Aren't some hot water bottles filled with wheat?

I just can't not eat the cake. I want to have what everyone else is having :angry:

It's too late by now anyway. Usually my reactions are over within 12 hours. I don't think it would be more than 24-48 hours and we'll be flying over to Spain for the honeymoon 2 days later. Maybe I'll try and strengthen my immune system and be well rested before the day so I withstand the *attack* better. :huh:

None that I am aware of. Hot water bottles are rubber, you fill them with water. I think there might be reusable heat packs that have grain. But, they make the fillings out of other materials as well, I had one with cherry pits. You can make one and fill it with rice and dried lavender, but you'd need to be able to sew.

I live in the south and down here we usually have 2 cakes at a wedding - the traditional white wedding cake and a groom's cake that is usually chocolate. Since you've already ordered the wedding cake with gluten, do you think you could get a gluten free groom's cake and use that to eat? That way you could still have your pretty wedding cake and wouldn't have to worry about getting sick. Your piece would be sliced first, so you wouldn't have to worry about cross contamination. And you could put the cakes on two separate tables to help with the CC issue too.

Good luck! Hope you have a great wedding and honeymoon.

I'm unsure from what you've written as to whether you have eaten gluten within the past few weeks and had little reaction or whether you've been 100% gluten free since diagnoses and are judging your gluten reaction on what you felt before going gluten free. If so I'm going to have to add to the posts urging you not to eat the cake. The first time I was glutened (100% by accident) I was in the bathroom within an hour. Plus when the urge hit I had literally less than 2 minutes to get to the bathroom!!! Thank God I was so close! Then I got a terrible rash, bloating, fatigue, joint aches, and continued diarrhea for the next couple of weeks. I can assure you that that reaction was nothing like what I felt before going gluten free.

Thank you for all your replies. We got something sorted today. The whole cake will be gluten-free and will have the same design. We were referred to a retired cake decorator and baker who'd had experience in gluten-free and she said she'd be willing to do it just this once. :)

The cost will be about double that of the original, but that's ok. Great someone cares enough to do it. I'll let you know how it is.

*sighs of relief* ;)

I'm So glad for you! I bet no one will even know it's gluten-free unless you tell them!

Thanks everyone for being so supportive. The day came and it was absolutely great. I feel so guilty now for contemplating eating a normal cake.

The gluten free wedding cake was so good. We didn't even tell anyone else I'm celiac, only the venue staff knew and everything served was gluten free. :)

Had it not been for this forum I don't think we would have been convinced to make alternative plans, so once again THANK YOU!

We're on our honeymoon at the moment, and the gluten-free food offerings have been really good, too! :D

That's AWESOME! If I'd known then what I know now, I would have gone gluten free BEFORE my wedding instead of waiting until afterwards. My wedding was Sept 10 and my last day of consuming gluten was Sept 13. While my wedding day was all that I wanted it to be, I definately did not enjoy is like I could have had I felt the way I do now. Instead I had two of the WORST mouth sores I've ever had in my life, my hemrroids were HORRIBLY painful, my body ached, etc...

The honeymoon was a success! Not once was I ill. Didn't have internet for the time I was away, so just saw the replies now. Thanks so much for your support (and not just leaving it for me to do 'whatever').

I keep wondering 'what if'. I need to stop and be sensible. :unsure:

But everyone has been so accommodating and supportive. Now, hopefully I may live well on this diet.

You do need to stop and be sensible. You're not gluten intolerant where you eat wheat according to your symptoms. You're celiac and every time you eat wheat, your immune system will start attacking your body. You may not feel much but the damage adds up (as I'm sure you well know). I have thyroid autoimmunity from not being diagnosed and eating wheat for too long. There are other folks on the board with arthritis or nasty neurological damage.

Get your kitchen set up, learn to cook, and enjoy all the great gluten-free foods that we CAN eat. B)

Welcome back! Glad you had a great wedding and honeymoon. You CAN live well on this diet, and healthy is the best way for you to start your new life together! Gluten free cooking can be an interesting adventure; I made wonderful chocolate chip muffins for my family for breakfast today and my gluten-eaters LOVED them.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The following link might be helpful for others experiencing simlar psychosomatic issues with doctors. Although it's only for psychiatrists, I think it should be for all doctors! http://www.psychsearch.net/complaints/ The neuropsychiatrist I saw might fall into this category? I can checkmark:

       Falsified medical records
       No Biological Test for "Mental Illness" (no blood, urine or other lab testing)
       Breach of Confidentiality (...if she sends my medical records to my doctor or discusses them with him. I am requesting a copy of my records from this doctor t see if she sent anything to him.)
       Physical Illness Misdiagnosed as "Mental Illness"
       I was told I have a "chemical imbalance" (without any lab tests)
       Unethical Conduct
       Unprofessional conduct
       Something else that didn't seem quite right  
    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The office is located in another city than where I go. There is no receptionist at the location closest to me meaning patients wait for the doctor to open her closed door to call their names for a consult. So, I would have to knock on her door which would really make her say that I'm sick since I keep writing letters AND showing up in person. The main office is too far for me to travel with road construction going on for the remainder of the year. I suppose I could mail the letter instead. But the staff is very irresponsible so it might be thrown away. The doctor probably told them that nothing needed correction in my records so ignore further requests from me. The other staff member I dealt with seemed normal, but I complained to the doctor about the staff member I dealt with today when she failed to update my phone number that I gave to her a few times (and which she said she updated), which resulted in me showing up for an appointment (I traveled a distance) one of the testers thought she canceled by leaving voicemail for phone number I no longer had. What I mean is I told the doctor that the staff member said she updated my phone number when the doctor asked me why I was there when I showed up for that cancelled appointment. Unfortunately, this staff member answers the phone most of the time. I'm sure she did what she could to make me look bad to the doctor to make her look good because I complained about her. I feel like scheduling an appointment with a psychologist to tell her what happened with this name calling. I'm sure it's against therapist code or I'd like a psychologist's feedback on this doctor's behavior. There are other patient complaints about her on the Internet how she laughs at patient's pain and suffering. I feel that's how she treated me. Update: The staff member called me back to tell me the doctor amended my report and she put it in the mail. I wonder if the doctor discussed what she said to me with another doctor who told her what she did was unacceptable in the medical field. I am hoping my report is amended or new negative comments are not added by the doctor to say I keep writing her letters or something in that regard.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The letter I am suggesting has nothing to do with the doctor.  I would type it and walk it to the desk when are in the building for your other appointment. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thanks. I'm not sure if the doctor will read another email I send and that's the way I'm told by staff to contact her. It will just confirm that I keep writing her letters although I only sent her one email about it! I already told the staff and her that I didn't want my medical records sent to any doctor's office, but I don't know if they will do it out of spite. It was scary talking to this doctor because she wouldn't listen or let me get a word in...I guess that's the reason why I feel the need to raise my voice at this office. When I requested a Lyme disease prescription from another doctor years ago before I knew I had celiac disease, this ignorant doctor told me not to come back to his office because there's no such thing as Lyme disease so only crazy people think they have it. I thought that was the worst experience I had with a doctor, but this experience was worse. I mean this neuropsychiatrist kept calling me a sick person over and over. It's so scary dealing with doctors like this. I really don't know how many other doctors may have wrote in my records that my symptoms are all in my head because celiac disease isn't real.   And my neurologist said this neuropsychiatrist was great. Maybe he says that about all the doctors he refers to patients to? I don't know if you call her personality psychopath since she appeared really nice during my consult, but she was thinking all this negative s*** in her mind at the time or different than she appeared to be.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
