I broke down and had a pity party today. I'm sick with a cold thanks to body unable to fight it off due to the 60mg/day prednisone due to allergic reaction (poss. Wheat). On the way home from work, I just felt Soooo bad and wanted comfort food (I.e. kids cheeseburger meal-fast food). I cried, but didn't stop, came home and took a nap. Today was just so hard, then DH is nice enough to tell me he got him something from there. Uggh men!

We all have the occasional pity party. I've been known to have some pretty epicly bad moments myself. Seriously though, what business did he really have going out for fast food when if he had any sense at all he would have read your mind and known you were having a bad day craving it? I swear, men never learn. And then they wonder why we're grumpy. :P

I think you should pat yourself on the back for not getting really mean.

Too true! I think you deserve a medal for not bludgeoning him. :wub:

One thing about pity parties is...they do not last very long when there aren't many guests. :D

Hope you feel better soon!!

If I were you, I'd have a go at a carton of Haagen Das ice cream (if you can eat it ?)

and not share a single spoonful with Mr. Wisearse.

Misdiagnosed for 25+ years; finally DXed on 11/01/10. I figured it out myself. Double DQ2 genes. This thing tried to kill me. I view Celiac as a fire breathing dragon --and I have run my sword right through his throat.

If you can't have ice cream, sorbet is always a great option! I indulge frequently, and have the hips to prove it. :ph34r: I've been tempted a few times to try ice cream substitutes but I don't want something that pretends to be something it isn't, which is why I go for sorbet. It is what it is, and doesn't lie to me about it. Perfect for pity parties!

So once upon a time there was a woman whom had successfully removed gluten from her family's life -- yet one person in particular would still crunch and munch on WHEAT THINS in front of this Princess (yes....now she is Royal and said Toad was crunching her former favorite snack cracker).

This was a Princess that loved to bake so she made a sinful chocolate-dark chocolate chip cake with fudge candy topping and set in the center of the dinning room table -- oh on top of the cake in sparkly green frosting "Lisa's Treat - DO NOT TOUCH"

Moral of the story -- the Toad and the Tadpoles of the house no longer crunch without checking this Princess's mood!

Seriously -- it gets better -- but on the bad days our loved ones should tiptoe thru gluten gardens.

Hang in there :)
