  1. Gluten Nightmares- Literally!

    I think I've only had one dream in 10 years about eating gluten (at least, that I can remember) but when I have to handle bread for other people I get a creepy, crawly feeling and have to go wash my hands a couple of times. Freaks me out.
  2. Just Diagnosed

    When I was diagnosed 10 years ago, most doctors had no clue as to what celiac disease was. Fortunately, I had a very tenacious doctor who wouldn't let go until she figured out what the problem was. Dealing with it today has become far easier than it was back in those days, but the diagnosis doesn't appear to be any easier to come by. Right now, you need to focus on getting well and learning what's safe and what's not. Begin by reading every single label and, when in doubt, call on your cell phone from the grocery story or look up the product online. It's incredibly time consuming at first, but it does get better. And many foods are now labeled as gluten free. They'll cost more, but they're safe, and that's what's most important for you now. Best of luck, Terry
  3. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease 10 years ago and have been gluten free ever since. My #1 rule is that if I can't read the label, it doesn't go in my mouth. I've passed up a lot of yummy looking candy over the years because there wasn't a label or I didn't know 100% for sure that it was okay. It just too long to recover from a transgression. Terry
