I had to throw 3 slices away because I wasn't thinking and put it in the wrong toaster! ACK!

also know you're gluten free when you start having nightmares about eating something with gluten.

I did that same thing with my new toaster......I thought setting #3 would to be fine. Way to dark, but I ate it....it was Udi's and I wasn't about to throw it away! :P

LOL i had one (nightmare) this morning that i was heating my last piece of The Most Awesome gluten-free Pizza Ever (doesn't exist, sigh, it was a dream...) and somebody chucked a huge piece of italian bread on top of it!!

you know you're gluten free if all the inbox photos on your phone are pictures of grocery packages or ingredients (my husband lol is always second guessing at the store, God bless him!)

At least he cares enough to second guess:) My husband does the same thing except it's calling me a bunch of times while he is shopping (annoying at times but at least he cares enough to take the time)

You know you are gluten free if you call a company and stay on hold for ten minutes to find out if their food is gluten free waiting in the same palace given that the cell reception in the store is spotty. And you just smile at the store personnel who is stocking food across the aisle from you.

Haha, I always wondered who an earth would call those info lines. Now I know - me! And yes, there is always someone stocking the shelves near by...

You know you're gluten free when your fear of being near people eating toast (or garlic bread, agh!) has become stronger than your fear of spiders.

You know you're gluten free if you know the best prices and places to buy amaranth, quinoa and teff.

Here We Go:

(This brought laughing tears to my eyes many years ago.)

...enjoy!

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
