Searching For Fellow Celiac Roommate -- Where To Post?

6 posts in this topic

Is there an appropriate place to post information in a roommate search?  I am a pretty sensitive celiac (react easily/often, with DH...ah, good times), so I cannot live with "normal folks" and it's really hard to conduct a roommate search when "strictly gluten-free" is a requirement!  I have a new house that's been kept gluten-free since I moved in, and there's more space (+2,000sf) than I can use, so I figured I'd see if I could find a celiac roommate.  It'd be great if I could post here somewhere, or if anyone knows of any good place(s) to post.  (Places with high celiac visibility, that is...craigslist etc have been totally nonproductive.)  Thanks!!

Hi Philia,

I have moved your topic to the celiac meeting room section of the forum, where hopefully, your request will get more responses.

Best wishes to you,

IH

Do you have  local Celiac or GIG support group?  Maybe you could look for roommates there?

I understand wanting to keep internet privacy, but if you post what state you live in, maybe folks here who live in that state can send you PM's to find out if you're in their area.

Thanks for moving my topic to an appropriate meeting room, IrishHeart!

 

Do you have  local Celiac or GIG support group?  Maybe you could look for roommates there?

 

I have tried contacting groups that are purported to either have local branches or be in the process of developing local branches, with no success.  I also tried posting in the forums of the most nearby gluten-free meet-up that I could find (not all that close, and its forms seem pretty rarely visited).  I'm still digging, and posting flyers at local cafe, stories specializing in gluten-free foods, etc., but thought I'd check to see if there was anywhere else that could reach fellow celiacs in my area.  Maybe I'm just more sensitive to gluten in the home than others, or maybe others just have had better luck than I in finding roommate(s) willing to keep common areas totally gluten-free, but when I started looking for places to post, I was genuinely surprised that there aren't really any local or national places (that I've found) for celiacs roommate postings!  I'll keep checking for local groups, and I'd really appreciate any other suggestions as well!

 

bartful -- good point.  I was intending my original post to be answered in terms of where I could post, I didn't think of it in terms as a direct advert.  My general location is in Northern California, Bay Area -- Sacramento -- Tahoe.

In the bay area you should be able to find support groups, lots of "health conscious places" to post.  If you live anywhere near a university, maybe you could put something on their internet roommate board.  I have heard Sac has some gluten-free resources.  Tahoe is health conscious, so you might be able to find someone eating gluten-free, Celiac or not.  I think it might be harder in smaller areas like Placerville - but people like to live there and commute into Sac.  At least they did when I lived there.

 

I know someone in the Sac area with Celiac.  If that is where you are looking for a roommate - pm (personal message) me and I'll ask her if they have an active group. 

 

When you are new - pm ability is limited.  You may only be able to pm a moderator.  So if you need a go-between, you can pm me and I can pm the person or if a newbie sees this and wants to contact you, they can contact me......  agh!  you get the idea.

    • I felt great a few weeks after going gluten-free. finally started loosing weight as well. the last few weeks I have not felt good. ok in the morning, then slowly start getting brain fog. shakes. pains. is low blood sugar a side affect of going gluten free????
    •   I had a bone scan it didn't show any fractures, basically I left physical therapy in pain, it then went away. But my knee pain and tingling didn't go away so I tried PT again and I left it pain. Then I realized I had celiac and now all my pain is gone other then the back pain.. I'm basically worried I healed from the celiac and PT caused a whole new problem that never had to happen.
    • I am trying to find out if going gluten-free can cause low blood sugar. I felt so much better when going gluten-free, but now I feel weak, shaky, tired
    • Gaerty,  thank you for sharing this with me! You want to know something crazy? The night before you sent this I was googling "vitamin deficiencies linked to splinter hemorrhages" and an article came up about vitamin C deficiency. I can't remember the last time I took vitamin C or drank orange juice or consumed anything that has vitamin C on a regular basis. It's crazy that you responded to this post when you did. My splinter hemorrhage is razor thin and looks like it could be shrinking but it's hard to tell. Also it's not growing out of the nail bed. It stated more in the middle of my right thumb nail. I don't take a multivitamin mainly because I can't find one that doesn't trigger my anxiety. Trying to find a good one that doesn't have energy boosters in it like green tea and extra B vitamins (all my B vitamin levels are great). I haven't been tested for low C vitamin levels but I might have to now. I was tested for some of the base ones that most celiacs have issues with, folate, magnesium, B's, E's, and a couple others and all of them came back good with the exception of my vitamin D3 which in November 2016 was 16 and we tested it again in February, it moved up to 26. Still low but moving up. My liver numbers in October 2016 were bad but by February 2017 they were perfect. I had skin rashes, most of those have cleared up over the past 5 to 6 months, by about 85%, since I was diagnosed. This splinter hemorrhage came up about 7 to 8 weeks ago. Like I said it appears to be growing out but I'm still going to get it looked at.  Let me know what your doc says about the vitamin C levels. Also what multivitamin do you take?  Ps: I bought some clementines yesterday.  Thanks for responding!  Spencer
