  1. Happy birthday!

  2. Sounds like Celiac to me....you might want to get her tested for Lupus as well.
  3. I notice after eating badly I wake up the next day feeling really dizzy....has anyone else experienced this feeling. It usually lasts for 2 - 3 days, sometimes it has gone on for a week! I assume it is because of my celiac, but not certain. It is the most uneasy feeling...anyone?
  4. I am a fairly "new" Celiac patient. I am still trying to adjust, it's hard to do. I keep looking for and reading up on recipies, and I notice that alot of people mention Xanthan gum? I am not familiar with this product. Where do you buy it, and what is it? Is it a filler? What does it taste like? Sorry....so many questions! I'm trying to get a grip on this new lifestyle....It gets so difficult at times, frustrating. Well, thank you all for the great suggestions and information that you share with all of us. -Moe
  5. Thank you so, so much for your suggestions! I have become so depressed with the meal choices that I felt limited to. I eat rice, salads, and fish and chicken everyday, and to be really honest with you....I'm tired of it. I was diagnosed about 5 months ago, and I guess I just don't try hard enough. I sometimes feel like "Oh well, I'll feel sick and then when it passes, I'll feel better." I know that this is so unhealthy for me, but haven't found the will power to stick to the rules of my health. Might be hard to believe, but this has been actually harder to overcome, and adjust to than quitting smoking for me. No joke. My fiance is the most wonderful man. He supports me and urges me to follow the gluten free diet. I know that it must frustrate him that I cheat, but I can't seem to get my mind programed the right way! He took me to Trader Joe's for the first time the day after I was diagnosed. I actually had a breakdown IN THE STORE! The humiliation was unbearable. I am continually trying to be a better patient, it isn't easy. I have tried gluten free bread.....no good. It fell apart in my hands and then I just got upset and threw the rest of the loaf away. I eat so much rice that I am starting to think that maybe I shouldn't be? I eat Jasmine, Basmatti, and boil in the bag white rice. I love rice, but everyday? Sorry....I guess I'm just venting now. The tears are creaping up, so I'll sign off. THank you again for the list of foods that I can add. Your suggestions will be so helpful to me.
