Me and a 3rd cousin so far, I'm sure my Grandma has it, and my sister probably does...Who knows how many others...

Oh My Gosh, I feel your pain. Today ALL I wanted was a Double Cheese Burger, a large fry, and a 50 piece nugget....and like you it's hard to squash that feeling during certain times... I wanted it SOOOOOOOOOOO bad, and it didn't help my Dad had done the drive thru and gotten some McNuggets...I seriously wanted to cry. I've tried everything, eating a snack, having special snakes, and NOTHING can kill the craving! I think McDonald's is poisoned so that women everywhere feel the NEED to eat it. *I hate life right now*

In Topic: Celiac Switching From gluten-free Back To Gluten..help!

I don't think the response was rude, it was honest and based in reality. It serves no purpose to cover up an illness just to try and make it through basic training. Sometimes a person cannot do what they want in life due to an illness or condition and there is no shame in that. I'm sure there are positions in the military where having Celiac would not compromise their job duties but lying and covering up so you can pass basic, and then having it diagnosed as a new condition is plain stupid, not to mention dishonest. Not a good way to start out a military career and there is no guarantee this won't keep you from getting a medical discharge anyway.


I agree, my Dad was in the military, and therefore I've been to the military doctor's and sometimes they can be a bit clueless....They see 100's of patients each and every day. And while some are actually sick, some are just trying to get out of PT, or get SOMETHING on their charts so when they leave the service they can draw better benefits. There is no honor in that at all!

As far as symptoms go, for me each time I get exposed the symptoms get worse, and then the next time it takes even less to trigger me... :( I can't imagine eating wheat for a day, much less two months...I'd be worthless that whole time stuck in the bathroom :P

I pray you don't have to do it, but if you do I pray you heal quickly afterwards...

In Topic: I Am Ready To Eat Gluten!

my pleasure. Lol !!! I think that this is a topic that concerns all celiacs to some degree but not necessarily one that is easy to bring up. But desperation does force us I guess and it's good to feel so safe to talk on this board.


Very true! :)
Thanks for having that courage!

Whenever I crave Chinese food I make it myself, if I'm feeling like cooking alot I get a bottle of Teryiaki (spelled wrong I know, but my spell check can't find the word :P) some chicken, peas, and I make it. If I'm feeling lazy I get a box of the new gluten-free Chicken Helper Fried Rice! (I add extra pea's to it though, there never seem to be enough) It tastes AMAZING and I just love it.

As for P.F Changs, I'll never eat there. The one time my Dad and I found one, we asked to look around before we decided to eat there,and there were plain wheat filled noodles EVERYWHERE, in all the other food containers, people were using the same tongs for all the foods, and it was chaos. I almost had nightmares about that place :P
