First from Oregon?

    I have been looking for fellow Celiacs in my area with no luck. And, it appears that there are none at this forum, either. Hmmmm … Hopefully, that will change. I was telling a friend of mine (who lives in Calif) how hard it is to meet new people because of this disease. Everyone wants to “meet for lunch” … or “get some coffee and a snack”. I can’t do that. People don’t “get” that. So … I have no real friends where I have now lived for 5 years :( I hesitate to join anything, because so much of what this society does is based around the sharing of food. People seem to think that I choose to not eat gluten, and so I am causing myself to stand out when from others at activities. I wish. Anyway … just thought I would leave a note here in the hopes that others from my area might drop by.

    I live in Oregon too. I am in the Willamette Valley. Where are you located?

      Hi Lotus … I live in the Southern end, too … near Eugene. New restaurant opening in October. Sundial Cafe, I think the name is. 100% GF. Are you close to Eugene?

    Helllooo Debbee1,
    I stumbled upon your post…and feelings of a mutual understanding came over me! In that moment, I realized what better place to find friends than those who can relate to me. This GF life is a requirement in order to feel better on so many levels. I find myself struggling simply to appease others around me and it’s bullshit. I’m kicking myself for not having tried this approach six years ago. Anyway, I moved to Bend just this past November, a great place but hoping to connect with other celiacs.

    I’m on the Oregon coast in Astoria – not officially diagnosed though. No one knows what the heck is wrong with me, but I know it’s connected with food, just not sure how. 😛 Something is really killing my system, but finding out exactly what has been far more complicated than I would have thought, maybe if my head would be clear for a solid week or two I could figure it all out. But I’m kinda like – leave me alone it’s time for nap #2 today!
