Thanks everyone! I'm starting to feel less crabby about it. I think I was just having a really crabby day for some reason. Per suggestion, I did go out and get all new measuring spoons, cups, mixing bowls, etc. I bought them in bright colors so we can differentiate which ones are "mine" and which ones are for everyone else. Maybe I did get CC'd at home. I didn't feel bad, just irritable. I must be over the hump because I wasn't even annoyed when I saw that my husband was marinating steaks in something I can't have. I guess he's going to have to get used to looking at labels too if he wants to cook for the family. LOL!

On the other hand, today I have felt bad all day. I can't figure out what might have gone wrong. I went out for sushi and specifically asked for gluten-free sushi . I even asked for gluten-free soy sauce and I asked if the wasabi was gluten-free (it wasn't :() so I avoided it. I did go out for a dessert cocktail after dinner, though, and I'm wondering if that was it. It was ice cream and chocolate vodka. Thoughts? Since I'm supposedly not that sensitive I'm surprised to be feeling so bad. It has me second guessing going out again. So frustrating!

Thank you everyone for making me feel normal and welcome! Most people make me feel like a whiner. For some reason I'm just in a really angry mood lately. I was doing so well for the first two weeks. I don't know why it just hit. Clearly I'm in the anger stage of the grieving process.

I have been playing around with real cooking for the last few weeks. Unfortunately, I have a family that isn't very tolerant of my situation. I sometimes find myself just zapping microwaveable meals for the kids because they aren't digging my risotto or gluten-free pasta dishes :) They did all love my roast chicken, though, so yea me! So, while I'd love to just put all the gluteny stuff in the trash, I keep it around for my hubby and the kids to eat. I'm just careful about CC when I prepare food. It's not that hard. Maybe I can turn them to the dark side at some point...or at least when they are eating at home.

I think I'm also a little confused because the doctor said that I had a "weak positive" - whatever the heck that means. I thought you either had it or you didn't have it. He said I could just eat normal and then come back in 3 years for my routine colonoscopy to see if it's any worse. He seems to think that all of my pain is due to IBS. I'm not even sure if I need to be doing this, but I have been feeling some better so it seems like I should stick to it. Especially when I read some of the things on these boards. It seems like even doctors don't give a lot of credit to the gluten-free lifestyle.

In any event, thanks for cheering me up a little bit. I'll keep poking around on the other areas of the site to see if I can get more tips and tricks. In the meantime, feel free to keep trying to boost my mood :)
