: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:

      If you cant be sure then don't eat it!  
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
