Meeting last night wasn't too bad. I love sitting down next to people who have also thrown away their first cup of ice. (I find out PICA might be related to CD (Celiac Disease)--Yay, I'm learning the letters!)
Chewing ice was threatening my relationship anyway and after 25 years, a divorce on the grounds of ice would have just been stupid. I learned a lot and I'll try to get these links, but I'm just learning about blogging as well as CD, so I can see the curve is gonna take a while to straighten.

I really think the only way I can continue maintaining this difficult diet is to have the support of the Tulsa group. There is a great online group, http://www.dcceliacs.org/ that gives tips and answers questions online. It’s mostly about restaurants in DC, but they also answer questions and give great tips for “newbies”.
