Thank you for all the replies!

As far as Applebee's go, I used to have the BEST luck going there. I'm under suspicion to believe it's the Pepsi...I know that sounds crazy but at Applebee's that serve Coke I don't usually get sick. Go figure :P

As for the Island! I vote for anywhere warm!! I'm sick of the cold already!


As for day 3 of this adventure....I feel like poop. And I can't think of any other way to describe it.

#655248 Gluten Free Packaged Food Is Expensive!

Posted by polarbearscooby on 21 November 2010 - 03:26 PM

You can kind some foods cheap at (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned)

Mostly I try to find 'regular' foods that I can eat...and then only buy the substitutes I HAVE to, like noodles and cookies and such :P

Then again i live in the middle of no where, the closest store I can find gluten-free noodles is 45 minutes away

#654403 Feeling Totally Overwhelmed

Posted by polarbearscooby on 18 November 2010 - 07:11 AM

Well, as the title says, I have found myself completely overwhelmed with this wretched disease. I am currently a sophomore at a huge state university and just found out I would not be getting my illness related absences excused because "I should just avoid eating gluten and then I would be able to go to class no problem." Excuse me while I scream in frustration. You would think that the disability service office of a school with more than 30,000 students would be SLIGHTLY familiar with celiacs, but it seems that is not the case here. I really want to do nothing more than curl up in my bed and cry. Melodramatic? maybe. But I have reached the point where I don't even feel like trying anymore. It doesn't matter what I eat because everything in the dining hall is contaminated, even when they specially prepare the meal for me. I've had the disease for a little under a year and I'm totally losing steam with the diet in general, which is especially dangerous with my first gluten free thanksgiving coming up. I really don't even know what to do anymore, or where to turn, but I definitely recognize that this has gone past the "just pull yourself up" stage. Sorry for all the whining :(


Oh my gosh, I feel your pain. Im a sophomore at a CHRISTIAN university (I put this in caps for the stupidity that follows). If you live on campus you HAVE to have a meal plan. So I live off campus with my parents (I'm not old enough according to my colleges rules to live alone) because I can't eat ANYTHING in the Caf. And when I became over absent (after 6 misses) I tried to explain to my prof's why I missed. The general consensus was the same as yours "If you avoided wheat you'd be ok". Makes me so freaking angry that they preached grace but gave none.


Anyway that's my rant....
If you need someone to rant to you can DM :)

#619206 Getting Married, Scared For My Future Children

Posted by polarbearscooby on 24 June 2010 - 11:57 AM

You are all so right, celiac is certainly not the worst thing in the world! As the sister of a special needs kid I can attest to this....I don't have nearly as many complications as she does....
And every kid if a gift from God....
If you think you are mature enough to have kids then you should be mature enough to understand that every kid is different right?

I agree...I'm not anywhere near old enough to get married (imho) but I pray everyday that God will let it pass over my kids.....
