That looks suspiciously like an empty fridge, not a gluteny fridge as you described. At any rate, if you feel like your attitude is that you can just disregard your disease at any point just because you feel like it I'm not sure what you want from  us here. None of us will support that attitude, but if you need help or support in being gluten free we are more than happy to help.

Celiac Disease doesn't have to define who you are, but it can't simply be ignored. Well, ok, it can if you want, but that would be choosing a lifetime of health issues. Sure, might not be life-threatening, but do you really want to spend your whole life feeling like crud most of the time?

 

Even in a "bachelor fridge" you should be able to scrounge up something safe to tie you over. Just make sure it's not moldy. 

 

Good luck

The fridge is full of goods all with Gluten, but you're starving and you haven't eaten all day.

No shops are open

 

Discuss your next decision here and your reasoning...

 

Seems to be my downfall alot. My general decision is given in to hunger pains and pray for a better tomorrow (it never comes)

 

Well, eating gluten is harmful, while fasting for a night won't hurt. Since shops would eventually open in the morning, I'd rather go hungry until then than ruin my life for a few weeks. A little hunger doesn't hurt, gluten does .. Just think of it as poison.. which it is if you're celiac :-)

Firstly people need to calm down on the judgement and rhetoric, so I didn't answer in a week so what!

My doctor diagnosed a Coeliac at 86 calm down on the you'll be dead by 30 business, genetics overiding factor in everything why do some smokers die at 30 and some at 90 genetics.

 

Yes planning is working I've been Gluten-Free for a while now somewhere between 2 and 4 weeks and it's just getting easier.

I am not definded by Coeliac and reserve the right to disregard it at any point I so choose.

Hasn't anyone seen fight club fridge? This is what the fridge of a bachelor generally looks like.

 

If you don't want to take responsibility for who you are and what your body is, ok.  But if you make that choice - and you're right to make that choice - don't go whining about the crappy outcome.  You made your choice, hence, you also accepted the consequences.  If you don't want to take responsibility for stocking your fridge at all, ok, but don't complain about being hungry, it was your choice to go hungry.  If you don't want to take responsibility to eat gluten free, ok, but don't complain about feeling unwell; it was your choice to feel unwell.

 

I know I sound unsympathetic.  And to a degree I am.  It's not "feathers ruffled" at all, it's just, why should I bother helping you when you clearly don't take any personal responsibility?  I require more personal responsibility out of my three year old.  (I'm not kidding either - not on big things that she's not cognitively able to handle, but things that are within her developmental range.)

 

If you want ideas on how people do take responsibility with minimum effort, great!  We can do that.

If you want ideas on how people find resources to make it easier to stay minimally responsible, great!  We can do that!

If you want ideas on how people deal with the psychological side of being dealt the crappy hand that is celiac, great!  We can do that!

 

If you just want to act like an irresponsible loaf who doesn't like that actions and choices sometimes have unpleasant consequences... Well, go ahead, but you'll probably get a lot more judgement, so be prepared for that consequence from that choice.

 

(And, by the way, the single guys I've known over time have a FAR better-stocked fridge than that.)

Well, I was going to say something (I've been gone all day and just saw that UC has returned to read all our posts)..but I am too late because you guys have said it all. I'll just say "what they just said".

 

Kiddo, GO SHOPPING and stop glutening yourself. :)

Your attitude about this is all wrong.

It's not the worst thing on the planet to be a celiac.

Not by a long shot.

 

Guys who have a full fridge and a full bar and know how to cook are a helluva lot sexier than guys who do not.

Trust us women on this one.

I hope you get it together soon because life is too short to be pissed off 24/7.

(yes, I have seen your signature line and I see you changed it again.)

 

You could have the biggest group of supporters here if you'd get past the anger.

Best wishes.

My next decision would be to make a resolution to plan more.
 
You can freeze cooked rice in Sandwich bags and have cans of black or red beans in the pantry.  If you make gluten-free pasta, it's just as easy to make a whole bag of it as it is to make a small portion, then freeze single portion sizes.  Same with soups or chili or practically anything.  
 
Then you have to ask yourself a day or 2 in advance what you are going to eat the next couple of days, and move stuff from the freezer to the refrigerator.  
 
The staples I always keep are cheese, milk, tomato sauce, salsa, rice cakes,  corn or rice chips, peanut butter, eggs, various canned beans, frozen and canned fish,  romaine lettuce and root vegetables.
 
Even if you don't feel inspired to make something delicious, you can have something in your refrigerator or pantry to eat safely and avoid hunger pains.
 
Good luck, wish you well.

There is always something around now, it may not be what I want, but there is something.  Very few offensive foods left and I need to clean out the pantry again and remove whatever is still there.  I left some things for kids, but kids should not have it either.  I have found that sometimes when I am hungry, just something to nibble on, and then cup of tea, is all I really needed.

And my husband has also made bread for us when I was so ill I could barely walk or think.

 

That's not molly-coddling, that's compassion. 

 

And anyway, the snarky comment  that was made is irrelevant to the discussion which, in my opinion, has been derailed.

 

Karen has posted a thread to help people "stock up" on emergency food.Let's channel this into a more positive discussion, shall we?

Mine too, but my kids always eat the emergency food.  So, I shop twice a week and keep fresh things in the frige.  There always smoothie ingredients and that will really energize you.  Toast, almond butter, jam and green tea, I am ready to go again, and that is a FAST snack.

Unhappy thanks for the reply, I think, (correct me if I am wrong) I understand  better now what you are saying. 

(I'm not contradicting what anyone else here is saying btw)

We sometimes forget social pressures people put on each other. In this case I am familiar with the "un-coolness" of perceived domesticity in a group of single men.

Unhappy, I'm going to ask you to consider your moniker. You named yourself didn't you? However cool it may be to maintain your way of life, it's not bringing you what you are looking for, right?

Consider this: We all know of people who are trendsetters, strong and proud, who are considered ultimately cool because they don't care what anyone thinks. Here is your chance to stand out from the crowd. 

You know what is sexy? The confidence that comes from contentment. Be your own person, set your own stage and if anyone mocks your choices, look straight through them like the glassy surface they are. There is reason for hearing someone attractive described as having "always taken good care of them-self". Holding yourself in high esteem indicates to others a reason to find you worthy of their esteem. 

Elevate your position in the world by taking good care of yourself. Your individuality is ultimately the coolest.
