A Year Later; Thanksgiving 2008

I've been away from blogging and went in to check my entries today. I was surprised to see that my last blog was a year ago when I wrote about my first Thanksgiving after diagnosis. My, how time flies! Since this year's Thanksgiving has just ended, it's a good time to compare the experience a year later. It's been a crazy year of ups and downs in my personal life. Having to adapt to a new...

First Gluten-free T-giving

Well, it's here. This will be my first holiday season going gluten-free. I took on cooking the thanksgiving dinner for 11 so I could control the gluten. That's really easier in some ways than going somewhere else. My family has been good about accommodating me, but it's hard to trust that someone else's cooking is not cross contaminated. My sister's OK, but my mom does not get it at all! ...

Restaurants And Social Life

Hello again. It's been a while since I've written. I live in a land where seasons change and summer's way too short. I've been busy enjoying life outside and away from a computer (at least at home.) Work's another story.   I've been diagnosed for five months now. In some ways it feels like yesterday and in others like lifetimes ago. It's still a day-to-day adjustment. Challenging situations ...

Dentist Visit

I had my first dentist visit since going gluten-free. It went well. All I had done was a cleaning and I informed the hygienist when I got there that I was dx'd with celiac which meant that I can't tolerate gluten. After she got the puzzled look off her face she checked the ingredients on her supplies. There were a few suspect ones on the mouthwash and no ingredients listed on the floss. After...

Food Supply

I've only been at this gluten-free 'diet' (or rather 'lifestyle') since April 7th. That's about three weeks. Last week was a challenge. I had extra appointments and evening events and skipped dinner a few nights because of them. There was food at a couple of the events, but I couldn't eat any of it. I was in too much of a rush to pack my own, so I just went without.   What a mistake. ...

Dietician Visit

Another milestone in the journey into celiac world...   Last week I visited the dietician as part of my post-diagnosis follow-up. (I was diagnosed on 4/6 of this year.)   I was lucky. The dietician didn't know a thing about celiac. I knew more than she did just by doing research on this site and others and by shopping a couple of times for gluten-free food. The reason I was lucky was t...

Celiac On The Job

If you've read my previous blog, you know that I'm newly diagnosed.   I'd like to hear from others on how you handled telling co-workers about your condition. Or, did you choose not to tell them because it's none of their business.   I chose to tell mine because I've been at the same job for 12+ years and know them very well. I had a birthday coming up and our office tradition is to bring f...

Greetings From A Newbie/my Diagnosis Experience

This is my first post in the gluten-free forum. Please bear with me while I get familiar with the controls. (in case it posts twice or something.)   I was diagnosed with celiac disease ten days ago. I was completely blindsided by the diagnosis. It was discovered during a series of tests I had for a routine physical. I also have hypothyroidism (underactive) and took a blood test to check ...
