  1. My 18 year old daughter is about to move to Melbourne for 4 months. She has celiac disease. I'd like to ask the same question missGfree asked 3 years ago. Any tips to help her transition. Does anyone know if they have gluten free Chex cereal? Shaar pasta? What's the best bread for sandwiches to take to school? Thanks for any tips.
  2. Finally Feeling Better After.....

    Thanks for writing about your daughter. My daughter is 16. She had mono two years ago and that's when her troubles began. Daily stomach pain and headaches. After many visits to her doctor, gastro and neuro doctors, she was finally diagnosed with celiac disease. She went gluten free on October 1 and proceeded to get worse. We saw a specialist in Baltimore and were told to hang in there that it could take months for her to feel better. She's been miserable. I keep looking for encouragement on this website and finally joined today. I'm afraid to say this for fear of jinxing it but yesterday was the first day my daughter has not complained about her stomach. She woke up today and didn't say anything either. She had a smile on her face -- which I rarely see these days. Oh how I hope this is the beginning of her trip back to feeling good.
