In Topic: Gluten-Free Bakeries - Bit Of A Long Shot!

Oh and while it can seem like nirvana, the bread from the gluten free bakeries can be hit and miss. And just as, if not more expensive.
(I have currently got some foil wrapped gluten-free pizza bread in my freezer from the gluten-free bakery - can't wait to see what it's like, it feels like french bread, I'm sure I will be disappointed!)

Gosh, I've just got back from the UK (British living in NZ) and I was really impressed by the gluten free bread in the supermarket. Tescos had ciabatta rolls which were really nice and I think there was a brand called genius which was yummy, could eat it for sandwiches - all the supermarket gluten free bread here has to be toasted. Also your supermarket gluten-free pasta is heaps better than ours
So be grateful, haha!
I'm sure there will be gluten-free bakeries locally. We have two in Auckland, up until last week I only knew of one - the others been there for years apparently. Just a case of knowing. Somtimes major digging and venturing into new areas is needed.

In Topic: Do You Get A Flu Shot?

04 October 2012 - 04:10 PM

I always get a flu shot because I have asthma so flu is particularly bad news. A couple of years I got sick after getting it but can't say if it was connected as there were other contraction possibilities. I understand the concerns but on the whole I think it's well worthwhile for anyone at extra risk if they get flu (elderly, low immune, asthmatic etc).

PS: It can also be sad to think who we may have been without gluten and what we may have achieved/experience. I can only say now, after hanging out with some incredibly vibrant 70 year olds (I'm in my 40s) that there's still time for many of us to fulfil our potential now we are free - or at least on the road to recovery.

These posts make me emotional too. All these symptoms are ringing so many bells. It's amazing to hear people talk about memory problems because usually people don't get it at all when I talk about memory issues. I don't remember, as another poster said, whole years, most of my childhood in fact. I've been complaining of a bad memory since I was a young teen, my dad used to say it was because I blanked out my childhood because of operations (plastic surgery and stuff) but it's continued. I started getting depressive symptoms in my teens too although it didn't explode (huge anxiety/depressive) until my 30s when I was also diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. In the past I have wondered all kinds of things about what I might have. I have never got many answers from the cognition difficulties which come with a low and yet don't really seem to come under the umbrella of depression. Three years of gluten free did make me feel a lot better but I don't think memory will come back unfortunately. I didn't have the depth of low during those three years that I had this year after a few months back on gluten (took months to put two and two together unfortunately) - now I'm convinced that for me, a major factor, even more than digestive disturbance is behaviour. It's a shame it's not easier to diagnose (without a clear diagnosis we can drift back into gluten) and that so many of us have take so long to reach the discovery but at least we have. These days I keep saying to everyone, whatever their problem, have you tried going gluten free?! :P
