Breadcrumbs In My Butter!

15 September 2012 - 07:38 PM

After being diagnosed with celiac and recently dairy intolerant...I never thought I'd have a nice piece of bread and butter, or a bagel with butter ever again! I found Glutino English muffins, Jillian's French rolls, and earth balance spread....I have been so happy:) mmmmm I love eating a nice buttered roll that tastes GOOD! It took me two years to find good substitutes. This morning when I was about to butter my English muffin, I noticed crumbs in my butter...CRUMBS! My GLUTEN FREE YUMMY CRUMBS! I know it sounds stupid...but I almost cried. Cuz I hadnt seen that in almost two years. I am so happy! This is getting much easier. I never thought if was possible!
Today at a baby shower I was just eating chips (which I took out of a bag that I opened first lol) and a lady said "why don't you get some food?" I used to say "I have celiac" and then feel like I had to explain to everyone. But this time I just said "I'm all set, thanks though":) my friend who is awesome said "she has to eat gluten free". They all went "awwwwww"....I told them not to feel bad for me, I could eat Reeses! Lol! I'm getting over feeling sorry for myself now and trying to focus on getting healthy. Thank you guys for all your support:) I feel like from here....it's only going to get easier! It's been rough, but things are starting to turn towards the better! Yay!

When Was Your Celiac Triggered?

15 July 2012 - 07:51 PM

My question is, what triggered your celiac? Did you one day randomly feel sick and it just never stopped til you were diagnosed, or was it a gradual onset of symptoms?

I'm still trying to figure out what triggered mine. I was 11, and was about to get in the shower one night when I suddenly felt severely nauseous. I thought it was a 24-hour stomach bug. But it went on....a 3 day stomach bug? Week long stomach bug? Nope it just kept on going and hasn't stopped for the past 6 years. It was such a random thing, before that day I felt nauseous, I was super healthy. But I don't know what triggered it cause I was only 11 so didn't have any real stress, and hasn't had any infections. What else can trigger it? Thanks :) some things about Celiac will always be a mystery :)

Swedish Fish

05 July 2012 - 12:36 PM

I have always loved Swedish fish and they are gluten free (according to the company) and since I've cut out gluten and dairy they have been my go-to sugary snack. I bought some yesterday and ate them but felt sick to my stomach. I just ate some more 2 minutes ago and now feel sick again :P does anyone know if they are for sure gluten free? Im not having a reaction like I usually would to gluten so idk if it's gluten or something else....
Ingredients: sugar, invert sugar, corn syrup, modified corn starch, citric acid, white mineral oil, artificial flavored, red40, and caranauba wax
Thanks for any help..... It might just be too much JUNK!

Finally Getting Some Color

04 July 2012 - 01:27 PM

WOOOOHOOO!
I have been as pasty white and pale as can be for my whole life. Like a sickly looking white....going gluten free didn't help that, but recently I found out that I'm severely anemic so doctor told me to take Iron. After taking it for 3 weeks , I noticed today that I am actually getting some color! My cheeks look a little pinker, and my arms actually are less white! This is great I'm SO excited! People always say " you're the whitest person on earth" and "are you albino" lol
But now I'm getting some color! No one thinks it's exciting but me:P but I know you guys always get happy over little breakthroughs in our health so Yay!

Want To Start A New Chapter After Graduation!

08 June 2012 - 07:32 PM

I'm graduating from high school tomorrow! Yay! Thankfully my parents bought md gluten free food that looks like what everyone else is eating. Which is what I'm trying to work on.

As some of you may know, I have trouble with people understanding/believing me about celiac at my church. Specifically the teens. I got into yet another argument about it with one of these teens the other week. It was awful. She denied ever doing the things we were taking about her doing, right as the adults came over and it made me look really stupid. My best friend offered to talk to this girl and ask her why she gives me such a hard time about celiac. And do you know what the girl said? "because she expresses it too much" I express it too much? My friend asked what that meant. The reply " because she brings her own food and obviously exaggerates." welll I'm still going to bring my own food. I don't express it unless someone asks me why k have my own food and I tell them because I have celiac. And I don't exaggerate (I'm sure you guys get that line too!:P )but I want to start a new chapter. I've been eating gluten free for a year and a half now and I feel like I'm ready to educate people better than I could before.

I'm going to give it one more try at educating these rude teens about celiac. About why I eat the way I do. About how important it is that I eat this way. My question is....how can I not "express" my celiac as much? Is there a way? I don't talk about unless someone asks me about it. But what can j do different? I'm graduating and want to try one more time over the summer to help these (helpless) teens be more compassionate and understand health problems. Otherwise I will never have another chance as I start college in the fall.
What can I do? My life is SO stressed right now and to have my teen class be understanding would take a lot of stress away. Thanks:)
