In Topic: 14 And Gluten Free... Making Others Listen

Hi rml,
I read your orig july5 post above which is now erased? I thought it was a good description of your situation, and well-written.

I know the "can't be too careful" mindset, and that there's plenty of times i'd go 'overboard' by someone else's definition, but THEY don't know what it's like, do they?

I say be as careful or overly careful as makes you comfortable, despite whatever else goes on in the house. As time goes by you might re-evaluate boundaries but family members that aren't affected (perhaps a "yet" belongs here) shouldn't be making the gluten-free rules for you. (Now I'm not certain how well I remember your post)

Everyone on the forum is rooting for you & will offer tips as much as possible.

Now, regarding the wipes if no sink around - I don't know. Would that be for if you for sure touched some bread, or more like "better safe than sorry"?

Im not sure what happened to my original post.... I asked about the wipes and then it was gone with just "......"
Anyway, I really appreciate what you said about being too careful. I often don't listen to others and just do what makes me feel comfortable even if I know that I sometimes go too far. I dont like taking chance and even if others think my precautions are crazy I try not to listen and do them anyway. My parents are starting to think that Im being obsessive over how causious I am, thats why I had mentioned being unsure of my careful ways...
As for the wipes it would be for "better safe than sorry" perposes....I dont touch gluten at all (and in the rare occassion that I do, I scrub up to my elbows atleast 3 times with a lot of soap and water)
Thanks! :)

In Topic: How Bad Is Wheat In Shampoo?

06 July 2012 - 04:59 PM

It depends on your sensitivity...I was about to use some body wash with wheat protien in it and when I realized what was in it I washed it off and rewashed with a different (gluten-free) product. I thought I was fine but when I dried off I was itchy and when I looked at my leg(only place that actually had contact with the wash)my skin was red and bumpy with a horrible rash. I read all my health care products now before getting to the register.

Thank you so much!

- I will definately let you know if I have any other concerns over Hershey. Its good to know that you have know some chefs in Hershey. Getting questions answered by those actually preparing the food (or atleast someone who kknows the chefs preparing the food) makes me feel so much better! :)

Do you know if wipes, like Wet Ones, would be a better option if I can't get to a sink?
