I was diagnosed 2 weeks ago and have been doing pretty good about staying Gluten Free. I know I am still dealing with some cross contamination as we don't have the money to throw all our cross contaminated food away, although we are working on it and I try to avoid it. But, last night I was out with my kids and my friend had cheesy bread. I talked myself into the fact that one little pieced wouldn't kill me. OH MY GOD. About an hour later it felt like I had a ball stuck in my esophogus and I woke up this morning and it is still there. It hurts so bad!! Aparently one tiny piece is THAT BAD. I think I have learned my lesson.

My dietician told me there would be slip ups but I feel like an idiot.

Think of it as training yourself successfully to be gluten free.......

Yeah, I'm at the point where when I pass a bakery with beautiful cakes in the window I literally see a box of rat poison. And my DH areas itch in sympathy and remembrance.

I ate some gluten-free Lays at my FIL's this week. Knew better (cc from gluteny hands in the bag, etc.). Within 30 minutes I wanted to hurl. Won't do that again.

Don't feel like an idiot, hon! ;) You did the most human thing there is. You tested it to see what would happen. Not only did you test gluten, but you went for dairy, too--wow, you are a daredevil :lol:

Maybe (subconsciously) you just needed to convince yourself that gluten is really that toxic to you and so, whatever teensy bit of "denial" was left just got squashed big time.

You're going to be all right! Drink a LOT of water today.

Best wishes!

If you are having thowing-up issues (or hurling :unsure:) , you might have another intolerance. Many people have has issues with Potato chips and not necessarily related to gluten. You might look into soy or canola.

So far that particular feeling has been reserved for that one time. Only other time I've been quesy is from too much sugar/fat. Or the stupid iron pills. But potatoes are ok. I've been fine with other fried chips - corn, potato. I'm pretty ure it was cc from gluten. My FIL is a widower - and I am the only female - surrounded by every possible age of male - all of which slap gluten around and are not exactly super sanitary.

I knew better.

Don't feel dumb. At first I wanted to figure out just how sensative I was, I also wanted to make sure of what I was delaing with and reacting to so I did the same and every single time I had a reaction and the more you stay gluten-free you will probably find your reactions to be worse with time, at least I have.

I have thought about doing the same thing..just trying it to see what would happen, but I haven't YET. My fear is that when I was diagnosed I had no symptoms what so ever. I have read many posts from people who stated they had mild symptoms to begin with and then when they did get gluten in their systems they got violently ill. I don't do ill well!!! I have only been gluten free for one month but our home has been gluten free for two, since my daughter was diagnosed a month prior. She also had no symtoms. I was told that a crumb or just the slightest cross contamination is as bad as eating a loaf of bread, does anyone know if that is true??

Thanks for the tip I just got diagnosed last week and am trying to figure this whole gluten-free and cross contamination thing out.

I think a lot of us have done that. Don't feel bad. I did it three times! I kept thinking that it was all in my head, and so I tested it on three different occasions. Not THAT'S stupid! :blink:

I gave all mine away except I forgot the Beano, big mistake! I gave the food to a friend who is down on luck. Lost job, car died etc.

I let her decide to keep or throw away, some was quite old, some very fresh.

Like the other person said, don't eat canola. You can try it when you are better if you want to go through all that again.

gluten-free foods will be easier to find in the future as more and more people buy them. Sprouts has some, Whole Foods some.

Best thing to do is just eat fruits vegetables and gluten-free breads and fresh meat or fish and salads. That's a great diet.

I'm down to one slice of bread a day.

Tonite I make a gluten-free pumpkin pie.
