In Topic: Ridiculous Conversations

25 November 2013 - 02:54 PM

LOL at all of these, I can totally relate. I've been vegetarian for over 20 years and vegan for 10+ so I'm totally used to people asking completely idiotic questions and making dumb remarks about what I can/can't eat. Maybe that was practice for being diagnosed with celiac because I get even more people who are clueless. And I hate when people say "I could never do that." As if we have a choice. (Well, I guess we could choose to eat whatever we want and then just suffer...?)


A waitress once brought me the gluten free menu I asked for, and then told me that they take gluten-free very seriously and then she brought me a BEER instead of the cider I ordered. I spit it out once I tasted it (I had a feeling it was beer but she inisted it wasn't so I took a sip). Then later she said, Yes it was a beer, she brought me the wrong drink, and then she asked me if she should call an ambulance. ???

I did have to replace the toaster and make our kitchen a gluten free kitchen. Maybe some people aren't that sensitive, but I am. :P 

In Topic: Any Vegetarians That Had To Return To Eating Meat Post Diagnosis?

25 November 2013 - 02:33 PM

I have been a vegan for more than 10 years, and a vegetarian for more than 20 years. I was diagnosed with celiac a couple years ago, so that meant I had to give up most meat substitutes (like veggie dogs) as most of them are made from gluten. That leaves tofu, which I keep hearing is really not good to eat a lot of. :/

I never missed meat until I had to stop eating gluten. But I'm not going to go back to eating meat. That's just my personal choice. 

In Topic: Depression And Celiac

Thank you everyone for your responses. My doc that did the endo had me in a year after the endo and did a blood test and said it looks like I'm still getting glutened and that I need to make sure that I don't eat ANY gluten -- even stuff that says "made in a facility that processes wheat" blah blah blah. So I have been more careful since then. I am finding out that I am REALLY sensitive to it. I get panic attacks/diarrhea/depression along with several other symptoms whenever I get glutened. It's quite a nightmare as I'm sure you are all well aware! Anyway, I never heard from him again after that. Maybe I should go back and get another blood test. 


I haven't had vitamin deficiencies checked in the past year but the last time, I was told it's all good. I saw a psych the other day who prescribed 10mgs of Prozac but I really don't want to take it. The thought of my symptoms worsening before they get better, or side effects, or what have you, just not something I want to deal with right now. 


Might try some 5HTP or St. Johns Wort. ...

Thanks for the suggestions and info everyone!!


I don't have any B deficiencies, which is probably pretty amazing considering vegan diet/celiac. The best I have ever felt was right before i had kids, maybe they are just sapping my energy, haha! Seriously though, I wasn't eating very much food at that time, mostly salads and smoothies, so it may have been because I was (accidentally) not eating much gluten. But then again, I'm not eating ANY gluten now, so you would think that would help me out!
