Peanut Butter?

I need someone to clear this up for me once and for all! Is Kraft peanut butter gluten free or not??? I called them, they told me that it is, then my daughter calls and tells me it's not! I re-read the ingredients...what am I missing?   Please help!

Fed Up With Doctors

No wonder I can't move ahead in my life - something is always pulling me back!   I don't get it - not only did they miss my diagnosis for 20 years, apparently the "complete" hysterectomy that I had 22 years ago - wasn't complete! They told me they took "everything" out.   While doing the tests for the other problems I am dealing with at the moment they happened to find something that appears t...

Monday For Sure?

I spoke with the doctor's secretary twice last week to try to get the results. First time I called her she said I had to go for another test as they needed to see something else. I asked her if there was anything showing on the left side as I spent most of the weekend in bed (last weekend)She said yeah, a lateral blah blah - I missed it. So I called her the next day to clarify...something...

How Rude!

The teckie that did my test last sunday told me that the doctor's office would get the results by wednesday....Well wednesday came and went with no call, so Thursday afternoon I call the doctor's office and tell the lady why I'm calling she says she will look into it and call me back.... Friday at noon I still hadn't heard so I called the office again, this is what I got "Thank you for calling...

It Wasn't What I Thought It Would Be!

You'd think with the world so advanced in technology, someone would take the time to make that stuff Telebrix taste better. Would it be that hard? Seriously, I don't know! The CTscan was nothing like I expected. I had an 11 am appointment, I wasn't allowed to eat 4 hours before the test so at 6 am - I was sleeping anyway Then at 9 am I had to mix the Telebrix with 450ml of water. So I...

Surgery Update

So I am going for a CT SCAN on Sunday.....Sunday? of a long weekend... Well I never It apparently is better than the ultrasound I was supposed to be setup for. Never had one before so it should be interesting.   I have another issue going on in my life, a pretty big one - which may take time to work through! There was an incident where my father is buried and it's pretty creepy and extremely ...

Gotta Have More Surgery... :(

So I went to the doctors/surgeon's office today...and I have to have surgery to repair an insitional hernia I got when I had the last surgery to remove part of my bowel. which came about in the first place when they discovered I had celiac disease... the irony of it all... Now keep in mind, I have been sick and undiagnosed for 20 years, so imagine...if they caught it earlier all this crap...

It's Been 4 Days And I Haven't Cheated!

I am very pleased with myself, it's been 4 days and I haven't cheated! Don't get me wrong, I haven't learned to cook or anything simple like that! But I've been working and I never really had the chance to cheat, BUT I didn't cheat cause I managed to eat only 1 meal a day! It was always dinner and even though it was pretty much the same thing twice chicken and potatoes and veggies for...

A Never Ending Saga!

Everyday it's the same battle - "what do I or don't I" eat? I don't want to sound like a wimp or anything but this sucks! 3 years and I can't figure it out! I have alot more information available to me now but it's got to be simple I can't say that enough! I don't want to make 3 course meals with fancy schmancey food and sauces. I want a fast great tasting meal at least 4 times a week, rest...

Too Much Info!

After re-reading my posts I can see I definetly need help...so I went on a little search - that turned into a big search and confused the hell out of me! I thought I knew nothing before - I am now convinced of it! There are words I have never even heard of, words I cannot pronounce..... :eek: I had a guest come into the motel where I work and she told me she has a daughter that is Celiac. She...

I Can't Stop!

I would rather starve for 2 days than eat some of the stuff I can cook I am sooooo sick of rice - I haven't made it right yet! I can go for a couple of days when my willpower is in gear, I won't cheat, I'll just wait till I'm finally hungry enough and I'll make fish and veggies and of course RICE!   But when I have brain fog and I just don't care, I'll break down and eat a burger or something....

Am I The Only One?

How come everyone seems to know so much about this disease? Is it cause you have the handbooks? Go to the meetings? Know how to cook? Are the handbooks that big of a deal? Sheesh for the life of me I can't figure this stuff out...it seems unless it's in simple step by step instructions - I can't seem to comprehend it I don't mean things like you can use this product or that product - what I...

It's Amazing!

Isin't it just amazing how people around you have absolutely no clue as to what it's like to be gluten-free! Everybody wants to go out and get "pizza" or "burgers", even after repeatedly telling them about being celiac. The worst....a family member....living with a person who watched what you went through for 20 years, and now on the road to recovery - a total 360 life change - and they still...

More To Come!

I just found this forum again after almost a year of lost hard drives and computer crashes and anything else that could go wrong! I plan on getting active again and getting the information I need to live my life properly, without resorting to eating foods I'm not supposed to! Over the next month I plan on updating my web site - Visit My Website - to what I have learned to date, however, I will...
