Amazing!

Okay, I shouldn't be so amazed, but I was! I had some baked beans at my granddaughter's school, for barbecue day. I knew I shouldn't trust them, and just have the bunless burger and lettuce with my own dressing. But, no, it didn't seem like enough food, so took a small serving. Dumb me! Anyway, I don't seem to have much for symptoms, but this time had some stomach distress, and was sluggish and tired for a few days. I've been probably mostly gluten-free for 4+ months, and had felt better for the most part, while I made some mistakes. But, now that I've gotten the hang of this diet, I made that mistake, and learned something from it. I'd been wondering how I would feel if I had gluten food. Now I know! I am so sorry it wasn't over a chocolate cupcake, real pizza, a whole hamburger, or one of my other favorite foods, rather than baked beans! :lol:

Anyone else with a similar stupid story???

Oh, I think we have all made a stupid mistake at some point, especially in the beginning. My stupid thing was with oats. I didn't understand the cross-contamination" issue and I ate a huge bowl of Chocolate Oaties cereal. The box said wheat free so I just figured they are all right. The products I eat should say "wheat free/gluten free." Anyway the cereal tasted delicious but the four days of burning stomach/abdominal pain just wasn't worth it. So now I bought Chocolate Krispies (made out of rice that are wheat free/gluten free) and they taste even better and I feel great when I eat them.

Here's a stupid one for you.....

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!!! :unsure:

LOL...see....we're all dingy sometimes. :blink:

this might sound kind of dumb but it is easy to do and I didn't think so little would hurt me...

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.

Take care.

Thanks for your replies! I was sure everyone has done some dumb things, too!

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?

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
