I Need Good Bread!

14 August 2012 - 11:07 AM

Ok I have been gluten free for 2 months. I found a decent or at least edible pasta but I can not find a decent bread!!! OMG I didn't think I would miss it so much but I just want a big juicy hamburger on a SOFT YUMMY WHITE bread!!! Anyone know where or how to get good bread???

Gluten Free On A Cruise Anyone?/

14 August 2012 - 10:53 AM

In 2 weeks I am going on a 7 day Cruise to the Caribbean (Jamacia,Grand Cayman, Cozumel). This will be my son's first vacation and he is almost 8 years old. I REALLY don't want to get any gluten and ruin my cruise. Any suggestions on how to make sure my trip stays gluten free? :D

I can't believe how much better I am doing. I have gone from barely being able to walk from the house to the car to a Cruise, I just went to see Jennifer Lopez in concert and had to walk 4 blocks to get there! OMG it was so hard but I did it! I honestly believe if we had not figured out that I have Celiac I would have been dead within a year. Instead I am getting better every day. I have lost 32lbs in 2 months! I have energy again... I forgot what it was like to feel decent. I am no where near well but I am a hell of a lot closer than I was. :D

Declaring It Offical.......

06 July 2012 - 01:32 PM

Ok so I have been hesitant to say (even though all testing is done) that I am gluten intolerant possibly even have Celiac. Well after emailing back and forth with Dr Vikki Petersen (author of the Gluten Effect) I can offically say I have a very serious autoimmune gluten intolerance. I am double DQ1 with Lichen Planus, Iron deficeincy anemia, Severe Vit D deficeincy, Osteomalacia, RLS, GERD, PCOS, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, elevated liver enzymes, severe pitting edema, mild tricuspid regurge.

I have been Gluten Free for 2 weeks now and on vitamins. I can already see a major difference in my energy levels and my muscle weakness is starting to get better. Instead of tolerating only 3 mins on my feet I made it through a 15 min trip to CVS today! I haven't gone shopping in over a month because I can barely walk from the house to the car. Granted I still have a LONG WAY TO GO but this is a fantastic start! :D SOOOOO SOOOO Happy!
