Just for a moment imagine you were the healthy one and you heard or saw these things:

I accidentally licked an envelope, charged to the bathroom with my tongue out. Rinsed my tongue. Then I spent two days with fatigue.

Would you believe that?

I was in the same room where someone was using barley flour. I irritably complained that it made me dizzy and swollen.

Would you believe that?

I caught a wiff of vinegar and got dizzy, nauseated, and felt weak.

Yeah, right. Would you believe that? Doesn't it sound strange?

I planted the barley, which I could no longer mill and eat, in the garden for cover crop. Now each time I weed the garden my arms come in full of allergic rash.



Be honest would you believe this stuff?

Envelope glue does not contain gluten. It is one of those myths spread on the internet.

My family has seen my many reactions. It's hard to understand, but reactions are real.
Things we used to do and not suffer from are suddenly making us very ill. I can't believe it myself sometimes! :o
It seems like some bad dream that we can't wake up from.

How about the avoiding kisses? Constant counter/stove wiping, hand washing, label reading(of eveythng!), wanting your own tv remote because the other one has orange Cheetos dust on it? :lol:

Cheezit dust at my house! The ceiling fan remote has a strangely familiar orange stain on it.

The envelopes may not have gluten in the glue, but we all know from watching Seinfeld they aren't safe to lick. A sponge is safer and and easier too.

gluten-free with celiac is very different from other people though. They don't have to read labels on everything they eat, or be careful of what restaurant they eat at, or avoid minute bits of gluten in their home etc. Shoot, they don't have to be careful of what kind of beer they drink for that matter.

I think at first it is easy to be maybe a little too concerned with possible gluten contamination, but that is a good thing when learning about avoiding it for the first time. It helps keep people alert to the possibiltiy of gluten being around. So they probalby do a better job of avoiding it. And when people are new to the gluten-free diet, they often have reactions to many foods because their GI system is in a state of change/healing. So it may seem like they are being glutened when it is perhaps a bit of adjustment turmoil. Not that hat is pleasant or easy to deal with or anything. It can be tough.

Lol I lick my own envelopes, but I will slobber all over every finger on my hands just to spread it on the strip! EWww yucky! Maybe I should wear gloves when opening mail :unsure: you know just in case other people think like me...And yet I am such a germaphobe I wash my hands every time I touch anything in the kitchen for example. Only makes cooking gluten free in a gluten filled house even slower.

Does anyone else wash their hands after each cracked egg? Just wondering

Yep and with any ingredient change in the recipe and when I first get home and before I start cooking and when I am done. For me it doesn't have anything to do with gluten though as that was how my Mom taught me to cook.

I know that it's outrageous and crazy, but I won't shake hands with anyone or touch anything at church before the sacrament. If I'm going to touch something that is going in my mouth, I wash my hands then touch NOTHING. Everyone at church probably things I'm just a little bit nuts. :lol:

Speaking of the source of that, I had a real-life "can you spare a square?" thing happen to me while in an airport bathroom. The woman in the next stall asked, "Do you have a square to spare?" I said, "No. I have no square to spare." But I really did. We went on and on. We had no idea who each other was but it was amusing to us as well as others who were sniggering in the bathroom. :)

Sorry - nothing to do with the topic at hand. :rolleyes:
