Yesterday I saw this bumper sticker: "Only speeding cause I have to poop!" It showed a poop picture too...I really had to laugh...since I've actually had to speed really fast one time before being diagnosed...because I had to poop!! It's healthy to laugh. :)

Before (and now after a couple times when I get cc'ed) I have had to rush to get home. The problem is that before I got diagnosed I traveled strictly by subway. And you can't make those go any faster. They really should be required to have bathrooms at all subway stations. When things were really bad before diagnosis and I had days where I got D I would take cabs home from work for fear of the subway breaking down and not being able to get off and find a bathroom.

Haha, I need to get one for my husband! He has no diagnosed issues, just has a sensitive stomach to greasy foods. I am pretty sure he has played the speeding game several times!

Hilarious!! Before I was dx'ed, I actually developed agoraphobia because of an intense fear that I would have to poo and I wouldn't find a bathroom in time. We didn't eat out for 2 years (it usually hit me after a meal)!

Anyway, I found the bumper sticker online....

But if you're out walking the dog you can't speed :huh: I actually went tp someone's door, asked if I could tie my dog to her fence post and use the bathroom because I was not going to make it home. I think she was afraid it was a home invasion or something but the desperate look on my face must hve convinced her. :lol:

Before DX, I had a few such emergencies. Many times, I found myself with my key in the lock, praying I would get inside fast enough. :unsure:

When I was still teaching, I had to leave the room a few times, using the guise of "Break into groups and discuss (fill in the blank)..."

And the absolute worse case scenario arose twice:

We only have one bathroom. Occupied.

Hmm...omygosh, whatamIgonna do????....think think.... :unsure:

A lined wastebasket. :ph34r:

and the ever-popular--

Outside (fortunately we live in the remote countryside....) :rolleyes:

Cannot tell you how happy I am to no longer suffer such indignities. :)

That is so great! Many times I have wondered if I could get out of a speeding ticket if I got pulled over during those times. Then again the true fear of getting pulled over was the delay, not so much the ticket.

    • Are you vegan or vegetarian?   I am concerned about your lack of protein and fats in your diet.  These diets can work when you are also gluten free, but as a celiac you can be malnourished.  It is hard to heal when you are slowly starving yourself.   No offense, but some newly diagnosed celiacs end up with food disorders.  Perhaps working with a dietician can help.   What actually are your blood glucose levels?  Did you know that just as Hashimoto's is common with celiacs, so is type 1 diabetes?   Ask your doctor for antibodies testing for Type 1 diabetes (TD1), if your blood glucose levels are not in the normal  range.  You can develop TD1 (LADA) at anytime.   For adults there is a "honeymoon" period which can last for up to five years.  Be on the watch for other AI issues (besides TD1) too.   It is so important to monitor your health after a celiac disease diagnosis!  
    • He was not IGA deficient.  I'm still hoping we can convince the base GI to approve his referral.   Thanks for that thread about TTG Igg.  That's exactly what I was wondering. 
    • Star Anise Foods  rice paper and spring rolls are gluten free they have brown and white rice versions. I have not had issues with these in the past when I used to use them. Should be able to find them on amazon.
    • Hi strawberrymoon, If you are having a blood sugar problem, that can cause nerve damage and tingling.  Nerve damage is often associated with diabetes.  You can ask your doctor to check your A1C level to get an idea how it has been doing. It would probably help your glucose levels to stick with a paleo style diet, avoiding most carbs.  Carbs and meats have a different affect on blood glucose.  Carbs tend to spike blood glucose while meats even it out. There are a lot of negative changes that can happen with high blood glucose.  It is wise to try and get it under control ASAP.  My brother has lost most of his vision in one eye now from high blood glucose.  And he has the tingling symptoms you described.  The tingling can progress to pain in time.  My brother chose to ignore his diabetes and is paying the price for it.  He is doing better at it now but the damage is done. Yes, B-12 deficiency can cause those kind of nerve symptoms.  But if you have high blood sugar that is the more common cause.   Diabetes is not a rare condition.
    • I have been living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, for two years, and finding gluten-free food is proving more difficult than I thought, even if I am cooking my own food. Wheat flour, called "bot mi" in Vietnamese, seems to creep into a lot of stuff nowadays. What's more, manufacturers do not feel it is important to list bot mi in the ingredients on a food's packaging unless it is a principle ingredient in the food. In other words, soy sauces or wraps with just a tiny bit of wheat flour added to add a touch of thickness or pliability are not guaranteed to list the ingredient. For some genetic reason, Vietnamese people are not nearly as susceptible to food allergies as Westerners - it probably has something to do with exposure to less hygenic foodstuffs having built up an immunity over hundreds of years - so it is not really considered important to split hairs in that department over here. Anyway, I love rice paper but have often gotten glutened by it when I have it. Can any celiac who could tell if a product had gluten by more than just the ingredient list on the back let me know a definitively gluten-free rice paper brand? I know that very few rice paper brands actually list wheat flour in the ingredients, but I don't 100% trust the ingredients list for products made by Vietnamese companies. Call me paranoid. By the way, I have a neurological condition that irreversably breaks down my immune system when I ingest gluten, so I don't want to experiment with trial by fire here.
