  1. I was diagnosed with celiac disease after I had my second son, back in 2005. Growing up, I ate whatever I wanted without any worries. I am a bread, cake, pastries, etc., loving girl. I was doing really well with the diet for about a year after my diagnoses...but since then I have slipped up quite a bit. As of this date, I have not been gluten free for almost a year now. I have a husband (not that this is his fault), who has never really been supportive of this disease. He grew up in a family that never concerned themselves with doctors, dentists, diseases, etc. So his big concern was all the money I was spending on something he had never heard of and therefore doesn't consider to be that important...again, this isn't his problem. My kids don't have celiac as far as I know, so I'm sort of alone in this situation. I would love to stay gluten free and feel better about myself. I've put on unwanted weight, I tend to get mild arthritis in my joints and hands, along with some ugly migraine headaches. I know being gluten-free helps get over all of this, but being part of a family that doesn't have to be careful, it's become really difficult. Not to mention, I know what I'm missing out on...unlike some who are born with this. How can I find the help and reassurance I need to get healthy and stay true to my diet. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks for your time. Sincerely, Aimee Salazar
