My skin is getting so super sensitive since avoiding gluten (1month now). If I touch anything with gluten or iodine, I get blisters or something equally unsightly and uncomfortable. It's so upsetting (and makes me feel so hideous), I just want to lock myself in a cave and not come out till I look normal. I feel like after a lifetime of this, maybe I'll never see relief. And the world is out to get me (at least my skin). It cleared up right away when I went gluten-free, too, but a couple iodine and gluten exposures really made things bad. (seaweed snacks and in shampoo and some packaged tortillas. The iodine I get, but blisters after touching a closed package? Really?)

I'm so frustrated. And feeling ugly. I hate that gluten is everywhere! I wish I lived a bubble. :(

glutenfree since 6/2011. sick for 30 years.

borderline blood test, negative biopsy.

SEVERELY sensitive celiac with DH. sensitive to contact and ingestion.

asthma (was severe; improved exponentially after 6/11)

spina bifida & childhood SCI at L4/L5 (possibly complicated by weak bones)

countless fractures and infections.

i once listed over 100 symptoms or conditions that improved or were eliminated after 6/11.

very vegan. and, of course, i've also discovered some other food allergies.
