Just last weekend the strangest thing happened again, as it happens every few weeks. We live in a development near a shopping mall. Outside the mall is a Chinese food buffet. This yummy buffet has these invisible tentacles that snake out every few Sundays and grab me out of my house, sometimes right off the sofa and drag me into the restaurant. I don't want to go, after all I am on a gluten free diet and I know I can't eat that stuff... but these tentacles are very strong and I cannot fight them. So I do my best to eat the sushi, mussles, shrimp, baked salmon but it's funny how those spring rolls and those little crispy triangles with cream cheese find their way onto my plate. Even their sweet and sour chicken has a tendency to drop onto my plate. Well it is usually Wednesday before I feel better. Today is my Remicade infusion so I most likely won't be subject to those temptations this weekend.

My cravings are for: Big, greasy, juicy, bacon cheeseburger with fries and brown gravy (I'm Canadian), or a Harvey's burger, or donuts from Tim Hortons, or Poutine, or a real Canadian Jewish bagel with cream cheese and lox, or ketchup potato chips, or a huge order of Swiss Chalet...*sigh*

I had a month from my positive blood work until my biopsy, so I know I was eating lots of gluten things. But the thing that sticks into my head was our halloween party Oct.25, 2008. We had cupcakes and we made a sandwich in the shape of a snake with lots of yummy cheese and lunch meat inside. I had already had the biopsy a couple of days before this, and since the party had been planned for months, I decided I was eating what I wanted until they called me with the results. I found out about 3 days later that I had villi blunting. I went gluten free after that next morning. I accidently ate milky way bite size candy bars this past halloween not realizing they had barley malt in them until after the fact.

Hi Jennifer,

I remember you--welcome back :D

Your best bet would be to contact Scott Adams, the site owner. Just go to the board index and click on 'admin' to PM him.

Hi! I remember you too! I contacted Scott Adams and he combined the other 2 into this account.

OMG these days I'm so tempted to have a slice of pizza or maybe some KFC. That new "double" thing they came out with is really calling my name. I have so many other allergies that it would be a real doozy if I did decide to buy one though.

I don't remember the last thing I ate... but after my GI appointment I was very disappointed because I had made an amazing sandwich in the morning to eat on the way home and I couldn't eat it... But the GI didn't tell me anything about the disease (seems to be the running trend) so I just took the stuff off the bun and ate it anyways...

I have to give credit to Erratic - -she mentioned animal crackers as her last "gluten" item she intentionally ate.

What was the last Gluten-Item you INTENTIONALLY ate?

For me, it was a mug full of beer. Around the summer of 1998 at Ohio State...it was wonderful, for a few hours... :o

Pizza on a cruise and will never have it again. I did have a about a month ago and had no problems. Had one again the following weekend to see and still not problems. I know, I know...please do not respond to my drinking these beers because I know you all will say that still doesn't mean it was good for you even though you didn't have symptoms. Just imagine if we could still drink beer and were only affected by food that contains wheat. I just don't understand how one little rice chex with a smidgen of p-nut butter could make me bloated and a beer did nothing to me that I could feel.

My gluten challenge made me so sick, I was beyond relieved when the time came to give up gluten, but . . .

I DREAM ABOUT EATING GLUTEN ALL THE TIME!

I'll be at a party and take a bite or two of crackers, cake or a cookie before remembering I shouldn't eat it.

Then I freak out. Then I wake up. Fun.

My "last supper" was fettuccini Alfredo and tons of bread at our favorite Italian place, the night before my endoscopy.

And, I agree with others- if there ever is a cute for Celiac's, I'm going to gain some serious weight stuffing my face with all the foods I miss! :rolleyes:

My last intentional glutening was about a year after I was diagnossed. I'd always loved making yummy loaves of beautiful bread and made several different kinds for a party. It smelled so danged good, I cut off a big hunk, slathered it w/ tons of butter, and chowed it down, while my daughter was yelling, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!" It was absolutely delicious.

And I had NO repurcussions... none. I started making a list, thinking that maybe I could plan a "cheat" once a month or so. Subway Tuna hoagie, Pizza Hut stuffed crust pizza, a bagel w/ tons of cream cheese and lox, a Philly cheese steak, a Big Mac, any pasta dish in an Italian restaurant...

I realized that I wasn't 100% gluten-free in my everyday diet... peeps here set me straight! My symptoms were fairly mild. The next time I was accidentally glutened, my reaction was way more severe and now I wouldn't put gluten in my mouth for anything!!

But, holy cow... was that bread good!!

I wonder how many others have experienced similar situations: Healed . . . screw up . . . everhthing is fine . . . but when you try it again, WHAM! I would love to know.

I agree: I wouldn't put gluten in my mouth for anything. Nothing tastes as good as being healthy feels.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
