Okay so long story short after going gluten-free I noticed a lactose intolerance then I noticed an egg intolerance. Learning about my food after going gluten-free I saw too many videos on animal cruelty and gave up meat. So a little over a year ago I claimed the mantle of Vegan. I added a ton of Vegan friends and groups on FB. Well now I can have dairy and egg again. I totally understand Vegan's but at the same time 1) It's just so hard to find Vegan gluten-free food when socializing with non-gluten-free non-vegans. 2) I firmly believe if the world became a Vegetarian Utopia the dairy and egg industry would take care of itself and there would be tons of dairy and egg alternatives everywhere.

So why I need your opinions.....what do I do in regards to all my Vegan friends? Do I delete the groups and leave all the friends and wait for the post where I say something that isn't Vegan? Do I post in one of the groups why I'm removing myself? Do I delete the folks I don't talk to regularly and send the others a group message explained I'm no longer Vegan and if that bothers them they need to delete me?

I wouldn't be so concerned (maybe) but I posted a month or so back asking what exactly ethically gathered wool meant and I had a few folks really angry at me for even asking. Also I've seen a few folks on the war path about the Hobbit and I fully intend to go see it! (Some of the animals used in filming were accidentally hurt because the farm they were kept on had too many hills and holes etc.) I am sadden by those animals being harmed or even dying because the land was treacherous but I don't think for a moment it was done to be cruel and that right there is enough to earn me the wrath of a lot of Vegans. :(

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
