Contaminated. Help?

Recommended Posts

Hey my name is Jacqui And I am 17 from Idaho. I am have had Celiacs for about a year now but iamnew to the site. I got contaminated a few days ago. My stomach feels like crap. What do I do. Is there any home remedies or do i just wait it out?

I cant believe that this site has a place for teens. It is nice to knowthat i ma not alone. Some times at my school it sucks because I can nver eat from the Cafeteria, I always have to brig my lunch and my friends dont understand. I mean they saythey do but they have no clue. If I get teased about how I am inconvient to them about eating at their favorite resturant The Olive Garden one more tiem I swear I am going ot scream. I mean i know that they are justjoing but like I dont have it hard enough. Dont they think that i want to eat their to. Wel actually honestly i dont really miss it but whatever. I found out that non f there food is fresh and that everything is packaged. Who wants to eat theat anyway. Sorry about the rant , i guess that it is just nice to let i out to people that actually understand. So please write ot me that would be so cool to here from people like me. Talk to you later.

From Jacqui.

I know what you mean. i have to bring my own lunches everyday too. my friends say they understand and they acknowledge it but they are still constantly asking me if i want some of their cookies, or pizza, or crackers and all that stuff and i feel like yelling at them to quit offering me. when ever my stomach feels upset i always either sip cold soda, or hot gluten-free soup. It settles my stomach. so yah if you want to talk any time feel free

First off, that really sucks that you got contaminated :(

When I get contaminated I try to eat alot of the stuff I'm allowed(rice, potatoes, fruit) and drink a TON of water. I sometimes feel sicker when I do that but it seems to pass faster...only a couple days. I've only tried this once but it seems to have worked. good luck :)

I seem to be getting contaminated a lot more (as most of you read in my rants about the college I go to). When I get contaminated I try to eat light foods, because whenever I'm in pain, the more I eat (of gluten-free) the more pain I'm in and the longer the side effects last (Although, sometimes, I end up not eating at all for a day or 2 because its too severe). I drink a lot of tea or coffee or milk (i'm not a fan of water lol), because contamination for me = diarrhea, so I keep myself hydrated. Hope this helps.

I am so happy that this site is for teens, but I am a mom of a freshman at college and she is awaiting her results and would just die to know I am asking other teens or young adults this question regarding college stuents. I know you can advise the college and they can help you with the inschool food service program. My daughter is quite convinced as so am I that she is gluten intollerant. How do you handle the late night snacks the drinking, the i want pizza and the late night wawa food runs for college students. I would like to say that this all doesn't happen, but I would be very unrealistic in believing that these things don't happen the first year of college. I can send up some snacks, but those minifridges/micowave don't leave much room. Eating is always a problem the first and second year of college, never mind be diagnosed with celiac disease. Anyone have any advise for first year college stuents who love pizza and junk food and don't want to stand out from the other kids?

I can understand how terrible getting contaminated can be. Don't lose hope - you will learn as you go forward and things get easier. You can always come to this site when you have questions or frustrations. Good luck, and know that you are not alone!
