Many on this board, including me, have expressed that we would never want most of our freinds and family to come on this site and read our posts, as they may not be so nice at times and could hurt the feeling of those we care for. Well something interesting just happened when I was searching online for gluten-free places to eat for an upcoming trip. My own post from here appeared about that town/visit. Now I had not said anything that would offend anyone but that is not always the case of course.

For instance, if one of your family members decdided to locate a place for you to eat while visiting with them, they could end up reading a post about how worried you are or that you're dreading the trip. Just thought I'd share what happened to me because I really was taken aback when I got a match that was a post of mine from this site. It's like we think we're just sharing with each other but of course we are sharing with the world.

Excellent point. I've always thought of the Internet as a completely public space. My kids were annoyed for years because I would not get a computer, then would not get on the internet. (We don't have television either) It's good to be reminded.

Yep. While some blogs have privacy filters, or at least filters that allow posts to not be indexed by search engines, this isn't a blog, and this doesn't have such a filter. It's always best to imagine that you're saying whatever you're saying to everyone you know now, and could meet in the future. It gives an interesting perspective on self-censorhip, I've learned the hard way.

Except that I have a very common name and there are thousands with it!!! Sometimes it's an advantage, usually it's a problem, like when trying to buy a house and suddenly my credit shows I owe thousands to someone ...

That's a really good point. Anyone could read what we say here if they wanted and most of us have pictures so it's easy to tell who it is!

I actually found this board by doing a search for gluten-free bread.

Thank goodness I did, because I don't know what I'd do without this board.

Thanks for the reminder... Now if only I could get a member of my family to actually do some researching on the subject!

My mom has celiac and reads this site regularly, so that keeps me accountable. :D In fact, she is able to go to my user and read all of my posts! It makes me think about what I type a little more since I know I'm not totally anonymous!

Oh, that's very true Tiffany! I had someone from my local Celiac group e-mail me that she found a post I wrote on a doctor....she was researching him. Another woman I didn't know found something I had written about a specific medication and e-mailed me b/c she just moved to my town. We had lunch together :) The internet makes it a "small world." I try to be consistent in character here online as I am in person so that I don't have to be worried about anything I write.

I googled my first name and it took me to the page that had all the information about me. Now I am thinking I should change my sign on name for here. The problem is my name is so unusual. Any ideas?

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.

    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
