#779213 Friends Purposely Glutening Me!

Posted by on 07 March 2012 - 05:12 PM

What disturbs me the most is.... this is a RELIGIOUS youth group??
No evidence of "loving kindness for your neighbors" here :rolleyes:

You shouldn't feel scared to be with "friends". You shouldn't have to worry that they are poisoning you while you sleep. And you really shouldn't have to put your food under lock and key. That's just nuts.

Where is the youth minister in all this? :angry:
He should put a stop to this baloney right now.
And dismiss the bullies from the group.

Sorry, sweetie, but it seems to me that you need to find a better group of friends.

THANK YOU!! That's exactly what I was thinking. The youth pastor should be talking to the parents of the kids who are causing you trouble. Anyone causing trouble should not have the privilege of taking outings with a Christian-centered group. It's like rewarding bad behavior, especially when it continues after the youth pastor has talked to the offending group of kids.

When you seal your food, make sure your tape doesn't overlap perfectly. Then sign and date the tape over the overlap. If they manage to get the tape off, they won't be able to align the signature back up, and you will know if they messed with it. I am suggesting this because duct tape does actually come off pretty easy if you give it the right yank. And, you can use plastic containers with duct tape if you choose.

#771962 Baffled By Little Caesars Pizza

Posted by on 08 February 2012 - 06:03 PM

My two daughters diagnosed with Celiac had no symptoms whatsoever. It just happened to show up on routine blood tests for my younger daughter who has diabetes. When they did the scope, it was severely affected by the gluten. So just because you don't feel anything doesn't mean it's not doing any harm.

I don't know what is in your area, but I'm sure there are other pizza places that could have gluten free offerings? Here in Michigan, we have Passport Pizza and Dan Good Pizza - both are knowledgeable about CC and Celiac too.

#769672 Help Please? 13 Year Old Son Sneaking Wheat!

Posted by on 31 January 2012 - 05:46 AM

I'm really feeling your problem right now. My 14 y.o. was just diagnosed last Friday and she's really fighting it!

But as for your situation, I have been down your path with the trust issue. It has been a long-standing rule in my house that if you misbehave in school, I go to school with you. If I can't trust you, I need to babysit you. It worked for my two older ones who are in 9th and 7th grades, but my 4th grader had a little problem with doing homework. So for two straight weeks, I walked her into class, put her homework in the slots, got her all set up for school and left. At the end of the day I was there, gathering her books and papers and getting her ready to go home. She went from having b's, c's, and two e's, to straight a's!! And I don't fight her after school anymore to get her to do something.

Point is, a little humiliation goes a long way. Show up twice a week at lunch for a few weeks (not on the same days) - unannounced - and he might start listening. No one wants their mom to come and sit with them at school. It sucks that you would have to threaten to embarrass him to get him to listen to you, but it's for his health. There's no better reason.

#763930 gluten-free Protein Powders

All I could find that were questionable were the tocopherols, and the natural and artificial flavorings. It's not guaranteed that these ingredients aren't using a gluten filler. I checked all the other ingredients for you, they're good.
