I have been gluten free for over 2 weeks and I've started having dreams about eating gluten! LOL! The two nights ago I dreamt I ate a piece of cinnamon roll and felt so guilty when I woke up. Then last night I dreamt that I ate gluten on accident!!! Has anyone else had wheat dreams?!

I used to have them all the time. It's been a long time since I've had one though. I went gluten-free in December of 06. The gluten-free dreams for me were a type of anxiety dream. They were a reflection of how anxious and frustrated I was about going gluten-free. I never felt guilty for eating gluten, but rather horrified, angry and scared. But that's a reflection of my issues with the gluten-free diet. Everyone has different frustrations and it's not uncommon for them to manifest in dreams.

I dream about pancakes... butter- and syrup- soaked pancakes. Not just eating them... but making them on the skillet. I relish the entire process. Luckily, you can learn to make your favorite treats using gluten-free flours or *hopefully* find a gluten-free bakery in your area. :)

I'm excited to make these. No guilt... except for those pesky calories.

When I was first diagnosed I had nightmares about eating gluten. Finally they went away after a couple of weeks.

I had my first gluten dream last week - I was eating graham crackers! LOL! In my dream, at first I thought they were gluten-free and then realized that they tasted "normal" and then I was trying to throw them up - I thought it was funny that it took 2 months to dream about it.

I had my first gluten dream last night! I was at a party (I think with my soccer team, most of whom have been extremely supportive since I went gluten-free on July 8/09). Someone was eating from a bag of chips and I just took a handful and started eating them! Someone asked me "you can eat those??" and I was like "omg I forgot!" I checked the ingredients and sure enough they were not gluten-free ...When I woke up I was relieved that I hadn't actually been poisoned!

I think all of us have these dreams. Mine was a delicious fire grilled hot dog on a bun. It was so good, then I remembered I can have buns...I woke up in tears, still worried I had glutened myself. It ruined my entire day!!!

Hello, new here and new to the whole thing! My husband has been battling this rash and assorted digestive issues for years. He was diagnosed with contact dermatitis by the dermatologist, had some steroid injections and various creams over the last couple of years, and then in November he went to the ER and they said eczema and gave him steroid pills. This was after a huge bloom that pretty much hit him from head to toe, where it had been mostly arms and legs before. He finally concluded he
