    Live Love Laugh! I love helping people and helping them feel more accepted. I don't like how some people get treated badly just because they are different. Everyone is special and unique and the world would change without them!

  1. Any Celiac Teens Out There?

    Hey,I'm Kasey 17 yrs old. diagnosed for a year. I promise it gets better!!
  2. Someone To Talk To

    Hey I am 16, diagnosed Celiac May 26, 2009 It can be hard sometimes trusting others to cook for you. Most of the time you only trust yourself to make food that won't hurt you. I have been glutened by people that only had the best of intentions. The only way to really avoid this is to bring food when you go anyplace that isn't home to eat. At first it may offend people but if you explain they will agree that your health comes first.
  3. From what I've heard many people gain weight before they start losing it. I think it is all part of the healing process. I've been gluten-free for two months and have finally started walking and jogging but it is still really easy to over-do it and have to recuperate for a couple of days.
  4. Skin Rash

    I am very pale and I have tan/brown rashes from the top of my arm to halfway to my elbow. They are round/oval raised patches. They don't itch. My doctor suggested that they may be a type of celiac rash.
  5. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Sublingual B Total gluten-free also?
  6. Thanks! I hadn't even thought about the flour in the air! I think I'll just switch classes to avoid the chance of a reaction.
  7. It's sadder when you think you can trust them! I got accidently glutened by my brother!
  8. Another issue with the fad diet is that people might stop taking celiac disease seriously. They might go on the diet then go off of it a week later and say that it isn't that hard because they weren't really cutting out all the gluten.
  9. Terrifying Dreams And Gluten

    I had nightmares too, I just didn't know it was because of the gluten. Most of the time it just made me tired but sometimes I had nightmares. Thanks for making me feel more sane
  10. I realize that you are supposed to make a lot of gluten based foods...will it be okay as long as I don't eat it? or should I get out of the class?
  11. Lazy

    I can relate to the brain fog! One time it got so bad that I had to have someone repeat a question 4 times before I could finally answer it! Then I forgot all about it two seconds later
  12. Complete Personality Change.

    Becci, I understand that completely! One day I got glutened very badly from spices containing maltodextrin. (of course I didn't know that at the time) And the next day I couldn't even get out of bed and was yelling at everyone who came in to check on me. (not me at all!!) Now that I have been gluten-free for 2 months I am feeling so much better and like me again!
  13. Some products that say they are made on equipment that also processes wheat also have notices on them that say they are routinely tested to ensure gluten-free status. I don't know how reliable that is though.
  14. Just Diagnosed

    I'm Italian too and you can still have your pasta! They make gluten-free macaroni, spaghetti, and even lasagna noodles. You can find them at health food stores or whole foods stores.
  15. Just Not Sleepy/tired!

    I used to be like that too. I've been on the gluten-free diet, B-12, and folic acid for over 2 months now and I don't even notice when it's eleven or twelve at night! I've actually had people tell me to go to bed because it was late and I didn't believe them
