In Topic: Most Ridiculous Gluten Comment I've Heard

03 August 2014 - 06:56 PM

I had two doosies in the last couple of weeks, both from work. I had a colleague ask me if I could eat fruit salad (only had fruit in it, no toppings). Another situation: I had a supervisor (who has a MA) ask me if I could have white bread because she wasn't sure if it had wheat in it.

My worst symptoms aren't the digestive ones (though those do suck) they are my ones related to depression and anxiety and insomnia that happen when I get glutened. As the others have said, they can make these symptoms worse.

In Topic: Am I Too Sensitive?

15 March 2014 - 06:17 PM

Thank you everyone for your support. It helps to know that other people don't think I'm over sensitive. That has always been used to minimize how I'm feeling. It makes it hard to know if I'm over reacting. I hate having at share computers at work. Because I drive so much for work, I don't actually have my own computer at work, instead  it is a number of shared computers. Before I realized I was getting glutened when eating at the computers, it was really annoying.   I hate this all. I will have to figure this out. I have told them before about the teasing about my name, but every time they introduce a bunch of us to anyone new, they bring it up again. And then the celiac stuff whenever food comes up. Which sucks now because we are having a meeting once a week at dinner time.

In Topic: Boy Did I Throw The Hospital For A Loop!

08 March 2014 - 05:46 PM

I'm so glad you are home now. That sounds like an awful experience. I am terrified of having to go to the hospital and being admitted at some point. I don't have anyone who lives near me who understands what it means to be gluten free. I have friends, but no significant other and I live alone. I better stay healthy and not end up in the hospital.

In Topic: Waiting For Reaction.

I am outside my regular reaction  time. So I'm going to assume that the processing got rid of the gluten. The bag that I had only said that the syrup was made from wheat (didn't give corn as an option.) But I feel like I got safe by  the skin of my teeth. A good reminder to always check labels.
