Hey, I have a huge problem. I went to visit my friend who lives outside orlando, fl. He neglected to mention that his house was infested with roaches (and i'm not exagerating...they are EVERYWHERE)! I need to get out of here now, but I don't know where to go or what to do! I can't just go anywhere because I need to be able to get food or find restaurants with gluten free stuff. I have some gluten free snacks and enough food for a few meals, but not enough to survive the whole 2 weeks I was planning on being here.

I can just buy a ticket to go home, but I'm already in Florida. I might as well try to salvage some sort of vacation. Please help! The only thing I can think of is going to stay at a disney hotel for a few days and then fly back early. I seem to remember seeing on here that they cater pretty well to the diet. I'm freaking out. I feel like there are bugs crawling all over me right now!

What should I do?!?!?!

HELP!!!!!!

Nice Friend, I think you should have been told about roaches before you were invited to stay !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or did you bring them along for the trip? I hear they are good eating dipped in chocolate!!!!!!!!!

I too. would be out of there is a heartbeat....... I can tell you Disney is excellent. You can find gluten-free food in all the parks.

You could get a room at an outside Disney hotel also. There is a couple of places to shop for gluten-free food..... I think there is a publix grocery & a couple of health food stores. I was in them when I was in around Disney .

I don't think you should come home until your vacation days are complete. Go to the beach or something to enjoy your vacation. For the price of travel & also how hard it is at times to make room in a budget for a vacation I say STAY & ENJOY it...

Sorry you are having a bad experience.....I hope it gets better.

Look for condos and long term stay hotels with kitchens on the internet to rent. Below are the names of some of the long term stay hotel brands

Residence Inn by Marriott

TownPlace Suites by Marriott

Extended Stay America

Hiton has a brand equivalent to Residence Inn but I can not remember the name of it. I am also sure there are local hotels with kitchens or kitchenettes.

You can also rent a room with only a Mircowave and a dorm size refrigerator. I have seen this setup at Embassy Suites and some Best Westerns.

One other option is to buy a lot of roach traps and roach spray and stay where you are.

Good Luck with whatever solution you choose

    Been doing it for a week now, I am trying doctors best and got a deal on some from Vitacost both in capsule form to avoid the crap they put in the other forms I found it available. I am actually using both one in the morning one in the afternoon. Might not work for everyone but I am seeing why many bodybuilders swear by it in the gym. I just figured if it might help people that get muscle fatigue easily with daily life. 
    For what it's worth, I've noticed that if it's just iodine I will not get any other symptoms. In addition to the rash, I typically get GI symptoms, fatigue, and sometimes joint swelling when I ingest gluten. I don't typically eat seafood or stuff with lots of iodized salt, but sometimes I do on special occasions knowing that there will be some relatively minor consequences. Typically this is because I am traveling - canned tuna, salty snacks, jerky etc. are often the only nutritionally bala
While a Celiac reaction requires actual consumption of gluten, I take no risks.  Sunscreen might melt into my mouth a long bike trip or I could bite a nail.   I use CeraVe lotion for my face.  In winter, I use their heavier cream.  I also use the Equate “CeraVe” version by Walmart which is made in Canada.  I use a lot of sunscreen.  I buy Equate which does not contain gluten, is recommended by Consumer reports and is inexpensive.  Do not use CeraVe sunscreen.  For some reason they changed t
