  1. You guys rock! Thanks for the info. Maybe that's why more people aren't coming in here and mentioning the online project they're working on is that it is strictly against board rules...? Can you not even say the name if you are working on it...? hrrmmmm.... I also just came across another crazy one... I don't know if its still active but this Chiropractor seems to be selling a program where you eliminate all grains as a Gluten Free Healing thing. It seems pretty bogus to me but they have over 2000 registered members on the forum and over 40,000 facebook likes. I think its called Gluten Free Society... Anyone know anything about this guy? While we're at it, anyone have a good list of gluten-free magazines and Newsletters? I know about... Gluten Free Living Magazine Journal of Gluten Sensitivity Gluten Free Gigi's Monthly Newsletter What else?
  2. Hey folks: Looking for more gluten-free and celiac disease places to try out around the web. What other gluten-free-related forums or online communities are you a part of? Do you recommend them to a newbie? At all? Why or why not? Some of the communities I've come across: Gluten Free Gigi Gluten Dude Gluten Free Club (Paid Membership) ...but I can't really review any of them because I have barely gotten to know them
  3. Jamie, I'm so glad to hear you're seeing a doctor and doing better from your first post. I really relate to your story and a young man with Celiacs. I just sent you a PM. Maybe we can get in contact.
  4. Katie I'm smiling to myself right now because I TOTALLY relate to what you're saying. It's taken me far too long to deal with my own feelings about myself and celiac disease to get comfortable asking people and telling people what I need. Here's a few quick tips I use: -If you're going over to someones house for a meal, tell them before hand "I just got diagnosed with a thing where I can't eat gluten. Is that gonna be ok? Can I bring something maybe?" --> this avoids embarrassment for everyone and allows you to not feel like a burden. -If its someone I don't know like a waiter or someone I don't think will really understand well (older folks sometimes fall into this category like my friends grandma) I'll usually just say its a "Really Severe Allergy" cause that's something people understand and it avoids people thinking 'this is a crazy health nut that wants me to go out of their way for their whim'. Remember that your eating is not a whim! celiac disease could kill you over time. -Worse comes to worse just try to be as honest as possible. "I'm so sorry I couldn't tell you before. I feel horrible cause you went to all this effort. I've just been diagnosed with Celiacs and I can't eat it. Maybe I can just have some fruit." --> People usually get it. And you probably do feel bad. So just communicating that to them will overcome 99% of any awkwardness. Then adding "I can just have some ______" will allow them to feel like they didn't fail at feeding you. We humans have a very emotional relationship with food. Part of what makes celiac disease so hard to navigate socially. Let's get in touch. I know its crazy to navigate Celiacs and all the information (sometimes conflicting) out there. Maybe I can help. PMing you
  5. I went off my gluten free diet for a month to get an endoscope and I didn't start experiencing symptoms until the last 5 days of that month. I know it would be great to let your daughter eat gluten but I wouldn't take 1 or even a few days as a sign of her not having celiac disease
