RashyA added a topic in Dermatitis HerpetiformisDoes Your Dh Do This?Okay so my dh is really bad on my chest. Finally my face and elbow have cleared up
But I was wondering if this is normal. When my dh flares up they get white pus and clear fluid. When they dry which takes forever btw! They leave a really dark circle but Incan squeeze them and it's almost like a clear blackhead comes out? I know this is disgusting but I just gotta know

RashyA added a topic in Gluten-Free Ingredients & Food Labeling IssuesSmart Balance?So today all I had to eat was a yogurt, some glutennfree chips, and two pieces of asparagus. My work uses smart balance on their veggies and I had two asparagus. I always eat the yogurt and chips without a problem. Half an hour after eating the veggies I broke out in a rash on my arm and got a severe stomach ache. Could it be the butter?

1. My family is a mix of me, my son, my boyfriend, his daughter, Jared the cat, and really happy fish the fish.....names kids come up for animals All gluten eaters thus far.
2. I work 40 hrs a week as a cook at the hospital
3. It's 3 o clock in the morning
4. I got glutened yesterday from a dang Reese's!
So I work a lot at very strenuous job and get to watch people eating all kinds of food I can't eat everyday. I'm over that pretty much. After having a very stressful week with the kids yesterday was my day off and I only had one kid with me so I thought hey I'll have a Reese's and relax today. Heck no! Got glutened and was sick all day! Now I'm up at three o clock in the morning with my dh itching like crazy and can't sleep!!! Outside smoking a cigarette as I write this and thinking about my mom always telling me how bad they are for me.....I know they're bad the whole world knows they're bad! But right now I feel like I can't quit cause I've given up everything for my children and now delicious foods! Sometimes I feel like I want to throw y body I the trash! This disease is so dang hard sometimes!!!!
As I'm reading this I feel sort of ashamed..
Don't get me wrong I LOVE LOVE being a mom and love my family very much just need to get it out to people who understand so well
Hopefully u don't all think I'm a terrible person

I was wondering if anyone drinks kombucha for the probiotics?
I know for many it is an acquired taste but I really enjoy it. Could it help my stomach to heal? Just curious thanks

RashyA added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithThank You !I just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your posts and advice
This site is such a blessing and I think I would be constantly glutened and lost without it!
You are all so knowledgeable about our disease and it really helps out a lot!
There are days where I just have to lay on the floor in self pity and my boyfriend although supportive just has to laugh. Thank you for all of your support!!!
