Hi! I am and hour and a half north of Pittsburgh, originally from near Monroeville. Do you do any of these events in Pgh. area? I would love to attend but not sure about travelling to Philly. Hope your thyroid issue gets to be better for you! Look forward to chatting with both of you!

Chris

I just sent you a private e-mail.

Yes, there are closer events. The Raisin Rack in Canton isn't that far away. That is where I shop... Sept 8 is when this store has a small sampling day, nothing big but a great store..Then on Sept 9th in Solon, Ohio ( near Cleveland area) there is a event with speakers , vendors/bakers & gluten-free product to purchase....this is my first time at this event as a baker/vendor...

Then in October ther is an event in Cranberry Twp , very close. I will be working that event as well. Oct 27th from 8:30 to well sorry I just forgot!...This is a new one so not all details are worked out yet...Four Points Sheridan.........

This area is not very popular with events....I learned a long time ago that we need to be a road runner to stock up on gluten-free... There are four of us gluten-free & more that needs to be!!!!

I can give you a heads up on everything around here & then other states too....

There's is so much new gluten-free foods these days but still the nasty stuff is still out there too... years ago we had no choices so these days are wonderful for us older celiac faces....

By the way Gaint Eagle is now carrying Goodbye Gluten Bread for $5..49 a loaf, good moist bread that needs no heating!!!!

If you are near the Hermitage area, there is a support group that I belong to. We meet the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 PM. I was diagnosed 3 months ago, and everyone has been fantastic at this group. It's so comforting to talk to someone else who is going through the same issues. We'd love to have you at our meetings.

Can anyone suggest some great Gluten Free restaurants near Jim Thorpe, PA and Bethlehem, PA?

I'll be on tour there mid-October and run into trouble finding gluten-free places on the road sometimes.

Thanks so much,

Jayne

    • Ok so is this really true?!?! Conventional? Remember, the fecal transplant was first described in the 1950s, but took decades to catch on as a conventional treatment for gut disorders, such as c-dif bacteria, partly because it was seen as crude and somehow objectionable. But it proved to work. Really well. So much so that it's now a fairly conventional treatment.
    • You are super sweet. I'm sorry your extended family isn't great about get togethers and cards. My family is the same. Once my parents died I don't have anyone who really cares about me except for my husband and kids. My parents started getting really weird about stuff as they got older, and my sisters are way older than me and we didn't grow up together, so we aren't close at all. In fact one sister hates me. They didn't even come to our parents funerals. Families pretty much suck so you gotta appreciate whatever you can put together for a support system. I come here every day looking for a smile or laugh, an encouraging word, or an opportunity to give advice. You guys are definitely part of my extended family   for what it's worth I would be up for secret santa.
    • Wow everyone my memory lane stuff just keeps popping up on this forum!!!! Thanks for sharing the post op and Audrey the pic. I had what looked like this on my inner left ankle in my late 20's!  It never got diagnosed at the time. I was seeing Dr's at time early pregnancy and then missed miscarriage.  dr's I had at the time I asked didn't know what it was. Period of time I had some of the worst headaches of my life etc. I didn't know if I had been bitten by a spider (brown recluse not in my area though) , the miscarriage, or picked up something from the hospital during my follow up miscarriage stuff-stirrup /ankle. I don't have a pic of it to share. Dr's didn't know, my mom a nurse didn't know , that left my husband who is a bit more holistic based and helped me on healing it  at home. I am really shocked to see see posts and all too often say wow! That's my .... from whatever decade  I'm newly recognized/diagnosed too so this was 15 years ago! wow if any one has any active pg I wish you comfort and swift healing . Been there but didn't have the puzzle piece until you gave it to me now. so many puzzle pieces....finally .....start making an image since I joined this forum.    
    • I can guarantee you that once you get your weight back up to normal, your period will come back.  You sound really malnourished and if your weight gets too low, your periods will stop.  Don't panic.......I was down to about 92-94 pounds at diagnosis so you will be able to heal if you do the diet correctly and don't cheat. Once you start to feel better and your other problems are under control , you will find it easy to stick to the diet. Nothing beats health!  Good luck to you!
    • As the other's have stated, you most certainly can go on to have additional AI diseases whether or not you are Celiac or NCGS.  Many AI diseases can be figured out without mainstream testing, as you know from your severe symptoms of Sjogren's.  I also have Sjogren's and knew that I did without any doubt because of the severity of my symptoms.  I was later tested with a new PCP and yes, they confirmed what I already knew.  Have you had the blood work for Sjogren's?  Not that it matters because you already know. As Sjogren's really has no treatment other than treating the symptoms, having a confirmed diagnosis doesn't always matter.  Just see the doctors you need to see for the specific problems you have stemming from it and that's all you can really do.  So far, it has worked for me.
