Hi Bella,

The new board switched over at the end of December. It takes a bit of getting used to, but the new features are good. I think the best feature for me is being able to send e-mails or personal messages directly to other people on the board. It is certainly a lot easier than it used to be. If you have any specific questions and need help, please post them and we will try to help you out. Welcome back! :)

God bless,

Mariann

I still cannot get all of the messages, I only see about 2/3rds of each message and

cannot see the introductory message of the topics. I am so sad because I loved this

board and wth wonderful people on it. I will keep trying. hadafish, formerly known

Jan,

Don't feel bad I had a lot of problems at first. When you said you could only see

2/3 of the message, you probably need to center it by pushing the right arrow

at the bottom of the window, that's what I have to do. Hope this helps!

I think you will like it when you get used to it...

Hi Judy, thank you. I do push that button all the way over and still I only see only

one third of the original message and two thirds of the replies. I don't have this

problem on any other site. I am on an Imac. My husband says I have to get a PC

for it to work and true enough if I use his computer it is fine. His is for

business and I rarely get to be on. However, I am pleased that I can post and

that you can see my reply. Thanks again. This is better than not being here at all! I

love the site. Jan, Caifornia.

I've never been on a message board at all and am writing this to be sure this is how you post something.

Warpspeed, welcome to the site! It worked fine. Now you can look around and post any questions, answers or topics. It helps to look around first and see if there is already a topic you are interested in, and add to that. Again, welcome.

See you around the site!

God bless,

Mariann :)

How do you post events to the calendar??? Every time I try to "Add and Event", I get the message "This menu is disabled" - there must be a way because I see that other people have posted events, such as Celiac Walks and Support Group Meetings. Please help.

Hi Paula,

I have never tried to add an event to the calendar, but it seems to me that it would have to be cleared with the sites administrator before being added. I would suggest when you get to the disables menu page that says you don't have access to that feature, then click on the "contact site administrator" link and ask what you need to do to add an event.

Good luck,

Mariann

Why are some (most) postings signified as "Pinned"? I have been a member for a year or so, although I have written just a few messages. Some of the messages I did send I never saw posted. Thanks.

Flo,

When you post a new topic on the board, it goes to one of the last few pages, which may be why you don't see it. When a moderator sees it they have a decision to move it to another section of the board (for example, if you posted a recipe under the Coping section) or they can "pin" it. If a moderator pins something, it shows that they've read it and it's important and good to read. Pinning a topic also makes it so it cannot be moved. All unpinned topics stay on the last pages of the forum along with any "moved" topics....pinned topics are towards the front in order of date. Hope this helps.... :)

    • Is your concern the social aspects of eating on the job, or not always feeling well enough to get out the door? I'm in health care, and just happened to be in home care when I was diagnosed.  It actually works well, as I make my own hours, and can reschedule visits as need be. I would think you could complete your MBA easily, maybe part time if necessary.  It's not clear what your career path might be ....counseling?   Industrial psych? Research? Once you are established (and you can do that part time if need be, to start), you will have more options for flexed or reduced hours.  If the social aspects of eating are an issue, you can always excuse yourself at meals, drive to a pleasant location, and eat in your car. Or go for a walk and find a place to eat. For work luncheons,  I just have a beverage or pick up a piece of fruit, so I give the appearance of participating. 
    • Can you tolerate nut milks? I find macadamia milk the gentlest on my stomach. The only brand I've seen here in the US is Milkadamia, and it comes sweetened or not, and fortified with some vitamins. I think this brand is from Australia. Or you could make your own. As for time, it can take awhile, and that seems to be more the norm. A recent new dairy intolerance that peaked May 3 has made me sicker than celiac ever did. Almost 3 months later and I am just starting to get better and my fatigue is improving. I had the usual ups and downs, inadvertent exposures, and trial and error.  I had only mild symptoms (comparitively speaking) at my celiac diagnosis 4 years ago, yet it took 6 months to a year for them to fully resolve after going gluten-free. It's hard to be patient when your GI tract is off, as it makes you feel ill all over.  Just keep doing the right things, introduce new foods one at a time. I would also suggest more protein for weight issues ... can you tolerate tuna? Tuna and some version of mayo? Salmon, vitamin D supplements, and bone broth seemed to have helped me recently with gut healing. Wishing you well...  
    • Thank you for your response! Again I am pretty sure my doctor did all these checks however I will definitely check to make sure and take the necessary actions if not. It just feels like a never ending run of doctor appointments and blood tests at the moment and the whole thing really did come as a surprise to me. I think I have really tried to eat healthy as I believe its so important especially being diagnosed with this disease. I feel as though its not just about eliminating gluten but also having a really healthy and balanced lifestyle. Also, I find that at the moment it is not just gluten that upsets my stomach, fruit for some reason also does. Unfortunately, people do not realize this and dismiss it which can also be annoying on top of the diagnosis. I will definitely be avoiding processed foods and have been for the last few months. Thank you for your response and I will listen to my body as you have said, it is without doubt very important.
    • Is aroy d milk gluten free?I couldnt find an information on its package,it says it doesn't have any additives.It's full fat and sold in a bpa free carton box.Anyone tried it?
    • Thank you so much for your reply, it has really helped! Your feedback on the grieving side has really comforted me to know I am not the only one and that it will get better. I am not always upset and sometimes I feel optimistic but occasionally it really just does get overwhelming especially at the moment if I am eating in a restaurant for the first few times or out with friends and have to be concerned with what I can eat and not just concerned with having fun.  In relation to my diet I have seen a dietitian and got very positive feedback. I love cooking so this has been helpful with changing diet. But, I just find that I run out of recipes and am sometimes eating the same thing on repeat which is agitating. Unfortunately, I currently cannot eat lots of fruit as my stomach responds poorly to it so my dietitian has said to eat only one or two servings a day and build up. I definitely am going to research more recipes and snacks over the next month and really try to get my diet sorted so I can feel more relaxed and better. Thank you again your response it has helped massively just to know there are people out there who understand! Thank you.
