Is is possible for you to get a job at a place that doesn't serve food? At least that way your job wouldn't be an extra gluten-related stress for you...

I know that flour can stay airborne for at least four hours so if you've got flour, breading and things being fried, it's not good. The smell wouldn't gluten you, but the flying particles of doom could.
I would definitely see what you can do about finding other work. What do you do where you work (like waiter? server? cook?). Maybe you could bartend or host or something that gets you away from the kitchen??? Just a thought.

ok question of slite stupidity. If your working with food, and you are able to smell it, like im making a fish sandwich for someone and i can smell the fish(breaded) does that meen im breathing in particals of the fish?? Or is sent something diffrent, just trying to make sure im not breathing in constant gluten making peoples foods (im extra carefull about my hands and what not)
When I was unknowingly glutened from the dust created from the drywall paste, it was getting in my hair and on my clothes, shoes, and even on my pet poodle. When I finished for the day I had to wash my hair and I'm sure I got glutened that way, also from the clothes and the dog, etc. Are you being careful not to carry home the particles from working around that stuff all day? Getting into another type of job would definitely help. Perhaps if you went to the board of labor and explained your situation they could help. When I became disabled and unable to work as a nurse they actually paid for some computer training. You seem to be very adept at computers, perhaps you could find another line of work especially if your doctor would back you up that you shouldn't be working there.
The one resolution, which was in my mind long before it took the form of a resolution, is the key-note of my life. It is this,always to regard as mere impertinences of fate the handicaps which were placed on my life almost at the beginning. I resolved that they should not crush or dwarf my soul, but rather be made to blossom, like Aaron's rod, with flowers-Helen Keller

If you're sure you're not inhaling gluten I wouldn't worry about that though.

there are options for better jobs. List all your good qualities, be sure to include that you eat healthy food.
There are good companies and employers that look at other things besides your education. You can have a Phd but if you are out carousing all night, you do not make a good employee when you drag into the workplace hungover.
everyone respects a person that is trying to better themselves, or they should anyway.
labyrinth Publications has books on all the computer office programs, they are about $20.00 each or you can go to the library, these courses are designed to be self taught, just start on page one & go thru the book. If you have no money & no computer you can go to any library and use their computer etc. Even a junior college, I bet if you explained your situation and asked for library privileges that you could get them & maybe some part time work.
You could also check around (gastro or pedi docs) to see if there are any moms that need a gluten-free babysitter.
make a list...
You have to want & believe in something better before you can get it.

the other things are great suggestions. i actually work for an online company - so even when i'm sick i dont have to get out of my jammies. trust me - everything happens for a reason - i am strong believer in that.
