    I'm a 20 yr old college student studying Computer Science at USC. I'm also going for a minor in French. Abiding by a gluten-free diet is new to me, and is sure to be a challenge...

    Columbia, SC - USC
  1. True, but I missed being at Woodstock. At least my generation has Bonnaroo and Coachella.
  2. Well, being born in the early 90s, I missed most of the good music that America has to offer (60s, 70s).
  3. Ohhh! I should've added that It's the gluten that left it out, not me! I wanna have the band play in the same room while I consummate my marriage... whenever that happens lol And with the Mayan calendar ending in December, I don't think we'll have to worry about those 88 years.
  4. Do the poll, talk about the band. If you haven't heard of them, do not vote until you have heard atleast these songs: *Wake Up *Keep the Car Running *Rebellions (Lies)
  5. Welcome to the club! I've been diagnosed for 2 and a half months now.
  6. Celiac is called the Celtic disease...
  7. Haven't been there since going gluten-free, but since it's a smoothie place - what kind of problem could there be? Gluten doesn't normally come in a smoothie, does it? You should be safe. But I'd stay away from their cookies/snacks.
  8. Stumbled upon this on youtube a few weeks back actually. I must agree, it's an awesome song. The lyrics are perfect and the singing/guitar playing is great as well! Great job and hopefully this'll bring more awareness to our disease. And P.S. reveal yourself!
  9. Thanks Bubba's Mom! I appreciate your answer. I suspect it may have been cc'd. It's a shame... as careful as you can be, you can never be totally sure you're always eating gluten-free and that's a bummer because I just want to heal!
  10. I've been Gluten free for 3 and a half weeks. In my opinion, I've been pretty careful to only eat gluten-free products. Just this past week, I've had vertigo a couple of times after sitting down/sitting up. I am also a college student and just during this past week have I noticed a couple times where I feel very uncoordinated and it feels as if my body is wobbly and with each step I have to additionally reassure myself to keep myself "up straight" so as not to fall over (left or right). I had vertigo and ataxia a couple times before going gluten-free, but they were sporadic and few (maybe twice a month for vertigo but nearly daily for weird unbalanced walking). Why do I still feel like I can't walk a staight line? I actually can walk a straight line but I have to focus on not teetering to the right or left. What about the vertigo? Could it just be from vitamin deficiencies since going gluten-free? I think I'm eating a pretty balanced diet still.
  11. I need to put a picture of me young self up right now. I'm 20 so my hair is in it's prime. Full auburn, I suppose. It's interesting that Celiac is considered the cetlic disease. When did the Celiac gene develop and is there any advantage to it?

  13. Umm as far as I am aware, I haven't had a reaction to MSG. I haven't kept a diet-record. But main question is: gluten causing this, and will a gluten-free diet heal the issue?
