  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Thankyou everyone for your comments and advice. I was feeling pretty down but now after reading your responses I feel much stronger now and ready to push on and follow my own plan for good health ignoring unhelpful, hurtful comments from those around me. Goodluck to everyone in your gluten-free journey.
  3. Can anyone give me some advice on what to say to friends and family who think you are a little bit crazy because you avoid eating gluten? My Chinese Herbalist suggested I have DH and I'm positive she's right. I don't want to have the official tests done - they seem like a waste of time and money for an inconclusive result. So, I'm trying to follow a gluten free diet (although the hidden gluten and CC is causing me trouble). My motherinlaw gave me a doubting look and asked me if I was sure that I wasn't just going through menopause? My brotherinlaw asked what proof did I have? and why has this suddenly happened? If I mention celiac and can just feel them sniggering. And these are people who are supposed to be my "loved ones". I just feel like I want to crawl into a box somewhere and hide.
  4. Hi, I'm new to the forum. My Chinese herbalist recently suggested that this could be my problem (dh). I was really interested in how you signed off about "chocolate". I am just discovering "hidden gluten". Does chocolate have hidden gluten?
