  2. This is a great thread....but at the same time it just makes me BLAH. It is just hard for me to comprehind how family just doesn't believe us!! Thanks for all of the post/replies I appreciate them! Andi....Yes she is pretty grown up for her age. Around my family (that always asks first), she will tell them "No, Gigi, I can't have that." And it's no big deal. She is so great at it! It really shocked me to be honest with you. But she is very good at knowing what she can and can't eat, and ALWAYS asks or tries to read the label herself . But I think her dad is very intemidating to her. And she doesn't want to be disobedient, but at the same time she does try to tell him she can't eat that stuff. Oh...Thanks for the koodos for the munchkins, but I am actually engaged and the 2 wonderful little boys are his. The 2 girlies are mine from the previous marriage. But again! Thank you! (And I do have my hands full, but I have a wonderful man that helps me so very much! He's just great!) Still waiting on the other test to come back.....
  3. HI everyone! I am new to this forum....wish I would have found it long ago! I have very much enjoyed reading all of your posts! I have a similar issue.....But it involves an ex-husband. I was diagnosed with celiac disease a couple of years ago, and have done MUCH better since! I am in the process of having my oldest daughter (9) tested for celiac disease. One of the blood tests came back already and it showed she has the DQ2 gene, so she is a carrier they said. Still waiting on the other blood work. In the mean time.....I was recently divorced (Feb 2007). Of course while with her all the time, me fixing all of the meals, I was able to control what she ate, now she goes to visit her dad every other weekend and he lets her eat whatever she wants! He has NO clue about the disease, doesn't care to learn and thinks I am "depriving my child of kid foods". And tells her that I am making this all up!! He is just awful. He will take himself and both daughters to CiCi's Pizza, they ate Lasagna last weekend. He tells her that he will spank her if she doesn't eat!! I am just at a lose to why he wants to hurt his daughter! He is not the one that has to stay up with her for 2 days/nights with stomach ache/throwing up when he sends her home. As soon as I get all of the paperwork, I have no other choice I guess and take him to court over it???? I have already gotten CPS involved, but they are clueless about this disease, and they can't stand next to him everytime he gets the kiddos. I'm at a loss..... SO....any suggestions?
