  1. Puppies lick everything. Their fur, toys, furniture, your hands and there is also the accidental lick on the lips when puppy is close and wants to pay respects. My pup usually eats james wellbeloved which is gluten free. She however got ill, and has been prescribed a special type of pet food and a probiotic paste to prevent vomiting.. both contian gluten. I'm in serious distresd as i don't want to live in a house that requires washing my hand after touching... so many things with risk of getting sick if i forget, nor do i wish to spend my days wiping and cleanig to decontaminate. Brushing her teeth after every meal will be too difficult as well since she has to eat a teaspoon of her food every two hours.. that's 7 to 10 times a day. I dont think her tummy can handle the toothpaste .. nor do i have the time either. Please help! Are there any celiacs out there with such issues? How do you manage? My pup is only 9 weeks, very curious and not afraid of introducing her mouth to everything.
  2. Yeah, what is hard for us is people's inability to think before they talk

    Oh congratulations :-) I'm happy to hear that it wasn't as bad as you thought it might have been. I think that you did a good job. You were aware that reading about possible diagnoses online would get you more paranoid than logic dictates, and you stopped yourself. Well done :-)
  4. More About Dreams

    I have nightmares about accidentally eating glutinous things, then freaking out about it. I wake up feeling so relieved that it was just a dream.
  5. Going gluten free might have adjusted your hormone levels. For me, I never got a period naturally until I went gluten-free. My hormones were all over the place and had settled due to the diet. Could be that the change of chemistry in your body + change of prevention meathod had this result on you. 
  6. Probiotics, vitamins, plenty of water, and stick to foods made from scratch which include healthy fats.    Let others know what you're going through to have some support, that always helps. 
  7. Don't take it heart, and think of it as an experience which will only benefit you the future. 
  8. First Post

    Starting a blog on this website seemed like a pretty good idea moments ago, but now that I'm posting my first entry, I'm not really sure what to say :-) An intro perhaps? Hi, I'm Dani. I am an illustrator, and I seem to like the idea of calling myself an artist as well! I am a self diagnosed celiac (or at least I think I am). My general health has improved ever since I started the diet, specifically since my periods (which were absent prior to the diet) are regular now! The hardest part of being celiac is that I have been isolated from others, which has resulted in a boring and lonely lifestyle. I believe, however, that I started caring less about that when I realized I could be happy without being surrounded by people, or at least that's what the theory was. Whether it has been verified is a completely different story. The most important thing to me is not to get sick again and not to jump ship no matter what others think or say. This resulted with having less people who enjoy my company, but I'm not going to let that affect my judgement. I guess that's enough blogging for one day. Dani over.

    Hang in there Nate and don't listen to those internet demons. They just want to make you worry and feel miserable.  Just live normally, and every time you start thinking about this just tell yourself that worrying about it won't make time go faster, and won't help you go through your days until the appointment comes. Let it be business as usual until it's time to deal with this.
  10. I'm not saying that you HAVE to get diagnosed, but that you should think about it and consider it NOW before you go gluten free. Because if you find out later that you should have gotten a diagnosis for any reason, things will be a lot tougher.   It's your life and it's up to you how you live it, and that is the same thing the doctors will tell you as well. They will tell you that it's your decision. I'm just saying that you should do some serious consideration, because going on a gluten free diet and detoxing now, then changing your mind later will be very hard on you. 
  11. I also understood that you were writing them an angry email. I guess you weren't? :-) Thanks for the warning. I've learned from experience to read every last paragraph on the labels from every side of the package. This will come to you in time. Hang in there. 
  12. Why are you mad at them? I love it when companies write the considerate message of processed in a facility that handles wheat.  Taking it out on them even though they were considerate won't make your gluten-symptoms go away.    Double probiotics and lots of water and rest. Get well soon
  13. Scared

    No point in worrying yourself before you actually see the results.  Hopefully it'll be ok :-) Don't worry, try to relax. 
  14. Before jumping to any conclusions and assuming that you might be having any other problems, let me point out that if you indeed have a problem with gluten, then it's not uncommon at all to start feeling poorly after the first week. It's probably just gluten withdrawal. Read this post It's an intro post for celiacs, but the information in it is useful for any person who intends to go on a gluten-free diet.    Since you're not diagnosed, you might want to consider taking the blood test or resuming your normal diet before the withdrawal symptoms develop any further. If the withdrawal period passes and you start feeling better again, it will be a real tough experience if you decide to go to a doctor, because most of the tests they will want to perform won't work if you're already gluten free. It'll all come back negative, so they'll ask you to go back to eating gluten, and you'll go through worse symptoms since you've already cleansed your body, and you'll have to go through withdrawal all over. So decide now if you'll want to be officially diagnosed or not.
  15. Do I Have Celiac?

    It's really up to you to find out the amount of gluten you react to. We can't figure it out for you because we can't feel what you feel after consuming cross-contaminated food. The blood test should help you answer that question.
