  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Where would I find this information so I can pass it around to my friends and loved ones? J
  3. Well, I'm mostly Irish/Norwegian, with a few others sprinkled in there for good measure... I will ask my doctor about the tests and see what we can do to start, 'cause it can't hurt. I've seen too many people suffer due to ignorance, so I do try to learn what I can, even if it's bad news. Thank you all for your words of encouragement. The cookies came out great, and I tried one that broke... and it wasn't half bad! Our meeting today was disrupted because she got sick, and she thinks it's due to a potential gluten contamination thing from her evening.... but I'm meeting her at a "safe" restaurant tomorrow, cookies in hand ;-) And yes, I'm being the friend that she needs. She's got the impression of my feelings, but I'm trying to keep them in check, since that's not going to help matters in the short term. Again, thank you all, it's been most encouraging. J
  4. Do you think insurance would cover such tests? I wonder. It seems like they should, it'd save them a lot of money in the long run. J
  5. Wow. Is it something you can just ask for? Is it something you "have" from birth or can it develop? It seems so mysterious, I wonder if I have it?? Thank you Jason
  6. Since you're so helpful, I'll ask you the next big question... Before you were diagnosed, what were the signs? Are there any "typical" signs that precede being diagnosed? Jason (and thank you.... I baked the cookies and I've been told it's her favorite mix *cheer!*)
  7. I couldn't help noticing, many of the members on this board seem to suffer from more than just Celiac... is it common for other ailments and disorders to join with Celiac, or is it more that Celiac was simply discovered as a result of the increased attention due to the other disease(s)? Sorry, that was rather long-winded... did it make sense? J
  8. Appreciated! It's made me look at my own dietary intake as well, so it's really been beneficial. J
  9. Thank you so much for your responses. They have been VERY helpful! As luck would have it, she may be going back to an ex. *pout* but I'll still learn all I can to be her friend at least. I just never knew this existed! J
  10. I never knew about this disease, and I want to learn as much as I can. I just met a girl with Celiac, and I want to do whatever I can to make her happy. Ultimately, I'd like to date her, but one thing at a time I got some gluten-free cookie mix, and I am going to make her up a batch of the cookies (carefully!) I guess what I'd like to know is where I should start, as far as resources and information on what foods are safe and what foods aren't, and how we can move forward without any major foul-ups. Who knows, I'd even consider going gluten-free (and anyone who knows me knows that'd be a big step!) because I think she's worth it. Thanks in advance! J
