hmm, IH wonders.....does this mean that her baby "isn't real" either?? :D

Or is it more "real" because it came from a freezer?

:blink: :blink: OK, this line of conversation has to stop. :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r:

When I read the thread title, I immediately thought that they were referring to your celiac as not being real. THAT would have riled me up.

However, if they were simply commenting on your lunch, I think you have been given enough good responses above, especially the one about the calories not being real, either. Personally, I might have responded "Oh, but it is a most delicious hallucination!"

I read it at first as " but yours aren't real". I thought they were referring to bust enhancement and wondered what that had to do with Celiac. :D

People just say stupid things. It's what they do. Listen to politicians if you don't believe me. You can always say something stupid right back at them. Or be polite and start a conversation about the food and help them understand a little better.

I wonder if you are eating a lot of processed gluten-free foods though? If so you might have a small gluten reaction going on and that might affect your feelings. I think Amy's food is somewhat questionable myself, and never eat it. I know other people like it just fine, I only tried it once years ago and had a reaction so won't try it again. I may have reacted to something else besides gluten, it's been so long I don't remember what it even was I ate. I have plenty of other intolerances besides gluten after all. It could have been the soy got me.

I guess in one respect I'm very lucky. I work in a building with two other celiacs and so it's no big deal to anyone at this point.

Now the first time I attempted to go out with a group of girlfriends I had already eaten at home. When the server took our order I told her I was just going to be having a vodka cranberry cocktail and one of my friends piped up, "she was a disease that makes her allergic to eating food". Fortunately I was with two other friends, one who has thyroid disease and the othe fibro and we all just rolled our eyes because she thinks we are all nuts (which is ok because we know she's crazy). :D I'm pretty sure the waitress just figured I was trying to diet or something. If this had happened at work though, I think I would have been really irritated.

It's funny, cause little jokes like that make me feel better! I also have always had a tendency to feel more comfortable in the presence of "humor."

I got a new job position just as I was going gluten-free and I'm in a completely new building with completely different people now. I've chosen so far to keep my gluten-freeness (I know that's not a real term, but oh well) to myself. I just don't want people to make a big deal of it, or think I'm making a big deal of it.

I find that humor is healing, hon--even when things are not so very funny (like when I was very ill.) ;)

I think "gluten-freeness" is a fabulous term! I shall use it liberally--giving you the credit for coining the term, of course.

May I?

Feel free to use my "my life in Gluten-Head Hell***" phrase, but I hold the copyright. :lol: :lol:

:D I can't even imagine being pencil thin and living on vodka but the image made me laugh really hard and I need all the laughs I can get.

I figure if you laugh really hard at least once a day, (I mean the almost wee your pants kind of laugh) then, that is a good day indeed. ;)

Cheers, IH

Yes, it is so reassuring to have other members from our planet to hang with, isn't it? Makes that giant blazing neon C on our foreheads feel less obvious when we are inter-mingled with the WEEs (wheat- eating Earthlings.)

I sometimes cover mine with a decorative bandana. But when I firmly refuse breaded chicken fingers, I give myself away. Fingers point, whispers start----and I am "outed". She's one of "them" (gasp)

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
