Info:

1. My family is a mix of me, my son, my boyfriend, his daughter, Jared the cat, and really happy fish the fish.....names kids come up for animals :P All gluten eaters thus far.

2. I work 40 hrs a week as a cook at the hospital

3. It's 3 o clock in the morning

4. I got glutened yesterday from a dang Reese's!

So I work a lot at very strenuous job and get to watch people eating all kinds of food I can't eat everyday. I'm over that pretty much. After having a very stressful week with the kids yesterday was my day off and I only had one kid with me so I thought hey I'll have a Reese's and relax today. Heck no! Got glutened and was sick all day! Now I'm up at three o clock in the morning with my dh itching like crazy and can't sleep!!! Outside smoking a cigarette as I write this and thinking about my mom always telling me how bad they are for me.....I know they're bad the whole world knows they're bad! But right now I feel like I can't quit cause I've given up everything for my children and now delicious foods! Sometimes I feel like I want to throw y body I the trash! This disease is so dang hard sometimes!!!!

As I'm reading this I feel sort of ashamed.. :(

Don't get me wrong I LOVE LOVE being a mom and love my family very much just need to get it out to people who understand so well :(

Hopefully u don't all think I'm a terrible person <_<

Sorry you are having a bad time right now, hon!

((hug)) No one thinks you are a terrible person for letting off steam--not at all.

We get to vent on here!! :)

Reese's cups are gluten free.

Your symptoms are not coming from that. Your DH may be flaring from other causes. You might want to look at the threads under DH for some ideas?

You mention you work in food service.....and live with gluten eaters (even the fish probably have gluteny food.)

Those factors are the more likely sources of cross contamination.

Hopefully, your symptoms will subside soon. I know how hard it is to deal with all this.

And yes, you really should quit smoking as it serves no purpose for you to work so hard to get healthy and damage your lungs and heart in the meantime.

But I won't bug you about that too much (nothing worse than an ex-smoker preaching to you! :) ) You will quit when you're ready. One thing at a time.

Hang in there. Hope you feel better soon!

(((hugs))) It sounds like you're really having a tough time right now? I've heard that the holiday PB cups may have gluten cc. Is that what you ate?

It must be awfully hard to work around food and not eat it? Are you sure something didn't "get you" at work? Sometimes symptoms are delayed.

Just trying to help you think..so whatever it was dosn't getcha again.

I'm an ex-smoker so I understand the stress of quitting. I also understand your feelings of being deprived of things..and smoking is just one more thing to add to the list. However, once you've settled into the diet and feeling more sure of yourself..you really should try. :D You knew somebody was gonna nag you on that right? :D LOL

I'm sorry you are feeling bad. As we all told you on your thread about Reeses, they are gluten free. Its possible something else got you - like work or the gluten eaters in your home. Sometimes we can't ever exactly trace the source. Just some crumbs you didn't see, someone used your Peanut butter by mistake, etc.

I think you should continue smoking. A year from now, when you have the gluten thing figured out at your home & work, then you work on quiting.

Have you read the DH threads? Many people say iodine agravates it, especially in the beginning. Alos, some find a little relief with ointments that have a numbing agent in them or Ora-gel (for toothaches) which has the numbing stuff in it.

:D:):lol: you guys are all so amazing! I don't know what I would do without having this place to vent. Today so far is going much better! The itchies have settled down and I'm watching a movie with my little one. Thanks for the hugs :D here's a hug back to all of you!

Sorry you are having a bad day. I hope tomorrow is better. As someone else said, Reeses are gluten free but they do have other triggers in then. So something else in the Reeses could have set off the attack.

I am a smoker too. Right now while I am getting a handle on the gluten free and trying to figure out what else might be causing problems, I am waiting to try and quit. I am tackling one thing at a time.

    • Back to Dr. Google for you!   A histamine intolerance is not a true IGE mediated allergic reaction.  Read up!  It does often (like many intolerances) occur with celiac disease because the small intestine is damaged.  It can resolve once the gut has healed.   celiac disease antibodies can take time to build up (in your blood stream for the test or skin).   That's why the gluten challenge is 8 to 12 weeks.  In the case of DH, you can eat something and days or weeks later, the DH rash will appear and you'll go crazy trying to figure out when you got "glutened" (but don't take any serious gluten advice from me because I don't have it).   You can have several things wrong with you and a wheat allergy and celiac disease can occur at the same time.  Add on something like Mast Cell Activation, Autoimmune Hives, Histamine Intolerance.......the list can be endless (at least that is how some of us feel.)  Of course your high school could be making you ill.  Think of all that stress!  Who knows what lurks in your building, but let's face it, you ate some gluten.  Best of luck to you on your challenge!  
    • Hi, I need help understanding these results please. Can anyone help me.  DQ2.5 (HLA1*05 DQB1*0201 AND OTHER NON-RISK ALLELES CATEGORY# 4 DQ GENOTYPE: DQ2 HETEROZYGEOUS INCREASED RISK: 10X RELATIVE RISK: HIGH My doctor is out on vacation from now until the end of August and I couldn't get an appointment until the end of September.  
    • Ugh!  So, you have early stages of celiac disease and that was after being gluten light?  It is a shame that your doctor is not comfortable about giving you a formal diagnosis because you don't have enough damage!  Time for a new GI.  You can also as for another pathologist to read your biopsies, but seriously....... Have a conversation with your current doctor about the reasons why he is hesitating.  He would rather you continue to become more ill or improve your health?   Are you going to be scarred for life with a celiac disease diagnosis? Maybe he is one of those people who think it is impossible to live with wheat, rye or barley!   I don't get it! 
    • Thanks for the comments. With Dr. Google, I have seen mast cell disorder pop up.  It seems like I need to eliminate some basics before heading in that direction. So, another question...is it possible that symptoms of celiac need time to "build up" over time? For instance,  I started reintroducing gluten and coffee last week to prepare for my GI appt.  However, nothing really seemed to happen except a little knee crankyness (which I can easily attribute to hiking).  Yet, yesterday I had a huge bagel at work, had itchy forearms, and then had two huge hives appear later.  Today, I had another bagel and in a few hours I had a few red fingers that were itchy and numb feeling in the tips.   I know histamine intolerance is a possibility, but wouldn't that show up as an extremely large hive with my allergy skin test? Also, I had to go into work today and yesterday. I'm wondering if that environment could contribute to the issue (I'm a high school teacher).
