I have some paranoia setting in. Is there anyway to delete a post? I posted about my Christmas story, and I have a few reasons why I want to delete that I won't get into. Is there any way to delete it? Or do I just need to deal with the fact I put a big private story on the internet??
 

I am  not seeing anything that identifies you.  This could be a lot of people's story.   Only Admin can delete posts and threads,  but he rarely does.  People took time to read it and answer you.  It is a good cautionary tale for others.

Ok. I will let it go. I am very sensitive and seeing so few responded with over 700 views bothers me. But there were other reasons as well. 

Lots of people view and never respond for many reasons (like they are not knowledgeable enough or what another member said would be identical information).  Remember, you posted while being sick.  It was just a rant.  Plus, you are anonymous here.  It is one reason why this forum is strong.  It is one reason why I do not belong to a Facebook group (even a private group).    I do not really want EVERYONE to know I have Celiac Disease.  What if I was applying for a job?  

Soon, you will feel better!  Do something positive today!

Ok. Thanks everyone. I am just too sensitive about celiac. My sister understands how to be sure food is gluten free but she didnt want to take the time to do it and double check. Thats what upsets me. Good thing I am careful and responsible for what I eat. I have learned not to trust anyone else but myself.

Good for you.  Honestly, my parents are great but I do not trust them to cook safely for me and my husband.  Ask them about low carb foods (Dad has diabetes), and they are walking encyclopedias.  I stay with them for weeks at a time.  I keep a bin of my gluten-free cooking tools at their house.  I read all labels and supervise all preparation.  But to show up and eat?  Never.  I would get glutened for sure.  It is just not on their radar.

There are a few gluten-free ladies in my orchestra.  They offer me gluten-free goodies.  But I never take them.  They reside in shared households and I do not know if their cookware is clean and gluten-free.  One lady is offended and the other gets that I have celiac disease and my reaction is brutal and long to heal.  

I trust only one other person and that is a girlfriend who has celiac disease.  She gets it!  Heck, I do not even trust my hubby who has been gluten-free for 15 years.  That is because since my diagnosis, I have been handling all the food.  If it is in the house, it is gluten free.  If eating out, he knows to go to only a few select restaurants.  For the most part, I pack him a lunch.  He takes more risks, but he just gets sick for a week.  Me it's about three months (as documented by my GI).  He has become less vigilant because he knows I am the gluten police.  

What I can say, is that your family seems to be supporting your diet.  For many, their families do not care or even make an attempt (I am not talking about cooking).  My Mom buys me lactose free milk (though I do not need it anymore), gluten-free chips and other pre-packaged foods for me prior to our arrival.  The rest of the family knows that hubby and I get the first pass on the buffet line (that I oversaw the food preparation).  The kids know not to double dip and everyone buys squeeze bottle for condiments.  An open bag of chips?  We do not eat them.  Who knows if the kids washed up.  Beside Gluten, they could contain germs!

So, be glad that your sister cares. Just the mental support is priceless! ?

    This is great advice, my mother and grand mother (both Hispanic) always would get the freshest ones and dip in the sauce before rolling. When reheating it varied with tortillas on freshness (and how much of a hurry) but they either heated...
