  1. Hi CurtissAnn, I have Celiac Disease and live in West Mobile, AL. I have been thinking about trying to start up some type of dinner group, but haven't found the time or motivation yet. :-) I have also been thinking about sending a letter to some of the locally-owned restaurants around town to see if they will identify gluten in their menus or come up with some gluten-free options. There are definitely a lot of Celiacs around Mobile - I keep meeting people in the gluten-free section of my local Bruno's and Winn-Dixie. -Melissa
  2. Hi, I was diagnosed about 3 weeks ago. It really stinks. I feel your pain. I have had no digestive symptoms, but was having numbness in my face and arms, and muscle cramping all over. I'm so tired of people saying, "Well, you'll probably lose a lot of weight!" (I'm not overweight). As if they think I'm now on some sort of great Atkins diet! I'm learning how to eat, but I think I end up eating gluten about every other day. Today I went to Taco Bell for lunch. I ordered 3 hard corn tacos, thinking I was being smart. Well, I found out they were full of gluten, after I gobbled them down. Oh well, ya live ya learn. Anyway, I've found a few things that help: 1. Check your local library for the book: Celiac Disease, The Hidden Epidemic. This is a great book for info on all areas of this illness. 2. Ener-G Pizza Crusts - You can order them off of (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) and get them a lot cheaper than the health food stores, plus no shipping or tax. They are soooo good. The thought of having no more pizza was one of the most depressing things for me. Good Luck!!!!
