My son drinks rice milk (Rice Dream - yes, I know it's not gluten-free....neither is he). I drink soy milk. Since I am the only one who drinks the soy milk, I just drink it right out of the jug. Well, Rice Dream and my soy milk look quite a bit a like, and I went to take a swig of soy, and got the wrong jug!! I don't really taste it until I've already swallowed it, so it was too late. Felt yuck for two days over one little swig. And the "funny" thing is.....I've done it twice since going gluten-free!!! What a nerd I am!!!
LOL...see....we're all dingy sometimes.
Celiac, gastroparesis, PCOD, heart problems, pacemaker.
Diagnosed 7-12-04 via bloodwork. Never had a biopsy, doc didn't think it was necessary (said I would know just by going gluten-free).
gluten-free two weeks after diagnosis (and my last bag of Oreos). :-)

I am Gluten free since Feb-04...I can't handle many of the breads but I have always liked corn pancakes so the gluten-free pancakes are a staple in my house. My wife and son have no problems with gluten and I don't punish them and make them go gluten-free with me although they actually do like the pancakes. Well, while buttering my cakes one day, I must have taken some toast crumbs on the end of the stick with my pancakes...big mistake! I was running every 30 min. for a day and a half and felt sicker than dog!
Lesson learned...have 2 sticks of butter (peanut butter and jelly too)...a gluten-free stick for myself and let the rest of the family have their own.

My problem is I may be asympomatic, or very nearly! I would not notice cross-contamination, or crumbs! Or maybe I'm so used to a bit of rumbly tummy, that I don't think anything of it??? It makes it so hard to know if I'm getting cross-contamination!
I'm going on my first cruise in 3 1/2 weeks, since going gluten-free. I hope I do okay! Princess line has said they can help me. I'll have to be careful, on my own, as wouldn't want to get sick on vacation! I'm hoping their ham is gluten-free, as then I can have a fresh made omelet for breakfast, which are always good. Those bunless burgers are becoming my usual, or a salad with my own dressing packets, for lunch out. Dinner should be easier.
Anyone else cruised with celiac disease?
