Hi...I can relate to how you are feeling. I was just diagnosed last week. I would almost rather deal with the stomach problems then this. I cry whenever I go into Wegman's. I have not gone out to eat yet as I am afraid to deal with all of the special requests. This is so difficult for me because I love food, dining out, cooking. I am also waiting to find out if I have ankylosing spondylitis. Do you know if anyone has celiac and this other autoimmune disease? If you need to talk please write back...I could use the support too. I don't have any friends with celiac, do you?
