    I don’t always know if I am helping, but I put my two cents in because no one should suffer alone. Even though Celiac disease is “small potatoes”, it affects our ability to “break bread” with our family and friends. We are no longer just people. We are different and when you are different people look at us with a variety of different issues. We are not part of the status quo. I am glad I found this site. It helps. Thank you Gluten Dude.

    Good luck with college, Allie! Most college campuses are definitely willing to work with people with allergies/celiac. Make sure your residence hall and dining staff understand your celiac diagnosis. Also, don’t be afraid to meet with Counseling Services – they can help you talk through any anxieties you might have transitioning to a new environment (they’re great people AND its a free service to students!) Most importantly, get involved with a student organization (and I will bet there’s a student org devoted to health/wellness issues). If you need any help, let me know. My life’s work is to help new college students be successful in college.

    Allie-as another “Allie” who is gluten intolerant, I am glad to know that you are doing better on the gluten free diet and are staying strong and not letting it control your life negatively! Way to go girl! I am currently a freshman in college and went gfree right before I left for college, which was a hard transition. It has been a whirlwind of a year learning the rules of the gfree diet and trying to not get glutened by cafeteria food, but you can do it!!! I would recommend talking to the nutritionist/dietician at your school and making sure you have enough gfree options! Let me know if you have any questions about being gfree in college! I just started a blog about my own gfree college experiences- gfreebennie.blogspot.com. Good luck with everything! :)
