I graduated with a dregee from UNI in Graphic Design and Painting (my true passion).<br /><br />I was diagnosed with celiac disase May 2007 exactly 2 months after my mother passed away. She struggled with breast cancer for 5 years that then turned to terminal bone cancer six after. She is truely in a better place. And i know that anything i am going through now is in no comparrison to what she had to go through. <br /><br />one of the many things that keeps me going and keeping my head up in life!

  1. ugh... i am also feeling the "food uncertanty" with weddings. I am in three weddings next summer (hello stress and a lot of dresses). My couzin has already told me that she will have a gluten free option for me and my sister-in-law and if anyone else need be. Though one of my good friends (2nd wedding i am in) told me nothing on her menu was gluten free (she thought) nor did she want to call the cateror or give me the info.... hmmmm wierd i know! too much work? i was a bit baffeld at her for this. but i am wondering... sitting at the head table would it be better to accomodate myself... or to just not eat and eat before? I am very torn on the issue as I do not want to upset anyone nor do i want others to be like "why is that girl not eating?" Its not my day and im not one who likes the spotlight but am a bit self concious about it. Any suggestions? (this wedding is also on a very suburban farm in the middle of iowa... not much goin on oin the food world) O yea the 3rd wedding... its a block away from my dad's house. i can be my own chef:) Thanks for all the support already from everyone on this site!!!! lu
  2. I was wondfing if you would possibly send me the information on the gluten free list. I have just been recently diagnosed and it would help me out tons! lindsay.nickol@gmail.com
  3. It is so great to hear that there are others out there with the same problems on top of our celiac disease. My largest worry is I am with someone very serious and we speak of getting married soon. I have wanted nothing more in my life than to wear my mothers wedding dress (she has passed away and i know it would mean the world to her) Fortunately she was the same body structure as myself. Unfortunately i have a bit to go before the zipper gets all the way up and it can become a reality to wear it. Does anyone have any suggestions out there for me? I eat nothing but gluten free things though i do eat a good amount of cheese and only have a treat pry once a week and gluten free pasta once a week. Other than that its basically fruits veggies and lean meats. Im stuck and am really looking for some help.
  4. Well this is my first blog and I just wanted to share with everyone what a great time I had at Granite City. I ordered a steak w/out the onion strings and my waiter asked right off the bat if I had celiac disease. I said yes and he was like , well, let me go and ask the chef if you can have anything else. My steak and the potatoes I had with it were gluten free and I also had a small cup of the chilli. It was so nice to go out (it was my bf's bday) and have a real meal with someone special and have my waiter care enough to meet my needs. My tummy is the happiest its been in a couple months:) Thank you for the posts from everyone else you all have been extremely helpful!
