In Topic: Explaining Celiac To People Without Talking About Poop?

It does make me chuckle,sometimes, at how free we all are here in discussing a subject that most would never think to bring up outside this forum :o . Its nice to have a comfortable place to ask questions that we could not ask anywhere else. :)

When I don't want to go into a litany of woes, I simply say that the long-term consequences of gluten intolerance are vast and can, eventually, be deadly. But that the short-term effects of being glutened can be (here, I pause slightly for dramatic effect) "inconvenient". Believe me, EVERYBODY understands what I mean.

Brilliant! :D Thanks to the OP for asking this, I can't believe it never occurred to me. I think a worry-weight has been lifted off of my chest after reading these responses.

I'm amazed that so many people can get away with not having to explain the symptoms! As soon as I mention it, 4 out of 5 people ask "So, what happens when you eat it then?". 3 years in and I still don't have a good answer. It's not the most feminine or attractive thing to say "Well, I bloat up like I'm 8 months pregnant and have gas that would clear this room and have the bio-hazard team in here within seconds." :P I think the food poisoning comment is a great idea! I'll try that one out next time.

Not quite sure which types of cereal you prefer but the Chex cereals are fantastic and offer the more "adult" tates of rice and corn as well as the sugary flavors of cinnamon, chocolate, and honey nut. As well, Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Pebbles are gluten-free now, too.

Most of the gluten-free macaroni just don't seem to do the cheese sauce right. The last time we did it, I bought a box of Kraft, threw the noodles out, and used the sauce on some Quinoa elbows. Mmmmmm. Just like I remember it from childhood.

...that.. is THE most brilliant thing I have ever heard!! lol how did I not think of this?! Velveeta here I come!

So, this has made me feel really guilty because I'm pretty sure I am an exact mirror of your situation. I'm still having my gassy symptoms but I blame it on my addiction to chewing gum, regardless of the fact that it's not always consistant. I'm nearly 3 years in as well and have definitely become lax. I'm sorry that things have taken such a turn for you but thank you so much for posting. I think you've definitely helped me make up my mind to be more strict with my diets. I am not nearly as cautious as I should. May I ask - what foods did you discover weren't safe that you thought were?
