#730384 A Tattoo To Symbolize The New Me

Posted by on 14 September 2011 - 11:38 AM

I actually did get a tattoo after my diagnoses. Some would question how relative it is but for me, since it was a colonoscopy that finally led to the diagnoses, it seemed to fit. I will let you figure out where I got it but it is a circle with the line through it in the middle is an arrow pointing down (to mean, exit only). Now of course it will be 9 years before the GI doc does another colonoscopy so he will get to see that (hopefully once I'm under and they roll me over..lol) but my dermatologist got a kick out of it when she did my head to toe skin check last month. :P I guess if, as I age, it sags, nobody but the person who sees me naked will know. ;)

#713417 Mike's Hard Lemonade

Posted by on 01 July 2011 - 07:00 AM

Malt products are not gluten-free. Sorry, I miss hard lemonade too.

At the grocery store last week I asked about Gluten-Free beer and the manager pointed me to Mike's Hard Lemonade Light and the packaging states it's gluten free. He said he asked the distributor and was told it's just the light that's Gluten-Free. I hadn't had any problems w/ the first few I drank but in the last 2 days, I had 2 each day and today my tummy is a bit upset so it's very possible that even though it's packaged as Gluten-Free it's not completely. I know my friend said right off (when she saw me open it) "hey, that's a malt beverage, how can you drink that?". So I guess I will make sure I drink it on a very limited basis as I can't think of anything else that would have gotten my tummy in a bind (it's not bad but I can certainly tell somethings not exactly right). :ph34r:

#704294 Giving Lip-Service To Eating Gluten Free Makes Me Sad

Posted by on 31 May 2011 - 12:11 PM

What gets me the most is hearing "Oh, I wonder if that's what I have cuz I'm always bloated, etc?" Really, people??? What I always say is "if you suspect you may have intolerance to wheat, I suggest you see a GI doctor and if that's not possible, cut it completely out of your diet and if it makes a difference, you most likely do have an issue". At first it felt good that I wasn't instantly labeled a freak and someone could relate..now it just irritates me.

We celebrated my (non-celiac) son's 15th birthday this weekend with a yummy gluten-free chocolate cake and cupcakes. Not one single crumb was left over! B)

#689912 Your One Best Money Saving Idea

Posted by on 05 April 2011 - 11:59 AM

The main thing about this diet is that it takes more thought than our pre-gluten-free days. And since I hate to cook (and hate to grocery shop, and hate to think up what to cook, and hate....well you get the idea, lol) this is the problem for me.

Whew...it's reassuring to know I'm not the only one that feel this way!!! ;)
