Can Cross Contamination Do This?

Recommended Posts

I had a miserable sleeping night last night. Reminds me of before going gluten free. I've been careful with eating, shampoo, soap, medication, etc. This past week, I was at many family gatherings eating of course. I'm sure that I must have been glutened, the reaction was what I went through many times before I went gluten free. My whole body was on fire along with the tingly legs. I am sure that I got CC from all the family gatherings. I tried to be so careful, but I'm sure my family wasn't. I will just have to not worry what they think. I always brought a nice gluten free salad. I should have stuck with that.

It doesn't take much to make you feel bad. How many times have I kicked myself saying "why did I let my guard down?" Live and learn I guess.

That seems to be the hardest!!! You don't want to offend anyone or make more work by asking what's in everything. Family gatherings are worse for CC than restuarnts...atleast for me!!!

I hope you feel better soon! i guess we just have to learn to be more outward with it! :D

You are right that family gatherings seems to be worse than eating out. I've had much better success there. Of course tomorrow I have a graduation party. I'm going there on a full stomach. I've had over a week of family gatherings and I think it just all caught up with me last night. I did a stupid thing at work this week too now that I think of it. I have the lovely job of putting out coffee and cookies every morning. I always wash my hands after and got side tracked and didn't, so I'm sure that didn't help either. Grrrrr
