Seriously though, when I hear "lifestyle" what I hear is "hip" "trendy" and "choice." None of these apply to me. I am also most certainly not on a diet.

When people who have no freaking clue what the hell they are talking about bring it up to me it drives me up a wall. I'm thankful in those moments I only slap them silly in my head. It is the "diet" and "lifestyle" trend crap that brings this on and makes them think its okay to talk to me like they think they're smart or know something.



I was once ironically called "the trendiest person alive" .

and here, do this in your head, rather than hit anyone

You are a teensy bit grouchy sometimes, K,----- but it's what makes you so darn adorable.
You have a squishy soft marshmallow inside to that crunchy outer shell. :D


She basically described you as a smore, sans chocolate. Can you really blame anyone for wanting to bite your fingers off? Personally, I'd slather you in chocolate first but that is just a personal preference. Your lifestyle will soon not involve the forums because you won't be able to type unless you learn to do it with your nose. :lol:

Well, of course I meant she is covered in chocolate!....squishy marshmallow center, crunchy candy-coated outside DIPPED IN CHOCOLATE
geez, I thought that part was a given.

Capt. Crabby, I think part of this "lifestyle" --to use this word----means we are also whackadoodles.

And technically, I told Addy to "slap them inside her head"...not to really slap someone.
You know me.....I'm no fighter, I'm a lover.

These things keep getting creepier and creepier!

And yes, I'm the one hitting people. And I'm only imagining hitting them! I reserve it as response to things like "did you know Olive Garden has a gluten free menu?" Because if I actually have the money to go out to eat I'm going to go to a place that specializes in serving gluten and is a haven of cross contamination and will probably out of sheer stupidity bring me bread sticks just to see if they can actually make blood boil.

This happens in my head while I scream at them to shut up. (Also in my head.) I smile and nod actually and say that's nice, or yeah, I knew that.

Sorry Karen, but you may not survive the night. :lol:

My local supermarket placed the barley flour in the 'free from' section.

They looked surprised that it was not a healthy choice, and that barley is not so popular with us gluten-free ers.

Maybe if it has not moved I will show the the slapping icon. Or maybe that scary lover one. Whatever it takes to get that c#@ off my shelf.

I may have strayed off topic, I am not sure where we were headed...

- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!
- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol
- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

No worries, this "New School gluten free lifestyle" affords us the luxury of being wild, impetuous and insane terribly creative.

As the primary definition (not colloquial use) of diet is "food habitually consumed", I say diet. The same way, when I talk about my dog's (or, in the past, my bird's) diet, I'm not referring to a weight loss approach. Same way, when I tell my toddler, "a cow's diet consists primarily of hay" and I'm not referring to putting a cow on a diet. 'Cause I like using terms properly and all. :P
