  1. Hey Eddie......Im Liz 20 years old also diagnosed only a short time ago (week and ahalf) i feel your anger.......I feel like this "disease" is ridiculous and impractical......the world hardly seems to accomodate for this.....feel free to IM me sometime LLzard10 and we can piss and moan together!
  2. Ummm I was diagnose liek a week ago and im in shock theres no pill for this and frankly I dont know how anyone wouldnt want to take it! JUST THINK PIZZA!!! so if someone could make up a pill i would be ALLLLL ABOUT IT!!! BRING ON THE GLUTEN PILL!!!!
  3. well since im still so new at this gluten-free stuff I went to friendlys(chain in new england) the other day to get ice cream and i asked the waitress to ask the manager if there ice cream contained gluten.....and she came back and said " umm yea all ice cream does cuz its made with sugar" i was laughing so hard! I mean i am not knowledgable on this gluten-free stuff but i thought everyone new glucose is sugar not gluten!! anyways i thought it was funny...needless to say i didnt partake in any ice cream to be safe
  4. Alcohol

    Hi Im new at this gluten-free stuff....Im a big fan of Vodka......any vodkas we can drink? certain brand for sure? THANKS!!! ~LIZ~
  5. Ok so my question is this..........I just was diagnosed last week......but i dont understand because i wasnt ever like SICK from this, all i got was a lot of the runs What do you all mean when u say you were sick. I never lost weight nothing like the symptoms.....now im wondering if i continue on my way eating gluten whats wrong with some diarhia? its not like i feel sick from it? i was diagnosed through blood tests and the more i hear the more i feel i dont have this....or maybe im in denial? i dunno....i just feel like I dont feel sick if I eat gluten so why should i stop and then if i ever eat it again actually feel sick? I dunno if this makes sence to anyone but just whats in my head. THanks! ~Liz~

  7. Birth Control Pill

    i was just diagnosed with Celiac 4 days ago.....just curious if my pill would possibly better or worsen this disease..i take Ovcon....I DO NOT WANT BABIES!! to young for that!
  8. I was just daignosed with Celiac about 4 days ago...I also was doing weight watchers. I had only started like 3 weeks earlier from my diagnoses but now i gave up cuz i thought im not gonna be able to eat anything on this gluten-free diet nevermind weight wacthers......am i wrong? I am only 20 years old...im not FAT but im chucky.......and I dont want to be chunky anymore though and just when I was starting to fix the problem a bigger one comes along .....do most people gain weight on this gluten-free diet? I DO NOT WANT TO GAIN WEIGHT! ~Liz~
  9. Im only 20 years old and 4 days ago I was diagnosed with celiac.....my doctor left me with NO information other than a thin packet that wasnt really helpful. I am so confused about what i can and connot eat.....i feel like i cant go out with my friends to eat or out to a bar cuz im confused about what i will be able to drink. Im very angry and wonder if there is any way my doctors diagnoses is wrong.....I had blood work done that tested positve...and they are going with that? Is that really that accurate?? Anyones input would probly help right now.....Thanks! ~Liz~
