Traveling For A Job Interview

29 January 2012 - 03:27 PM

I am going to traveling across the country for a job interview in two weeks. The company is paying to fly my spouse and I out and they plan to "interview and show us around the city" for 3 days. My question is...should I let them know that I have Celiac and am unable to eat gluten prior to leaving? I know that at least one meal/day will be eaten with my potential employers and I will be spending the majority of those 3 days with them. I am not embarassed about having Celiac and it would have no affect on my ability to perform my job, but this is my first major interview and I am nervous about appearing like a diva or high maintenance. Also, I would rather my work skills are discussed as opposed to my inability to eat gluten. Any advice? Anyone else been in the same situation? How did you handle it? Thanks!!!

Pantene Pro-V, Secret Deodorant Confusion

08 July 2011 - 06:29 AM

My favorite shampoo/conditioner is Pantene Pro V Fine to Volume. I also use Secret Unscented Solid deodorant. I have read contradictory things about pro-v and Secret products. Can anyone tell me if they use these products without issue? I would like to continue using them if possible. I have tried other products (Burts Bees, 100% Pure, ect) and don't like them as much.

I have been gluten-free about a year now and I am still getting bad GI upset and somewhat swollen eyes in the morning. I notice that after I eat desserts or a lot of sugar I get gassy and have horrible D. I had two brownies (gluten-free) about an hour before bed last night and woke up with a very swollen face, headache, and basically I feel like I am hungover. Could this be a sign that my villi aren't healed? Should I expect a healing time of about 2 years? Does sugar have an effect on anyone else? So, if I am to give up sugar should that include fruits too? I really love fruit. Your help is, as always, GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!

One more question. I go out to dinner with my in-laws once/week. Some restaurants I just feel kind of iffy about. If I am getting tiny amounts of cc 1x/week could that prevent me from healing? My enterolab anti-gliandin went from 68 (>10 is positive for gluten sensitivity) to 15 (still positive but much better) in a year. Should the lab values be normal by now?


gluten-free Honeymoon Suggestions?

02 June 2011 - 12:05 PM

I am trying to plan my Honeymoon but want to make sure that I go somewhere that I won't spend my time getting glutened and sick. I am very open to any suggestions regarding locations/resorts anywhere (But I am leaning towards somewhere tropical) Thanks!
