  1. I Might Have Dh?

    I have seen some of the photos, and it looks to be close to the same thing. Mine really varies between a rash and just one or two sores. I'll have to look into the low Iodine diet. Thanks for the link! I haven't ever put anything on it because I didn't know exactly what it was, but you certainly have given me options to try. Hopefully I'll find one that works for me. Thank you so much for your help.
  2. I Might Have Dh?

    Ive been Gluten Free for 2-3 year and have noticed that any time I get Glutened I end up with little bumps that itch and then they turn into painful sores. Sometimes they come in a rash and other times there is only one. I get them on my belly button and legs, could this be DH? I usually get then within 2-3 days after getting Glutened. If this is DH does anyone have any suggestions on how to care for it or what to do about it?
  3. Anyone From Oklahoma?

    I don't live too far from Tulsa, thank you for the links. Okc is quite a ways away though.
  4. I was just curious to see if there was any other young celiacs in Oklahoma.
  5. Hello Fellow Celiacs

    Yeah, it sucks knowing that someone could do such a thing. Just gotta stay positive and eventually there will be someone who understands and someone who doesnt run. I've pretty much forgiven the guy, it doesnt pay to hold a grudge.
  6. Hello Fellow Celiacs

    Thanks for the welcome No reason to be sad about it, I'm ten billion times healthier.
  7. Hello Fellow Celiacs

    I actually just moved back to Oklahoma like 2 weeks ago....sadly. I really don't like to socialize because it's so hard, but if I do I usually eat before attending. Usually before dating someone I tell them flat out and upfront about it, and if they even flinch I wont even consider dating them. When I first found out that I had it I was engaged, and once he found out he decided it "was too much trouble and not worth his time". Where I live there are absolutely no restaurants that are gluten free, not many stores carry the foods here, and theres no vegetarian places around here. I don't even think I've ever met a vegan in my entire life. I would say that absolutely no one understands and everytime I go to a social event I feel completely out of place. I don't ever really enjoy myself. The nicest thing someone has done for me was at a birthday party, they knew I couldn't eat the cake so they bought me a bowl of fruit to eat instead. I usually eat before I leave the house to ensure I dont get cross contaminated or worse. Lol maybe the novel will hit the bestsellers list and make millions. Then I would buy my own gluten free company and there would never be any problems again.
  8. hey,if you don't mind let me know if you find anything on croissants... they were my favorite thing to eat too!

  9. Hello Fellow Celiacs

    Thank you so much for sharing. I like to hear how other people have diagnosed and how they are dealing with it afterwards. I am glad you found out though.
  10. Hello Fellow Celiacs

    Thank you so much for your story. I am so glad that you shared. When I found out that I might have Celiac I too went through a state of depression. It's shameful to say this, but I felt like a prisoner in my own body. Once I figured out how to eat and got a doctor that cared I started getting better. It was really hard having to explain things to people so I stopped seeing friends, dating, and going out. It's really hard being Celiac...no one knows what it is, no one understands it, and people think you're weird or contagious. After I realized I was missing out on my life I slowly began to start going out again. It's been 2-3 years since then and now I realize that it was worth missing out on life. I now tell everyone I know about Celiac and try to raise awareness. I've lived in Oklahoma my entire life and moved away for the first time in my life (to Illinois); I was stunned to find so many gluten free options. Where I live in Oklahoma theres scarcely any gluten free food. I just moved back to Oklahoma and now they are starting to carry more Gluten free foods. Awareness is being raised and that just makes it so much easier on new celiacs. I am glad to hear that you are getting better and that you are able to openly tell the story. That's only the first step, it'll keep getting so much easier with time. Sorry for the book I wrote lol
  11. Croissant Recipe?

    Do they have a website?
  12. Croissant Recipe?

    Thank you so much, they look really good. I'm going to try these and see how they turn out. Hopefully at least one of these recipes will work....3 years is a long time without croissants.
  13. Croissant Recipe?

    Thank you so much, I'm going to try this recipe. I haven't heard of Jules flour mix yet, I'm just now getting into baking.
  14. Before I found out I had celiac disease I was a huge bread products fan. My favorite thing to eat was croissants. Since going gluten-free I haven't found any recipes for gluten-free croissants, does anyone have a yummy recipe? Please HELP!!!!
  15. Hello Fellow Celiacs

    I know what you mean, I had the endoscopy done and I cant say I enjoyed it either. It's good you are getting better though.
