In Topic: My Amusing Email Conversation With The Olive Garden

10 July 2013 - 07:48 AM

I agree with everything that has been said (I have a friend who goes with her boyfriend their on their fancy "date night" which is beyond my comprehension), but at least they do have gluten-free options. I work in the boonies and when I MUST go to a work lunch at least I can go there and eat something - I'd rather that than the awkwardness of refusing to go or just sitting and eating nothing, which I have had to do. I appreciate that they have made a few gluten-free options available - of course, it's our decision whether we go and eat them or not. [I just realized that I am basically echoing the most recent comment, which I apparently hadn't finished reading, but am posting anyway to second what she has said].

In Topic: Carlsbad gluten-free? We Are Going To Leggo Land.

29 January 2013 - 11:16 AM

We used to live there 9 years ago. But my dh wants to go back and take the kids to Leggo Land. Does anyone know of good gluten-free restaurants there or close by? Please share if you know of any. Thanks so much.

I just went to San Diego last week and did some research, including concerning Carlsbad restaurants. Unfortunately, this list does not break it down into areas and I was looking partially for a brunch place for adults, but it still might be helpful. Most of the places I looked for were between Carlsbad (to the north) and as far south as Hillcrest. Hope this helps a bit:

In Topic: Throwing Up As A Symptom Of Glutening?

28 January 2013 - 07:33 AM

The last time I was glutened (only the 4th time in 10 years!) I began throwing up about 2 hours later. For the next 3 hours, I sat on the john and threw up countless times (I don't get why the stomach keeps trying to empty when it's obvious there's nothing left in there!) while the gluten did its best to get out of my body from both ends. My glutening was a careless mistake on my part and I'm super careful. I won't be as complacent again!!

Thanks for the replies. I am always so careful so it doesn't seem fair that the one time I don't check something out that should be fine, it isn't. But I guess if one moment of not being thorough results in throwing up in public, I will never assume a meal will be fine again!!! I'm quite sure that it was gluten and not the drink since (thank goodness) I haven't had a problem with wine so far.

In Topic: Does Anyone Else Only Throw Up A Few Hours After You Eat Gluten?

27 January 2013 - 06:40 AM

I got glutened at Carrabbas off of their gluten free menu (I suspect the cook put the grill sauce on my chicken)and I threw up half way through my meal! Wierd thing is, I was known for NEVER throwing up in my gluten eating life so now that I am gluten free I throw up when I get glutened. I think your body just says, "WHOA! I thought we got rid of this crap already! Let's get it out PRONTO!"

Thanks for this; it makes me feel better. I had Indian food last night, which is usually not a problem. I've been gluten-free for 6 years and have never thrown up, but I did last night after feeling very nauseated. It kind of freaked me out, but I guess my body just wanted to get rid of the gluten as you say. But I had D not long before I threw up, which IS normal for me after I've eaten gluten. I am so careful that maybe my body just reacts in this violent way now on the few occasions I ingest gluten...

In Topic: "seizure Like" After Eating Contaminated Foods

18 September 2012 - 04:21 PM

I haven't experienced anything like a seizure when exposed to gluten. However, I do sometimes have this very weird thing where I feel like my brain is tingling. It's hard to describe in any other way. It's a disturbing feeling and it doesn't go on for too long. It took me a while to connect to gluten, but now it's one way that I know if I've been cross contaminated. Good luck with feeling better. It's a hard road sometimes and I know it can be frustrating.
Take care,
