  1. I am feeling so overwhelmed that I haven't started my gluten-free diet yet and I am still sick as can be. I need tips and things i should do broken down into steps to get started. Are there special containers, strainers or things like that, that maybe I should buy? Also I have the iphone and I downloaded the "Is that Gluten Free" app and the "Scanavert" app. Sometimes they work but finding stores that have gluten-free food is the most difficult thing because I live in Vegas. I guess just an helpfull advice or tips to get me started and less stressed and overwhelmed would be amazing. Thank you so much for your time in advance!!! ~Celia Hilts
  2. I am trying to get a folder on my computer filled with gluten-free recipes. Thats a good start right? :-/

  3. If you need any help, please just ask! We're here for you! P.S.The last trip I took before getting so sick was to Las Vegas in 2006! We had a blast!!!

  4. I'd rather not eat then be in pain from eating.. I know thats bad but I dont want to die so I have to figure something out!!

  5. I comppletely understand... I have been ruled out as the outkast and biggest complainer in the family and I always feel like they don't want me around bc of my special food needs. My so called "best friends" ditched me to live there own lives and not care once to check on me. It makes me feel like I am not good enough and they make me believe I am just a hypochondriac but i know the pains and feelings I am going through. People are just ignorant anf writing them off is the best thing to do bc what is more important is YOUR HEALTH!! ~Celia

    That is too bad for your sister bc most illneses can be taken care of by diet and it could NEVER hurt to try something new. If you find some neat easy to prepare meals would you mind emailing me the recipe?? Iam going to start my own gluten-free cookbook
  8. This is more difficult than I ever thought... I don't even know where to start!

  9. Hi there! I just saw that you're from Las Vegas? Hello from the other coast! :) I'm actually planning a trip there for the fall. It'll be my first time there, so I'm very excited. I've heard that there are a lot of great gluten free restaurants there, too, especially on the strip.

    Anyway, just stopped by to say hi. Hope you're having a good time checki...

    That is an awesome idea!! I will get to cleaning and re-organizing the kitchen and start there. I never thought about the food touching others and contaminating it with gluten. I never even thought about the beauty products either! I have alot to learn haha! You have been most helpful most appreciated!!

    Thank you so much that is so very true... being diagnosed early is a blessing in disguise. None of the Dr.s I have been to said I have celiac or and intolerance they said I am "sensitive" well it didn't helo when they took my gallbladder out in 2006. I think I am going to live a gluten-free life and not worry about what the docs say and just do what I feel makes me feel better! I appreciate your reply!
  13. Thank you Fire Fairy :) looking forward to this new healthy way of life!

    To Eat Or Not To Eat..

    Hello everyone.... I'm 23 and just recently realized I am allergic to gluten. Better late than never I guess but I have had to take ao many different medications and vitamins all for reasons caused by gluten as all of you have experienced I'm sure. The pain, nausea and fatigue alone are going to kill me. My Dr.s are confused so I decided to take matters into my own hands. This is the only thing that makes sense. All of the symptoms I HAVE and all of the other things like fertility and migraines I HAVE problems with too. This has to work life can't be like this it should be enjoyable and I am going to enjoy it once I get this gluten out of my system! Any help or tips would be amazing for a newbie like me! Thank you look forward to talking to most on the forums!
