Glutened By... You Guessed It!

Recommended Posts

It is patently wrong that my husband, who feels like dirt right now, can gluten me by forgetting to brush his teeth before he kisses me.

Wrong, wrong, wrong and so not fair. NOTHING can be spontaneous in my life. Nothing.


Lots of doctors diagnosed me with lots of things including IBS, lactose intolerance, wheat intolerance, and quite a few of them threw up their hands in total confusion.

Had GI symptoms, allergy symptoms and unexplained illness my whole life.

Jan. 2010 Diagnosed celiac at the age of 40.

Ready to get well and get on with my life!

SSG - Here's the stupid thing I did the other day: Making dinner with Hub. Without thinking, I picked up the beer on the counter next to me & took a drink. Thought "Which gluten-free beer is this? It tastes different?" I had grabbed Hubs beer not mine! AAAGH!

dang, this is something i have heard about but it never cross my mind i should be vigilant about. my husband is already having a hard time dealing with our families restricted diet. he'll probably laugh at me when i tell him to brush his teeth more often.

i'm sorry you got sick from your hubby. that really is a mood killer.

My husband believes I am being paranoid, but he's not eating anything different from me so he hasn't gotten me yet. I'm waiting for it...he brushes his teeth twice a day but hates flossing (he uses a waterpik instead).

I guess I can just bring him here and say LOOOK!! IT HAPPENS!!


Diagnosed with Gluten Allergy April 2010. Family history of Celiac disease and bowel cancers. Already feeling a billion times better since going gluten free.

OMG Karen, I've had dreams that I did something like that! Or I've had the urge to grab a gluten thing that my kids are eating and absentmindedly pop it into my mouth. What did you do??? You must have freaked out.

What can you do? Hub said "Go throw up". I didn't because it doesn't really empty your stomach. I just went on with dinner. Had a few bathroom issues during the night, headache & "delicate" stomach next day. Maybe I should stick to wine or vodka.

I have to admit I thought it was paranoia too. I'm still foggy headed today and some tummy issues, but not as bad as yesterday.

I think I would try to throw up too. As nasty as that is, I would probably freak out. Thankfully it was just one swig!
