  1. Kissing Problem.

    The mood swings and your allergy are probably not related, especially due to the large gap in time.
  2. Teen Guys?

    Clubbing is really not a problem. I go out every weekend and I just drink stuff that I know is gluten free. Problem is mainly drinking in more moderation since the stomach is usually rather weak, thus it's easier to feel queasy / sick.
  3. I know! That really cracked me up. As well as the Spanish Entry.
  4. I don't really mind that we don't win. I just watch it for some good laughs with friends. Because seriously, some of the songs verge on stupid
  5. Yeah, people here take the esc way too seriously. We're not in the dance competition, but you'll see us in the song contest for sure. (even though block voting = we never win )
  6. Hah! I'm from Malta, Europe. I doubt anyone's from here
  7. Teen Guys?

    Actually, when me and my friends eat out it's often a barbecue, which is great since I love cooking and this way I can read all of the products there are . But when we do go out, I just order for myself. There's always something that is wheat free and my friends don't make a fuss about it, which is great; But yes, dating isn't a problem. I'm not really that into it, but I have gone out with girls, and they never really made a fuss about it.

  10. Our house isn't gluten free at all. Normally, I eat stuff my family eats (chicken / potatoes / rice) but when it comes to stuff that contains wheat, such as pasta, my mum prepares my food first then prepares the rest of the food. That way, my food isn't contaminated and the rest of the family can still enjoy their food. It works well. I have never had reactions of any kind and my family would be pretty disappointed if they had to cut their foods because of me, and I understand them. But then again, my mother doesn't bake things that contain wheat, and all food is given by the pharmacy rather than made, so that could be a factor.
  11. When I was about 8 months or so, I was half the weight I was supposed to be because my parents started feeding me things that contained gluten. So while you will not be as tall as you could have been, you might (and will probably) grow taller. Same for weight Sorry, no. If poor eye-sight is in the family, then probably not. Same for other allergies. My cousin was diagnosed as a celiac about age 20-ish after it having come out for about 3 months (though it stopped after a few months, since it came out because she was taking drugs, which rehab thankfully fixed). She never had problems with eye-sight or other allergies (external ones such as cats / pollen / etc.) Though she did have an outbreak of acne and a very very weak stomach I suggest the same as Ursa Major. Avoid eating anything that could make your stomach quesy. Milks and Dairy products mostly, at least until you get back on your feet. Here's hoping for the best! They shouldn't be that bad, but they are still heavier on the stomach than cooked once. Though again, they shouldn't be a problem Soy milks are more easily digested, and are easier to digest than normal milks, but are still not that easy to digest. If you can cut back, at least until you feel healthier it would be best. If you feel you cannot stop drinking it, just don't drink too much. According to which. Some have acids, some don't. I don't drink a lot of tea, but a quick google for tea shows that some don't have acids (Jasmine Tea) while some do (Orange Spice Assam). Onions have acids (Part of the reason they make you cry). I don't think garlic / potatoes do Best case right now is to totally cut off wheats (obviously) and cut off other things that make you feel bad. Go for a case by case basis, since there isn't a common denominator to what is effecting you
  12. Hi, another celiac here new to the forums I was diagnosed at 14 months of age, and now I'm 16 and well. @Alli. My parents also informed my old school I was celiac, mainly because I entered when I was 10 years, and still not completely aware of what I was allergic of. But after that one time, my parents had no more contact with the school regarding being celiac. When I used to go to camps or such, my mum would always enter and explain things. It could be a bit irritating at times, but I just accepted it. The main issue here is trust. If you can show your parents that you can uphold your diet they will start trusting you. For these last two years, any camp / dinner I went to, I ordered for myself because now they know that I know my condition better than they do (since I'm the only celiac in my family. Well my father is slightly intolerant but he still takes gluten). Also, as for completely emotional. Yes, I do. It's called being a teenager. Everyone passes through such days at our age. We just have something to blame it on (even though it might not be directly influential.) @CranberryThief. Give them a few months to understand that you can handle it on yourself. They'll start backing off slowly themselves. Also, Aim / MSN / Y!IM should be in my profile. Anyone feel free to hit me up. I tend to suffer from boredom a bit
  13. Whenever I go to friends house's, I usually just take my own food. If for some reason they cannot prepare it, I prepare it myself either before visiting my friend's house (stuff that taste good cold should work here such as rice salads) or at my friend's house, since I can cook my own pasta . Other than that, my friends are supportive by not making a big fuss out of it. I like the fact that they don't act as though I'm different. We go out for a barbecue, they just read labels for "100% beef" or something and get those rather than fussing about it and telling me to get my own. So in the end, I'd say understanding was the way they helped me
