  1. Yes!!!! What area are you in? If you are in Portland, I know of an entire network of small business owners and folks dedicated to helping small businesses succeed. I work for a CPA who's passion is to help the local economy grow. She is not your typical buttoned down CPA - she wears birkenstocks to work, and has hair hanging down to her behind, however she is very well respected in our community for her skill, understanding and expertise. She works with business owners all over the country, and if you want a free consultation with her where you can talk about anything from advertising, setting up your business entity, how to set up Quickbooks to reflect the flow of your business, how to prepare for taxes, how to determine pricing, and how to hook up and network with a ton of excellent sources, then give me a call - I am her admin assistant - at 503 244 6905. And if you want to get started in Portland, I know of just the person for you to meet - a caterer named Carrie Peacock who works with people on restricted diets, but is having trouble meeting the needs of her celiac clients. I could see that being a good way for you to form an alliance. She's a very intelligent person too, who prefers cooperation above competition. I even have a suggestion for a commercial space! In to diffrent parts of town! So I am excited for you. Please let me know how this goes, I am very curious. From Wendy
  2. Hi, Before I knew I had trouble with gleuten, I was in intense pain all the time, I was in pain for so long, I thought everyone felt this way all the time and I made a habit of ignoring it. Can you beleive it? But since I cut out wheat products, and things contaminated with wheat, I have experienced my first pain free days ever! However, now that I am pain free most of the time, I realize what a pain in the booty my menstral cramps are. Man do they hurt! I am having a hell of a time with menstral cramps, not to mention if I get a headache, I am pretty much screwed. My doctor says that she does not know of any pain medications I can take that would not be totally overkill - she suggested some herbal stuff, but it is not cutting it. Before I knew I had celiac issues, I took ibeuprofin. I heard that in Canada, they have meds that I can take, but that is the extent of my lead: meaning I have no idea what meds, where to get them or why they might be OK coming from out of Canada, much less how to order them. Any help here? This is interfering with my ability to focus at work, to sleep and feel comfortable doing everyday things. And the worst part, is that this is going to continue to happen once a month for the rest of my life!!! Any helpful suggestions would be much appreciated. From Wendy
