  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Northern Colorado, Front Range

    Hi there! I am on the Northern Colorado Celiac Support group board. We get together every other month and I also coordinate Celiac Dining Out. Send me a PM for more info!! Heather
  3. I love Vodka and crabnerry! Here are the brands i use. 2 imported Vodkas-Luksosowa and Monopolowa are scrumptious and a lot less expensive than Chopin. There is a Korean Vodka called Green Soju that is made from sweet potatoes. Smirnoff is made from corn. Ironically, most domestic top shelf Vodkas are not gluten free. They just cost more. Cheers! Heather

    I forgot to ask about the seperate bowl thing. Thanks for reminding me about that. I really REALLY want my brains back. I was such a mess last night that I actually almost started crying while I was making dinner. I feel SO tired, and My brain is just not working.
  5. Feel Half-dead

    I did not eat at a chain restaurant. I had the same thing i always get. She did serve it with an unopened package of crackers, even though I requested no what-bread-roll-of-any-kind. I don't really think that had any effect, but maybe they spilled a bag of flour into it or something.
  6. So Here I Am......

    Run away, screaming. I don't think there is any way you can be careful enough to work in a place that produces floury baked not-so-goodness. You may never know that you are having exposure until too much damage is done to your body. IF you wore a mask, gloves (hazmat suit) you might be able to sneak by with minimal exposure, but why would you put yourself at risk? It is like taking a hazardous job without the hazard pay. Can you do something else, like accounting or something until you can find a less dangerous job? I get the heebie jeebies just walking by the bakery counter at t he grocery store!
  7. Feel Half-dead

    So I hardly ever go out to eat, but I went to lunch last Friday at a local place where I know I can eat this one kind of soup and a salad. Ever since Friday afternoon, I feel like a zombie. I have gone through periods of crying, feeling angry for nothing, being short-tempered, and I am SO. Damn. Tired. I would just curl up here under my desk for the rest of the afternoon if I thought it would do any good. I also have no appetite whatsoever. So is this being glutened or not? I have been dealing with this for 5 years as a well-controlled diagnosed celiac, but for some reason, I still have this question when I feel like this. Am I just PMS-ing? Am I getting a cold? I feel sore all over and I have no energy in my body from my hips to my neck. I know this sounds bizarre, but a little help would be appreciated. How do I get over this if it IS glutenation? Please, send me the antidote! I am a complete space case. Heather Baby 2001 Celiac 2002 Cholycystectomy 2004 Baby 2006 Spasm of Sphincter of Oddi 2007
  8. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease 5 years ago and have been strictly gluten-free ever since. About 3 years ago, I started having terrible pain in my right side and under my right shoulder. I have been seearching for answers to this question for quite some time now. i had my gall bladder out in 2004-no stones, but it was "sluggish" and afterward they told me there were fatty adhesions. The right sided back pain and pain under my rib cage never completely went away. After I had my baby (and my gastro DESERTED ME WHILE I WAS PREGNANT!!! SAYING NO YOU COULDN"T POSSIBLY HAVE ANYTHING WRONG WITH YOU EXCEPT MAYBE A LITTLE INDIGESTION!!!) I finally had the whole workup and they found nothing but fluctuating liver enzymes. So I saw a specialist in Denver who diagnosed me with Type III (or possibly Type II) Spasm of the Sphincter of Oddi. I had asked my gastro about this almost a whole year prior to this, but me said no, it's too rare. Right. There is no really good treatment for this. Most pain meds increase the spasming. ERCP is not really a good solution with the type I have. So I finally begged to be sent to a pain management doctor. he prescribed Fentanyl in an absorbable tablet (in case I am vomiting), and medical marijuana. I also see an accupuncturist. She is very iinterested in the connection between this and Celiac. I never thought they could be connected, but now I wonder. Anyway, i am finally at a point now where I do not wish to die, which is a good thing for my two little girls. I would really welcome anyone's thoughts regarding this or their own experiences. it is a very horrible and frustrating problem!
