Last week I posted about how I got mysteriously getting glutened from what I though was hamburger meat, turns out it was Treet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treet) I was an idiot not to notice the "contains WHEAT" thing, I guess the recipe changed on me or something.....

And to top it off I got a MAJOR glutening yesterday from Applebee's. I feel like trash.... Headache, stomach ache, joint pain, bloating, etc.


Why does the world need wheat!!!!!! Makes me so angry!!!!!

Sorry for the rant... :P

I know what you mean. It sucks to get Glutened when you are trying so hard to avoid it and it sneaks in!

We should all move to a single State and make it all gluten-free. :)

Or a tropical island with lots of palm trees and sandy beaches. Glutenfreeland is born!

I think Treet is similar to Spam right? Spam is gluten free.

I have been sick twice at Applebees and once was just with eating a salad. Never again. They don't get it. I have better luck with a potato at Wendy's!

Ahh, Shrommie, can we take over New Zealand? All those beautiful mountains and beaches to explore! Or I suppose we could settle for Maui, if New Zealand is taken, darn it.

Don't feel bad PBScooby. I bought some tuna in water tins because it was on sale a bit ago and didn't notice until after I ate a can that it had soy in it. Then I felt it. Dratted soy! Soy should be illegal in civilized countries. Along with taxes and cold weather. There, I said it. :angry: :huh: :D

I'll come to the island of Glutenfreeland. Sounds great to me. I almost sampled some beef at Costco and then read the ingredients. Contained malt. Who puts malt in beef? oh those guys.

Lots of doctors diagnosed me with lots of things including IBS, lactose intolerance, wheat intolerance, and quite a few of them threw up their hands in total confusion.

Had GI symptoms, allergy symptoms and unexplained illness my whole life.

Jan. 2010 Diagnosed celiac at the age of 40.
Ready to get well and get on with my life!

Well, if you want to convert South Island to Gluten Free Land, there's a lot of baggage that comes with it. Sure the scenery is fab as Gee Eff points out , the folks are friendly (and many are gluten hep and free :D ) However, we have been having a few little problems lately. Like 7.1 earthquakes with thousands of aftershocks (down to only about one a day now though), and exploding coal mines killing 29 miners and too much gaseous gas to even get in there and retrieve the bodies :o We are on the Pacific 'Rim of Fire' with earthquakes, and active volcanoes, and hardly the tropical south pacific - heck we are the closest land mass to Antarctica except for Tierra del Fuego, and the US bases all its Antarctic operations out of my home town :rolleyes: So maybe we should take over Tahiti - nah, not big enough!!, and certainly not Oz (not an island, and all those spiders and snakes and alleygaters, no wait, crockadialsl :lol: Shoot, there is few places on earth that is perfect :lol:

I'm all for the island idea. As for Applebee's. Ugh. They get me everytime. Last time I had a plain salad and a plain hamburger and got sick, the manager was supposedly cooking my food personally and on foil too. No need to feel like an idiot. We all slip up!

We stopped going to Applebees years ago, pre gluten-free, because the service was always awful and the food never right. This was at many different locations in the town where their headquarters were.

Thank you for all the replies!

As far as Applebee's go, I used to have the BEST luck going there. I'm under suspicion to believe it's the Pepsi...I know that sounds crazy but at Applebee's that serve Coke I don't usually get sick. Go figure :P

As for the Island! I vote for anywhere warm!! I'm sick of the cold already!


As for day 3 of this adventure....I feel like poop. And I can't think of any other way to describe it.
