I Got Sick

6 posts in this topic

I came home from school yesterday and was ready to break out my toaster to make some gluten-free waffles for dinner and my mom stopped me and said that I bought you a Greek salad from where they got there pizza from. Now i have orded from here before and know that I am okay with eating there salad. well, I was finishing the last couple of bites and what do i find at the bottom of my salad a SOGGY CRUTON. I totally flipped and I am really paying for it now. It really sucks.

But needless to say my mom called and spoke with the manager and they made me a new salad and delivered it to my house. Restaurants just really dont understand how careful they need to be. But what is somthing that I could do in this case? I def. dont want this to happen again and I have eaten there many of times before and had no problems.

But I am def. hesitant about eating the new salad that they made me. Anyone have any ideas, maybe I could print out that card and give it to them and maybe that will give them a better understanding. Because they know my family in this pizza parlor, because we order from the qite offen. I need some Help!! thanks :)

P.S. celiac3270 not sure where I was supposed to post this??? hope its in the right spot B)

As much as I'm willing to occasionally deal with eating in a restaurant, I will NEVER eat food someone else ordered for me from a restaurant. (I had to turn my boss down when he did this for me one night a bunch of us worked late. I know he didn't understand, but I'm not going to get sick over it.) If _I_ can't be there to explain the situation, and guage how well the person I talked to understands my request, I ain't eatin' it. ;-) But that's how I deal with the situation... Maybe I'm just a control freak. :-) :-P

I don't think we are control freaks, ok well maybe we are, but it's because we HAVE to be in order to stay safe. I feel the same way. If I didn't order it, I am not eating it!!

Yea I understand your position, but this was my mom and she is extremely carefull and explained everthing to them. I still live at home and she goes to all of my doctors appts. with me and has been there for me the entire time, so it is def. there fault. because when she ordered the food she explained to them and that is why i guess they made me a new salad and delivered it to my house. But she is very knowledable about the diease and understands my needs because I live at home. I just think that the resaurtant just slipped up, but they took responsibility and made me a new one.

I was just looking for an idea on how better educated the pizza parlor, just so that they are extra careful everytime! Thanks :D

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
