Need Encouragement

Recommended Posts

ashleigh2, you have made four posts here since you joined, and all four of them are either insulting or contain false information.

 

(I don't know if anyone else noticed, but this poster also said this, in the thread about the work cafeteria:

 

 "2. You can educate your place of employment about what it means to be gluten free (which really means no grain-NO GRAINS AT ALL)"

 

I kindly explained to her that she was wrong and that many celiacs do fine with things like rice and corn.)

 

Here at this forum we stick to things that have a basis in scientific truth. If you are as much of an expert as you claim to be, you would have read  REPUTABLE scientific papers and studies and you would KNOW that the things you claim are false. The last thing we need here is to have someone try to mislead newbies and discourage them.


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

Thanks guys :)  This site has always been helpful and people are so supportive. Getting that one harsh post was a jolt, and I temporarily wondered about whether I wanted to post again. I wasn't going to let it stop me, this site means too much to me, but it has done my heart so much good to read your responses. You guys are the best!

FruitE- I am the first person to tell people to suck it up and fix the issue. Even I didn't think you sounded like you were playing a victim in that post. Sounded like you were trying to handle your problems. Not sure if that poster even read your post.

She said that because she is likely a member of the Gluten Free Society and a " trained professional in gluten awareness". . Let us recall that dr. osborne claims that corn and rice have the kind of gluten protein that makes celiacs sick.   He says this, despite what leading celiac researchers say to the contrary.

I'm already a gluten free low sugar ovo vegetarian (which is a difficult lifestyle to maintain as is) and I can't even imagine how complicated and limited my diet would be if I had to remove all gluten free grains on top of that!

 

Sounds like the "Gluten Free Society" is propagating some false information!
