, Stef

Hello!

I'm new to the forums, after more than seven years of being sick, it seems we've finally narrowed it down to gluten, and my already diagnosed lactose issues. Anyways, I'm from the core of Toronto. Nice to meet you all! I don't have any gluten free/celiac friends either, so it would be nice to have some local people to talk to :)
