Tired Of The Cheaters And Skeptics
0

100 posts in this topic

Ok, so I need to vent. I'm sick and tired of comming to the board and seeing titles such as cheaters and so what if I ate gluten blah!! <_<

What is up with all this lately?? It is making me not want to even visit the board anymore.

If you don't want to be healthy and stay on the diet then what in the world are you doing on these boards to begin with? If you don't want to stay healthy, then FINE!!!

It is just rediculous, you were diagnosed, you have celiac, you NEED TO FOLLOW THE DIET!! geesh.

The research is out there folks, if you don't follow the diet then you can get cancer, lupus, diabetes, infertility, etc etc etc You do not HAVE to have symptoms to get those ugly things. Many people have NO symptoms at all!!

Can we please get back to the topics here on the board. This board is for people who FOLLOW the gluten-free diet. Not people who want to cheat or who think the diet is bogus, they aren't getting anything out of the board. It is depressing having to come here everyday and defend why we SHOULD follow the diet. Look at the facts, if you are diagnosed and have celiac and are not following the diet you are only hurting yourself !!!

-Jessica :rolleyes:

*sigh* Ok, i'm done venting now, thanks for listening ;)

I know where you are coming from Jessica so don't feel alone

but I also realize that alot of the people that think that are new people to the disease and I was the same way when I was first diagnosed.

I don't think some people get the seriousness of this disease and what it can do because they have no symptoms...

Doctors don't just hand out a diagnosis for no reason and when you are diagnosed you have it..thats the end of it...

People..your fate is in your own hands...nobody can control what you eat but you...

the thing is ..people that choose to eat gluten with celiac disease will eventually have the consequences that come with that...

And I hope all of you with celiac realize the seriousness of it because I don't want anything bad to happen to any of you.

I can see why the cheating question/poll was asked, I will admit that I was interested to see how many people actually cheated. However, I can also see how the cheating topics can give newbies the wrong idea. When these topics are posted we should always emphasize that cheating is harmful to your health and give examples (like cancer, osteoporosis, infertility, ect). Although it's unhealthy and harmful to cheat, it is a personal choice. And we should encourage those who do cheat to stop.

I personally don't cheat because I'm not willing to put my health on the line.

The fact that a number of people cheat is something that, as a community, we have to deal with. If we want additional respect for the conditon, we need to start with all the people who have the condition but not the respect for it themselves.

For people who do NOT feel unhealthy if they eat gluten, it's in no way obvious that they need to avoid gluten to be healthy. It's just not that cut and dry for everyone.

I think we need to be a little more understanding and patience the changes that people need to make - and those changes are a little bit different for everyone because we all have our own different lives and our own different ways of thinking of things. I admit that I sometimes see the "oh my god how can I possibly make this change it's impossible" post and get annoyed for a minute (for various reasons) but then remember that maybe people don't cook as much as I did when I made the change (that would make it harder), maybe people don't know as much about ingredients in foods (that would make it harder), maybe people have a different family/social dynamic (that would make it harder), maybe people haven't ever made a dietary change of any kind before (that would make it harder), maybe people don't have the same resources (that would make it harder), maybe people aren't as creative just yet (that would make it harder)...

There are so many reasons why the journey of living celiac is different for everyone, and I think I've learned a lot from hearing about those different journeys - all of them.

I'm actually very understanding. However, I'm not understanding with people who continue to cheat and damage their bodies. Usually comming back to say how sick they were and wondering why they feel so bad? DUH!! :blink:

I am also not understanding when people come here to this board and criticise the diet and the people who follow it. There is a thread going on currently where a man said he about fell off his chair laughing at the kissing and gluten thread. He goes on to be rude to several folks on the board. There have been several other instances of this, not just from this person. How is that helping others??

Believe me, I remember how hard it was in the beginning. You have your doubts, you want it to all go away and have a slice of pizza!! :lol:

Fact is, you have a diagnosis, no matter how hard that is, cheating and having that doughnut or whatever isn't helping. It also isn't helping to come here and knock down people who are trying to get better and trying to make it on this diet. The board is for support, support of people who FOLLOW the diet. If they aren't following it, or if they don't believe in it, then why in the world are they here?

The doubters really don't bother me so much. The way I look at it, if reading all the posts of all the hell we have gone through sheds some light on their knowledge of the dangers of the disease, then I am glad they are here....

A different perspective to look at it is this way. Take into consideration the philosophy of AA. If the people in AA didn't keep on trying to get alcoholics to "see the light", then their power would be greatly diminished and their successes would be few and far between if they just gave up on people and didn't understand their "denial" and work with it......

Nah, get a 24 of some good ol' Canadian beer. Lots of barley in those! (We would get better results with bottles then cans though, bottles can be nasty!) That would do the trick, eh? ;)

Take off, eh? You know I was thinking the same thing, eh? Might as well go out with a Coffee Crisp and a cup o Horton's finest, eh?

I bought some whole grain Kamut a couple of years ago. I was intimidated by how big of a grain it is! Like four times the size of a rice grain. Never ate any of it. I had Kamut bread but preferred Spelt bread to it. Supposed to be really healthy, but not for us. It's an ancient version of wheat.

Beer would be ok, but he'd enjoy it way too much... (I know I would! Death by beer!!!)

It was my impression that this board, in particular this section on coping with the disease, exists to SUPPORT people who follow the diet, people who are trying to follow the diet, people who are trying to understand celiac disease and all its implications, including how other people cope or don't cope with it. Attacking people with a "follow the diet or die and don't question anything" attitude is neither helpful nor supportive.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
