hi there,

Unfortunately, I am unable to find **any** local support groups in Boston. :unsure: I am aware of The Healthy Villi (and joined a month or so ago)...their meetings are OUTSIDE the general Boston area. I understand this is due to traffic volume issues. However, this poses a problem to people (like me!) who do not own a car. :(

Is there a way to get a Boston group going? Actually **IN** the city of Boston...or at the very least, accessible by the MBTA system? (Preferably by train, not by bus.)

Otherwise, if anyone attends the Healthy Villi meetings, would they be willing to give us car-less folk a ride to the meetings?

I am at wits' end looking for a support group. I was just diagnosed earlier this year and mostly have a grip on it, but I would still like a support system of folks who have gone through the same illness as me.

thank you,

Lisa

Hi Lisa -- unfortunately I can't be of help in getting to the Healthy Villi meeting as we probably won't go this time. However, I did want to let you know that the Not Your Average Joe's Restaurant in Watertown is very willing to accommodate gluten free diners. Apparently, they are in the midst of planning a specific gluten free menu too, but even now they are very friendly. (I live in Newton)

I used to love going to Not Your Average Joe's in Needham (where I worked) and Watertown (where I lived)! I haven't been there since before I was diagnosed and used to LOVE eating their bread with that olive oil/garlic/cheese dipping sauce.

I now live in NJ, but I'm glad to know that NYAJ is going to have a gluten-free menu - it will be good for when I visit.

The dipping sauce for the bread itself is gluten free, so if you bring your own bread, they will mix up the sauce.

Would anyone seriously be interested in meeting up in/around Boston?

Hi there, so I know this thread has been not answered in a while, but if anyone out there in Boston or thereabouts is still interested in getting together, I'm game. My name is Liz, I work in Medford (there is a Not Your Average Joe's in my office complex!) and it's accessible by MBTA orange line at Wellington Station. I am also willing to travel around the city and to the south shore as well, as I live in Marshfield...and have a car...so if anyone hears of a good support group, and wants to go, I'm willing to carpool. Or if we just want to start our own group, we can do that too!

Darn it, I just lost my post. Anyway, I live in Brookline, work in JP, and am a member of the Healthy Villi, but also am dependent on public trans. I was thinking awhile ago about starting a dinner group with local celiacs in the area, but have since added other things to my platter and don't have enough time anymore for that, really.

However, I'd be very open to meeting up with all of you. We could just head downtown and grab a bite at Legals or PF Changs. None of my friends have celiac and they're probably sick of hearing about it! :D

There's also a place out by me in Washington Square that has Redbridge and are aware of celiac disease and know enough about the diet to be able to make gluten free stuff, I've heard.

Looking forward to meeting you all!

~Sally
