Keep Your Hands Off My Glass!
0

5 posts in this topic

We went out to dinner tonight at a place where we dine a couple of times a month. They don't have a gluten-free menu but they can make a plain chicken breast for my daughter and she gets it on a taco salad minus the dairy. They don't put their salad in the big flour tortilla bowl. Instead it comes with chips.

So they we were, when all of a sudden her dad started putting his hands all over her glass! Why? Who knows. He was eating a burger on a bun.

She got really mad at him and told him to keep his wheaty hands off of her glass. She was diagnosed just over 7 years ago and he still doesn't get it. *sigh*

The last time I ate out I noticed the waiter handed out bread baskets then brought our water glasses.....handed the glass to me...with palm over the top of the glass....and fingertips touching where I would be drinking from. ARRRGH! I thought...can that put gluten in me? Paranoid of trace gluten...just not worth it to me. I didn't drink the water...

Sorry her dad did that! But she is right and I'm glad she spoke up.

Keep your wheaty hands off my glass!! Good for her!

Because I used to waitress, I am a very critical customer. And this is my pet peeve! I KNOW that a server's hands have been handling money and dirty napkins, as well as gluten filled products. If a server brings my drink that way, I politely point that out to them, then ask for a new drink. Even then, I always use a straw.

I'm trying to imagine why someone would do something like that. Was he trying to be funny? Good for her for standing up for herself!

With him? Who knows. He does all sorts of things he shouldn't do or that make no sense.

Once when we were first married I went to his grandma's house for Christmas Eve dinner. His family is Italian and the tradition is that all the women gather together to make the dinner. I had offered to help but was told I could not. I did help prepare some things in advance at his parent's house. They do use specific recipes and his mom hovered over me to make sure I did things right. Alas she gave me the wrong peppers for stuffing. His dad grew them and later pickled them. He grew two kinds. Sweet and hot.

So there I was, cutting the ends off of these little round peppers and taking out the seeds like she told me to. But my hands were on fire! She wound up getting really mad at me. I was almost in tears. I ran out and stuck my hands in the snow trying to cool them. I know now that isn't the thing to do. And after she took over the job after getting really angry with me, she apologized. Now her hands were on fire.

I tried soaking my hands in milk and even putting butter on them and wiping it off. Nothing would take the burning away for two whole days.

So then we went to the family dinner. I drink diet soda and only diet soda. I can't stand regular soda never could. And now I am diabetic so it isn't even an option. I already knew that his family only ever had regular soda with their meals. So I brought my own can of diet soda.

His mom announced that she had used the wrong peppers for the stuffed peppers and to eat them with caution because they were really hot. Well... He wasn't listing to her. Took a ton of the peppers and stuffed his mouth with them. Then his mouth was on fire. And he had consumed all of his drink. There were two 2 liter containers of soda sitting right behind him. He could have easily refilled his glass. But instead, he took my can and drank it all. I was horrified. He didn't even ask! And there I was, left with nothing to drink. We were eating in the basement. There was no faucet down there. No water. Just the regular soda.

He does have ADHD. So that may be the reason why he does the sorts of things that he does. But it is greatly annoying!

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
