Somehow, somewhere, I cc'd myself or something this past weekend.

My home is gluten free, my kids are gluten free, even my dog is gluten free. I bought myself a mini BBQ so I can enjoy hanging out with friends and family, which I used, and loved. I nearly- neurotically prepared everything from scratch for our outings this weekend, in my gluten-free kitchen, brought my own utensils everywhere, you name it, I think I covered it!

Obviously I missed something, and I know these things are bound to happen, but the sense of defeat after all the extra effort feels pretty epic tonight! I don't love whining, but getting glutened sucks!

-rant complete- ;)

I need a gluten-free hug for a different reason but I totally sympathize with yours.  (((((HUGS)))))

If you over-salt a dish while you are cooking, that's too bad. Please recite with me the real woman's motto: 'I made it, you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes!'-unknown

(((((((HUG))))))))  poor baby!  everything's gonna be ok..

 

my first camping trip i agonized and sterilized and brought everything but the kitchen sink!  still got glutened.

 

my first trip to my old home town in nj - we agonized and sterilized and on the last day, my husband says 'why are you rubbing your head?  do you have a headache?  - yup, got glutened - i even figured it out that i did it to myself (chose the wrong pan to broil shrimp - one of those ceramic coated broiler pans at my bff's house.  rookie mistake!!)  good thing we were going home the next day.  i popped half a xanax and mercifully slept for the 12 hour ride.  

 

feel better - you are not alone!  ((((((extra hugs))))))

-Lisa

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)
