  1. Hi there: you're not a wuss. I also stay home more than I'd like when I get glutened. It's a terrible feeling and best to just stay in, lie down, drink water, take digestive aids and ride it out alone. It's miserable and sad and it hurts...
  2. As far as I know, the poster who noted the nuance to ohip coverage is correct. My liver specialist shared the same info with me. I did not pay for my blood panel in ontario.
  3. I have been glutened at tea shops. I think, perhaps, it is due to cross contamination as earl grey is safe. Most of the shops I have been in serve scones and other products and it's pretty easy in a non-dedicated shop to have an issue with...
  4. http://www.thestar.com/living/food/article/943142--gluten-free-beer-a-first-in-ontario Link to an article on gluten free beer being sold in Ontario Canada.
  5. Im sorry you are having a hard time of it. It would be tough at 14 yrs old. That makes you...grade 9? Yes, that's a hard age. When I was 14, I just loved hanging out with friends and I felt free. I wouldnt' have wanted to be tied in to...
  6. I"m sorry for your loss, MamaW. You are right, she is now free of illness, pain and sadness and has moved to a beautiful place of peace and joy. Nevertheless, it is still painful for those of us still here as we miss the physical presence...

    When You Travel

    Hey there: 1) Pre-plan -- I look up a whole foods as I know I can get gluten-free food and snacks. I have vacationed several times and the pre-planning saves me. I travel with a binder with the addresses of the Whole Foods (from state...
  11. Oh thank you so much!!! I just google mapped this and you are right -- it is en-route. I appreciate it. KDawg
  12. Hi All: I'm hoping to get some help from some Miami and/or Islamorada gluten-free residents because I"m heading your way this December. I am a Canadian (from Toronto) and I"m going to the Florida Keys this December for a vacation ...
  13. I agree with all the other posters (above) who have suggested that you bring your own food. I think this is the smartest choice. You could prepare your own turkey (or get some from a gluten free restaurant or caterer) and carve it up to...
