If you wear makeup you are going to have to check with the makeup companies to make sure that the makeup you are wearing is gluten free.  Also check out your soaps and conditioner and facial products, lotions etc.  Most of the information lines are only open 9-5. Check any over the counter medication that you take for gluten. Good Luck. 


In Topic: Halloween Celiac Stereotypes

I don't think it is funny. While we can see it as a comment on the larger aspects of society, kids with celiac (and other medical conditions) are bullied by other kids enough. They don't need to be made fun of by adults too. Even if it is social commentary. A kid who sees this isn't going to see the social commentary, just another thing that shows it is okay to make fund of kids with celiac.

Hi,

I just saw this thread. I have a number of issues. 

1) Trust: Being able to trust the restaurant that I want to eat at. That they aren't going to make me sick because they are doing stupid things. The one that blew me the way the most and has kept me from eating anything at their restaurant was when I went and they had their french fries on their gluten free menu (yay for me as I hadn't had french fries except ones I made in over 2 years) and when I was asking questions about them they said that while they had a dedicated gluten free fryer, when things got busy they would just throw everything in whatever fryer. But yet they had their french fries on their gluten free menu. 

 

2) Dessert. I want a yummy satisfying dessert that isn't ice cream. I love ice cream, but when everyone else can have cake and cookies and other nummy looking and smelling desserts and I'm left with ice cream, it makes me sad. 

 

3) Cinnamon rolls!!!! I have not had any good fluffy cinnamon rolls, I've tried Udi's and they just don't cut it though I love their muffins.. (I have cravings for Cinnabon cinnamon rolls). Everything is so dense across the board when it comes to baked goods. 

 

4) Being taken seriously.By wait staff and friends and the public in general. That we aren't asking questions to be obnoxious. That it isn't something to joke about. I want to be able to go out with my friends to eat and not have them feel uncomfortable because I can't eat with them.

I found I was getting glutened when I ate at shared computers at work. It forced me to take a break to actually eat lunch.

Thank you everyone. This is the first time I've had to deal with this as most people stopped giving me food once I was diagnosed. This relative being the exception.
