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:

    • 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.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
