  1. Dating

    I don't know about the rest of you, but eating out when you're dating someone knew is not fun! This guy I went out with a few times loves to order dessert--which is usually chocolate cake. I feel so bad not eating it--almost as though I'm being rude. I still haven't told him that I avoid wheat and gluten. I don't want him to think that I'm strange or that it's all in my head--my own family don't believe me, but my symptoms are very real...
  2. Acne

    I find that anytime I eat something I'm not supposed to I get really gassy and the next day I wake up with a pimple! Anyone else get this? I seem to get more acne if I accidentally ingest gluten. And it's not the surface kind--it's the burrowing painful bump kind. Just curious!

    Thanks for the welcome all!
  4. Hello all! I'm new to this message board (although not new to this site). I'm 24/f living in San Francisco. I started having symptoms of Celiac when I was a freshman in college. Doctors were clueless and no help at all. After months of not knowing what was wrong with me, I followed an elimination diet and found out that I couldn't tolerate wheat. Later after cutting the wheat out, I still got sick. I read about Celiac disease and gluten. I cut out all products that could possibly have gluten and felt BETTER! I've been gluten free since--although there are times when it's possible to slip up unknowingly (or even knowingly...horrible) Anyway, just wanted to say hi! steadiedwaters
