In Topic: Anxious Every Time I Come To Work!

10 December 2012 - 01:25 PM

I've stopped being surprised by my coworkers' insensitivity - there have been far too many incidents since I was diagnosed last year. Last Christmas I took a snack for myself to the party, this year I will do the same. Or maybe I'll stay home and watch Dr Phil. Has he done a show on insensitive coworkers?

But seriously, what kind of person takes peanut butter cookies to a workplace where a coworker is deathly allergic? And then jokes about it? But sadly I work with people like that too. If they dont care about people that could die from their carelessness what chance do we have? So to all the insensitive people out there I wish you a Merry Christmas and I hope that karma reaches out and bites you.

Or you could invite her over to your house to do some baking with you and send some goodies home all wrapped up for her to put in her freezer. Then she could bring goodies that you know are safe when she brings in treats for the class.

In Topic: I Had A Nightmare That I Ate A Crouton

I had the sandwich nightmares for months, they've now been replaced by the Chapmans ice cream nightmares - so tasty, always glutenfree and so reasonably priced, but alas, not lactose free, I often wonder what will be next and pray that it wont be wine!

In Topic: Diagnosing A Lactose Intolerence

I did the "I am an idiot" thing this summer. After 2 months of horrible stomach pain and bloating, I read back thru my journal and there it was - ate cheese, got pain and nausea, ate ice cream - pain and nausea and bloating, sick after eating a bowl of Corn Chex - maybe its the corn???
So after my one functioning brain cell kicked on, I realized hey its dairy so now I use almond milk and buy hideously expensive fake ice cream and I dont even miss dairy anymore. , That was a big shock cause I said back when I was diagnosed celiac that it would be easier to give up gluten than dairy (what did I know, I was just a newbie....) and now I've given up both - and survived

A friend of mine who has a dairy farm told me that unpasteurised milk would be OK and I didn't believe her! I'm going to check that out.

I definitely had horrible digestive issues when I ate brown rice, early on when i went gluten free my reactions were alot worse than they are now - I have not been glutened in the last several months but I have recently become lactose intolerant and possibly corn as well. And the bloated stomach is the first thing that happens - I know how awful that feels. On my bloaty days I try to eat less and drink Boost meal replacements, they are gluten-free and lactose free so OK for me. That seems to help my stomach as its easier to digest. The one thing that has saved me over the years (I went undiagnosed for 8 yrs) was acupuncture. It relieves my digestive system, and it relaxes me and takes me to my Zen place which is exactly where I need to be on those bad days.
Hang in there...
