Topics I've Started

Silent Celiac No More!

09 January 2014 - 06:00 PM

I have been gluten free for 1 year 7 months and 19 days. In all this time I have been glutened twice. The second time was last night. I decided to eat pulled pork at a restaurant without asking if it was gluten-free. I woke up at 2 AM and I felt like I had eaten 10 lbs. of pulled pork. Grrrrr. It turns out that the pulled pork is the only meat they serve with gluten. So this is the first time I have ever been bloated. I guess from now on I will probably have digestive issues if I get glutened. I'm not posting to complain but I know there are others out there wondering about this.

Thanks for listening.

Since being diagnosed I have had a few celiac dreams.


In one dream there are some Church's biscuits and I pick one up and decide it won't hurt anything to have one.  Half way through chewing the first bite I'm like "What am I doing!"  and spit it out. :D


Last night I dreamed got a handful of chex mix and popped it into my mouth.  The I'm like "WTH!"  and spit it out.  :lol:

Graduation Party

03 June 2013 - 06:30 PM

So' we went to a graduation party Saturday for the daughter of some friends.  Before going to the party I had a salad just in case.  Now, I don't keep my celiac disease a secret but people that don't deal with it everyday do not know how all consuming celiac disease is.  I was diagnosed with breast cancer 5/09/2012 and then I was diagnosed with celiac disease 5/21/2012.  Frankly, the celiac disease is there every moment of every day.  My breast cancer tumor was 8mm, estrogen and progesterone positive(Thank God).  My treatment was lumpectomy, radiation treatment, and tamoxifen for 5 years.  The January  mammogram showed no evidence of disease, next mammogram is in June.  So, even though I worry about recurrence on occasion I feel like I don't have to worry as much about this than the celiac disease.  I do worry about other cancers because of the celiac disease.


Anyhow, I was very happy nobody noticed I did not eat any pizza. It was a relief my friend did not have to make a big deal about me not being able to eat pizza and trying to find something I could eat.  I greatly enjoyed being able to visit with all of my former neighbors and watch the teenagers play in the water.


I just wanted to share this with yawl because you understand better than anyone else.


Good Night

Bare Minerals

22 May 2013 - 05:05 PM



I need some make-up, so I went to the Bare Minerals website.  Under FAQs there is a question which asks if their products contain wheat, barley, rye, or oats.  In response they list all of the products that are gluten-free, but they state that it is possible these products are made on shared equipment .


Have any of you had problems with Bare Minerals?



Insomnia & Lack Of Energy

05 March 2013 - 04:54 AM



I have been gluten-free since 5/21/2012.  I have suffered insomnia since my teenage years.  After being gluten-free for a couple of months I started to sleep better, but for the last two months I am back to only sleepin 4-5 hours a night.  I also have a lack of energy and weakness.  The other day I tried to change the setting on my shower and was not able to twist the shower head like I had been able to before.  Anyone else with these problems?
