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.

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
