    1. Lisa2013 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping With   

      I am completely terrified to eat anywhere but my home which I share with family members that eat gluten. I fear preparing my food and getting cross contamination. I am even paranoid about touching kitchen door knobs and light switches with the chance that my family members previously touched them and I will be touching them prior to preparing my meal.

      Should I be sharing a drying rack? What about a sponge? If they prepare a sandwich with gluten bread and touch my gluten free condiments is this surface now contaminated and will I need to wipe it down every time I use it? Does this go for if I have friends that want to prepare things for me. Will they need to wipe down door handles and the outside of containers to prepare things for me?

      Also with gluten free items, will I need to verify with the manufactures every time I buy a product to verify cross contamination has not taken place within their factory for my gluten free food? this is so much and I cannot help but feel like I'm losing a part of myself. That my life is isolated and everything I do is around preventing cross contamination, I don't care if I never eat bread again. Or any gluten, I just don't want to get sick or be sick... The worst part is I could be reacting to cross contamination inside without it being shown externally.

      Please help me.
