I think every celiac should carry, not just an emergency medical card, but a card called a "UDUMB" card. This stands for "U Dont Understand My Body" card. This card should have answers to frequently asked questions and comments that people make. It will make life simpler for every celiac and gluten intolerant. These cards should be highly customizable.

I think with all the times people ask me whats wrong with me and why I am not involved in activities like I once was or why I act like everyone' s food is poison, Mine would read:

1. You dont need a doctor to tell you chili gives you heartburn so why do I need a doctor to tell me gluten makes me ill?

2. I am not fat I just have a wheat belly.

3. I am not picky; it is just my immune system that is.

4. If celiac were contagious, one in every 130 americans would be in quarantine.

5. No there is not a beano pill for gluten.

:lol:

What would yours say?

1. No, I am NOT making this up.

2. Yes, as a matter of fact, it DOES hurt.

3. If just the smell of peanuts can kill someone with a peanut allergy, why do you insist that a couple of gluten crumbs won't hurt me, a Celiac?

3. No, Celiac is not something one gets over eventually.

4. Yes, when it comes down to hurting your feelings because I can't eat your food, or being sick for weeks, your feelings are going to lose every time.

5. Have you been to Celiac.com? I think you need to go there and read because it sure sounds to ME like you too have Celiac.

In addition to what has been mentioned, mine would say, Of couse I am lucky to have celiac in order to lose weight! Lucky, lucky, lucky me to have chosen this disease. <_< And no, I cannot have just one piece of cake.

Mine would say:

(1) No, you don't wish you could lose weight like I did, I almost died and can't you SEE this balding head?

(2) Celiac ain't for sissies and you can't handle it.

(3)Gluten is my kryptonite. So, no I can't have "just a little."

(4) Maybe I don't look so bad now, but you should feel it from IN HERE.

(5) I'm sorry, but your "tummy ache" does not make you understand AT ALL what I've been through.

(6) Pain? You are having some pain? I zoomed past pain and went straight to "Just kill me now" a long time ago.

(7) Yes, all your symptoms sound like a gluten issue. That will be $150. please.

(8) Honey, you might as well have Celiac written across your forehead. Here is my doctor's phone number. Call him.

(9) No, I don't miss gluteny bread. No I don't miss gluteny bagels. No, I don't miss gluteny donuts. WHY, you ask? Because I don't miss feeling like sh*t every day of my life.

(10) I have Celiac, not leprosy; you don't have to avoid me.

(11) If you could walk in my shoes for just one week, you would know why this is no easy road. You would know why I am a warrior princess.

(12) and this one, courtesy of my pal, the Sassy Celiactivist ( of "friends" who are not there for us anymore ) :

“If you can’t handle me at my worst, then you don’t deserve me at my best”.

:)

1. No, you can't kill gluten by cooking it.

2. You can eat rice if you have celiac.

3. You don't have IBS, you have celiac, but you seem to also lack the ability to accept that.

4. Please don't feel sorry for me because I don't eat gluten, feel sorry for yourself because you can't imagine your life without it.

5. I'm tired because I haven't been fed for 20 years, so don't talk to me about will-power. I have more of that than 10 of you (deadbreadheads) put together.

6. I wish there was a machine that would allow others to feel what I'm feeling. Then I wouldn't have to explain my symptoms to walls every day.

How about this one:

Just because I can't eat what you do doesn't mean I can't have a social life. So if you were thinking about NOT inviting me to your party, please think again.

When you just simply can't hold your tongue :P

Riding the hospital elevator with a doctor, another doctor gets on and they start discussing first doc's leg and back problems.

First doc: "I'm trying to stay away from doctors."

Me (blurting): "I don't blame you.!! :lol:

When people tell me they would just DIE without their bread, I tell them I would just die WITH their bread.

Oh, and my favorite, "I wouldn't have any willpower, I would have to just suffer." Well, I guess you've never actually suffered, have you? No, childbirth doesn't count. Childbirth ENDS.

Oh,m I assume it is true for you, just not me.

I miss foods that make me sick. No joke. I really have a problem I know! :lol: :lol:

Oh... esply sugary stuff... wow, I could binge RIGHT NOW on [insert any bad food here], knowing that I will be puking within 2 hours if I am lucky, potentially in the hospital is more realistic. :P

Back on topic for this thread... my "card" would simple say something like..

My son, My wife, and I are all currently training for our black belts and see any attempt to give my son gluten as a personal threat to his life. Therefor we will react with all necessary force to prevent it. If that is not clear, picture my boot slamming into your nose, at high velocity.

Its a bit long though, so I guess I will trim it.

Got Gluten for my son? Better have good insurance.

:D

Hahaha awesome!! And you're right! They obviously haven't suffered otherwise they'd have never uttered those words, and agreed, child birth doesn't count! I don't care how many times you've done it! ;)

    • Should I get tested for Celiac Disease?
      I'm glad you got the biopsy done & have a definitive answer! Welcome to the club you never wanted to be a member of but you will persevere & and flourish. 
    • Newbie: mother to coeliac kids
      You surely have a special family there. Hooray for your eldest son making sure his brother is safe. That's a huge reflection on the way you raised him mom. Good job! Your poor boy is probably going to feel icky for a while with that kind of damage. Also, for the first 6 mos. - a year, we can have ups & downs like being on a roller coaster. Some great days & then BOOM, you have a totally crappy day or 2 or 3. Well cooked everything for him. Mushy veggies, mushy cooked fruits, go very easy or not at all on spices for a while, keep up the bone broth, crock pot stews and soups. You're doing a great job Midwitch, it takes a while to get all the rules down and by that I mean besides the gluten free rules -- the tailored to the individual rules and they will change as he heals so you'll be adapting all along the way.  Once everyone is tested it might be easiest to take the household gluten free and the kids who can eat gluten can do so outside of the home. It sure does make things easier especially with your large crew and you a working single mom.
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      Clearly the doctors need to establish what is causing Villous atrophy.  My villious atrophy was caused by parasites. This also temporarily raised my Gliadin antibody IgA levels but normalised after treatment.   A celiac gene test might be helpful in ruling out Celiac.  
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Yes, you absolutely need to be tested for Celiac!  Sjogren's seems to be another close friend to Celiac, unfortunately, and if your SSA was positive, then you have Sjogren's. I have both diseases and found myself that my Sjogren's symptoms calmed down once I had been gluten-free for awhile.  I still have moderate symptoms but they were almost unbearable pre-Celiac diagnosis.  The fact that your symptoms greatly improved on the gluten-free diet speaks volumes and should be looked into. I am terribly sorry about your miscarriage. That has got to be so tough to deal with. Miscarriage is another problem that can occur with Celiac because of the vitamin deficiencies and other reasons.  It is very important for you to rule Celiac either in or out if you want to try and have children. Good luck and if you have any questions, feel free to ask away!
    • Blue Bell Ice Cream Recalls Mispackaged Rocky Road Pints
      Blue Bell Ice Cream Recalls Mispackaged Rocky Road Pints That Contain Cookies 'N Cream Ice Cream; Potential Allergy Concerns For Those With Wheat and Soy Allergies. Blue Bell Ice Cream is voluntarily recalling select lots of Rocky Road pints produced in its Brenham, Texas, plant because they may be mispackaged and actually contain Cookies 'n Cream Ice Cream. That ice cream contains the undeclared allergens soy and wheat, which may present a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction risk to people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy or wheat. The pints can be identified as a Rocky Road pint with a Cookies 'n Cream lid, and contain Cookies 'n Cream Ice Cream. They can also be identified by the following code located on the bottom of the pint: 022918576. http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm499122.htm?source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
