  1. Oh wow this happens to ME! I was diagnosed in August and I have been gluten free until 2 days ago. My kids asked for cookies at the store. Normally I would make them myself but I said ok to the treat. Well of course the kids wanted one now. I put one in my mouth w/o thinking!! I had to RACE home to go to the bathroom, had back pain and shoulder pain for the remainder of the day. I NEVER thought that it could be from the gluten.
  2. I feel like I am going through withdrawl. I have been Gluten free for a few weeks but today I could and want to eat an entire pizza. I just want something that is filled with everything I cant have. Is this something that I will go through or does it go away??
  3. I am only 40 minutes from Philly...Close to Conshohocken and Montgomeryville
  4. Thanks! I am looking forward to meeting some people and hope to find a support group nearby...I kinda had a breakdown the other day when I couldnt enjoy dessert after Sunday dinner. So I think maybe I would benefit from some support!
  5. hi! I am from PA! right outside philly...Montgomery county!!
  6. Hello! My name is Alicia in live in PA and I was recently diagnosed with Celiacs. I have been struggling for YEARS. I was admitted to the hospital several years ago for an 11 pound weight loss in 3 days due to severe diarrhea but was told I had a stomach bug. I have always been food sensative...in fact a doctor told my parents when I was 9 that it was red meat that was bothering my sensative belly...so I am now 33 and have not had a drop of red meat since age 9. About 1 year ago I got fed up and started my quest to feel better. 1 year later I am almost there. I have been gluten free for 13 days. For the first time in my life I went 2 days w/o going to the bathroom (ahem..#2)...I am not suffering from bloat...not so tired that I could fall asleep at the wheel....Each day I feel alittle better. I LOVE to cook so I have to redo my pantry a bit..lol. But that is ok!!! So anyway...just want to say HI!
