Yeah, what is hard for us is people's inability to think before they talk

#880732 Beware Archer Farms Gluten Free Fusili

Posted by dani nero on 23 July 2013 - 10:11 AM

Why are you mad at them? I love it when companies write the considerate message of processed in a facility that handles wheat. 

Taking it out on them even though they were considerate won't make your gluten-symptoms go away. 

 

Double probiotics and lots of water and rest. Get well soon

#880135 Pretty Sure Im Slowing Dying. - Past Gluten Free

Posted by dani nero on 18 July 2013 - 03:19 PM

It doesn't matter how healthy you eat. If you're celiac, your body isn't absorbing the nutrients you need, or at least enough of them.

 

Before finding out about celiac, I woke up every morning feeling like I was a zombie who got hit by a bus the previous night, so I decided to eliminate any junk food and processed snacks from my diet in order to have more energy. Instead of feeling better, I felt worse, and worse.

#880132 Struggling As A Celiac:(

Posted by dani nero on 18 July 2013 - 03:06 PM

Your cravings might be a sign that  you need more nutrition? There is an introductory 101 thread in the very top of this board by IrishHeart. It is very good reading. Lots of information about our needs and the learning curve we go through while healing.

 

 

Welcome to the forum, nice to meet you :-)

#880127 Celiac Equals A Lonely Life

Posted by dani nero on 18 July 2013 - 02:51 PM

My immediate family is trying, and asking me more questions on what I can eat and how to prepare when I come over. My outside family, not so much but I chose to distance myself from them on food occasions. I'm definitely learning who my friends are! Not that I need to have social occasions around food and have absolutely no problem preparing my own, but I've been excluded from non-food functions as well. I have (real friends) that are cool with the idea. I am getting tired of explaining the disease and diet, but I remind myself that I didn't know much about celiac disease before diagnosis. Most, I think just want educated on the topic.

I refuse to let the disease define me. I still go out and do my activities when I can and I'm rebuilding my body. When I work out I have to keep "before sickness" body out of my head and focus on what I've got at the present. There's good days and bad days but I do seem to have more good days than bad. So I guess I'm headed in the right direction.

 

I admire your determination and hope that your good days will always outnumber the bad ones :-)

#874934 Celiac Equals A Lonely Life

Life is rotten isn't it. Doesn't feel like like celiacs will be part of the norm for decades. Awareness, change and adaptations are happening way too slowly.

#872824 Battling No Food

Posted by dani nero on 05 June 2013 - 11:36 AM

The fridge is full of goods all with Gluten, but you're starving and you haven't eaten all day.

No shops are open

 

Discuss your next decision here and your reasoning...

 

Seems to be my downfall alot. My general decision is given in to hunger pains and pray for a better tomorrow (it never comes)

 

Well, eating gluten is harmful, while fasting for a night won't hurt. Since shops would eventually open in the morning, I'd rather go hungry until then than ruin my life for a few weeks. A little hunger doesn't hurt, gluten does .. Just think of it as poison.. which it is if you're celiac :-)

#870233 The New Celiac Drug Is Out There

Posted by dani nero on 23 May 2013 - 02:03 AM

It feels like "if you can't beat them, join them".

I am who I am. I don't eat gluten, and I never want to.. not after it has ruined 20+ years of my life. The world will have to accept that and make space for me, without this drug.

#870012 Can Cat Food Cause Glutening?

Posted by dani nero on 21 May 2013 - 02:55 PM

Yep many of us have been glutened by pet food. In my case it was rabbit food. The risk does not only come from the food itself, but some traces can be on the pet's fur. Meaning that you have to wash your hands after petting.

I found gluten-free pellets for my bun now, which has worked well for both of us.

#869699 Newbie With Chronic Constipation

Posted by dani nero on 20 May 2013 - 01:20 AM

The reason some celiacs get constipated is that their damaged small intenstines don't process the food completely, which leads to the continuous absorbtion of the moisture in the food instead of the nutrients (since the food isn't comletely processed), until the food (then in stool form) has become extremely dry by the time it reaches the large intestines. That's why fibers alone don't help. You need water, and a lot of it + probiotics to help the intestines regulate and heal faster. The problem with chronic constipation is that it can cause the large intestines to get larger, and in turn not be able to feel when you need to go.. I think.. I'm not sure.. which is why you might be needing laxatives. I think that when I read about that I also read that they can go back to their original size after you've healed.

 

I was so reluctant and bummed about using probiotics in the beginning until everyone here convinced me to use them. They've done wonders!

There is nothing difficult about explaining Celiac if the guy you are dating is smart, caring and open-minded

#807615 Anyone Else Getting Obsessed With Instagram?

Posted by dani nero on 30 June 2012 - 11:54 PM

Oh... I don't have a phone that has 'apps'.... Yay! One more timesucking activity I won't allow myself to get addicted to! :ph34r: :ph34r:


You can call photography a time sucking addiction if that's how you feel about it.. I thought it was a hobby.. or maybe it used to be :-(

#807065 Anyone Else Getting Obsessed With Instagram?

Posted by dani nero on 28 June 2012 - 01:09 PM

I've never been on that website. I'll make sure not to!


It's not a website, it's a phone app which takes photos then gives you the option to publish them on your own gallery. You can also look at other people's photos.. and there are people who are just so amazing.. So many colors, so many different compositions, so much pretty stuff.. it's just.. I'm so obsessed with it :-O

Then you can make a page that shows all the pictures you've taken! Here are mine :-)

I spend most of my free time browsing photos on it and taking photos of my own :-O I'm planning a bicycle trip tomorrow to inspect a gluten-free bakery I heard about, but the truth is.. I'm just going to take interesting photos for instagram on the way!

#804167 Just A Little Humor

Posted by dani nero on 17 June 2012 - 03:09 PM

1. No, you can't kill gluten by cooking it.

2. You can eat rice if you have celiac.

3. You don't have IBS, you have celiac, but you seem to also lack the ability to accept that.

4. Please don't feel sorry for me because I don't eat gluten, feel sorry for yourself because you can't imagine your life without it.

5. I'm tired because I haven't been fed for 20 years, so don't talk to me about will-power. I have more of that than 10 of you (deadbreadheads) put together.

6. I wish there was a machine that would allow others to feel what I'm feeling. Then I wouldn't have to explain my symptoms to walls every day.
