First, good regimen
Second, how many people do you know personally that have gluten sensitivity, intolerance or celiac disease? I'm just curious, because I'm almost half Serbian, and I'm always curious of ways to prove that heritage has something to do with celiac disease and similar disorders.
I've be very strictly gluten free and dairy free since I was diagnosed with celiac at age 14, but I was mostly wheat free since I was 8. And I'm 19 now and from the US
I'm 19 and I live in the Seattle, WA area.. I've been very strict on my gluten free and dairy free diet since I was 14 when I was diagnosed celiac, but I was diagnosed with a wheat allergy when I was 8... I always want to go to the Seattle Meet up for celiacs but I'm kinda afraid it's gonna be all "adults" lol
anybody have problems with boyfriends/girlfriends that don't understand, or think celiac is funny..?
I know what you mean... I practically hold my breath when I'm in the same car with someone eating like a burger.. and that may be kinda silly... but then if someone is baking, there could be flour in the air, so I try to be really careful. You have to really get the point across about how serious celiac is... most people will really try to help you. But I seriously get disgusted watching people eat gluteny things... I'm 19, and I've been mostly wheat free since I was 8... but I would go to friends houses and "cheat" on my diet.. but I've been totally gluten free and dairy free since I was 14.. so I know how it goes.. at school lunches when everyone has it easy buying lunch.. I mean we know our food is healthier but still.. lol. I like your word glutened, I haven't noticed that before haha
hey, i'm emma, this is my first post, WOOT! lol. i'm 18 (just now, it's a little past midnight, august 14th and it's my b-day!) so woot woot! haha, i was looking for a good, new chocolate cake.... and then i started reading the teen posts lol so hi! i have been mostly wheat free since i was 8, of course i didnt really understand that when i ate stuff like mac and cheese at my friends houses that it hurt me lol not my mom since i broke the rules lol. but i have been gluten free and dairy free for almost five years now.. and i feel so much better
when i first stopped eating wheat, i had been really sick.. like missing an average of 75 days a year out of 180 at school.... the school threatened to hold me back! luckily i was a good little student (when i was there) and my mom was not about to be pushed around lol. but after we went to go see dr. lamson at a clinic that dr. jonathon wright made (he's a pretty major naturopath). i was taken off wheat, then about 3 months later, i slept for almost a month straight.. i mean i got up and went to the bathroom, i would eat (i actually had an appetite! yay! which i didnt before), then go back to bed.... after that month i felt soooo much better.. it was crazy.
before being gluten-free i had emotions like the craziest rollercoaster thinkable, i'm still really emotional but i can handle it better now.. sorta.. haha. all of my friends and family know that i am really sensitive and i cry easily and simple things can just put me in a terrible mood.
i was reading some posts and saw a few comments about being overly emotional... so i just kinda want to talk to some people that are like me because most people i know just don't get how i feel.... maybe its a celiac thing?? lol
but if you aren't emotional i'd still like to talk to you!
