I swear if anybody in myhouse eats my food one more time I am gonna go to the store and buy my own refregerator, nuwave cooktop and nuwave oven. I will fix all my stuff in my room. They just don't care but them eating my food means there is a day I go without supper. I can't just go to a snack machine or just fix a microwave dinner. All my food is budgeted. They know it makes me sick if I eat something else,m they just don't care. I have to work to pay for my food and one day I cave in because I am starving and weak and running on fumes at work, means I spend the next week ill.

Am I the only one who sometimes feels as if the people who are supposed to love you the most don't care if they make you ill? On top of this, one of the very few people in my life who listens and cares about me just died in a car accident and I am beginning to feel that I wish it were me instead. Of her. This suffering seems endless and a lost cause. I am on a rollercoaster of anger, hurt, depression and I don't know how long I can hold onto hope :'(

I am sorry for the loss of your friend :( Some people are very special and make such a difference in our lives. Hang in there, and don't let the grieving get you down too far.

Family can be very thoughtless and inconsiderate. Try to be rational with them rather than angry, if you can. Print our your post here and give it to them, so that they can understand in a moment of reflection what they are doing to you and how bad it makes you feel. Chin up a bit, Razzle, you can do this !!

Awww ((((hugs)))) hang in there! Losing a friend is always a terrible thing, but we're all glad to still have you here. :wub:

You aren't the only one to get mad, or upset about stuff like that. I about blew my top this evening when I found a bunch of my stuff in the "deli" drawer of the fridge. You know... the one everyone else in the house gets into while handling bread. But eating my stuff? I'd lose it. You're right, we don't have options. I try to talk to people about things like this when I'm not mad, that way I don't freak out and make them not listen to me. It is possible that they just don't realize they are being inconsiderate jerks. Of course, you need to be all PC and not actually use those words when you talk to them, no matter how appealing. :P

Thanks to the both of you for your encouragement. Tried to post sooner but had problems with replying so I gave up. My brother is psycho...literally. He has gone crazy and there is no talking to him. It is like talking to a drunk. If i get stern he could fly off the handle and punch a hole in the wall or who knows what. Not being able to assert myself with someone who is very selfish and egocentric leaves me feeling trapped. Yesterday I came home and my coconut milk is completely empty because he drank all their milk then mine. He makes excuses and says he doesnt know whats mine. Really?! when in our entire life has mom ever bougt coconut milk or anything besides dairy? When has she bought brown eggs? When has mom ever made burgers out of turkey meat?

There is absolutely nothing I can do about it but it causes anxiety when I think about him messing with my stuff. I am a CNA and if i get glutened bad enough I dont want to lose my job because my stupid brother got into my crap as if there is not enough food in this house for him to eat. Hhh I am thinking about asking my aunt if I can move in with her because there is also mold all in this house making me ill

    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler.
