  1. For the first time in a long while I seem to have glutened myself quite nicely! I still don't know how it happened, though I suspect cross-contamination was the issue. As I lie on my couch, curled up in a ball, holding my stomach (and making frequent trips to the 'loo'), I wondered how other people deal with their accidental reactions? Do you find that any pain killers help? What about anti-nausea medication? Magic bags? I'd almost forgotten how uncomfortable/nauseating/painful/tiresome the experience of glutening is. Has anybody found methods of relief post-'oops'? I dread tomorrow when the sore stomach really becomes apparent. :/ Thanks for any advice you can offer!
  2. Hi there! I'm not in Korea yet, but I'll be arriving in early July. I was wondering if you're feeling any better about it since this last post. I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2005, and I have to say that it has been one of my bigger concerns when preparing to teach for the year in Korea. I've done a lot of research online about sources for gluten-free foods in Korea, advice from other Celiacs in Korea etc. I haven't gotten the practical experience myself yet, but some of these folks seem pretty credible. If you want I can send along some of my info for you, as well as some websites to check out re: gluten free foods in Korea. If you have any advice that you would care to share I would also greatly appreciate it! I hope it's getting better for you - I'm trying to get myself prepared to feel 'under the weather' again for a while until I can figure the foods out over there... but I'm still a bit worried. Thanks, ~Kate
