Looking For Kindergarten Friend

Okay, this is a very long shot but:

When I was in kindergarten (or was it first grade?), I played with a little girl down the street whose mother (who was also the Brownie Scouts Troup Leader) died of stomach cancer that same year. I remember my mother telling me that the little girl's mother had had stomach problems for ages, but wasn't the complaining type, and it had turned out to be stomach cancer. They moved away very soon after she died.

With what I've learned (mostly from this board!), I'm convinced that she must have had celiac disease.

So I'm assuming that the little girl (all grown up now!) might have developed celiac disease--and might be reading this?

Tracy Stewart, are you out there?

try people finders.com

I did it for you and tried to post a link to the 77 tracy stewarts that came up... but the link was empty when I checked it. I didn't put in a state. I just did the name, and it worked.

Where and when did you grow up? I have a knack for searches and maybe I can find something...? You can PM me if you'd rather not announce that info.

since when majority of women marry they take man's last name, does people search use old name or new name or both for the search?

Also, going off topic a little, in the Obituaries I'd like to see the woman's maiden name just in case I can't tell if it's someone I used to know. Why do most Obits ignore that detail? It's almost as if her life before marriage didn't exist.

As far as I can tell, just the old name. I tried my maiden name, and couldn't find anything newer than my high school address!!! (And I didn't get married til years later!)

Thanks, hadn't heard of that one. Unfortunately, she moved away after kindergarten.

    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
    • Amazing!  You should feel very optimistic!  It sounds like you are doing everything right...great job!!😊😊😊😊
    • Yes, I would ask for the rest of the celiac panel (including the IgA deficiency test).  Discuss this with your child's GI.  He/She may be able to order for you.  Share the CBC results too with him/her.  I would want to know for sure before giving up gluten to support my child, but you need to determine what is best for you!
