I have to say I have been really lucky at work. Sometimes they forget, but for my birthday they got me one of those fruit flower bouquet things so I could eat for my own birthday celebration!!

In Topic: How To Do This Without Feeling Like A Freak

I find that people don't really understand exactly what I am going through until they hae seen me during a reaction. Not that you want to purposely do that to yourself. My parents don't always get it either. The other day I stopped by for dinner and my dad was like oh I made stuffed zucchinni and it only has bread crumb on top so you can just pick it off. Well of course it doesn't jsut stay on top so i was washing off a piece of plain zucchini. And he says oh its only a little it shouldn't bea big deal. But I just ate mine plain and it was fine.

I tend to spend a lot of time at my boyfriend's parents house when we visit, and so they have seen me at my sickest and understand what happens when I eat even a little bit of gluten. I usually find out what we are having before hand and just get gluten free things to make alongside if necessary (pasta usually). There is always ice cream in the house in case I want dessert.

The thing that I find hardest is eating out especially at a party or buffet type of setting. How does everyone deal with this kind of party? CC is almost impossible to avoid.

In Topic: What Types Of Reactions Do You Get When You're Glutened?

Glutina, I also get the pregnant look when I eat gluten. D, C, nausea, dizziness, extreme fatigue, headaches, migranes, acne, bruising, bloating, depression (mild), cranky, muscle cramps. I have been on and off gluten for about 9 months now after trying a lo carb die and feeling amazing, then eating a piece of bread and blowing up with severe bloating. Started doing celiac research and had two blood tests. Both came back negative. Going gluten free again.
