"you Might Be A Celiac If....."

Recommended Posts

I actually had this happen.

81. You've rolled your eyes when a non-celiac has said to you in a health food store, "I've (voluntarily) tried the gluten free diet before, I felt great"

When I was first diagnosed right before Christmas, the girl at the local health food store said....ok, yes, I can show you around. I am gluten free as well - have been for a couple of years. We have chosen a gluten free lifestyle in our family - much healthier. I don't have to but I like it better that way.

I'm standing there with my mouth open (had to remind myself to close it...) thinking who, in their right mind, would "choose" gluten free....I think I've told everyone I know that one and they agreed with me...

Still makes me laugh. I'm glad you guys brought this thread back to life. Well worth the read just for the laugh and the realization that everyone is in the same boat!

:rolleyes:

Staying virus free is an excellent by product of this necessity! :D

For me, working with dogs all day, every day, I'm handling urine, feces, animal by-products (pig ears, cow parts etc.), and GLUTEN in the dog food!

I don't scratch my nose without first washing! My hands are red and raw up to my elbows! :unsure:

Oh well, it beats the heck out of a lot of jobs! :D

Yes, there's wheat filling mixed into the filling in some boxing gloves, too. No joke!

You might be a celiac, if...

you're embarrased at a buffet, because someone announced, nobody would be allowed to get food, before you did.

your significant other bursts out with "I swear something's wrong with you! Go to the doctor!" after you farted and he accidentaly smelled it. (true story)

a friend gives you some gluten-snacks as a christmas gift, even though you told them 100 times, you're glutenfree and what that is. (true story as well)

you get excited, because your favorite fun park offers a glutenfree day with lunch in a pavillon especially made glutenfree for celiacs.

The thing with the gluten-snack at christmas happened to me. Actually one of my students gave me a mug filled with pretzels in there with hershey kissed attached to them. I said "thanks for the mug, I can sure use it for my hot chocolate" and gave the pretzels to my husband...

Hugs, Stef

You must be Celiac if.......

you've gone home hungry from Thanksgiving dinner at a friend's house. (true story :))

Angel,

This happens to me all the time, I go out, come home, and hey, I'm still hungry. Never ever seem to get as full as I did in a previous life, I have just lost my capacity to eat too much.

You must be coeliac if ......

the day the plumber arrives you have stomach problems and need the loo a bit more frequently That happened to me this morning, plumber arrives and I had to go up the road to use the public loos!
