  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Airplane Food/taking Food On Airplanes

    Whenever I fly, I get a signed note from my doctor saying I have a medical condition and that I must bring my food with me. I usually keep it on hand whenever I go anywhere vacation-y; it even got me a complimentary minifridge for a hotel room that didn't come with one! I've never had a problem (except at an amusement park once, where it came in handy!) but I like to think this would give me the backing to challenge anyone who would try to take my safe food away!

    Is it possible you ate something you're not accustomed to that you could be allergic/intolerant to that isn't gluten? I know I though I was getting glutened all the time... until I was tested for other food allergies.
  4. The pancakes are ok - I'm not a fan of their stuff because its too heavy for me. The bean flour makes the stuff so dense, it makes me kind of nauseous. I am a huge fan of gluten free pantry - their french bread mix is the best I've found so far.
  5. You can try to get it "wet cleaned" from a dry cleaner using carbon dioxide rather than perc. Call a few and see if they do it - just make sure they get any smells out since its not as effective as the other kind:P
  6. I would not get one for celiac alone, unless you have ever had an incident that you think could result in it injuring you. I'm allergic to wheat, and sometimes flour in the air gives me asthma, so I had it added just in case and leave it on my purse handle rather than wear it. Might not be a bad idea for a child, though. I wish I had had one when I was younger to fend off parents who thought I was picky.

    I've been in Columbus for 2 years - please email let me know if you want my contact info to talk about good gluten-free places here!
  8. Celiac And Dating/relationships

    Jason - I wouldn't dwell on this too much. As far as diseases go, this is not one of the bad ones (despite what it may feel like at times!). I'll take one I can manage with diet any day. I would much prefer passing on a celiac gene than a BRCA gene. That said, society has become much more accepting of food-based illness in recent years than in the past. So, even if you do date someone who accepts your condition, fall madly in love, and have children who happen to have the genetic tendency toward celiac disease, it will probably be easier for them than it has been for you. There's also a vaccine in research stages, so this may be a moot point. As far as dating goes, there are amazing people out there who will not blow the issue out of the water, and will even watch out for your health issues. I'm a big fan of non-eating dates until I get to know the person. Movies, minigolf, etc. Good luck! -Katherine
  9. Signicant Other Leaving You...

    Pete - This same thing happened to me when I was diagnosed - the guy I had been dating for two years kept pressuring me to ignore the diagnosis because it was "too complicated." It was a constant source of strife because he didn't respect my needs or condition, and we went our separate ways. Now, I see this as a silver lining to the disease. I have a quick way to test my compatibility with potential love interests. Are they ok with ordering off a restricted menu at PG Changs? Or do they freak out because I can't drink beer? Its a shortcut to seeing how reliable they will be with these issues in the future, because being with someone who sabotages your health isn't really an option. Good luck!
