:lol: Those are good and oh so true. :lol:

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.

Thank you for the bittersweet laugh. How about ...you eat before or after going to a pot luck :( or... you take your own cake to a birthday party.

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!

Davey Boy-- your post was so Funny ! ! ! ! :D

You know you are a celiac---- if when traveling, your husband stops at Burger King and you have to hope for a grocery store near the Interstate where you can rush in and buy an avacado to tide you over til you get home . :angry:

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
    • My daughter had the HPV Vaccine last year. It was administered in three doses in April 2015, May 2015, and August 2015. Immediately after the third dose, she started having weird symptoms such has headaches, irritability, and a general feeling of being unwell (which she never had before). About three months later she started having gastro symptoms, most notably constant nausea. For several months we tried to figure out what was wrong and none of the doctors knew. After seeing many doctors and having a battery of tests, she was finally diagnosed with Celiac in August 2016. Her intestinal damage was a 3b Marsh score. No one else in our immediate or extended family has Celiac (myself and my other daughter were tested and are negative). No one else has symptoms or any indication that they could have Celiac. I feel like my daughter could have gone her whole life without being triggered and I'm feeling very guilty for making her get this controversial vaccine. I have done a lot of research and there seems to be conflicting studies regarding vaccines and autoimmune diseases. Some say there is no link, while others say there is a possible link, but it cannot be proven at this time. No one seems to know for sure what triggers Celiac...could it be vaccines? I'm wondering if anyone else feels that their Celiac Disease was triggered by a vaccine?  
    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!
