Perfectly normal. When I get CC'd it takes three weeks before I'm back to myself. I don't remember your original thread but if you haven't done so yet, please go to the Newbie 101 thread in the coping section. It'll teach you how to avoid CC. And if you can possibly do so, stay away from restaurants.


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!

I don't understand this aversion to restaurants. Here in Omaha, other than fast food, most every other restaurant is supportive and easy to work with. There are many, many with dedicated gluten-free menus. As to length of time for contamination symptoms to subsiDe, it is generally a couple of hours to at most two days for me.

My hubby typically recovers in just a few days too.

Not me! I was diagnosed over two years ago (anemia was pretty much my only symptom) and it took me about a year or longer to feel good and resolve all deficiencies. I think was accidentally glutened a few times during my recent vacation in July. Five weeks later, I am still suffering. Now I have abdominal pain, indigestion, fatigue, body aches. My antibodies were re-tested and they are off the charts. I still have not been able to identify the source. I went to high-end restaurants, those that had great reviews written by celiacs on Find Me Gluten Free, and I ate at my parent's house and supervised all food prep. I am the gluten police and my home is gluten free. Yet, something got past me! You bet, I am eating at home for a while until my symptoms resolve.

The point is that everyone presents differently and heals differently.

I agree that it is different for everyone.  My last glutening was at a restaurant, a Mexican joint on the road, where I expressly, twice, , explained that I have celiacs, and asked for corn tortillas.  I learned, too late, that they had instead given me wheat tortillas.  But it was a needless glutening.  Oh well.

Omaha is one of the few places in the midwest that has great food period. It's no wonder you have so many restaurants with gluten-free menus. But if one lives in a small town, not near a city, restaurants are a definite no-no unless they are owned and run by someone with celiac.

Sadly one of the cruddy parts after us Celiacs get better after going gluten-free is learning what happens with accidents occur.  Everyone's reaction differs, and eventually you will get an understanding of your body after a glutening.  Just try to take care of yourself well to get through it, and I do hope it improves soon.

 

And now I want to visit omaha.  Already would like to be locked in the omaha steak factory overnight :)

I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in January 2013. I also have Lupus and Common Variable Immunodeficiency(CVID) for which I am on IVIG.

if i get cc'd, it takes 14 days (not 13, not 15) for my body to get back to 'normal' - i thought maybe that would change since i haven't messed up in a very long time.  nope.  still 14 days.  don't buy sandwich meat that they slice 10" away from the sandwich making station from people who never heard of celiac.  lesson learned!!

 

lolz - cyclinglady, i thought when you said 'not me' that you were talking about me :D  (it's not always about me, i know, i know....lololz)
