Thanks for the laugh :D

How's this:

There are toilet paper rolls in your....... purse, car, luggage, lunchbox, right next to all your different bottles of IMODIUM.

You've figured out a way to incorporate fiber into your HOMEMADE ICE CREAM.

You've actually spent time trying to figure out a recipe request for egg, dairy, soy, vinegar, mustard free MAYONNAISE.

You actually prefer going potty outdoors to using public restrooms, because they're all so GROSS.

One of your (main) considerations for a new job is the POTTY PROXIMITY.

Thank you--these are very funny! (I didn't know other people had wheat-eating nightmares too! I spit it all out and wake up yelling.) I'd add

You know you are a celiac if you make your own cheese (from cashews).

You know you are a celiac if you sometimes shout swear words while grocery shopping.

You know you are a celiac if you've actually called the 1-800 numbers on food packages.

Or how about, You know you have Celiac KIDs when...

... You still carry a diaper bag with wipes and extra clothes, even though your kids are 7 and 5.

... Every so often, there's a bad week, and you have to do a "poop load" of laundry.

... Your small children understand the concept of contamination, and stop other people from contaminating their food.

... Your 5-year-old has a screaming, flailing tantrum, and your response is, "Did your teachers give you Play-Doh yesterday?!"

I love the part about ramming the display with the shopping cart!

More:

-You cannot watch a movie without thinking-- my god! That man just ate a huge bowl full of wheat (spaghetti!) And you marvel that he didn't get sick and can still beat the bad guy.

-You hold your breath when you walk by the bakery section or drive by a wheat field so you don't accidentally breathe any of it it.

-You burst into tears when you realize as you are putting away groceries that you missed the gluten ingredient on the ingredients list of something you were really looking forward to.

-You cannot make yourself walk down the cereal aisle of the grocery store because you hear the music from jaws playing in your head

-You make the waiter tear the label off the bacon/ soup/ dressing/ whatever and pronounce it okay, only to get sick from cc anyway

-You have the pharmacist getting out a magnifying glass to try to see if you can take the medicine the doctor ordered.

-You know where every restroom is in the mall, in town, on campus, on the road to your parents' house, on the road to the next towns.... you navegate by restrooms!

You know you have celiac if...

1. You have ever had to make the decision whether to buy a loaf of gluten-free bread for yourself or a roast to feed

your whole family. (After all, they cost about the same)!

2. While leaving a public restroom, you have ever blamed your BM on another woman. (I think it's that lady in the end stall) :ph34r:

3. You walk to the seafood section of the grocery store to let loose a poot. (Who can smell it over the fish?)

I needed this laugh...you guys are great!

hugs. -Julie

1.You know you are a celiac when you are grocery shopping and come across a new gluten free product and you scream "yes"

2. You know you are a celiac when you have to take out a second mortage to pay for a week's worth of gluten free foods.

Ha! These were great, they made me laugh :lol:

My personal Celiac moment:

You know if you're a Celiac if you scream infrustration of seeing 'GUILT-FREE' on food boxes and mistaking it as 'gluten-free'.

I don't like whoever coined that phrase.

....in a moment of desparation and out of sheer hunger, you've ever thoroughly washed and thoroughly dried, with a paper towel, a piece of ham or deli meat before eating it, just in case it might have been cross contaminated.

Those are great!!! Thanks for the laugh everyone!!!

You know you're Celiac when you are excited to find another one of "You" (you know that feeling, like you've found a long lost family member of something!!) buying gluten-free stuff at the store... especially when it's something you haven't tried because you can ask them ALL about it!

    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I agree Katie, the gluten challenge isn't worthwhile for some people.  Regardless of your test results, I think you know the answer is not to eat gluten anymore.  I hope you recover quickly from the damage.
    • Last posted 2013 - Improving health
      I am glad you are feeling so much better!  Your posting will encourage others.  Thank you!
    • Last posted 2013 - Improving health
      When I first started this journey, roughly 11 yrs ago with symptoms, I had no clue. Eventually, having no luck with doctors (hypochondriac or psychosomatic), I googled my symptoms over and over looking for something... ANYTHING... that would give me a clue. Among other issues, my insides would not move, I was turning gray, felt like death, and had a persistent cough. I can't remember who but someone had posted on the forum and I found some of my symptoms. Eureka, I immediately began a gluten-free diet to see if it made any difference. Of course that was a journey, not realizing what products contained gluten. Long story shorter – first I went gluten-free, symptoms began to reappear, then it was soy (first organic was okay, then not), symptoms reappeared, took out corn, symptoms reappeared, then it was all grains. So the last couple of years I have been grain-free plus no sulphates. Actually, truth be told, my Celiac pharmacist gave me the recipe for health. I asked her if she liked a certain product. She answered, “I don't know, I have never tried it.” I asked her what she did use. She replied, “Nothing out of a box, a bag, or a bottle.” And that has pretty much been my life for the last couple of years. There is the odd product I try but it always has an after effect and I have to way the consequences against the enjoyment of it. I am one of those who react to 1 crumb in the butter, flour dust in the air, sulphates in anything, sometimes things that don't even seem like they would be a problem, like avocados and blueberries when I am contaminated. January 2016 I began this recitation. It is now May 5th, 2016 - Here I am 4 months later and I feel like screaming to anyone who will listen, “Things are improving!! My gut is healing!!” So what happened?? Someone suggested digestive enzymes. My insides were so compromised that I couldn't eat much besides fruit, veggies, and meat; all plain, all without being touched by people other than me. I could barely stand salt at times when I was compromised. Haven't been to a restaurant in years since I am not in a city that would have one to cater or understand this much of a problem. I started digestive enzymes but I read the label wrong and started with 5 first thing in the morning. Whatever... I began to notice improvements in what I could eat. Not anything different but just that I could eat without feeling ill or having my gut shut down. I stayed on those for a month and a half.. then I picked up a parasite from someone living in a very unclean apartment and visiting there and helping to clean. Well, that was a huge battle. I had to eat to discourage parasites. But in the process my insides began to heal dramatically. I was eating blackberries, drinking garlic keefir (which I couldn't have done 5 mths ago and gave me the first clue my insides had improved substantially), drinking oil of oregano or peppermint oil drops in a glasses of water, eating cabbage and green roughage. Drinking water with apple cider vinegar in it and Aloe Vera juice. After a couple of weeks my insides were a whole different story. I had a feeling of wellness that I hadn't had for years! I FELT like trying to eat something different. So I decided to try Gluten-free Rice Chex. Haven't had them in years.... and I am so happy! I can eat them!! (Not to say they are healthy, cause they are processed crap) but I didn't get sick and that was the amazing part. So now I am beginning to try a few things that would have set me back previously, I have made my own crème brulee because I have always been able to eat eggs. But the sugar was causing problems, but now it's okay. The issue I have now is that I want to try things too fast so I am having to exercise restraint. So here is it – parasites are very common, everyone has them however whether they cause problems depends on your immune system. Does it not makes sense that they would cause leaky gut? An over abundance in the gut would destroy gut tissue and take nutrients from a person and possibly put holes in the gut leading to food reactions? Digestive enzymes help to destroy the protective coating around parasites. Foods that discourage them or kill them are blackberries, garlic, cabbage, oil of oregano, peppermint oil, aloe vera juice, Braggs apple cider vinegar and more (google to find). I found medication didn't do anything so I turned to all the other. So this is how it is today. I don't suggest it is the answer to anyone else's problems but when I found this site, hidden in the posts was the beginning of the answers for me.  I may still be gluten, soy, corn intolerant but I am feeling so good now and I just thought I would tell someone.  I just wanted to share. Thanks for reading.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      Not to mention my hips and knees are killing me and I have really bad calf pains and horrible bloating after just 3 days of glutening. I don't think I could live like this for a whole week.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I saw my gi today and he said to not worry about eating gluten. I have abdominal pain in the small intestine area and referred pain in my back, indicating pretty bad damage. So I'll just go without the gluten and do the genetic testing if needed.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
