Balance And Falling

Looks like Sherry Lynn's may well have been the first, but others have sprung up. That's awesome!

Just to clarify: Sherry's is not just a bakery. They offer full meals, baked goods and products. Her equipment was all new, never used in a restaurant before. Pristine :lol: No one can bring any food or beverages in--not even the employees. :) No CC here!!

I started looking at the links you provided--thanks.

The one in Colorado (yum)and the one on Cape Cod (YUM again--and I could get to that one, at least!) sure appear to be totally gluten-free full menus restaurants!?

Thanks for posting, Joe.

Hello there

Don't know if i'm too late too reply to this thread or not - not really used to this posting lark or using a forum.

However, was interested to read this as I too have balance issues. Haven't fallen or anything but before gluten free or when cc'd or of course, fallen off the waggon slightly (still learning and occasionally struggling) I get a bit off balance. Very similar to being under alcohol influence! Tends to go hand in hand with being very spaced out so must be a brain issue. I also think bread bakeries affect this too.

As for restaurants - we sometimes go to one my son works for so they are kindly very careful for me but I still get glutened every time :unsure: think it's the flour, etc in the kitchen - that little!!

Apologies in advance if I'm doing anything wrong with the post.

What a great conversation. It's nice to have people to relate to! So many "atypical" issues here that are simply "just" Celiac. I feel like I'm always looking for more answers to fix my fatigue, aches, brain fog... I will continue to do so, but more than likely what I need is time-time to eat good, nutrious food. Time to rest. Time to understand my body and know that "more exercise to get in shape" isn't always the right answer! Some days I can only walk a few minutes at a time. Others more than an hour!

Last night I was teaching/directing my Tuesday night music group (adults)... There was a point in time (happens periodically!) when I just couldn't make my mouth say what my brain wanted it to! Fortunately, they've seen it before and we can generally just laugh about it. It's like oral ataxia...my tongue and lips just can't quite get their balance. :) (yes, I just made that up!) It's funny because most of them are at least twice my age, yet we have many of the same body-is-betraying-me type of experiences. In my case, however, I'm VERY hopeful that it is a temporary condition. What a painstakingly slow process recovery is for some of us!

And on that thought... Never ask the universe for patience. It just may give you the "opportunity" to develop it.

Cheers.

:D:D:D

I often say patience is the only good thing that came out of my years of illness.

I had the speech problem also. I used to be a chef and I had helpers that were suppposed to do my pulls for orders. By the time I could actually ask for what I needed I could pull it myself three times. I couldn't even tell you what a fork was if you held it up in front me. I am so glad that did resolve for the most part after I had been gluten free for a while.

Truer words were never spoken!!! I was always patient with students, children, the elderly....but after all I have faced in the last 5 years, I have the patience of a saint now.

I have a PhD in patience. I have a gold medal in patience...ok, you get it. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
