StephieRN added a topic in Gluten-Free RestaurantsJimmy's Egg- Unofficially Glutenfree FriendlyThe one in Lawton OK,I love them now!
The manager was AWESOME, he actually is the one that took my phone order- had no problem helping me decide what was gluten-free. The eggs have no additives- just plain eggs with whatever you order in them.
When I got there to pick it up, I noticed they had several separate grills- one doing eggs, one hash browns, one pancakes, etc. this may be because they were busy- I have no idea if they always do this and I am making no promises on behalf of Jimmy's Eggs, of course always check yourself.
I had the vegetable omelet with cheese, and a fruit cup for the side. It was DELICIOUS!!! This is 3 hours later and I feel great too, not one peep from my tummy
Just FYI to anyone that lives around a JE

StephieRN added a blog entry in StephieRN's BlogOh My Life :). It Is What It IsThis is my first blog entry so I'm gonna keep it light. Plus I'm typing from my phone so that makes it tough to write a quality blog :)
From my phone because walking to work! Hey celiac bloggers, I'm Stephanie, 36, an RN, and I walk 1.8 miles to work every morning so my teenager can keep the car. Lol people never understand that, and I don't understand how any MOM doesn't get that. We do what we have to do for oir kids. Plus, my jiggly a$s could use the exercise that's for sure.
So anyhooooo.... The weather is beautiful.
Today is day 3 gluten free. I have DH that's about 13 days old now, it's nearing the end hopefully. The last few outbreaks I had lingered on for awhile, the itch went away but the remnants/fine bumps stayed for a few months. Not bothersome just ugly. This entire summer I didn't wear a tank top one time because of the scars :(
So far so good on the gluten-free! The only thing in my kitchen glutenous is a half loaf of bread, due to my daughter, which I will discuss more in detail later :)
Thankful I have something so manageable. I'm thankful I found this website full of info and support. I'm thankful I found out now and not 15 years ago when the dx could have been super depressing. I'm thankful for a lot more than that this morning. <3 peace out

StephieRN added a topic in Dermatitis HerpetiformisAaaaannnnnd Another "rash Pics"Good morning all!
I finally figured out how to get pics here from my phone. Soooo here are my pics if anyone would like to share an opinion.
Ok a little FYI info...
1. Rash didn't start until about 5 years ago, and this is about the 10th time I've had it.
2. These pics are 10 days into the rash, so I know they look very mild but I forgot to take pics at the beginning
3. This particular episode was set off by Ramen noodles, AKA the devils dinner
4. I was hesitant to share the one of my chest- this isn't how they really look- before the picture I was showing my daughter how the little blisters are fluid filled, so popping them- turning them into this blotchy mess for the camera.
5. My head and ears and butt itch the most, yet no rash. Weird.
I hope those links work! I have no idea what I'm doing LOL

StephieRN added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsMy View On Diagnosis, My Personal SituationI personally do not plan on receiving a formal physician's diagnosis for celiac disease.
I am 10000000% I have celiac disease, as well as my daughter. We also do not have insurance. When she goes to college in 18 months, we will both have insurance, but we will be healed enough by then that surely any tests will be negative, and I'm not going to live in misery again for however long just to produce a positive test result! For me, the diagnosis is just not important. Treatment is our lifestyle change at home, not really affected by a Dr agreeing.
Anyone else in this situation or feel the same?

StephieRN added a topic in Dermatitis HerpetiformisRash Relief Help?Hi all. First I'd like to say I am new to celiac and tomorrow is my first day gluten free.
Can someone help me with tips/pointers on itching relief until the rash subsides? This is the worst I've ever had it, it's on my trunk and butt and arms/neck. It's not as awful as some pics I've seen but the little microblisters are there, and I'm itching EVERYWHERE not just where I have rash. The most annoying itch is my ears, outer part, and scalp. Sometimes wrists/hands. I feel a general "tickle" all day and it's driving me NUTS.
Sooooo.... Yes I've tried Benadryl (can only take it at night because I'm a healthcare provider during the day). Calamine didn't help much either I tried it last night. Anything y'all DH veterans can recommend?
Also.... How long after refraining from gluten does the rash usually get better? I'm miserable
