  1. I've been really interested in this as well. I've been writing to congressmen from my home state, Georgia, about cosponsoring a bill concerning Celiac but more needs to be done that everyday people will see. I was watching the movie Sydney White, with Amanda Bynes, the other day and they mentioned having a gluten-free diet, which was pretty cool. I would love to help you get something started. I know there has been a case of Celiac Disease on the TV show House but I think it would be awesome if other shows, like Grey's Anatomy, did something too so that people could learn about these things. Also Elizabeth Hasselbeck from the View has Celiac so maybe if she could help with something on the show.
  2. Does anyone know anything about Hypnotiq?
  3. I was diagnosed when I was three so I've grown up with Celiac but it is definitely still difficult being at college. One thing that was very helpful since I was in dorms and on a meal plan was talking to the head food services person in the cafeterias. Having supportive friends has been one of the most important things that has helped me through. That is what is important to recovering and feeling good about yourself with Celiac. The beer comment always comes up but I've been lucky enough to have friends who will make sure there is rum or vodka for me to drink. It's amazing how many things have gluten in them that people don't realize. I did a speech on Celiac for a class and people really took it seriously instead of making fun of me for it which was great.
  4. I am a Catholic and have received a gluten-free host since I received my the sacrament in 2nd grade. My mother talked to the priest at the church and technically there is nowhere in the Catholic Bible that says the communion host has to be made of a certain grain the only thing it says it that it is unleavened bread. I know this is still a hot topic within the Catholic community but when I do communion I take my own communion in a pyx. The priest blesses the pyx with the rest of the communion and then my mother gives it to me because she is one of the people who gives the bread and wine (I forgot the name). It worked out nicely in my parish but there are still some parishes who are unwilling to do it. Best of luck to you with this! Katie
