Recommended Posts

Guest imsohungry

If....

you can button your pants in the morning, but they no longer fasten after breakfast

If....

"gas prices" makes you think of your grocery bill instead of your car tank ;)

You might be Celiac if:

There is a 10-fold chance of your kids saying: "She's in the bathroom" when someone calls...... (even though you drill it through their heads over and over again not to say that!!!! How embarrassing!) ;)

Haven't seen this one yet...

You might be a Celiac if.... you wash your hands AT LEAST 100 times a day! :blink:

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

It will be quite a while before Katie and celiac3270 can run for president but in a few years they could at least run for the House of Representatives. :)


If all the world is indeed a stage and we are merely players then will someone give me the script because I have no f!@#$%^ clue as to what is going on!

What does not kill you makes you stronger.

Nobody cares about losers and quitters never win. If you fail with the cowards then what's the message you send?

Can't get it right, no matter what I do. Might as well be me and keep fu@$ing up for you. - Brian Thomas (Halloween, the greatest metal band ever!)

Started low-carb diet early 2004, felt better but not totally gluten-free. Went 100% gluten-free early 2005 and life has never been better.

Stranger things have happened. :lol:

18 for the House, 30 for the Senate and 35 for president along with being a natural born citizen. You don't have to be a natural born citizen for the House and Senate but I don't remeber how many years you have to be a naturalized citizen before you can run. Those are the only restrictions so Celiacs can run for office. :)

That gives you a good 18 months to get your campaign going before the 2006 elections. :)

you may be a celiac if:

when you go on vacation, you have two bags...one for your clothes and one for your food.

the one for your food is bigger.

seeing the words "gluten free" on a mainstream item has ever caused you to dance a jig in the middle of the canned food aisle in the grocery store.

and you are not in the least embarrassed by that.

you've ever listened to someone complaining about the awful stomach virus they had over the weekend and thought, "wuss".

You might be a celiac if:

You can use your loaf of bread in place of weights when excersizing.

You are a regular at Outback, PF Changs and the local sushi restaurant.

The people at TCBY know you and immediately go get your topping from its original container in the back of the store.

You always have a packet of salad dressing/soy sauce in your bag at all times.

You bring your own sauce when you go out to eat.


gluten-free since 2/6/04
