Being Human Is Tough

I BBQ'ed last night with my boyfriend and he got something new and I didn't see that it was rolled in panko. So although there is a slim chance that I was not cross contaminated, the likelihood is pretty high that I was. It usually takes a few days for my system to shut down and then it takes weeks for it to right itself. In march there was a crouton in my salad that I didn't eat and I was sick for 5 weeks.

I am trying really hard not to kick myself. It won't do anything but make me feel worse and actually increase the stress on my system, making it harder to roll through this bump in the road.

There is a part of me that wants to scream, in fear, & in frustration. I can't be perfect. Yet anything less than perfection has it's price (a very high one!) and even then I'm not 100% gauranteed to be protected.

breathe, breathe, breathe. I just had to vent. I'm so scared. :ph34r:

Kick & scream at the boyfriend! Might make you feel better. :angry:

Because you caught it right at the beginning, maybe you will be OK.

I think, from personal experience...it has alot to do with positive energy and not letting you stress yourself out.

Try not to worry about it. I know, I mean I really know how hard it is, but worrying about something that may or may not happen isn't a productive way to use your energy or emotions.

Try to think that everything is ok, positive energy, that your going to be fine. I know it's hard, but it helps. And, if big IF you get sick, it will pass. That one is even harder to hold into thought. B)

Sending positive energy your way!!

It's okay to get mad & angry over the dumb little things we all forget about. But consider it a learning experience.Its never wrong if you have learned a valuable lesson...next time with a lesson learned you will remember to check every little detail....honestly if your boyfriend isn't gluten-free even tho he knows you have celiac & he should be reading labels as well, it all comes down to you, you are responsible for you....I've married for a long time to the same person & he understands gluten-free I would never punish him if he had a lapse of is it okay or not....

This happens alot to many but the lesson learned is what will stop this...
